Very full and varied menu. The absolute best Tortilla soup I've ever had. Full bar. They're also a boat dealer (Cobalt and Mastercraft), with a small marina right in front of the restaurant. They have outdoor tables as well, and grass and table games to enjoy. I highly recommend the place.

Easy access from the lake to restaurant. There were two polite, friendly young men who helped maneuver the boat to the dock. Food at Gordy's is very good. The chicken torilla soup is fantastic!! Meals are good portions. A plus: they serve Coke!! Very nice view of lake while dining. Highly recommend Gordy's. Oh, you can even order a boat.

Love sitting out by the water, enjoying a meal, and tossing down a drink. The staff is very friendly, the food is delicious, and you can not beat the view. I especially like watching the boats being removed from the lake - it's a peaceful east coast type setting. The bar and restaurant inside is clean, bright, and welcoming. Make... More

The menu has a wide variety of American favorites and a large selection of drinks. My husband enjoyed the fish and chips (fried perch) and I had a great hamburger that was flavorful and juicy. The views of Lake Geneva were very pretty and the menu prices were very reasonable, unlike some in the area that are overpriced.

Great atmosphere and lively bar!! The bartenders were really accommodating and fun. We ordered a drink not on a menu, and the bartender made it up perfectly! Great porch out front to have drinks on! I would definitely go back!

Since Pier 290 in Williams Bay has opened, it's much easier to get into Gordy's-which has better food and is more reasonably priced, anyway. Go for lunch or dinner and sit up near the windows or by the bar. The further back you sit, the darker and noisier it gets. Everything is good here - sandwiches, fish tacos, cheese curds,... More

The Caprese Salad was very artfully presented and delicious as well. I enjoyed the Starboard Southwest Salad and my spouse loved the Mediterranean Salmon Sandwich on foccaccia bread. There were many families there, and some of the kids were loud, so not necessarily a great spot for a romantic dinner. Food was reasonably priced, but there is no free parking... More

We are staying at the Abbey. This was close walk. Even though it was a wait for our table, it was enjoyable. We walked to stand across street for a couple cocktails, walked the piers, checked out the boats. After seated, A couple sips out of our drinks and the food came. Quick! And it was very good.

Good food.....but took awhile to get adult food items. Kids food was ready and sitting in window so we had them bring it out right away. Tenderloin sliders were very good.

Was here on June 21 and we enjoyed the evening drinking some beers and had one of the best burgers in a long time. Very casual yet comfortable setting RIGHT on the water.
