The English Inn Ratings and Reviews

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 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.

This restaurant is an exceptional place to dine. The food and service are neither one surpassed by any establishment I have dined in the midwest.
I would recommend it to anyone and have recommended it to many already.

The chicken sandwich was very good and the dessert was outstanding! The steak sandwich was a disappointment, very greasy and the meat didn't seem very high quality. With a limited lunch menu I expected each sandwich to be far above average.

Amazing service, great food. The prime rib and filet were amazing. The tableside caesar was a unique experience compared to local restaurants. The grounds are beautiful. It's beautiful little gem in a place you would not expect it.

The English Inn is housed in a former automobile executives home. It's been a restaurant and inn for over 25 years. The house is remotely located in central Michigan but worth the effort to get there. The house has been divided into small dining rooms and has been very well cared for. The dining room where we were seated had a pianist that provided very nice background music that was a nice addition to the meal. The grounds were also well cared for. Ambiance and service could not have been better. The food was good, but not outstanding. Prices were reasonable for the quality of the experience. It's a great place for a special occasion and the food was above average.
Food is outstanding ... not inexpensive ...
Food is outstanding ... not inexpensive but much better value than similar venues in or around larger cities. Weekday evening was quiet and very pleasant atmosphere (one loud couple showed up near the end of our meal, but that's the exception). Prior visits on weekends have been busier and with more noise, but still extremely nice. The staff is attentive, but not intrusive. Highly recommend for occasions like birthday, anniversary, catching up with family and friends. We try to have a meal at The English Inn every time we visit the area, which is about once or twice a year.

The restaurant & grounds were very nice and we enjoyed the ambiance of the Inn and the setting for our special occasion. On our next visit, we would request a table by the window overlooking their beautiful gardens. It was our first experience dining at the Inn and it met our expectations.

We thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and the meal. The server was great. The room was quiet which was very pleasant. We were not rushed at all, we had plenty of time to savor everything. Their chef is a treasure.

Absolutely fell in love with the English Inn. The service was superb, the ambiance delightful with light piano music in the background and the food incredible. I was taken back to the 1920's and can't wait to go back!

My husband and I went for the first time for our 25th anniversary, the food and staff were wonderful and the walk around the grounds was gorgeous. We went on Wednesday to the restaurant and we were back on Friday to the pub

The Inn looked beautiful, but the service and food were unimpressive. I had the surf and turf and it presented well, but lacked flavor. My guest had the prime rib and felt the same. Our appetizers were very good and so was our salad. Drinks were very week and wine pours appeared to be 5 oz at best.

We went to The English Inn for our 15 year anniversary dinner, we knew we wanted to go somewhere special for our dinner. The English Inn provided such a lovely, quiet, romantic setting. The wine list was wonderful, the service was top-notch. The grounds were lovely to walk around and tour. The little pub downstairs was a great hideaway for a nightcap. The food was superb! We were very happy with everything from start to finish. Fine dining at its best!
