We are huge supper club fans and booked this one after reading reviews on trip advisors. When we told some locals where we would be dining that night every single one said we would love it and we did. Bartender Tim makes a great cocktail and even let us sample wine before purchasing. Dinner was perfect and the beef was... More

My wife and I were staying at a B&B in the area and Donny's was recommended to us. The building and surrounding grounds were very nice and the with waves rolling up on shore added to the mood. It was somewhat loud inside, but that was expected. The drinks were excellent and the service very good even though they were... More

The tenderloin was amazing! My husband had the ribeye hoping that it would be more flavorful than the tenderloin, but preferred the tenderloin to his surprise. The salad bar was great and the clam chowder was the best I've ever had. I made reservations the day before but there was only one time left available (5:00 pm) which was a... More

First visit for dinner only. friend recommended. Beautiful outside view on the lake! Made dinner reservation for a Sunday 5:30, requested window seat with lake view. Was told that's popular, can't guarantee. Pleasantly seated on time, perfect lake view (photo). Husband enjoyed steak/lobster, I had chicken, good. Decent salad bar. Friendly staff. Highly recommend, would return to rent a room!

We love the view and the Friday fish fry is our favorite. The salad bar has two soup selections and a nice variety of salads to choose from. The lake perch is delicious.

This restaurant was recommended and we were very happy with both the food and service. It's neat that it's right on the water's edge. Our food was good and I enjoyed the salad bar as well,in particular the soup. And the dessert I chose was very good.

This is such a charming place and so welcoming. We went on a Saturday night and it was "the place to be" as it seemed every seat was occupied and there was a waiting list to get in. The view of the lake at sunset was fabulous. The salad soup bar had great soup choices - very yummy. Our meals... More

Upon entering the restaurant you walk into the dark bar with dinner tables near a fireplace and two dining rooms, the bartender politely told us where the hostess station was. Very oddly placed in the middle of the walk way between the divided restaurant rooms and the bar. Interesting to say the least, and most likely a fire hazard. Our... More

Visited on a Saturday evening, need reservations. We were seated within 10 minutes of arrival enough time for a great Old Fashion. Really hard to go wrong on any item, three people had the prime rib and one for the pork chops. On the chops one is plenty. Our service was awesome, she was full of energy and a great... More

You drive in and park. A beautiful lodge on the water. You walk in and there is a bar with people drinking and having a good time watching television. You enter a latte room that is pack with people eating. There is an open salad bar with soups, breads, and salads. It is a classic supper club prime rib special... More
