Excellent service in a lovely spot with a view of Lake Michigan out the window! Soup and salad bar with your entree, not very remarkable, but tasty. Our rib eye steak and grilled shrimp dinners very good. A very nice meal and we'd recommend finding this out-of-the-way spot.

For this area, Donny's is one of the better dinner restaurants. Food is quite good. Wine list is good too. Service was smiling and pleasant. Salad bar could use a makeover. If you can get a table near the gorgeous windows that have spectacular views of Lake Michigan, you will be happy. Welcome was smiling and warm.

Family of 4. Dinner was delicious, we were seated at the windows with a beautiful lake view! Our waitress was very nice. Salad bar isn't spectacular but it did the trick-good wine list and dinner selections.

This is a fabulous restaurant right on the water. Enjoy the water views and the fantastic salad, soup and bread bar! You can go early for their early bird specials but I always get the Glidden Steak. Scrumptious! Every bite is fantastic! It's a bit spendy but perfect for date night or a special occasion. You'll love it!

we received a gift certificate to Donny's Glidden Lodge and have tried it on two different occasions. They seem to cater to a certain clientele that they're familiar with. both times we were there the blonde haired lady who was the hostess seemed rather snooty and unpleasant. The food is nothing to write home about and rather pricey. This evening... More

Donny's never fails to impress us! We have dined here on multiple occasions and always leave full, happy, and very satisfied. The filet was fantastic and my wife loved the walleye. The service was great, and the atmosphere was lovely. Can't wait to come back!

We visited Donny's Glidden Lodge to celebrate our anniversary. It was a Friday night and busy, but plenty of room to wait in the bar. We had reservations at 6:30 but didn't get seated until 7. No big deal as they kept us informed. The meal was fabulous. My husband had the clam chowder and I had the pepper pot... More

Try the signature filet, great pepper pot soup and good salad bar with nice open view of Lake Michigan. If there is a better place in Door County,wish I had found it too.

Danny's Glidden Signature dish (Tenderloin on gorganzola toast points with Merlot sauce over all) continues to be my all time favorite way to enjoy a great steak! Hubby had a Ribeye, which was recommended by our server over the Prime Rib. Ribeye was a bit disappointing. This is our 4th visit in as many years to this little gem in... More
