We stayed at the Glidden Lodge next door to this restaurant and it had come highly recommend. We were not disappointed. We went Friday night and we were seated right away. Our party of 4 all ordered steaks. 2 had the Ribeye, 1 filet mignon and 1 "The Glidden".All steaks were done perfectly as ordered and were delicious. Our waitress... More

We've dined here several times now and it NEVER disappoints. In fact, in my 69 years I've never had a better steak than the 10oz Fillet w/Glidden sauce. It is so good you will groan (as I did) when you eat it!! I promise! In fact, of the wonderful steaks from well know steak houses I might place this 1st.... More

We've come here for dinner on many occasions and the food is always excellent. The steak is the best I've had and I've had steak in most major cities in the country. The best part about this place is its location and ambience. It's a stone building with a stone fireplace inside. It's located right on the shore of Lake... More

Arrived on time for our 6pm reservation and had a short (10 minute) wait due to needing to clear some tables from the early bird special diners. The place was full but cleared out to half full once that early group was one. Ended up seated in the back corner which was a mixed bag--nice to be out of the... More

Our family gathered in door county for Thanksgiving. Per tradition we visited Donny's Glidden Lodge for cocktails and a fish fry. Nothing beats toasting a glass in front of their open fireplace. We enjoyed watching the waves hit the shore, and relaxing in this quaint setting. As always the salad bar was well appointed and the perch was great. One... More

My girlfriend and I visited the area and based on reviews chose Donny's Glidden. It is of the beaten path but it wasn't too hard to get to (even with snow). The atmosphere was good for families, a date or group of friends. We couldn't have asked for more as far as service. The food....the Salad bar was fresh and... More

The old wood and stone interior is very charming. And the view could not be better. Service was friendly and attentive. Thursday is prime rib night and it is on the early bird menu for $13, a super value. The salad bar is good and the soups were excellent. Three of us enjoyed the prime rib, rare and medium rare....

This was a hard one for me to give a rating to. It was all fine but I don't feel they lived up to their potential nor to my expectations. The setting definitely was the highlight of the evening. This old stone building, sitting at the edge of the water was breathtaking. We arrived for the early seating so we... More

Glidden Lodge is the restaurant you want to go to for the best steak in Door County. The salad and soup bar is very good, the cocktails are wonderful and the atmosphere is truly charming. You are at the waters edge of Lake Michigan and you can enjoy a drink by the fire place in the cocktail lounge. All the... More
