Plus some Italian food & pizza. Plus dessert. It was very tasty and good food. I'd go back when in town. The chicken was my... More

Last week we went down the ocean for the day. After playing in the ocean for a few hours we were hungry so we decided to go get a bite to eat at English's. We arrived at 12:45 pm and were told that they would be closing at 1 pm and that we would be allowed to stay in the... More

Upon entering, you are greeted. It is buffet style , but you are served. I liked that no one else was touching the utensils repeatedly. The food was excellent and the price was right.

Well, if you go to OC you owe it to yourself to at least experience Englishes for breakfast. It is a greasy spoon but still, been here forever!

Food was at best okay. My daughter loves fried chicken but not this fried chicken. Shrimp over cooked. Pizza not great. Sea food salad good.

There are far better breakfast restaurants in Ocean City. The 'buffet' was very awkward---you were served your food as you walked down the aisle (very middle school cafeteria style) rather than a traditional help yourself buffet. Food was cold and limited selection. There are many better breakfast restaurants in Ocean City!!! We wanted to try a new place so we... More

One of the best meals I had in OC! The breakfast buffet is ordinary except for the fried Chicken and waffles.... a southern tradition that with the right fried chicken is to die for! English's Fried chicken on one of their waffles with syrup and hot sauce is the bomb. Cant wait to go again!

This place is fantastic. An adult buffet was only $11, and the drinks were separate which made me uneasy at first, but the total for my meal was 15 dollars which I didn't think was a bad deal for an all you can eat joint. They had it all, from french toast to honey dew, waffles to sausage gravy with... More
