We were up in Lake Geneva on a weekend bike trip. Despite the cold spring weather, we enjoyed a warm lunch at Gorty's. The view is spectacular and the service quite good!

Went there on a Friday night so caught the Fish Fry. It was wonderful. Had some great conversations with the locals and when we appeared to have questions the owner came up and helped us. Very friendly and welcoming place.

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 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.
