Put-In-Bay Restaurants

Tippers Steak House

Tippers Buffet

Put-in-Bay has many restaurants open during the summer catering to all of the visitors on the island. Tippers Steak House is well known for the quality of their beef and their incredible weekly specials. But in the winter months there has only been a couple restaurants open to serve the 150 or so island residents. Tippers Steak House is one of them. Or should we say, it was one of them.

Island on Ice

As you may or may not know, Put-in-Bay is on an island (South bass Island) and the lake (Lake Erie) ices over in the winter. So the only way to get off or on the island is by airplane after the ferry stops running. This locks in the island residents who enjoy a very quiet winter. Only a few community events such as school sports and town hall meetings provide social outlets, other than Tippers. read more
