Seriously, you need this chicken in your life. You can taste the wine glaze and the meat just falls off the bones. My favorite thing to eat when we are on the island, hands down. Love that they're open late so it's usually our stop late at night when we need a break from the bar scene and a snack.

Chicken is sooo friggin good! Ask for extra sauce for 50 cents. Comes with lil potato salad and ear of corn. Not fancy, but totally awesome! Bar right next to its patio for your sipping needs.

The red wine sauce was pretty good, the chicken not so much. It could have been the time of day that we went but I am not sure it would be someplace I would visit again. It is worth trying at least once.

Stopped here with the family & it was a great value for the chicken meal. A bar is outside as well for drinks & it's connected to the Round Bar.

We ate at the Chicken Patio for the first time and were not disappointed. The chicken is basted in wine and it was moist and delicious. And what a deal! 1/2 of a chicken, an ear of corn, potato salad, and a roll with butter all for $12.00! I will be going back there.

We had lunch at The Chicken Patio recently. The meat was flavorful and moist. The meal came with an ear of corn, small container of potato salad and roll. Drinks are extra and were available at another booth on the grounds. This is the only meal offered. There are outside tables for dining. Meals are $12 each.

A local favorite! Chicken Patio is Put in Bay's only outdoor Chicken BBQ Patio, located adjacent to the Historic Park Hotel and world famous Round House Bar. Serving island wine basted BBQ chicken meals all day during our summer season. BBQ'd over a 26 foot charcoal grill, our chicken dinners are delicious. A dinner consists of 1/2 half BBQ chicken, corn on the cobb, potato salad & dinner roll. we are family friendly, dog friendly and seating is located on our outdoor patio facing the Put-in-Bay harbor. A great view! We offer child's meal and a la carte.
