We also order Bloody Mary and they were tasty in... More

We stopped in after a day at Fontana Beach and were very pleased! Food was great. We had Salmon wraps, pulled pork sliders, and burgers. Everything was delicious! The waitress was very attentive and handled our large party of 7 with no problems. Fun atmosphere, great views, and nice location. We will definitely go back next time we are in... More

Have stopped here several times and been very pleased every time. They have a fairly comprehensive beer menu and The food is bar food, have no illusions, but it's very good above average bar food. Servers are friendly and efficient and have good suggestions if you're just not quite sure what to choose. I believe there is a somewhat more... More

This was the worst eating experience I have had in years. It was a busy Sunday in Lake Geneva and we did have a large party of eight, but everything was bad. We sat for 20 min. with only water before our waitress came to the table and we had a round of drinks including 4 Bloody Mary's which were... More

We stopped here over the 4th of July Weekend. The food was OK, a little greasy and the service was a bit slow. The menu was OK. It gets loud so you have to be OK with that too. It is convenient if you are in the area or staying at the Abbey resort near by.

Had dinner, we were lucky and had a window seat which was nice. I had Fillet Mignon Sliders-they were very tender and delicious. My husband had fish and chips which we enjoyed-his only complaint was that the fries were too thin for "Fish and Chips", but we enjoyed very much. We also had chicken tortilla soup which was one of... More

I'm usually cautious of a restaurant that offers too many selections, but Gordy's may be the exception. My wife was hungry for a grilled cheese - excellent! And I dined on the Ship Wreck. Can't go wrong with 1/2 price wine on Thursday night as well as an ample selection of tap & bottled beer.
