I've had many meals at Walleyes this year and each has been excellent. The food quality has always been top notch. Fresh, crisp lettuce and other greens on the salads, fresh fruits and high quality meat on the breakfast bar, and excellent sausage gravy and biscuits. The burgers are made to order and are excellent. The service has alw... read more

Dinner was good, but the Sunday buffet...
Was horrible. The buffet has cold scrambled egg, not quite cooked bacon, cold sausage gravy, bagels and fruit and yogurt. If you must just get the bagel and yogurt or go somewhere else. Our dinner two nights before was average. The best was the fried perch dinner.

Nice place to eat and rest on the island.
Food and service average. Cute gift shop with something for everyone. Good prices in the gift shop. There is a beautiful wading pool outside. It is large and has a number of water features like fountains and waterfalls. You can rent golf carts and bicycles right at the restaurant. This is one of the few places to go on this quiet isl... read more

We came here for brunch buffet on a Saturday morning. Air conditioning and clean bathrooms make a huge impression when it comes down to it. The food was eh, but it was hot and fresh. The staff was able, and the facilities were clean. I would definitely come back. ... read more

The food was great (try the walleye bites!), and the service was good. It has a nice atmosphere and drink selection. I've seen it referred to as a brewery, but it is not that. It does have some local brews, however.

Relaxation At It's Best
This place was worth all the public boat fares to get to. My wife and I were enticed to visit from purchasing a Groupon, and are very happy. No hustle nor bustle on Middle Bass Island, but believe 2017 will not be nearly as sparsely populated. Ohio's newest state park is located here with a multi-million dollar investment in rebuildi... read more

Great meal and atmosphere
We stopped in for dinner after touring the island with a realtor. Had a great meal, and met some awesome people. We'll be residents soon, and this will certainly be our hangout. Just like our neighborhood place back home.

One of the few places on the island to hang out. Good music and average food. Good bar to hang out at.

Just OK
Seems like a nice place, the patio / pool area is really nice. The bar area was a little dark, and just didn't give off a "clean" vide. I put the food a just average, seems like they like to fry a lot of the items on their menu. Overall, ok if you are looking to get a drink and a snack. The crowd definitely changes as the day goes o... read more

Usually pretty good but just average this time. Several issues... Half the menu was x'd out of things not available. Pool was allowing dogs to swim in the pool in water that was clearly not chlorinated as they were filling through a hose using stinky well water all day. The dogs would not have been an issue of the water was treated. ... read more

Laid-back, just like the island!
Good food, friendly most helpful waitress! Nice lagoon pool with plenty of umbrella-ed tables & chairs! Laid back atmosphere! Liked what I saw in the gift shop! Pretty, large metal flowers on sound absorption panels ~ and they're for sale!

Quiet lunch!
If you are looking for a more laid back atmosphere and less crowded than Put in Bay I recommend going to JF Walleyes on Middle Bass Island. Good burgers (I had the bacon bourbon burger) and a nice variety on the menu.

Awesome Pizza!
We ordered a pizza and it was so good! It had a lot of cheese and it was oven fired! I would suggest getting that if you go! There was a live reggae band the night we went. The only problem is that it gets insanely crowded and with all of the people drinking it makes it difficult to walk through the crowd without issues. I would go e... read more

Great entertainment and service. Food is ok.
Had a Saturday night dinner with my son. Service by Haley was great. She was very helpful and nice. Entertainment for the night was a very good reggae band. The restaurant was clean and inviting. My only negative was price of food and drink. 3 small tap beers for $15 dollars. My total bill was $70 (tip included) for two people and we... read more

Good Bar Food, Indifferent Service
Visiting Middle Bass Island along with 18 other boating couples. Had dinner both nights at Walleye's. Food selection is typical for a bar, with some interesting local selections. The pizza had sparse toppings - the other food served was generally not inspiring. Service was very friendly, but hit or miss. First night, had to prompt fo... read more

Looks like a fun place. People were nice. Need to go on a weekend. Our weekday visit was sort of weird...no one around.

Breakfast Buffet
Despite some of the negative reviews my friends and I decided to have breakfast here. I am happy that we did because it turned out to be a good experience. The buffet is only nine dollars and has all the breakfast essentials you need. Of course is not a fancy five-star restaurant but you shouldn't expect that when you're only paying ... read more

Island Fare
You are a tourist on an island so expect to pay more. There is a nice area with a pool in the back to lounge as you enjoy getting away from the real world. I enjoy the specials they offer but will always enjoy an order of wings. It is full of locals as it is only one of three places to order food on the island. It is a quiet island u... read more

We sail to MBI about once a year and of course we go to JF Walleyes. Reason being, there really isn't anywhere else to go. That being said, it isn't bad, our server was very attentive.

Spent the weekend on Middle Bass Island for the first time and loved the food and entertainment at J.F Walleye's. The breakfast bar was by far the best I've had in a long time!! This place was very clean and all the staff were very friendly. Can't wait to go back!!

This place is so much fun. Great service. Great ambiance. Jake was our bartender and went above and beyond to accommodate our friend who dropped their credit card in the cracks of the bar.

Cute place, but not the best food or drink
Thought we would visit Middle Bass for something different to do. Not much to do, but thought we'd check out JF Walleyes. It was Memorial Day. They were out of almost everything on the menu, which was small anyway (out of Chicken wings, out of flatbread, out of pizza, out of french fries) pretty much the only thing left was hamburger... read more

AWESOME food, FUN atmosphere, Great time!!
You have got to try the Goat cheese, fig and arugula flatbread....AMAZING ate two of these while I was there! The perch is wonderful and last time we were there we had the "Big Kahuna" and had to split it...too big for one person!

What can I say, it's a great island getaway!
Visit for an hour, or an afternoon! Really awesome time! Food is very good, try the flat breads! The rental units they offer are very nice too. Breakfast buffet on the weekends was really appreciated.

Don't visit MBI without trying the Tater Tots at Walleyes
Fantastic food, quick service, very relaxing atmosphere. You have to order the Tater Tots appetizer while visiting Middle Bass. You cannot believe those little school lunch staples could be so darn good.
