We enjoy every meal we have here when we celebrate a special occasion. Enclosed patio seating provides a view of Portage Lake. Pricey...excellent food...excellent service. Call ahead for seating as space is limited and they are busy.

Who would ever suspect that there is an excellent fine dining experience in the middle of Onekama, MI? We were shocked to find this wonderful place. Donna does a terrific job with the food and service. Since we moved up here to retire, we get plenty of visitors and always take our out-of-town guests there.

We had been hearing for years about this place, but we live 25 miles away so we weren't so sure....We are SO sure now. Steaks melt in your mouth. The service is impeccable.

I always enjoy places with local character. My group each had different orders and all were extremely good. The waitress was "just right" in all areas. The seating is tight. My only complaint is that it is VERY noisy. Not a good place for an intimate dinner. At its cost it isn't special enough for a return visit.

We have been coming for years to this restaurant and it continues to be excellent in every way: food quality, wine selection, superior service, incredible desserts, etc in a charming lake cottage setting. Thank you, Donna, for all your hard work in making the Glenwood the best restaurant in the area!

Everyone's meal was prepared to perfection. The place was packed on a Monday night. Reservations in advance are a must for a large party.

We eat here 3 to 5 times a summer and the food and service are always perfect. They always work to make it right and a special night out.

This is a great place to go for special events and it is always a winner for entertaining guests. It is pricey but worth it. The service is wonderful.

So good! Great selection of dinner, drinks and desserts. If you want to eat at prime time, make sure you make reservations - recommend asking for a table on the porch. A smallish place that is constantly packed but it doesn't take away from the amazing food or service. The staff makes you feel welcome and appreciated. And the food... More

My first thoughts entering this restaurant was that we had stepped back in time to a bygone era. I was completely taken in by this restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed my time here. The service was outstanding, but my lamb chops were a little overcooked. It didn't matter, though.
