The Fish Bowl
The Fish Bowl Particulars
The Fish Bowl is located next door to Mosssbacks Restaurant, right on Catawba Avenue. The building has served many purposes over the years, including the village hardware store. Historically it is known as the Valentine Doller building. The Victorian structure has the words V. Doller carved on the front. Valentine Doller was a Put-in-Bay luminary serving as both its first postmaster and eventually the mayor!
Across the street, DeRivera Park and its well-manicured greenery is a great place to relax. This lovely park is a tribute to the islands founding father, Jose DeRivera, and the green heart of downtown Put-in-Bay. The Jet Express Terminal and The Keys Restaurant Complex are just a short walk away.
