There's a lot to like about the English Inn, Fish Creek. There is a partner restaurant one passes on the way up the peninsula. Don't forget the dollar off coupon which is in one of the magazines or newspapers in its entrance. I had a Door County Cherry Cheesecake martini from their interesting... read more

I might have caught this place on a bad day, because it was way too crowded with a long line waiting for a mediocre buffet, featuring only ham and turkey and no prime rib unlike all the competitors. It had very few desserts and should have had separate food stations set up for breakfast items and salads, to avoid the... More

We have driven by this restaurant for years and never stopped. Based on Trip Advisor reviews we finally ate here. It's an old-timey supper club with delicious food! We had the whitefish (locally caught) and halibut. Both beyond delicious. Dinner comes with choice of several salad types and potato choices. Recommend the hot bacon dressing and hot bacon dressing with... More

It is a rare trip to Door County that we don't eat at least once at the English Inn. Food is tremendous, service is top notch, and the staff are wonderful. The atmosphere is a combination of warm and cozy mixed with the level of charm you should expect with this fine dining experience. Don't miss it.

Enjoyed the AUCE fish on Friday. 5 choices of fish, plus frog legs. LOVE the medieval atmosphere! Service was excellent. If you order an ice cream drink, make sure you are sharing it with someone. They are HUGE.

The English Inn has the best fish fry in the whole state of Wisconsin. It is worth the effort to go out of your way to go to Fish Creek,WI to have a great experience and a wonderful meal.

We visited the English Inn while on the Winter Wonderland Trolley Tour. The food was good with large portions. We did not get a drink refill. The negative review was due to an interaction with a staff member for lunch. I believe she was a manager, she did not want tour guests sitting in certain areas of the restaurant, even... More

We spent this past weekend in Fish Creek just for a get-away weekend. I had read numerous reviews trying to find good places to eat since this was our first visit. I read numerous reviews, both good and bad, and decided to visit them. I could write a book on how well we were treated and how great the food... More

A curious place with an Old English Pub feel...Food has been consistently satisfying. Can tend to be rather dark inside. Always a good crowd there, which is a good indication of quality food. Not inexpensive but fair prices for the quality of foods. They tend to get an older crowd, but they get their share of tourists and families too.... More

If you are hungry, the English Inn is for you. Salads and entrees are huge and you will not leave wanting for more food. The Wellingtons, Chicken or Beef, are REALLY good. The rest of the menu is so so and the chef feels the need to cram plates with veggies or other things to cover every possible inch of... More
