Joe’s Bar & Restaurant Details
The simple and functional restaurant is hidden off the beaten path and somewhat tucked away from downtown Put-in-Bay. When leaving the downtown area, head up Catawba Avenue keeping Hooligans and then Reel Bar on your right side. When you come to the stop sign, Joe’s Bar will be on your left! You can’t miss the Red Barn style building!
Conveniently located for those camping at South Bass Island State Park, Joe’s Bar offers up a respite from the craziness of downtown in a peaceful, wooded setting.
.The picnic tables in their large outdoor patio are a perfect place to enjoy one of their famous Sloppy Joe sandwiches or an Artichoke Asiago Dip. The fun yard games make this a place to waste away the hours. Challenge your friends to a supersized game of Jenga or Corn Hole, an island favorite pastime.
