There’s no shortage of lakes in Walworth County, but sometimes it’s hard finding a spot to enjoy the lake if you don’t want to actually be out on it. That’s where these five places come in!
Gordy’s Boat House in Fontana has a large menu, a full bar, and several outdoor seating options. Their location – right down on the water in Fontana – puts you right in the action on beautiful Geneva Lake too! You’ll get to watch boats on the piers, people heading to the beach, and maybe you’ll catch a Lake Geneva Cruise Line boat stopping by to pick up passengers or going past on a tour.
For a quieter spot that still has an amazing lake view, head to the Lauderdale Landing on Lauderdale Lakes in Elkhorn. They have a great grill menu with pizzas, a Friday Fish Fry, and tasty entrees. Plus, you can’t beat their outdoor dining options with a patio, outdoor bar, and picnic tables all with a view of the lake.
There are several great waterfront options on Delavan Lake, but one that might not be as well-known is Inn Between Bar and Grill. Just like its name implies…it’s hidden in between a bunch of small lake homes on the lakes north side, but when you do find it the view, drinks, and atmosphere are worth it.
Want to grab a drink with the locals? Head to DJ’s In The Drink on Lake Como. We’re betting you might not have heard of Lake Como yet so here are some things to know – it’s the smaller neighbor just on the other side of Highway 50 from Geneva Lake. It’s full of locals, and DJ’s is a must-stop when you’re down there. Go for the view and the atmosphere, stay for the drinks and good food!
If you’re in the East Troy area, Lulabell’s Dockside on Lake Beulah is the place to stop. They have a full menu, but you might not have room for any of their great food if you started with the Bloody Mary – it comes with a bunch of toppings and a beer chase like any good Wisconsin Bloody Mary should!
