I read all the reviews on TripAdvisor, and was curious. I looked at the website for Donny's and the pictures of the food told the entire story. The food looks very blah, and that is exactly how it tasted. No seasoning on any of the dishes our group ordered. No wonder everyone says to get their meals Gliddenized. That means... More

This cozy restaurant is tucked away on a little road running along the shore of Lake Michigan, but people sure know how to find it. Recommend reservations or it may be hard to get a table on a Saturday night. Ambiance is charming, lake view if it is light enough is beautiful and food is excellent. Service was top notch... More

Nice salad bar, delicious soups, food was great. But....my husband's steak was rare and he ordered it medium. Waitress didn't check back after serving. When she brought our bill, I told her to let the chef know his steak was rare not medium. The waitress snapped back (loudly) that the time to tell her that was shortly after serving, not... More

The menu is pretty standard, but they do an outstanding job with it. I had the walleye, something I often order in restaurants, and I was blown away by how good it was. My husband had the scallops, and they were fantastic. The soups were excellent: homemade and tasty. The wine list was rather skimpy. The view and the atmosphere... More

We stop periodically when the Sturgeon Bay area. Prime Rib special on Thursdays is hard to beat as is the salad bar

The food is very good and the staff is excellent. There isn't a lot of parking and no handicap parking. Also the salad bar is next to the bathrooms which makes for a lot of people needing to cut through the line. I highly recommend the prime rib.

Once again you just can't go wrong to eat at Donny's! Excellent service, drinks and food. The first night we had the perch and breaded shrimp. Perfectly done all around with plenty to eat. Absolutely one of the best baked potatoes we've ever had. Salad bar is very neatly done with all very fresh offerings. Soups are also excellent. The... More
