Look at the waves on Lake Michigan. Have a cocktail at the bar with Door County's favorite bartender. Enjoy the wonderful soup and salad bar. Be served by friendly and charming waitstaff. Enjoy a superlative meal. Relax in one of Door County's most charming well appointed character filled old buildings. Go home. Sweet dreams.

Excellent prime rib. It was very busy for a cold Saturday night in late November but well worth the wait.

We had to wait, which is often a good sign. But once they found a place for us it was at a table in the middle of the traffic zone for the servers. We became an island around which wait staff was constantly zipping. The table was longer than average so it was hard for us to talk without shouting.... More

Service is king at this wonderful supper club. From Tim (the owner) at the bar to Julie our fantastic server, it was a perfect evening. Watching Tim handle the busy bar was fun and provided a nice place to chill while waiting for our table. We were seated in the beautiful main room. Unfortunately it was dark so we missed... More

Donny's Glidden Lodge is my absolute favorite restaurant in Door County. I own a Bed and Breakfast in Sturgeon Bay, named "Maple Haven"...I send all the people who stay with me there...and everyone raves about it!! Where can you get a soup and salad bar, with your entree. Can't say enough about this place!!

We have been visiting the Glidden Lodge for many years and until tonight had not tried Donny's. It was amazing. Great food and great service with beautiful views.

This restaurant is right on Lake Michigan and the views are spectacular. The meals come with soup and salad. The new England clam chowder was thick and full of clams. We both had fish entrees and were quite happy with our choices. My pan fried walleye was very good. The cheese curds are lightly fried. As we ate dinner, a... More

Visited Donny's with another couple who are seasoned Door County visitors. They made reservations before we left home, and are we glad they did. Delicious entrees we tried were the walleye, lamb chops, and the special German platter. Walleye was listed as panko crusted, but one member of our party wanted it baked sans crust, and they happy accommodated him.... More
