This was my first trip to Put In Bay. When I hear 'boardwalk', I think of a long strip with shops and restaurants. That is not what this was. Due to the time of the year, most of the boardwalk was closed. It appeard it...may have been a restaurant and a few shops. We grabbed lunch at the bar as it was open. It was a bit pricy, but that was to be expected for the area.More

Every year when we visit Put in Bay, we always start our Saturday at the Boardwalk with some Lobster Bisque! They never disappoint. Menu looked a lot smaller than in the past, not sure if due to COVID. We’ll see ya next year.

The Boardwalk has restaurants and shops that are worth your time. The service is very good to excellent and you will probably walk away with a favorite experience or food item just from visiting!

We are dinner here our last night at Put in Bay. We had the lobster bisque, lobster roll, lobster Mac and cheese. They were all amazing. Definitely recommend.

My primary reason for choosing the Upper Deck restaurant was the view. We went back because of the excellent service and delicious food.

We did not get to experience the full liveliness of this area. All of the restaurants and shops were closed except for one bar. Bummer deal. Looked really nice.

We ate here. Had a table outside on the deck with a nice view of the harbor. My husband has a mahi mahi sandwich and I had the lobster roll. Both were very good.

It has some weird rules that don't make any sense. It isn't a regular boardwalk. It's ok. Nice view of the lake and islands.

The Boardwalk Docks & Marina has long been known for their honoring evening colors, including playing the National Anthem, each evening during the summer. This evening, they utterly failed to do so - they took down the National Flag about an hour too early and...neglected to render the honors they used to render. VERY DISAPPOINTED! Instead, they merely played what sounded like a version of America the Beautiful twenty minutes after sunset.More
