No social distancing, filthy and rude bartender. Walked in and walked out. Perhaps they don't like visitors to their local watering hole. (fine with us . . . we spent our money elsewhere)

Best bar on the island in my opinion. Celebrated my 40th birthday here and had a great time. Love this bar.

Walked in, not busy, bartender rude for no reason. $4.25 for a can of miller lite. Not cool. Not sure why they didn’t want our business but we decided to fine somewhere else to eat dinner.

My husband and I ventured out to Joe's Bar on our rented golf cart. Well worth the trip. The drinks are excellent. Only regret wish the kitchen was still open.

Great little dive bar! The drinks were priced well and the bartender was so friendly. The restrooms were also the cleanest we had seen on the entire island. They have cornhole and a comfortable outside area to enjoy.

We had been by this place several times when visiting Put-In-Bay, but never stopped. We will never make this mistake again! This place was recommended by a local person, and it did not disappoint! Upon walking into the building, it was too crowded and difficult...to walk through to the back, because people were just not aware that we were trying go to the outside area. However, we now know that you do not even have to go through the building, because there is an open entrance to the back from the drive! Although the bar was very small and crowded, it took no time at all for the bartenders to wait on us and make our drinks quickly. I started with a Bloody Mary, and it was very tasty! In addition to the awesome drinks, this is a great people watching stop! There were so many interesting and fun people to watch and so many things happening, we really enjoyed our time here. We will definitely stop back when we return to the island!More

The staff if VERY friendly and engaging. Go with an appetite! I thought how big could a hot dog be... don't let them fool you! I couldn't get my mouth around it... everything they have is wonderfully made. They have outside seating and cornhole for...those who want.More

Stopped in for an adult beverage. Outdoor seating is huge, under tall trees for shade, small covered deck and plentiful seating inside. Only bummer....no drafts, all cans and bottles, but they did have a large variety of brews. We didn't eat, although we did see...many folks ordering food.More

Bar seemed like it needed some work, the outside though was set up nice for families and the overly large jenga game helped keep the kids busy.
