Great food and ambiance

The food here is always reliably well-prepared and of high quality. Lovely lodge-like setting within feet of the shore of Lake Michigan.

We choose to eat here since it was out last night. It was a Wednesday, so it wasn't too busy however I'm guessing in the summer time that changes quite a bit. Staff were very friendly. Their bar has all top shelf liquor and has a few of the local wines in the area along with a fairly nice wine... More

Good food at a reasonable price when compared to the other places. For the same or less money for so called comparable places, this is one of the best around. Step aside Outback Steak House, Long Horn Steak house and Nightengale restaurant. This hub has the right stuff. The water views are great and the place gives off a fine... More

Donny's Glidden Lodge has a beautiful water view and awesome food. Each night they have different specials plus an excellent salad bar. Service is excellent and it is a good place for a quiet evening during the off season.
