We ate at the English Inn on the final night of a fall trip to Door County. Our meal was delicious (pistachio halibut and whitefish oscar), the service was excellent, attentive but not rushed. Despite not having reservations, we were promptly seated at a table with a great view to the lighted grounds. Our experience was wonderful and we will definitely return. Highly recommended!

When visiting Door County, my wife and I always set aside one evening to dine at the English Inn. Despite the many great restaurants in the area, consistency is the key and we always have a spectacular experience.

The atmosphere is rich and bold with a medieval theme. The servers are well trained and extremely attentive and personable. The seafood chowder is amazing, as is the other appetizers and fresh salads. I have been ordering their pistachio encrusted halibut for years. Extraordinary! The cuts of meat are plentiful and prepared to perfection and the sides are always a great compliment.

The other positive is the English Inn is open a bit later then many of the other restaurants which is great if you and your dinner companions get a late start. As usual, the English Inn never disappoints!

English Inn has a wonderfully unique atmosphere. It is a rustic building with flame heaters out front with seating. Inside, it has an old England feeling with the décor. The service was nothing short of perfect. You HAVE to have the seafood. I had a special of the day, pistachio encrusted Alaskan Halibut -- some of the tastiest fish that I've had, including in Hawaii. My wife had the French dressing basted whitefish, and it was also wonderful. We overheard the people at table next to us rave about their seafood and prime rib. Another item not to miss is the spinach salad with their hot bacon dressing!

I had the steak and the pan fried fish with a great bowl of cheese covered french onion soup. It was expensive but the food was VERY good and the portions were bigger than I expected. Walking in to the place the ceiling were low and like walking into a cave and opened up into the dining rooms. Seemed to have older clientele visiting the establishment but very busy and confusing when trying to leave.

This a wonderful restaurant. Our trips to Door County would not be complete without a visit to this restaurant. We made reservations for 3 at 5pm on a Sunday. We were seated at a window with a view of the Koi pond and surrounding "forest" ...beautiful view. Our server was Martiniano.
He was great, very helpful. We had the spinach salads...full of fresh greens and their tasty hot bacon salad dressing. One of us had the halibut..very good. I had the Beef wellington...flawless,
and another member of our party had the queen prime rib. The food is exceptional. Warm bread is brought to the table. Good size portions. English Inn has a large menu, offering all kinds of selections that range in price. See you in the Spring.
