Expertly-crafted cocktails and dessert cannolis round out the supper club’s enticing menu.
When residents of Lauderdale Lake are eager to explore new cuisine, they often head to Mukwanago's Fork in the Road Restaurant
to linger over excellent craft beers or indulge in a fantastic meal enhanced with inventive flavors. Here, legendary Wisconsin cheese curds get a modern spin with a vodka batter and cilantro-lime ranch, and cedar plank grilled salmon is served with an apricot serrano glaze. Should you have room, order a slice of their airy carrot cake crowned with cream cheese frosting and sugared walnuts. It’s nothing short of memorable.
Sunny summer days are frequently relished at Gordy’s Boat House
in nearby Fontana-on-Geneva Lake, a boating enclave roughly half an hour away from Lauderdale Lake. An outdoor patio lures patrons to the waterfront, where they can dine on fresh seafood ranging from coconut shrimp to Fontana fish and chips.
