The view is the best on Lake Michigan, the steaks, perch and walleye can't be beat. We go there many times a year and have never been disappointed. Donny, Rita, Tim, Mary and the staff always make us feel welcome and service is prompt but not overbearing. When in Door County this is a must visit.

This was the first restaurant we ate at in Door County. We loved the atmosphere as well as the food. This is what a supper club should be. Drinks were very reasonable and you get a lot of food for the money. Service was also excellent. Definitely on my list to eat at on our next trek to Door County.

We eat here often. The Early Bird Specials are an exceptional value. Call ahead for reservations during the tourist season. The restaurant is located right on Lake Michigan with excellent views from the dining room.

We visit Door County regularly and always make a point of having dinner one night at Donny's. The steaks are fantastic. Also, the lake views, the building's architecture and ambiance and the reasonable prices keep us coming back....Wintertime weekday special - $14.95 for a 14 ounce NY Strip, potato, vegetable, soup & salad!! Don't let anyone tell you this place... More

We went to Donny's on February 14, 2014 for Valentine's Day. There was 7 of us in our group. The food was wonderful. We had chicken Wellington, prime rib and steak. The service was fast and friendly. I especially loved the salad bar and soups, New England clam chowder and chili. The place was packed, but we never had to... More

We've dined at Donny's many times and except for rather high prices, the food is good. The whitefish is very good, as are the steaks (as long as you INSIST beforehand how you want it prepared). The views are wonderful, too. However, who in the restaurant business would charge extra for ice tea fill ups??!! Our waitress informed us of... More

11 of us took a limo from Night Out Limousine to Glidden Lodge for 6:30 dinner. Everyone loved the food, especially the homemade soups on the salad bar. Atmosphere was great, and service fast/friendly

We went here recently to celebrate a birthday and had a lovely time. The atmosphere is perfect for the north woods, and we had the benefit of snow outside. Saturday evening has a prime rib special that is very generous. One of the portions was a bit fatty, but the other was great. I had walleye pike -- and it... More

Nice mid-price restaurant with a beautiful atmosphere and view. Many options for family and health conscience people-- I get the salad bar and vegetable side as my entree and my family loves the tenderloin, escargot and walleye. I would suggest sticking with traditional fare for we have found that to be their best.
