For our last night in Door County, my wife and I made reservations at Donny's Glidden Lodge, primarily because one of my co-workers (who was raised in Sturgeon Bay) highly recommended it. It's not an easy restaurant to find, but the setting is on the lake and the views are magnificent. The wait staff was classic...very attentive and not too... More

We stopped here for dinner. I had the combo special for German night. My wife had the beef tips. Both dishes were very good and the service was great. Nice view of Lake Michigan from the dining room

My group of four ate here on a Friday night. It is in a beautiful setting with beautiful water view. There is a traditional interior of stone and wood. They have a nice, but average salad bar. We did not like that the dressings were not labeled. The soups and fresh bread were very good. We had the walleye, perch,... More

We enjoyed an excellent meal and an even more excellent view of Lake Michigan. The four persons in our party each chose a different entrée and we were all completely satisfied. The special for the evening was German food and the native German in our group highly recommended his meal.

Last year we ate at Glidden Lodge at least three times. We were only able to get a nice table view window once even though we requested it with our reservation. The salad bar is very simple but the soups are good and I think the prices are reasonable. I usually have the filet mignon and have it served with... More

My husband and I decided to try Donny's Glidden Lodge for a nice, quiet, intimate dinner that was a little more upscale than burgers. You definitely need reservations! Grabbed a drink at the bar and made friends with the bartender until our table was ready. The view from our table was beautiful. Hubby ordered a lamb chop and polish dumpling... More

My husband and I first went to Donny’s on the Monday night we arrived in town. It was such a great atmosphere and we received such nice service we decided to come back 4 nights later to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. We met with the hostess and she helped us pick out the table and time we wanted for... More

My wife and I stopped in without reservations and although they were booked for the night, the staff was able to work us in quickly. Service and drinks were excellent, the food was amazing. We never felt we were an extra burden by the staff, just the opposite…made us feel like we were old friends who just popped in. Next... More
