Joe’s Bar Particulars
Tucked away from downtown, this gastropub is located at the end of Catawba Avenue, right next to South Bass Island State Park. Joe’s is a nice escape from the craziness of downtown, located in a peaceful wooded area. There is ample golf cart parking as well as one of the few places on the island you will find car parking!
Order their “famous” Sloppy Joe or the Asiago Artichoke Dip and relax outside on one of their many picnic tables surrounded by fun yard games. Challenge your friends to a game of oversized Jenga or Corn Hole. Before you know it, you’ll have spent your entire day at Joe’s Bar and Resturant.
