Voted the best BBQ in Put-in-Bay, Chicken Patio has been a Put-in-Bay institution since 1953. Back then, Chicken Patio cooked each meal of signature chicken in-house made wine sauce on a small grill. Today, an expanded menu and a 21-foot charcoal grill help serve Put-in-Bay islanders, boaters, and visitors alike.

Chicken Patio History and Location

Chicken Patio can be found on the patio of the Park Hotel, adjacent to the World Famous Round House Bar. Chicken Patio is proud to be a part of Put-in-Bay’s fascinating history. Interestingly, there was no electricity at the original Roundhouse Bar. Blocks of ice cut from the harbor were used throughout the tourist season. The ice was stored at the IceHouse which is now the Put-in-Bay Winery.
Today, you’ll find plenty of ice cold beverages available. You’ll also find exceptional live entertainment at the nearby Roundhouse. Most notably, one-man comedy and music act Mike “Mad Dog” Adams. Mad Dog has played at the Roundhouse stage for over 35 years - don’t miss your chance to catch a show along with a great, filling meal from Chicken Patio. Visit their entertainment page for additional details.
