Glidden is consistently excellent. Anything on the menu is great, especially the seafood. The retro salad bar is fresh and always well maintained and has two soup choices. As is typical in Wisconsin restaurants be ready to be satisfied after soup and salad and plan on taking much of your entree home. They make a great brandy old fashion but... More

Arrived at 4:00 (as the restaurant opened) to take advantage of the early bird special and to be sure of a window table. Server was helpful, cheerful and efficient. The Special was a delicious pot roast, with soup and salad bar. My husband enjoyed the regular Monday special--lobster. He chose the baked potato. Soup & salad bar are included. After... More

As a young successful newlywed couple, we listen to recommendations. Someone had suggested we have dinner at Donny's. We walked in without a reservation, knowing we would probably have to wait and get a drink or two at the bar. Surprisingly, there were a couple tables open but they didn't offer the view we wanted. Naturally, we asked her for... More

This place is set on a gorgeous bit of Door County and every table has a fabulous view. We found the staff to be wonderful and even accommodated our family showing up half an hour early. However the food is awful. First of all the kid's menu is your basic Mac and cheese and chicken strips. So pedestrian. Restaurants, help... More

We came to eat and were told we could either get a decent seat or wait 20 minutes for a window seat. We decided to wait for the window seat. An hour later of watching many (older) individuals get sat before us, I walked up to the hostess and asked when we would be seated. They said a table had... More

We spent a long weekend in Door County to celebrate our wedding anniversary and I wanted to take my wife somewhere special. After reading the reviews on Trip Adviser I chose Donny's and made a reservation. What a wonderful experience! The restaurant is beautiful, the food wonderful, and the staff awesome. As an appetizer, if their available, order the mussels... More

If staying at Glidden Lodge, the convenience is great. The fact that so many locals gather there attests to the good food.

We just enjoyed a gorgeous sunset dinner here. Beautiful location on the shores of Lake Michigan. Lovely rustic Northwoods atmosphere. Excellent service by Tina. Delicious walleye dinner. Large portions plus 2 kinds of soup at the soup and salad bar, bread was yummy too. Only complaint is that the veggies were slightly overcooked. Would definitely recommend.
