    We took a friend out for his birthday and server was more concerned with friends at the bar than taking care of our table. She didn’t even ask our birthday guest if he wanted a drink. Service took 40 minutes to get salads on the table. Finally once the meal was finished, when we were walking out, that’s when we saw the server posted up in deep conversation at the bar talking to another guest. Didn’t ask if we wanted more wine, didn’t ask us how steaks were prepared. Will most likely not return.

    Food was awesome. We eat a lot of Seafood and the muscles appetizer was wonderful and very plentiful. steaks were cooked to perfection, bacon jam hashbrowns were out of this world. Our server was wonderful and attentive. I just wished you could see the lake from the windows.

    Don's Lighthouse Grille is always amazing, with an excellent menu. The place is a bit pricy.

    We ate in the bar/booth area although we were offered the dining room. We decided on the bar area because we then had the choice of the dining room entrees AND the bar eats. We ended up only ordering the dining selections. The dining room I’m sure would have quieter if not quiet. Food is Very Good for the money. I had the Wallye, my wife the stuffed Rainbow Trout . Is there better food out there? Well of course there is…but for a couple of entrees which included 2 normal sized sides for $32-34 each it’s would be quite difficult to beat. We had never been there before but we will DEFINITELY be back! It’s a great place when you something fancier ( and with better food ) than a chain, Outback, Longhorn, Landry’s(?) BUT don’t want to make the BIG leap to $50 steaks and $14 baked potatoes $16 asparagus ets etc. like Mortons, Ruth’s Chris etc. We had never been there before but we will DEFINITELY be back!

    I just moved to Cleveland this weekend and my mom was in town helping me settle in and we wanted a nice dinner. We chose don’s and couldnt be happier with our decision. We sat in the dining room and I ordered a sangria (delish) we got calamari (best calamari ive ever had outside of europe) i got filet and shrimp (also delish) and she got the steak oscar and hasnt stopped talking about how good it was. We also split the chocolate mousse which again is the best ive had outside of europe. Aside from that, our server was phenomenal. he was funny, kind and attentive. When i told him i just moved here he wrote me a list of places in the area to try. i really appreciated this. I plan on bringing my mom back to Cleveland and to Don’s for her birthday in October. our total was $135 for all that I listed. Not bad at all considering the quality of the food and the service!

    Extremely loud due to happy hour crowd. We sat in dining room where the dinner menu ($$$) is our only choice. Their bar menu which is very reasonable is only available if you sit in the bar area, which we didn’t because the noise was unbearable in order to have a conversation. The food was prepared perfectly- everything delicious. Our waitress was experienced and personable. $148 for 2 plus tip.
