The food - spectacular. Worth every dollar and every bit. The service - outstanding. We live in the Twin Cities and rarely find service this spot-on. The view - AMAZING. I grew up in the pacific and the water views (minus the snow) reminded me of home. Go early before the crowds and get a reservation. We arrived ~4:15pm and... More

Love this restaurant, great food, beautiful views, and best salad bar. The service is outstanding . Has a great bar and bartender is the best. If you go to D.C. You gotta eat here.

My family and I went to the Glidden Lodge restaurant to celebrate my son's birthday. We had two children and six adults. Everyone was very happy with the fantastic food. They prepared a wonderful birthday cake. This restaurant is so warm and cozy, especially on a cold winter's night. I highly recommend it.

We ALWAYS go to Donny's Glidden when we head to Door County - talk about it for days before we go! The salad bar, drinks & food never disappoint! The one thing that we joke around about is that a couple of the waitresses are almost robotic - it's FUN to interact & talk about the area the people who... More

Even though we didn't have any reservations we were fortunate to be seated immediately upon arrival at 4:00 PM on New Year's Eve. It was still light enough to enjoy the amazing view of Lake Michigan and the dining room was still looking beautifully decorated for the Christmas holiday - a most festive and romantic ambiance we appreciated a lot....

We've celebrated the new year at Donny's for several years now. The bar staff, wait staff, and hostesses are so friendly. Our waitress, Julie, was especially sweet. Our meal was delicious, as usual. The kids love that it feels fancy "but not too fancy". We've tried a few other supper clubs in Door County, but Donny's is our favorite!

My wife and I visited for our anniversary and it was fantastic! If you desire the classic supper club experience with the added bonus of location on Lake Michigan, definitely try to go off the beaten path to dine at Donny's. Overall the food was excellent, steaks are mouthwatering, and of course don't forget a Brandy Old-Fashioned Sweet.

Great Lakes area dining in a classic supper club country setting. Bar serves good drinks. Salad bar is super. Hard to beat their fresh fish dinners. Great for special occasions.

My wife and I have been enjoying Donny's for over 15 years; we've shared great times with friends and family alike on numerous getaways to The Peninsula. The atmosphere is cozy without being too over-the-top cabin kitsch and the views, especially in Summer can be downright breathtaking. Donny's waitstaff have always been impeccable; they are attentive without being intrusive and... More

Homemade soup & bread. Good salad bar all included with your meal. It has become our restaurant to celebrate our anniversary each year. Great view & atmosphere. The steak & vegetables melt in your mouth & are seasoned to perfection! We go as soon as they open for the early bird special on Monday night. No better place to celebrate... More
