The Fish Bowl

The Fish Bowl on Put-in-Bay is a favored hangout among visitors.  The building was extensively renovated, providing guests with a comfortable and cozy environment.  Moreover, the expanded deck on South side of the building affords wondrous views of downtown Put-in-Bay.

Mossbacks is directly next to the Fishbowl.  The Valentine Doller building is home to both of these establishments.  Valentine Doller is a past resident of Put-in-Bay who came to the island in the mid 1800’s.  Moreover, during his time on the island he held many positions.  Surprisingly, he was the first postmaster, the clerk of courts, a founding trustee of the Village and even the mayor. This structure that bears his name is situated on Catawba Avenue.  Also, the beautiful DeRivera Park is across the street.  Additionally, the Jet Express ferry terminal is just a short walk away.
