The fact that so many locals were dining at Gordy's was our first clue that the food there was good. Indeed, we enjoyed drinks and barbecued ribs in a pleasant atmosphere and will return next time we're in the area.

My granddaughter had the chicken fingers off the kids menu, they were ok. The fried... More

This past weekend I was in town from Virginia to visit a friend in Lake Geneva (my favorite vacation spot). We both have heard of this establishment and decided to check it out to start our weekend off. When I ordered a drink, there happened to be a dead fly in it (gross!!). Thank goodness I realized before drinking from... More

My review is limited to a bar visit, not a food visit. This is the kind of place where visiting Chicago guys and their "Cubs girl" wives hang out after speeding around Geneva Lake in their mini-yacht. So that summarizes it.

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
