This is a charming, warm restaurant with a touch of Old England. We were there for a chilly dinner in October, and while we waited for a table inside, we sat around the firepit tables outside with warm cozy blankets. We liked the blankets so much we bought two for home! Inside has English memorabilia, knights in shining armor, and... More

Second time back there and just as good as the first. Food is very good a touch pricey but the atmosphere makes up for it. Would recommend giving it a try it if you never have.

Their Beef Wellington is excellent and well worth the wait. My husband had their pan fried halibut and was very pleased. The New England Clam Chowder was very rich and creamy, almost too much for the amount of soup they serve. Our server was very discrete, helpful, and attentive. It was a pleasant and quiet dining experience. They keep the... More

Nice place with very good service, my Prime Rib and crab were very good, a little under-cooked but good, great sides too. Make sure you get the hot bacon dressing on your salad!

Back again at the English Inn during our fall excursion in Door County. Wish we had sat outside at the beautiful new fire tables. Food was mostly good but service was a bit off kilter with a somewhat odd communication style and lack of attentiveness. The hot bacon dressing is killer, just wish that they offered a caesar. Our server... More

Stopped in on a whim when we saw outside dining in November. Really cool outside heaters and table type fire pits. Had the halibut and whitefish. Very good. Also had the clam chowder and it was awesome!!! Service was good. Provided blankets to everyone who needed one. Very nice experience.

This was one of few places open during off season in Dood County. The service was excellent & the Halibut special was outstanding!

I rarely ever rate 5 out of 5 but this filet mignon changed my life. A bit pricey but it is worth it for a special occasion.

I know this place had great reviews and maybe it's the best the area can offer but it's not amazing I don't think. My husband rang and booked a table. We were told they had one at 7.15 pm. So we arrived a few minutes early. They said the table wasn't ready yet and they were a bit backed up.... More
