We both ordered the special T-bone, which was supposed to be 16 ounces. It may have been 10-12 at the most. Our server, Melissa, was quite inattentive. My steak was thin, greasy, and medium done, and I'd asked for Medium-rare. The soup wasn't very warm- I had the hamburger soup, there was also a cajun jumbo or something like that.... More

Just made reservations for our up coming trip back to Door county. One of the best prime ribs we've had. Beautiful lodge and restaurant. Can't wait to get away with my wonderful husband. We both love Donny's Glidden.

I really love this restaurant. It is old fashioned in a very good way. This is not a gourmet restaurant, it is a good quality establishment with great service, a great view, and large portions of tasty high quality American food. There is a salad bar complete with two delicious soup offerings. Meal portions are good sized (including the specials!).... More

Each person in our group of seven gave their meal five stars! Ample servings for big eaters like us! We love the history of Glidden Lodge and it's been our Door County favorite for several decades. Beautiful stone and timber construction with great ambiance and an outstanding view of Lake Michigan! Guarantee you will enjoy everything about your dining experience.... More

This place has an old school supper club vibe and great food. I recommend reservations. We got in without them but we got there early because rain cut our hike short. The soups were both great and our steaks were cooked well. The lake view is great as

I made reservations 2 weeks prior for Tuesday, 9/2/14 at 5:00 pm - not a busy time. We were celebrating my daughters 31st birthday and I had requested a table by the window at the time the reservation was made, I was told not a problem. Upon arrival, we were place at the corner table in the back of the... More

For our last night in Door County, my wife and I made reservations at Donny's Glidden Lodge, primarily because one of my co-workers (who was raised in Sturgeon Bay) highly recommended it. It's not an easy restaurant to find, but the setting is on the lake and the views are magnificent. The wait staff was classic...very attentive and not too... More

We stopped here for dinner. I had the combo special for German night. My wife had the beef tips. Both dishes were very good and the service was great. Nice view of Lake Michigan from the dining room

My group of four ate here on a Friday night. It is in a beautiful setting with beautiful water view. There is a traditional interior of stone and wood. They have a nice, but average salad bar. We did not like that the dressings were not labeled. The soups and fresh bread were very good. We had the walleye, perch,... More
