The Fish Shack is one of the famed Boardwalk family of restaurants at Put-in-Bay. At the Fish Shack, you’ll find the freshest fish you can get anywhere on the island, and a seat right on the dock. The Lake Erie Perch & Walleye is hand-breaded and to die for! The Boardwalk has been serving Put-in-Bay with its multiple casual dining options since 1985, and it’s also a popular low key place to meet for drinks. There’s something for everyone at The Boardwalk.
Fish Shack Entertainment On The Main Deck
You’ll find all ages of live entertainment at The Boardwalk on summer weekends. The waterfront bars upper and lower are the perfect place to have a cocktail and enjoy the open-air and the views of the lake at night. Unlike other Put in Bay restaurants, The Boardwalk has four restaurants in one and offers a wider variety of food so the whole group can find something they enjoy!
The main deck of The Boardwalk has three counter service restaurants, one of which is the Fish Shak. Get fish that just came out of the lake! Walk up to the counter and order, get your number, and then rally with your group and enjoy your fish while they have whatever they got from one of the other two restaurants. You can trade so everyone tries a little of everything!
There’s plenty of seating at The Boardwalk both inside and outside. You can enjoy a leisurely lunch, and hang out with a drink and enjoy the view of the lake. On a clear day, you’ll even be able to see Middle Bass and Gibraltar Islands from here!
The boats sailing in and out of the Put-in-Bay Marinas make the perfect backdrop for your seafood meal at Fish Shak. And if you need to wash it down with an adult beverage, you only need to take a few steps to the Burgee Bar, where you’ll find the perfect drink to quench your thirst.
What else is at The Boardwalk beside Fish Shak?
Fish Shak at the Boardwalk is the perfect spot for a relaxed seafood experience at Put-in-Bay. Enjoy walleye straight from the lake! You won’t have to spend your day catching fish, and instead, you can try some of the many things to do in Put in Bay like the Rolling Pub or get a Put-in-Bay Golf cart rental and tour the island with some friends!
With so many Put-in-Bay attractions, you may feel like you can’t get the full island experience in one day. Don’t be afraid to book a few days at a Put-in-Bay Hotel. However, the sooner you book, the better because lodging fills up fast! If a home rental is more your speed, the Put-in-Bay Villas are the only downtown option!
