This was a stop for us on our annual Door County visit every June, and it was recommended by a local. We were not disappointed! It was very good, the service was amazing and the view was breathtaking!

We got there at 5:55 and went straight to the Hostess to check in. She acknowledged us and told us to sit down and wait until she... More

Outstanding service and food. Special Aunt and Uncle from Grand Rapids, Michigan were in town for a short visit. They were very impressed and we had the Monday Lobster Special. Beautiful location on Lake Michigan in the heart of Door County. A must see!!!!

This was an exceptional meal. Based on the reviews, we went for the steak and can see why they are known for them. Cooked to perfection, they were tender and tasty.

We go to Donny's every year when we visit Door County. The building is amazing. It feels very old world in a really great way. The food is always good. Stick to the steak, that is what they excel at

Classic super club feel. Food was good and so was the service. The salad bar was good especially the soup, but their website oversell's it somewhat. Good, don't get me wrong, but a "salad bar on steroid's", it is not.
