Went to the Inn and it was nearly empty - might have been early - Server was very nice and friendly and the menu looked great! But the meals were not up to par, Beef Wellington was very subpar and most of the meal tasted like it was old or defrosted... sad as I was so looking forward to some... More

We planned to have Thanksgiving dinner in this place. Reservation was 5.30 pm, but at 5.45 pm they were not even able to say how long it takes to get table as so many people were waiting for table before us. So we had to leave to get food for children. Unbelievable poor planning.

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!
