Large family vacation with 15 people. Closed the place down. Best meal to date in Door County. Very friendly staff. Food was very good. Higher priced than most in Door County but you get what you pay for. I would for sure eat here again.

This is our favorite restaurant in Door County. Were there twice this month. Monday is lobster night, and it was excellent. Had that our first night back in DC, and it is a 30 mile trip each way, but worth it. My husband had the Glidden steak the second time we were there. And I had the kabob. Both are... More

Highly recommend this restaurant !!! Four of us visited Donny's Glidden Lodge for dinner. We did not have reservations, however I would recommend unless you get there early. The building was built in the 30's, was very inviting and warm feeling. We sat by a window and had a beautiful lake view. Salad bar, soup and bread (all fresh ingredients)... More

Beautiful views of Lake Michigan with local fish specialties. We went on lobster night - locals advised us to skip the lobster and have the steak - which we did. We had our "The Glidden" not much Gorgonzola but the reduction sauce was excellent! The salad bar was a bit sad so we skipped it and the rolls offered were... More

Loved our dinner here. Food was good and plentiful. Terrific soup! It was only marred by very loud people. If noise bothers you ask for one of the rooms to the side away from large groups.

A long-standing favorite of locals and travelers, with gluten free options and ambiance inside and out, reminiscent of Door County lodges that brings you back in time! Food and service outstanding, never disappointed. Reservations a must because you surely wouldn't want to miss this opportunity for such a wonderful experience. Menu and nightly specials to fit every palate and open... More

Sometimes a place becomes so popular that they don't really need anymore business. Based on the mostly excellent reviews and reputation of being the best supper club in the area I made a reservation and drove out to this place. By the way it's not just out of the way, it's in the middle of nowhere from downtown Sturgeon Bay.... More

I have been going to Glidden Lodge for many years. It is a wonderful restaurant. It has a wonderful salad bar and the bread is always fresh. It is a supper club type atmosphere which is relaxing. Great in fall when they have a fire in the fireplace and it's warm and cozy inside!
