Reviewed 18 July 2014

Nice porch overlooking water/marina. Great Bloody Marys! Fun ambiance and great prices! Walked over from beach for drink and lunch. Wish we had rented paddle boards!

“family getaway at Lake Geneva”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

Our daughter, my wife and our 2 grand daughters had dinner there in early July. Pleasant atmosphere, family friendly, and a good reasonably priced menu. Nothing out of the ordinary and the prices were in line for a resort area. Would come back here over other restaurants we were taken to in the Lake Geneva area.

“Perfect day for Boating”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

July the forth, we rented a 20 footer $129/hour. It was a blast as we started at 9:30AM, the sun was out but not hot yet. The cool breeze greeted us, while we cruised the lake for over an hour. The scenic view and the power boat made it worthwhile for a morning one hour drive to Gordy's.

They have these young kids who were full of energy to help you in and out of the boat.

Overall a great experience, we can go back again.
