Last Sunday, I went to the English Inn with three members of my family to enjoy the beauty of the setting, the usually excellent food, and a chance to catch up. We were given an excellent table that we had requested. The menu offered a wide range of choices including five dishes featuring lobster (one of which was lobster on... More

The English Inn is always a fun evening or overnight or weekend getaway. We have been here for all of these and have come a number of time with friends for a get away. It is a nice retreat close to Lansing but feels like we are going away. Nice to walk the paths down along the river.

As a mother-daughter treat,we stayed at the Inn and had supper one evening. The food is simply amazing. The beef was some of the best I have ever tasted cooked perfectly, the pasta dish was very good but paled in comparison to the beef. The salad had a very tasty dressing. The service was also excellant- helpful, respectful..all the things... More

Ah - The English Inn is an establishment with a setting and ambiance unmatched in the Lansing area. Although I have not been an overnight guest (yet!) I have dined there on numerous occasions and have not once been disappointed. When you enter it is like a step back in time to those luxurious days seen mostly now in old... More

My wife and I had lunch here to celebrate our anniversary. We don't live anywhere near the English Inn but decided to take a long ride in the country and check it out. It was well worth the trip. The elegance of this mansion from yesteryear cannot be overstated. Our waiter was attentive but not obtrusive. The lunch menu is... More

Unique and beautiful little place. upscale dining but very romantic and charming. Pricey but for a celebration of some kind it's great. You get what you pay for here... delicious food that is great tasting and melts in your mouth. Yum!

Visiting our son and daughter in law, we had the pleasure of booking a Sunday lunch in this very British decorated restaurant. The staff were impeccable and very professional. The food was excellent. Rack of Lamb and Chateaubriand cooked to perfection.

My husband and I brought my parents here for Mother's Day dinner. We all enjoyed ourselves and the food. The only detractor was that the dining room was too warm and we were all a bit uncomfortable. The service was good and everyone enjoyed their meals. My parents both had the prime rib, my husband had the filet, and I... More
