The winner of four Best of Door County awards, Donny’s Glidden Lodge owner Tim Zellner remains humble about the honors, deflecting praise to almost everything else that makes the restaurant so popular. From more than 15,000 votes, Donny’s Glidden Lodge won for best view, best fine dining, most romantic dining experience, and best old fashioneds. Thanking his employees for making sure everything runs smoothly, Zellner attributes much of their success to his parents for their experience in the restaurant industry and perfecting their popular old fashioned mix.
Donny’s Glidden Lodge was also chosen last fall by Travel Wisconsin as one of the top 10 supper clubs in the state.
