Nice salad bar, delicious soups, food was great. But....my husband's steak was rare and he ordered it medium. Waitress didn't check back after serving. When she brought our bill, I told her to let the chef know his steak was rare not medium. The waitress snapped back (loudly) that the time to tell her that was shortly after serving, not... More

The menu is pretty standard, but they do an outstanding job with it. I had the walleye, something I often order in restaurants, and I was blown away by how good it was. My husband had the scallops, and they were fantastic. The soups were excellent: homemade and tasty. The wine list was rather skimpy. The view and the atmosphere... More

We stop periodically when the Sturgeon Bay area. Prime Rib special on Thursdays is hard to beat as is the salad bar

Danny's is our favorite place to eat while visiting Door County. We have always enjoyed great food and excellent service.

The food is very good and the staff is excellent. There isn't a lot of parking and no handicap parking. Also the salad bar is next to the bathrooms which makes for a lot of people needing to cut through the line. I highly recommend the prime rib.

Once again you just can't go wrong to eat at Donny's! Excellent service, drinks and food. The first night we had the perch and breaded shrimp. Perfectly done all around with plenty to eat. Absolutely one of the best baked potatoes we've ever had. Salad bar is very neatly done with all very fresh offerings. Soups are also excellent. The... More

What can I say? A great place to eat. The atmosphere is cozy and warm starting with the fireplace that draws you in! If it is light outside, the views of Lake Michigan are wonderful. The salad, bread and soup bar has choice, but is not overwhelming. Let's just say my husband nor myself have never had an entrée we... More

That's right folks, the best meal of my life!! This place is a must-visit. Reservations highly recommended because it's so amazing, it's packed all the time. We were greeted immediately upon entering - all staff was efficient and very friendly. We got a table exactly at our reservation time and our waitress was at our table immediately. She was sweet...
