Lobster Bisque Cam

A live view from The Boardwalk!

Two words: LOBSTER BISQUE. There are a bunch of restaurant options to take to the seating area, both indoor and outdoor (and even an upper deck). Completely worth it for the view of the bay. Watch the water taxis come in, the jet depart to pick up more visitors on the mainland, the monument in the background. Really excellent use of this space.

One of my favorites on the island. You really can't get better perch than here and the lobster bisque is the real deal. I am always shocked at how much lobster is in it. I also like the vibe here. Great cocktails.

Yummy yummy yummy! We came here with a big party and they accommodated us with no problem! About 20 people! Ashton was our server and he did an INCREDIBLE job!!! We all had a great time, and would go back if we ever went to Put-In Bay! I love how it overlooks the water and all the boats etc! Very cool bars inside and outside as well!

Such a beautiful place to get a quick bite, delicious seafood, lunch or a nice dinner. Something for everyone! And the hype about the bisque is TRUE! My first time having it and it had loads of lobster chunks in it. Thick and hearty like a stew. Fabulous! Can't wait to return.
