Gordy's has the best food in Cloquet. The fish is amazing,you will not be disappointed. The only thing I can complain about is they are not open year around. They have been on the food network Diner's, Drive inn's and Dive's. Gordy's is our first stop on our way to Duluth.

When we travel, we love to seek out local burger joints. We are from Oklahoma, land of cattle and top quality beef, so we love us a good burger. We were traveling back home from Duluth, and I found this place online, and when I read that it was a DDD diner, we had to go. The burger was pretty... More

We have made it a tradition to stop at Gordy's on our annual trip to northern Minnesota for the greatest burger around. You never fail to see a packed establishment. They give you a quick meal with great flavor. I wouldn't dream of stopping anywhere else. Unfortunately...they are not open year round. The staff is so friendly and I think... More

My boyfriend and I went to Duluth and stopped here because I saw it on the TV show "Diners, Drive Inns, and Dives".... And it is even better in person!!! It is so old school and the owner, Gordy, was even behind the corner taking orders. It is so cool! He even owns a coffee shop right next door. It's... More

While camping in the area, we happened to drive past Gordy's Hi Hat when my husband noticed the "fish and chips" special on their sign, so we made a u-turn and stopped for dinner. You place your order at the counter, then pay when it's ready. It's a small place, so we were glad to find a table. Many people... More

Been coming here for nearly 50 years and it is a good place to stop on your trip north. Good food, quick service and friendly staff await you. Of course the prices have gone up since my first one cost 10 cents. LOL..........This is a classic malt and burger joint. Enjoy!

After seeing on Triple D we knew we had to go. True to form, the food was good. We had bacon burgers. I got all the toppings. The onions were a little much. Onion rings were really good as were the cheese curds. I also had raspberry malt which was very tasty. I'd go back!

We went on a Thursday afternoon at about 3PM and there was a line. This place is always busy. The service is very fast and the food is served in a visually appealing way, it's as if they are ready to take a commercial. More often than not it seems you get food that doesn't look anything like the picture... More

The food is fantastic and the prices are so reasonable. They have great burgers and shakes along with other tasty items on the menu. The service is good and the restaurant has an old fashioned drive in feel to it .

Quick service, big portions of fries and onion rings, lots of outside seating. Next time up that way I need to try the chili I heard so much about. My only suggestion is more restrooms!
