Description: Mr. Ed's is definitely the place to be for lunch, dinner or late night on the island. The happy hour prices are unbeatable ? some of the best on Putinbay ? as are the bands (always crowd pleasers) and the rooftop bar upstairs (the view of downtown Put in Bay is amazing). The sports bar feel of the afternoon, where you can eat wings and watch the game on one of 15 plasma TVs, segues into an all-night indoor and outdoor party after dark.
