Seafood lovers will find plenty of delicate delights here, along with local lake catches that include pan-seared whitefish and perch. The English Inn also boasts a wonderful wine list, along with many specialty drinks, such as martinis and cocktails. Dinner is served nightly, with breakfast and lunch available Thursdays through Sundays.

Very expensive for the mediocre quality of food. Cramped seating, very small restaurant. Medium rare beef wellington dough was not cooked all the way. $33 Thursday special appetizers were very small. You are definitely making alot of money off that special. We will not be returning nor will we recommend your restaurant.

We were here a month ago and had an great experience. The meal and the service made us want to go back, so we did this past weekend. The service was poor. The waitress didn’t seem to know really what was on the menu and didn’t know that they were out of a few items until we ordered. I ordered a fish special of the night and had to send it back. Rubbery with no taste. No apology given for the meal but we were not charged for it. We may go back a third time because our first experience was so good. Hesitant though because of the most recent experience.

Never again. So my wife and I had several hours off for our 10th wedding anniversary and our boys had a sitter. Starting off good! But, this restaurant failed, and miserably. 6:30 PM reservation and they couldn't meet that--they directed us to the bar. We sat at bar for 10 minutes waiting to get a drink, bartender didn't care to serve us, but when a young, 20-something female approached (just entered the bar), he served her first--how sexist and bias. Okay, thirty minutes later we were seated and finally got to have a drink order put in. The Inn is pretty, loud, but nicely decorated and cozy. The temperature inside fluctuated from hot to cold but not horrible. Our food came ~20minutes after that and everything apart my Cornish Hen was cold! Seeing that we had an appointment after dinner, we very nicely told the server when she asked us how everything was going, my words "umn, yeah. It's all cold, can you bring us a box and our check--we'll heat this up in the stove tomorrow for lunch or something..." She didn't comp the meal but took off 10%, sorta nice. On our way out of the restaurant, bartender had the cajones to "thank us" for coming for which I said nothing, glared and just left--hospitality is no industry for misogynistic behavior and bias.

Friday night fish fry not worth the price. Had a new waitress who was trying hard. Not sure if the delays were on her or the kitchen staff?

My wife and I have been to the English Inn many times over the years and it never ceases to amaze us! The view from the patio is amazing, especially when the sun is setting. The food is great and the wait staff is wonderful. Request to sit outside! You won’t regret it!

The bartender and our waitress were awesome - knowledgeable and very friendly. The food comes in large portions - we were given a few lobster tail since we ordered 2 entrees. (Apparently only on Sat nights). We will be going back again!

Our reservation was for the english inn at fish creek. Seated outside, we had a nice experience. We'll have to try the indoor dining room to give a fair review. Thanks.

This is my dad’s favorite place so we went there for his birthday- and it was wonderful. We sat outside on the patio and watched an amazing sunset over the bay. Our server Aisha was great, food was wonderful. Also low noise levels are important to me and on the patio we could have a nice conversation and actually hear each other!
They also sang happy birthday to my dad with a candle in his dessert. Thank you English Inn for an evening we will remember for a long time!

I service was very slow! Our sever was taking care of several large tables and was not able to be attentive to ours. We were almost done with our dinner before she had a chance to ask how are dinner was and if we need anything. What we all wanted another drink. The hostess was not busy at all and could have been helping out server.

Our table had the french dip, cheese curds, stuffed french toast and perch sandwhich.
All were created with a custom twist and not Boiler plate recipes. Nice to try something familiar but with flair.

Enjoyed our first time here. We got there in between lunch and breakfast on a Sunday, so could order either meal. Initially the place was busier, and very noisy. We noticed a drop in the noise as people left, and were glad no one was seated next to our table, so we didn’t have to fight more noise! Food was good, large portions. The view is nice as well. Hope to get back sometime for dinner.

Breakfasts were awesome. The portions are quite large and perfectly prepared. This will be a breakfast spot for us. Dinners are very good too. Atmosphere is quiet and relaxing with a good choice of music. Highly recommend sitting outside if you are able.

Dress in layers of you get cold easy. Their HVAC system leaves something to be desired and their method of solving that is to give customers a blanket. They have probably crammed a couple tables too many in that dining room as well. Still, it's a good place if you're looking to go somewhere for a special occasion or fine dining.

My wife and I went during restaurant week. I would think a restaurant would want to perform at a higher level. First course, I had the bruschetta. The bread was soggy from the tomatoes sitting on it so long. My wife had the clam chowder. She really enjoyed it. For my entree I had the 14 oz. ribeye. The steak wasn’t high quality because of the amount of tallow throughout the steak. Very tuff to chew. I also had asparagus as my side. I expect the asparagus to be crisp, what I received was over cooked and soggy. My wife had the Beef Wellington. With her entree she took the twice baked potato. The potato was like it sat under a heat lamp for hours. It was very dry. Lastly I had the Brandy Alexander for my dessert. It was completely melted. After I received mine, I sat and watched the bartender make 3 more ice cream drinks. 2 of which sat for 8 minutes the last one was still there when we left, which from my estimate was over 12 minutes. I did not have a good experience, and looking at the menu there is no way I’m paying those prices for that. I will spend my money at Chefusion or Plaes Bistro.

We went to the English during Restaurant Week. We had a window seat right by the koi pond- so very pretty! We had rib eye and Beef Wellington- both were excellent. Our server was the best. The only down side was the noise level- very loud- but to be expected with the large crowd. Would highly recommend!

I'm split on the idea of recommending the English Inn. Allow me to qualify that comment by saying, only for certain items. Generally their Wellingtons are good. However during this recent visit (3) of us had their "Beef Wellington" and one was way over cooked and was sent back. This particular visit was a trial for several of us in our party, since we had dined there a few weeks earlier and were dissatisfied with the food, service and value. In summary, I would say they lack consistency in there food preparation which shows in the final product.

Bar staff was fun and attentive. The food was good. The pastry on the Wellington’s were uncooked probably due to how thick it was. The outside looked great. I would recommend the banana cream pie.

My husband and I ate at The English Inn for restaurant week and were very pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious. We were especially impressed by the entire waitstaff- everyone was extremely pleasant, always refilling water glasses and taking empty dishes away. Our waitress went above and beyond to make sure we were enjoying our experience and was very friendly.

Restaurant Week but. Very slow. French dip was tough. Waitress trying hard but too many tables. Noise high when restaurant full. Fish Creek location better.
