Went here with a few friends for my daughter's 20th birthday. Food was excellent, as was the intentive waitstaff. Well worth the money. I recommend the chicken, Beef Wellington, Brie starter plate and all of their desserts, especially the white mouse with raspberry and mango.

Absolutely would recommend this for a date night very intimate and historical ambiance our waiter was Mike and provided great service, as a fellow server my standards are high and I left extremely satisfied! Definitely will be back

The salad is a joke, no free refills on soda, they call themselves an English restaurant, but they don't even have real potatoes, just mashed, even with the English meals like beef Wellington, the portions are small but the entrees are good and the setting is nice no

Enjoyable lunch, nice salad, fresh rolls, excellent prime rib sandwich, fantastic creme brulee. Nice wine, but coffee from carafe could have been hotter. Beautifully decorated rooms in a charming historic building.

Birthday dinner date. Prime rib was well served but a bit cool. Pork with Scallops was great, gnocchi was less than adequate. Several large parties robbded the attention of staff.
Atmosphere and service were great. Asked for and received fireside table! Normally 5 star for every thing!

We haven't been here in a few years. We celebrated both our children's high school and college and law school graduations here some years ago. The inn is now run by Gary & Donna Nelson's son. It seems to have not missed a beat. Except for the misstep between my son's and my filet preparation(he received my rare(Pittsburg) and I his medium rare. Mislabeled in the kitchen we were informed but my dessert was gratis due to this slight inconvenience. The lobster stuffed walleye was very tasty according to my wife and the scallops and pork were also as tasty. This is not a 5 star gourmet restaurant but it is very good in a delightful setting worthy of your next special occasion or wedding gathering.

We both (my wife and I) loved the prime rib and the grenn beans, but especially the Yorkshire pudding. The lobster bisque was delicious, and my wife ate the entire shrimp cocktail! I had one of the best Whiskey sour drinks in many a year. The service (Amber) was great.

We always enjoy going to the English Inn, usually once or twice a year. The service and atmosphere are first rate. My lamb chops were wonderful but my wife complained her duck tasted a little "strong', so I rated the food at 4 stars.

Very much enjoyed the Thanksgiving meal. One comment would be that the dinner roll served was inferior to what one would expect at an establishment of this type. Also, I felt that the waiter was not well informed about the kitchen activities or kitchen processes, which made him appear to be a server.
I do plan on continuing my patronage at the English Inn.

Came down from Lansing with my girlfriend to try this place out and wasn't disappointed at all. There filet mignon melted in my mouth and there prime rib was amazing! To top it off I had one of the best crème brûlée's. can't wait to go back to try other things on their menu.
We are not strangers to the English Inn ...
We are not strangers to the English Inn but have not had the pleasure of staying overnight until last weekend. The new Croquet Cottages were beautiful, clean, and cozy. Wonderful relaxing tub, warm fireplace, and comfy bed. Dinner was delicious, we love the Inn salad and the duck sausage, and rarely have I had a better filet mignon. Wine list is excellent and wait staff was very friendly. We absolutely cannot wait to come back and repeat the experience!

Nice ambiance, good for romantic dinners. Appetizers were hit and miss. The mushroom caps were unappealing and bland, the baked brie was delicious. Pasta de mare was good but nothing extraordinary, can get comparable plate at many other restaurants for half price.
Filet mignon was one of the best I ever ate. This is definitely plate to come here for. Our service was extremely slow and inattentive. We had to wait a long time for our drinks and we wouldn't have even gotten our rolls if it wasn't for a bus person. Other patrons nearby complaint as well, they waited 20 minutes for their check to arrive.

It was our first time at the English Inn. We were celebrating our 36th anniversary. We were impressed with the food and service, and we loved the piano music playing during our dinner. Overall it was a wonderful evening with amazing food, service, and atmosphere!

We went to the English Inn for a retirement celebration. We both had a cocktail, wine and the prime rib. The meal was excellent, flavorful and perfically done. The atmosphere was quiet and reserved. The service was attentive without being intrusive. All in all a quality experience. We will return.

We celebrated a 25th work anniversary here. The grounds are beautiful and we walked around before dinner. Our table overlooked the grounds. The wine/drink list was extensive. I really liked our server, she was helpful and appropriate. The food was delicious.
Our evening was everything we were hoping for...I recommend this restaurant.
