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.

The bloody marys are to die for. Any time of day, you will find great food here. And the view is absolutely beautiful.

A portal to the 1980s except you will spend more here at one sitting than you did in the entire Summer of '81 which isnt bad because the paneling and chairs and bar look the same and you can drink while worrying about when your parking will expire at Fontana's revenue generation service called the lakeside parking.

We come to lake Genava at Fontana about once a year and Chucks is always an enjoyable stop on each visit. The food is good, staff is friendly and you are just steps away from the lake. This visit was with a party of 4. We were all pleased with our entree selections and we will be back on our... More
