I love location but the new policy of not transferringthe bar bill to the dinner bill is rude inconsiderate customer service. Shame on you Glidden...no quality restaurant that cares about the customer has such a cheap dinner policy.

We had a party of 8 with reservations, thank goodness. This place is so popular!!!! We were welcomed graciously and seated right on time. Each of us had a delicious meal. The staff was courteous and attentive to our needs. The atmosphere is rustic and welcoming. GO!!!

One of the best views in Door County dining. Old school supper club with self service salad bar. Tim is a throwback of a bartender with great conversations and drinks. Intimate dining and family friendly.

The food - spectacular. Worth every dollar and every bit. The service - outstanding. We live in the Twin Cities and rarely find service this spot-on. The view - AMAZING. I grew up in the pacific and the water views (minus the snow) reminded me of home. Go early before the crowds and get a reservation. We arrived ~4:15pm and... More

My family and I went to the Glidden Lodge restaurant to celebrate my son's birthday. We had two children and six adults. Everyone was very happy with the fantastic food. They prepared a wonderful birthday cake. This restaurant is so warm and cozy, especially on a cold winter's night. I highly recommend it.

We ALWAYS go to Donny's Glidden when we head to Door County - talk about it for days before we go! The salad bar, drinks & food never disappoint! The one thing that we joke around about is that a couple of the waitresses are almost robotic - it's FUN to interact & talk about the area the people who... More

Even though we didn't have any reservations we were fortunate to be seated immediately upon arrival at 4:00 PM on New Year's Eve. It was still light enough to enjoy the amazing view of Lake Michigan and the dining room was still looking beautifully decorated for the Christmas holiday - a most festive and romantic ambiance we appreciated a lot....

We've celebrated the new year at Donny's for several years now. The bar staff, wait staff, and hostesses are so friendly. Our waitress, Julie, was especially sweet. Our meal was delicious, as usual. The kids love that it feels fancy "but not too fancy". We've tried a few other supper clubs in Door County, but Donny's is our favorite!

My wife and I visited for our anniversary and it was fantastic! If you desire the classic supper club experience with the added bonus of location on Lake Michigan, definitely try to go off the beaten path to dine at Donny's. Overall the food was excellent, steaks are mouthwatering, and of course don't forget a Brandy Old-Fashioned Sweet.

Thank Jpet68
