“Beautiful restaurant on the lake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

Can get very busy so be prepared to wait on the weekends. Atmosphere is very nice keeping with the lake theme. Has a very nice upstairs with a view of the lake. Service was average & food was good. Beware that parking comes at a premium down here so keep your eye out for a spot.

Good selection of burgers and sandwiches, with view of the lake. A review DOES NOT have to be 50 characters to say something.

“Great food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

A group of four of us had lunch at Gordy's. We stumbled upon it as we drove around Lake Geneva checking out the sights. It was a bustling and energetic atmosphere across the street from a marina in Fontana. Great atmosphere with nautical decor, it really fit the flavor of the small lake town. I ordered the fish tacos and really enjoyed them. We also ordered onions rings for an appetizer. They were good too. The prices were reasonable and everyone at our table enjoyed their meals. My dad got a hamburger which was a very generous size. Would definitely recommend Gordy's!

“LOVE Gordy's....but go EARLY!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Gordy's has a great location right off of Geneva Lake! The food is great, bar has good atmosphere.....on the weekends GO EARLY, otherwise you'll wait! If it's nice outside, you can always hang out by the lake.

“Too crowded for a Friday nite fish fry”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

I've been to Gordy's many times and enjoy the atmosphere and food but its gotten too crowded and busy on Friday nights in the summer for their fish fry and until they decide to be more patron friendly and do either call-ahead or reservations, let everyone else wait an hour and a half, I consider that poor service. It isn't good enough for that wait when there are other good places around the lakes area.
