Great Spot for a Drink and Lunch

Great bar with small town atmosphere. Great bloody marys and mushroom cheesburgers. The staff was very friendly, prices were reasonable.

Walk the lake path and then make a stop in Fontana for a cheese burger and/or cheese curds. Add to this a Spotted Cow and you are living the good life Wisconsin has to offer. This is the place for people of all ages.

You can't go wrong with a burger & cheese curds, the best I've had in the state of Wisconsin. Everything was perfect from the ice cold beer to the wesome staff, so friendly & attentive. We went for a burger & stayed 2 extra hours for the fun, some singing and dancing was going on that night.

This tavern is known around the world ! You might enjoy Chucks for a Blackhawk's game in the winter with an interesting mix of locals and Chicagoans .

Chuck's has changed little over the years and that is not a bad thing. The food menu is limited and the ambiance is not on a level for couples or families as Gordy's but it it is the best spot to grab a beer in town.

Bar food, but great burgers and chicken sandwiches! Eat at the bar or at tables, and you can sit outside casually, weather permitting. Great people watching spot, gets loud and fun and views of the lake and boating is amazing. Sometimes you don't want to leave...

Great place for a drink, have lunch and hang with friends on Geneva Lake! A family place during the day and a hopping place at night.

Great bar for meeting new friends and old friends. If staying at The Abbey it is a quick walk or a free shuttle ride away. Typical bar food...burgers and sandwiches. good looking young bartenders!
