Driving by on a rainy Sun. night, we decided to try this restaurant again. We had been there a few years ago and it wasn't very good. What a change! This is now a "don't miss" restaurant.
The rooms are beautiful and comfortable. Our server, Victoria, was welcoming, enthusiastic, and vey knowledgeable on the menu. We did have some delays, but Victoria kept us informed on the progress of our entrees. So many servers will just disappear when there is a lag in the kitchen.
We started with crab cakes and the delicious, crusty, warm bread. The wine list gave a good selection and the Pinot Grigio went well with the crab.
Next was a very tasty baked french onion soup for one of us and the absolutely fantastic spinach, cherry salad for the other. It had dried cheries, waterchestnuts, shaved parmesan, almonds, and a gourmet hot cherry,bacon dressing. One of the best salads I've ever had.
Our main courses were a porterhouse and a 10 oz. filet, both tender and cooked to perfection.
Carot cake for dessert was excellent.
All in all, this was a better dining experience than we expected. The English Inn will definitely go on our repeat list.
Congratulations to the new owners, the chef,and our server.
