At the Lime Kiln Dock of the Miller Ferry is a great spot to cool off. Ice cream offerings include milkshakes and cones, and they will surely help you beat the heat on those hot summer days. Also, Dockside offers hotdogs and pizza by the slice from Cameo Pizza of Putinbay. So, whether you are coming or going, they are ready to serve you at the Lime Kiln.


Victory Landing

1523 Catawba Avenue, Put-in-Bay, OH 43456

Call for reservations.

Victory Landing, in South Bass Island State Park, is the place to go if you're looking to escape the madness of downtown. Get breakfast, lunch, dinner or snacks and enjoy the beautiful view from the deck of Lake Erie and sunbathers on the stone beach. The playground and swings will keep the kids occupied; there's also room for Frisbee, volleyball, softball, whatever. Jet ski rentals are nearby.


Mama Maria's

266 Delaware Avenue, Put-in-Bay, OH 43456

Call for reservations.

Nothing quite hits the spot after a late night like one of Mama Maria's homemade meatball sandwiches or a slice of gooey cheese pizza. Luckily, Mama Maria knows we crave her cooking at all hours of the day and night, so her place stays open as late as the bars (or later). The patio makes for a great place to take in the view of the harbor and downtown Putinbay at any time.
