Flat Iron Tap
Features: While the space may be small the portions are large! In addition to having over 100 beers on tap this place has a huge variety of amazing burgers with tasty shoestring potatoes and is located in downtown Lake Geneva. My family always chooses this place or Chucks when we want a burger.
Next Door Pub
Features: This casual restaurant is a local favorite that has been honored with several awards including best casual bar, best chicken wings (my son agrees!), best pizza and best burger. The restaurant is located a five minute drive from downtown Lake Geneva and you will see everyone here from couples, families, larger groups and single people at the bar. In addition to being known for its delicious pizzas it has one of the most extensive gluten free menus around! They offer salads, pastas, pizza, pub burgers, flatbreads, appetizers and other options ALL gluten free. They also have cool “Pizza of the Month” specials if you are looking to try something unique like a cheesesteak pizza. This is my family’s go to spot for pizza and burgers!
Features:This local institution is located in downtown Williams Bay right across from the lake. It is known for it’s pizza, burgers, bar food and local following. It’s a perfect spot to grab some food and drinks after walking a portion of the Lake Shore Path or spending some time at Williams day beach. They are open 7 days a week for lunch/dinner and have live music Thursday from 8-11pm.
Features: Mars Resort is located RIGHT on the shore of Lake Como (the 2nd smaller lake located in the town of Lake Geneva). This retro Wisconsin supper club has live piano music, an outdoor bar on the beach (complete with adirondack chairs) and offers short pontoon boat tours from their own dock. This place in the summer can’t be beat. Sitting on the beach with a cocktail in hand and listening to music outside is the best. Fair warning no reservations are accepted so the inside dining area fills up quickly. Their standard hamburgers and cheeseburgers never disappoint!
Magpie's Den & Pen
Features: Recently renovated bar with huge outdoor patio, fire pits and outdoor games. They are known for their fried pickles and Sunday Funday bottomless mimosas! Check out their smash burger, brat burger or portabella burger.
Features: Local institution located in Fontana Wi. This casual bar has great lakeviews and gets packed! Everyone knows Chucks! While locals keep coming back for their 1/3lb burger, I also highly recommend their vegetarian burger.
