This place is set in a beautiful scene. You can look out onto Lake Geneva while dining or just having a drink. The food is good and served very quickly. They have a wonderful bloody mary bar. Sunday afternoon specials are a great value

Fish was delicious, service friendly, and sitting out on the deck in August was perfect on a Friday evening.

Our server was very good, but food quality and quantity are on the downswing. Their burgers seem under the stated half pound with a small tasteless flour dusted roll. The amount of fries was minimal. The nachos special had some sort of white cheese whizz that was tasteless and only in the center of the platter with a teaspoon of... More

Popular location to enjoy the sights of Lake Geneva Lake and normally we have a decent meal when we stop. Unfortunately today our meal was not good. My wife had tacos and I had the house burger which I understand is not ordering a New York stripe or lobster but the food we received was without flavor. We did enjoyed... More

Went with a group of friends and started out with a wonderful server. We shared a plate of delicious cheese curds. Had a great Bloody Mary with a beer chaser. The Bloody Mary had a meat stick, green olives, celery, cheese, shrimp, pepperocini, and pickle. Yum. I had a fantastic Chu Chos burger with bacon, onions and a fried egg.... More

We dined at Gordy's with a group of 15 ranging in age from 3 to 76. Though we did eat early on a Friday night, they were great in accommodating our group without a reservation. The fish fry was good, but the nachos were excellent. Great service and friendly atmosphere.
