During the last 10 years, my husband and I have given this restaurant 3 tries for dinner. 1st time, the food was of low quality but service was good. 2nd time, the food and service were both good but while trying to have an after dinner cocktail at the bar, we were blatantly ignored while the bartender (we found out...

15 minute wait for a reserved table, no problem on a holiday weekend. Server Katelyn was attentive and pleasant, knowledgeable on the menu. Well paced service. Seafood dishes creatively prepared. Nice wine and martini list. Attractive bar and dining room, both with fireplaces. Decorated well but a bit dark. Not too loud for conversation. In the summer try the outdoor... More

I had been here several years ago and enjoyed my visit, so when friends suggested this place for dinner, I jumped at the invitation. We didn't have reservations on a Saturday night, but we got in right away around 6 p.m. The place was about half full when we left. Our waitress took awhile to greet us, while we watched... More

Was surprised for my birthday for a long weekend in Door County. Driving by we were captivated by the knights and decided to try it. Best decision ever!! The food was superb, we both had the fillets and they melted in our mouths. The décor, the service, everything was first class. We were going to try another place the next... More

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!
