Prices are high for everything in this place, but the atmosphere and quality of the food are worth the trip on a special occasion.

My friend and I were on a get-away weekend and decided on one expensive dinner out. We chose the English Inn on Sunday. I ordered grilled salmon. It was very thin, very dry and had a fishy taste. I should have sent it back, but didn't. Definitely NOT worth the price. The spinach salad was great! She had the Chicken... More

You know how people say "you get what you pay for?"..well, you certainly do at The English Inn. Menu has great variety, not to disappoint. My husband had the king prime rib, blackened; said it was the best, most tender prime he'd ever had. I had the baked grouper, which was very good. All dinners come with soup or salad.... 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

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 mixed drink list, about 15 drinks on... 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
