Need a reservation and so many must like their meals. I had a pan fried fish filet with two large nicely cooked pieces. The salad buffet is nothing special, but does offer two soups, my soup choice was not something I liked. My wife ate a very tough lamb chop and our son had very tough pieces of shish kebob,... More

We highly recommend the prime rib on Saturday. The food was amazing and plenty was served. Out of the way location, but worth the drive.

Arrived for dinner when the restaurant opened at 4PM and my wife and I were seated at the windows looking out at Lake Michigan. Our server was Gretchen who was thoughtful, attentive and true professional. The place has a full bar and the food was very, very good. The prices are not excessive and dinner includes soup and a salad... More

Old school Steak & Potatoes place with good food, good service and great water views. Bring your appetite here as the large cuts of steak and included soup & salad will test your table side perseverance

Donny's Glidden Lodge has more charm and ambiance than any other venue in the county. The food is great and service could not be better. Dinner at the Lodge is a "must do" when I come to Door County.

We ate here on a Thursday night with a reservation and waited about 15 past our time. The view over the lake was beautiful. They have a salad bar which was nice to have instead of spending money on a appetizer. I had steak and shrimp, my husband had the prime rib. Both were excellent and tender. I also had... More

This is the place that the locals go to. Wonderful food. Great service. It's the classic Wisconsin supper club on steroids with a view. I recommended it to some wedding guests from Illinois and they loved it.

We made reservations on a Wednesday night for 5:30 and showed up a little before 5:00 and were seated right away. Nice window table with a great view of the lake. Beautiful for sure. Glad we showed up early because by 5:30 they were almost full. We opted for the tuna appetizer. The first piece was full of gristle but... More
