Topic: Bistro 163 Day

On June 6, 2016, with one full time employee and a group of very dedicated volunteers, Port Clinton was introduced to a new concept in restaurant management with the opening of Bistro 163.  Located at 1848 E. Perry Street, their mission to increase food security in Ottawa County was simple yet bold.

To date this 501(c)3 organization has accomplished their mission more than 55,000 times by providing a quality meal to anyone no matter their ability to pay.  Additionally, the 25,000+ volunteer hours generated at Bistro 163 have provided an outlet to those in our community looking to give back.

Bistro 163 Board Member Olen Martin looks at the positive impact Bistro 163 has had on the community this way; “… the comfortable environment, high quality product and unique dining concept offered at Bistro 163 is a shining light to creativity, culinary excellence and desire to make Port Clinton a better place to live, work and play.  I’m proud of my seat on this Board and I believe I can speak for the other Board Members in hoping we can continue enhancing food safety in this region.”

In a Proclamation signed by Mayor Mike Snider, June 6, 2019 shall forever be known in the City of Port Clinton as Bistro 163 Day.  Mayor Snider highlighted the many accomplishments made by this dining establishment as they celebrated their third anniversary.  This Proclamation will be read aloud at the June 11th City Council Meeting and officially presented to the Bistro 163 Board of Directors at their next meeting on June 17th.
