Great lakefront location in Fontana on Lake Geneva. Sat on the deck on a beautiful fall day and our golden, Frazier made fast friends with all who stopped by to pet him. The fish sandwiches were delicious!

The grilled chicken club on pretzel bun was delicious. The batter cod sandwich was satisfying. The prices reasonable and quick service. Casual with a nice view of Lake Geneva. Outside seating available.

Two girlfriends and I walked around Lake Geneva for a special birthday and ended up at Chucks about 5pm on a Saturday in October. Bartenders were attentive and nice as we unwound. Seems that Chucks still caters to the Illinois crowd and this just happened to be the night of the Cubs playoff game that sent them to the World... More

lovely location down by the lake with a lovely atmosphere (including a remembrance wall for pets!), slightly above average pub food but a great place to hang out.

We spent a perfect September afternoon on Chuck's patio, specifically because we wanted to dine outside. It has a great view of the lake and it was quiet and peaceful. There was no wait staff, so we ordered from the bar, no problem. However, the food left much to be desired. I had the fried fish; hubby had the shrimp... More

Juicy, good quality burgers smothered in grilled onions if you like. Great onion rings & frys. Seating outside is self serve, order at the bar and they bring it to.
