Do you sell your lobster bisque anywhere off of Put-in-Bay?

We do sell quarts of our frozen Lobster Bisque to take home with you from The Boardwalk’s Main Deck on Put-in-Bay. See you at the Cleveland Boat Show and The Catawba Island Boat Show where you can enjoy our Lobster Bisque off the island. But, as of now, we do not sell our Lobster Bisque anywhere on the mainland. .

Do you ship your lobster bisque?

Unfortunately, we do not ship our Lobster Bisque. We only sell frozen quarts from May to October onsite at The Boardwalk. It is our fresh, homemade Lobster Bisque that we make and freeze onsite in the summer months. We  unfortunately don’t have the capability currently to make it and ship it in the winter months while we are closed. We hope you will come see us this summer!

Do you have gluten free options?

The Upper Deck offers a wide array of Gluten Free Items: Breads, Buns, Salad Dressings, Entrees and Side Dishes. Guests are welcomed to ask their server for our dedicated Gluten Free Menu. The Boardwalk Main Deck Does Not Offer Gluten Free Options at this time.

*Disclaimer* While we are happy and able to accommodate Gluten Free Diets, by using Gluten Free Products, and Sanitizing work and cooking surfaces, we still can not guarantee that we are 100% Gluten Free Kitchen.  The High Volume nature of our kitchen and also with the amount of other Gluten Containing items throughout our kitchen, we can’t not say there is not a small chance of cross-contamination. Please let your server or bartender know about Gluten sensitivity and we will make sure to properly communicate that to our kitchen staff.
