We were visiting Cloquet and took a friend's recommendation to go to Gordy's for burgers. We ended up going to the Hi-Hat for burgers, fries and shakes for dinner and then next door to Gordy's Coffee and Cream for a specialty shake (for the picky family member who had to have a coffee shake -- they don't do coffee at the Hi-Hat). The counter service was quick and friendly in both places, and we enjoyed sitting outdoors for our meals. The food was good -- we didn't leave a crumb! The kids absolutely loved it.

You know it's summer when -- Gordy's is open! Our first visit of the season was reliably good, except the homemade onion rings had run out by the time we arrived (oh well, a reason to go back!) I was happy to see the offering of Udi's Gluten Free rolls; a nice nod to the GF crowd. My only disappointment: the styrofoam boxes our burgers came in! Ew - landfill forever for five minutes' ride in a car. Come on, Gordy's - let's go back to sustainable roots for those yum burgers!!

Same old same old. Nothing special. The shakes are good but otherwise overpriced. They may have been on diners drive ins dives but you could see the host was disappointed.

My kids look forward to Gordy's opening up every year. It's means good burgers, better weather and a fun place to meet up with friends. The burgers are good, my kids rave about the french fries and the fish sandwiches are gigantic! It is a bit expensive unless you are having one of their daily specials. It's a treat our family enjoys.

The food has gotten worse and worse over the years. Somehow they got this great reputation with a lot of good advertising and some friends who promoted. It's not that great - overpriced, average or less food, noisy, just not a very good place to go. I stopped going there several years ago
