Danny's Glidden Signature dish (Tenderloin on gorganzola toast points with Merlot sauce over all) continues to be my all time favorite way to enjoy a great steak! Hubby had a Ribeye, which was recommended by our server over the Prime Rib. Ribeye was a bit disappointing. This is our 4th visit in as many years to this little gem in the Northwoods. Most disturbing was the table at which we were seated. They keep their bussing stations (which are same height as the dining tables) for go-boxes, water pitchers, dirty plates, etc., in several places on the dining room floor and near tables with diners. So--we were stuck looking at our and other peoples used plates and glasses and food and on and on practically pushed closely into our table as we were eating. Since we had reservations and had asked for a "nice table" near the window overlooking lake, I wanted to ask for a different location. Hubby discouraged me from asking. Next time we'll know better and suggest you do the same if you end up in similar circumstances. Overall -- this continues to be our favorite go-to-place for a special dinner and special evening.

My wife and I had an anniversary dinner here. The view looking out over the lake was perfect for a romantic dinner. It was a Wednesday and we each ordered the daily special, a plate of German food. We probably would have done better to choose from the menu. I think they were serving a lot of the special that day and while good, it was not great and perhaps suffered from the kitchen needing to crank out so many of the same order. In particular the schnitzel was a bit soggy and cold when it should be served crisp and hot. When in Door County again we would probably eat here but order from the menu and avoid the nightly special.

The Glidden's special is not to be missed! We celebrated my husband's birthday and both had the Glidden special--steak, gorgonzola and heaven:) The boys had mac and cheese which wasn't anything to write about, but the steak was great.

Food was great, service was great, view is nice of Lake Michigan. In a cool stone building that has an interesting history. Did not stay at this resort, just ate dinner there. Breads were awesome. Walk to the end of the pier after dinner and digest a little! Only drawback is the tables are set a little too close together so a little intrusive, I like more space. Just order a couple of drinks and you wont care!
