We went for our 5 year anniversary. Wonderful food, try the spinach salad - it has a wonderful dressing you can buy on your way out! Great service, great atmosphere!

We dined at the English Inn during the 4th of July weekend. The food was very plentiful and overall good. The service was a bit slow but there were several large groups around us too. I would recommend it for the prime rib and fish of the day.

The English Inn is now one of our favorite stops to go for dinner every time we visit Door County. The food is beyond compare, and the steaks & prime rib are to die for. Deliciously prepared, with awesome side dishes, the restaurant doesn't disappoint. While the prices may seem a little high to some,Mathis is a fine dining restaurant,... More

We visited the English Inn for the first time based on serval recommendations and we were not disappointed. Before I talk about the great food we had, I need to talk about the service we received from our waitress Crystal. Our soup just came out and our 4 month old decided he wanted some attention and started to cry. We... More

We had eaten here 9 years ago, and when our travels took us back to the area, knew this was a place we had to visit again. It's dark wood on the inside, very cozy; seemed to be more private the last time we were there, but was more open this time. Maybe we just didn't remember correctly. Food was... More

Not too thrilled with 2 areas : The garden, which is pretty nice to sit in for a drink was not well kept. Had to clean our table and seating in order to enjoy a drink outside. Also, the bartender ignored us while waiting to order our pre-dinner drink until we, and another couple had to say something to be... More

The food is great and the Inn has character from days gone by. We enjoyed the shrimp and my husband had frog legs which he stated were good.

Hands down, they have the best escargot in WI. It can be a little dark inside, but the food and service more than make up for it. The Halibut was some of the best I've had. Traditional spinach salad with warm bacon dressing is a treat. Not good with large groups but that's a minor point. If you are in... More

Nice atmosphere and friendly staff but I expected more for the price. My husband had prime rib and it was a little tough and fatty. I had a large mandarin salad with a chicken breast and for 18.95 I expected lettuce other than iceberg that wasn't even green! High grade prices for low grade food. Disappointed !
