Here's what our patrons say about Bistro 163...

“This bistro is a nonprofit restaurant staffed by friendly volunteers. If you think this means the quality isn’t top notch, you’d be wrong. I had the Cobb salad with homemade ranch dressing, which was very good. My sister had the quiche and said it was the best she’d ever had. We shared a bread pudding dessert that was quite yummy. The bistro is a refreshing alternative to bar food which is available at numerous other locations. If you’re visiting Port Clinton, you must give Bistro 163 a try.”

“I recently had brunch here on a Saturday. My sister and I both had the Spinach Mushroom Quiche. It was so good! The crust was homemade, and it had fresh ingredients! It came with a cup of soup, so I tried the sausage bean soup. That was homemade with bits of carrot, celery, white beans and a good amount of crumbled sausage, all seasoned perfectly!!! We had a slice of key lime pie that was the BEST I’ve ever had, including what I’ve had in Key West. This restaurant is a GEM in Port Clinton! Love this place.”
