We stopped at Ritas Cantina here because with a coupon if you bought two margaritas you got a free sombrero. Well, we got the fresh watermelon margaritas and they were outstanding so we ended up getting two more! The bartender was fun and friendly. Love this little place!

Would have loved to spend an afternoon here, but there are so many things to do at Put-in-Bay. So the margaritas at Ritas Cantina are delicious, and they have a distinct twist on them with several different types. The scenery from up top is excellent. It looks over the water and Marina.

We had the finest time ever drinking margaritas with friends and family at Ritas Cantina on our yearly trip to Put In Bay! After a rocky run-in with the weather, we almost didn't go. We decided to go anyway, and thanks to our bartender Taylor we had a wonderful time and some damn good margaritas!

Sittin' on the Dock of Put-in-Bay-It was a sizzling afternoon, and we were parched, so we stopped by Ritas Cantina for a Margarita. They presented a wide selection of Tequilas and delivered drinks that hit the spot. The staff was pleasant and helpful, and the prices were fair. Stop by and enjoy! Situated on the top deck of the Boardwalk, you can relish your drink while watching the boat traffic coming in and out of the Marina and ferryboats going by on Lake Erie.

Great margaritas overlooking the harbor! We headed for a margarita at Ritas Cantina after a big put-in-bay breakfast and had a great time. The service was excellent, and the people were very nice. We tried two pitchers of different margaritas, and both were excellent. We did not eat there, and from what we saw, it looked like an average Americanized Mexican menu—a good selection of tequila. The sunset was spectacular that day for an extra bonus. We met some other tourists and had a nice time.

What a wonderful place to stop on a hot afternoon! The views are tremendous at Ritas Cantina, the service friendly and fast, and the Margaritas delicious. Take advantage of the Cocoanut Margaritas - refreshing and incredibly tasty!

Ritas Cantina on the upper deck has a view of the harbor and downtown docks, making it a perfect place to relax and have a margarita with a Grand Marnier side car enjoying the views of the Island! We were there during the day and it was one of many put-in-bay bars open.

Great Drinks!-We stopped here for a few drinks after visiting Kelly's Island. The Margaritas were really, really good & the Sex on the Beach drink was great! Be careful with the bumble bees, though. I asked the bartender to recommend us a great restaurant, and she stated that The Upper Deck waterfront restaurant put-in-bay had great food. She did not lie!
