Features: This two story restaurant specializes in wood fired pizzas. They also offer salads, sandwiches and gluten free pizza crusts in addition to the lakeviews. This place always has a buzz and the location is right across from the downtown Lake Geneva public beach. Again, due to the great location, parking and wait times can be a challenge so I don’t recommend it during peak times for families with young kids, since they don’t take reservations. For those of you who don’t have to worry about young kids, go check it out!! There is always a crowd and I love the two story design. It reminds me of a rooftop bar in Chicago.
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: Since 2019 this small space has been known for their delicious pizza, beer, wine and craft cocktails (and even have a delicious califlour crust pizza!). While they only offer pizza, they do it well and the staff and atmosphere keep the locals and visitors coming back!
The outdoor patio is a great spot during the warmer months to have a drink and take in the beautiful sunset.
Features: This famous Chicago pizza chain also has a downtown Lake Geneva location. It is located close to two popular hotels, The Cove and Bella Vista Suites so it can get packed during the summer! It also has a nice lakeview you can enjoy while eating delicious pizza. Take advantage of the $9.99 week day lunch specials from 11-3pm and a happy hour M-F.
Chuck's Lakeshore Inn
Features: This casual bar/restaurant is a Fontana institution….everyone knows Chucks! It has great lakeviews, a bar that gets packed on nights and weekends and delicious food. From burgers to salads, blackened mahi mahi or even pizza’s there is something for everyone. I love their veggie burger!
