Get a reservation! There is a reason why this place is busy. Food is always delicious, service is good, setting is charming - always!

The restaurant had a nice northern feel inside and out. Make sure to go when it's light out if you want to see the water. It was very busy on a Monday night, but the food came out hot and we didn't wait long for the food after ordering. The food was spectacular! Kudos to the chefs! Will return!

Donny's is the top spot for dinner in the area! Fantastic staff that wait on you like you are the only folks in the place. The bar area is wonderful with a huge fireplace that keeps the chill out. The food is great...the rack of lamb prepared perfectly and the walleye melted in your mouth. When you add in the... More

Great restaurant, outstanding atmosphere, fantastic staff. This is one of those special places. We had to wait a bit to be seated for dinner, but with a wood burning fireplace and the fantastic stone and wood décor it was a pleasurable wait. Our waitress was very good at her job, knowledgeable of the menu, there when you needed her, nice... More

"On the quiet side" of the peninsula. Lovely drive and then a great dinner. It is handicapped accessible which was important for us on this vacation. The menu had a lot of beef entrees which we all had and they were very good. Three of us had the "gliddenized" filet mignon. Yum! So peaceful watching the water lapping right outside... More

Went to Donny's on a busy Friday night with my wife without reservations. Ended up getting a seat at the bar and were served drinks by Tim. He is an amazing bartender and the service was great. The hostess told us it would be about an hour wait for dinner which without reservations was not unexpected. We were seated shortly... More

My husband and I dined here for our first anniversary celebration this past weekend. We ended up loving it! I would definitely recommend reservations. Unfortunately our first impression was slightly subpar. There seemed to have been a miscommunication regarding our reservations, which we made for 8:00 but were told we weren't on the books until 8:30 when we arrived. The... More
