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

People, including our party of four, come for the tranquil setting along Lake Michigan. Soup and salad bar are small bit good. However, entrees are just average. If you want a refill of your soda pop, be prepared to pay for it, which is really tacky given what they charge for food. When a member of our group complained about... More

We were here in 2012 and came two or three times then because the service and food were so excellent. This time we chose Wednesday night to come back because they serve German food as the special. Oh my gosh. It was delicious. I had tenderloin tips and my husband had the sausage platter. The service, atmosphere, food, view, are... More

We have been to the Glidden Lodge about 10 times over the past years when in Door County. We always love the ambiance, particularly the location on the shore of Lake Michigan -- can't beat it. We ask for a window table and get one nearly every time. The menu is very complete but we seem to gravitate to the... More

Glidden Lodge restaurant is a wonderful option tucked away in the woods on the lake shore. Beautiful views. The food was fabulous. They have a soup and salad bar that has homemade soups everyday. The food was cooked to order and the service was prompt and courteous. The ambiance was a bit upper class, but people were dressed casual comfort.... More
