The food was very good and our waitress was excellent. We didn't feel the most invited however. We walked in and were asked our reservation name and we said we didn't have one and the lady went "oh" and turned around and started humming. The high society surroundings and golf club members that were a majority of the guests made... More

Although we were not staying at the Glidden Lodge, we drove over to have dinner on night. The restaurant sits right next to Lake Michigan so the views are outstanding. The food was very good and the service was average.

We were treated by our son and his wife to a dinner at this great restaurant. He made the reservations from Minnesota by phone and had never seen the place personally. He made an excellent choice as they placed us at the window over looking the lake, as he asked. The table was very elegantly set which included a bouquet... More

My in-laws brought us here a few years ago for a special dinner, and we come back at least once every year. Everything on the menu is terrific. The staff is friendly and seems to really care about your experience. Drinks are great as well! Would recommend having a reservation, especially if a weekend or during peak season.

The prime rib is amazing, cooked to your specification. Even the smallest cut is often too large for me to eat for dinner. He salad bar is nothing special, but the soups are good. A good wine and dessert section. The restaurant is usually crowded, and reservations are recommended.

Enjoy a beautiful patio view right on Lake Michigan. Food is always dependable. Service was really good even on a busy summer weekend. Tenderloin was really good and prime rib too. Others said walleye and haddock were good too.

Date night was made extremely memorable by Donny and his staff. With reservations made, we were sat immediately. The server was great! The food excellent from the escargot to the steaks and shrimp. Their salad bar was good and I'm going home and try to recreate the Pepper Pot soup, the best I've ever had.
