Michigan natives Donna Ervin and Chris Short met several years ago while employed at a restaurant. Both loved working with food and customers, and thrived under the demands and creative challenges of a bustling restaurant. Soon, they hatched a plan to buy a place of their own where they could manage as they saw fit. In 1994, they realized their shared dream and bought this historic lakeside restaurant to provide guests with outstanding food and service.
Today, much of their success can be attributed to the continued attention to detail and emphasis on personalized guest service. Donna manages the front of the house, oversees employees, prepares desserts and develops menu features. Chris manages the kitchen and food prep staff. Whether it is your greeting at the front door, the careful preparation of your entrée, the development of new recipes for the weekly features, the creation of delectable desserts, or bringing freshly harvested produce to the kitchen, you can be sure that Donna or Chris had a hand in ensuring the Glenwood experience has been prepared to the liking of each and every guest.
