“Best fried chicken ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2011 via mobile

Englishs has the best fried chicken u will ever eat. It is juicy inside and crunchy on the outside. It isn't that bad for 14.95 I mean u get all u can eat fried and steamed shrimp and fish. U get and assortment of hot vegatables. Plus u get full salad and dessert bar. The place isn't that dirty either. I am a local and I come here all the time and I have never gotten sick from food yet. This place isn't that bad for all u can eat seafood and chicken. It may not look like much but it is well worth your money.

“Best Fried Chicken Period”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2011

The people who go to this place for a feedup buffet get what they deserve. Get a bucket of chicken to go and hit the beach or boat. Best bad for you carry out food imagineable. Quart of potato salad and sweet potato biscuits on the side. The buckets of chicken came waaayyy before the touristy buffet all of the reviewers are whining about.

“Sometimes you really do get what you pay for”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2011

Recently my husband and I were vacationing in Ocean City. We saw the ads for the English's Family Restaurant Breakfast Buffet and decided to try it after we read "best breakfast buffet in town." This buffet left a lot to be desired. The eggs and sausage were edible as well as the french toast however the pancakes were "mini" and tasted like they were from the frozen isle of the grocery store. In addition, the fruit was cut so thinly sliced that it didn't even warrant a taste. Also, the hostess was less than enthused to be there. This was the worst $8 breakfast buffet ever!

“Disgusting”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2011

My niece and nephews and I went on vacation together and decided to try this restaurant, in spite of the reviews. What a mistake. The only items edible were the scrambled eggs and french toast, and that's even iffy. The "fresh" biscuits were hard as a rock and tasted like feet. There was something on the buffet bar that reminded me of something my dog barfed up. It looked pretty disgusting. Needless to say, we did not nearly eat our $7.95 worth. You would think that this business would clean things up a little considering all of the bad reviews. They should just close their doors and save the local tourists from getting food poisoning or diarhea.
