We are a seasonal summer restaurant on a small, resort island in Lake Erie, Ohio, USA. Very high volume with lots of opportunities to interact with other staff members and customers. The island is full of fun activities, swimming, kayaking, boating. There are fun historical sites. The best part is its small enough to walk or ride your bike ANYWHERE on the island. We have a very fun work environment and typically bring in a few J1 VISA students each year. Many other businesses up here also sponsor or hire J1VISA students and other USA college students, so their is plenty of opportunity to meet other people. We are so happy to learn about this opportunity with workaway!
Workawayers will benefit from interacting with people from all over the world working together on the island. Everyone works together through the summer to host tourists and visitors from all over the world, as well. You will walk away with a better understanding of other cultures, including our small island community's. We also believe you will walk away with more of a knowledge of how to work together with people from all walks of life. The owners speak German and we have an authentic Austrian biergarten on our grounds. You can learn about the War of 1812 and the history of Lake Erie's International Peace Memorial, Perry's Monument. There are many caves to explore on the island and we host the world's largest geode. You learn about the small fishing community of the island and can even fish and bring it in to cook at work. Each day after work, we all gather together for drinks and sometimes games. Every Friday night we have a staff pizza party after we close the restaurant. There are three other islands to go visit that are easy to get to from our island. We can offer more training in the kitchen, gardening skills, and general hospitality basics. We always welcome the workawayers to join us out in town or on a boatride, swimming in the lake, or going out for drinks. We are a family at the Goat and everyone is welcome to join us. The housing can be a lot of fun too living with 2-3 other employees. You can learn about where they came from, what they are studying, and become friends. We hope to learn about where the workawayer comes from, how their day to day life is spent, what a business like ours does where they are from, and any ideas they have for us to utilize.

Put-in-Bay is very close to Cedar Point, a fantastic amusement park. There are also shopping malls close enough for a day trip. There are plenty of light houses and parks nearby to explore. We are surrounded by other islands that are fun to visit. Cleveland Airport or Detroit airport are the best ones to reach us from. Then a bus may have to be taken. We can possibly help with airport pick-up, but its always best to explore your own route.
