We love to celebrate special moments at the English Inn. We celebrated my husband’s 82nd birthday on Tuesday evening and it was a lovely and delicious celebration! We always feel so welcome. The service is great!
Quite simply, the English Inn is the best restaurant in the greater Lansing area. It’s really the only five-star restaurant and hotel. The cottage rooms are especially entrancing. And it’s already decorated for Christmas!
The food was best i ever had! Every chef creation melted in my mouth.
We celebrated our 42 anniversary and it was exceptional. From the wait staff to dinner to dessert an outstanding meal. There was no feeling of rushing us and the ambiance was exceptional. We make this a yearly event and look forward to it v
Best in Lansing area. Great experience every time.
My husband and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary at The English Inn. The service and food was outstanding. I would highly recommend this place !
As usual, a great time, great food and a really nice place!
We always enjoy celebrating at The English Inn. We had a beautiful evening celebrating my birthday and wedding. anniversary. Thank you for making our evening special.
Perfect place to get away from the busy city, food is always top notch!!!!
This is one of my favorite fine dining restaurants.
A perfect place to celebrate a family event. Very friendly staff, great service and delicious food.
Wonderful setting, excellent service. Desserts weren’t up to par. Will go again though.
My boyfriend and I came here for Sweetest Day! We really enjoyed our time thank you so much for making her day so special❤️
The English Inn goes out of their way to make you feel like you are having an elegant, and safe, dining experience. The waitstaff was great and very attentive. There were so many great choices on the menu! The Baked Brie was a great warm start My husband and I had a hard time deciding our entrees but narrowed it down to 2 choices and shared at the table. Both were amazing and the perfect portion size. I had a couple of their specialty cocktails, trying something new, and they were unique and refreshing!
We dine here for most of our special occasions and have never been disappointed. Outstanding food and service. Highly recommend them!
Wonderful in every respect! Great way to enjoy our anniversary!
Amazing food! My husband and I had an excellent time and our server was phenomenal! They also did an amazing job of making sure we felt safe/social distanced. 10 outta 10, would recommend!
Portions were skimpy. Was just an OK experience. Staff was very nice.
Great food, attentive staff, comfortable atmosphere, overall loved it
Service and atmosphere were both great. Really wish the restaurant would offer baked potatoes as an option. Mashed potatoes a bit dry and not much flavor. We ordered prime rib and garlic, butter large grilled shrimp. Neither of us though there much garlic or buttery taste to them. We have been there twice before and decided next time to try another place.
It exceeded our expectations. Wonderful atmosphere and very attentive, friendly staff. We will be back!
We love going to the English Inn for special occasions. The food and service is always wonderful.
Nice ambiance, great food! A great place for a special dinner! Anniversary, birthday etc!
Somewhat hidden treasure. Unique setting and atmosphere. Would consider coming back again.
I've been there several times and the Inn seems to be showing it's age. Peeling paint on the exterior. Interior luster is fading, too. I don't know if they've removed some pieces from the main floor and dining area, but the decor wasn't as elegant as in the past. Some centerpieces were in the transitional plastic containers you pick up from the gardening floor at Home Depot. The table flowers were browning. The table lamps looked like something you'd pick up in the Dollar Store and probably more important, the service wasn't that good. Our server was a bit brusque and didn't share Sunday Prix Fix info until asked. The entrees weren't plated as nicely as in the past either; smaller portions and the sauce had dried as though it'd been sitting in wait for some time before it made it's way to the table. Odd considering we were one of two tables at the time.
Everything was perfect and our server was really nice and explained the current "pandemic rules". Service was fast as well.
We enjoyed our meal and evening very much and will be returning.
I absolutely loved the grounds, room, service, and food during my first time experienceing the English Inn. I will be back and recommend to family and friends for a wonderful dining experience.
We always enjoyed the quiet and upscale ambience of the English Inn. Recommend that everyone try this restaurant at least once and tour the beautiful grounds.
The food at The English Inn is fantastic. We have dined here twice before and it has been above expectations every time.
Dinner was wonderful! Great experience! Will be back again!
This was a perfect setting and meal to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. The historic nature of the inn creates a warm, inviting setting to spark pleasant conversation. We were warmly greeted at the door and seated in one of the dining areas, where upon our server welcomed us to the Inn and explained the menu. Overall, she was friendly, helpful, and took care of us with just the right balance of checking on us, but not interrupting our meal. Our food, from the appetizer to the dessert, was delicious. I would recommend the Inn to anyone seeking a special dining experience.
As always, great food, great service and great ambiance. Been coming here for at least 20 years for our anniversary and always look forward to it!
This was not our first visit to the Innn. Most probably due to the virus environment the service was slimmed down to be as efficient and safe as possible. Under n normal circumstances I would have ordered the filet [I don't care for red wine sauce but prefer Sc. Hollandaise or Bernaise] and whipped creamed potatoes are not my first [or second] choice. The Walleye I ordered was somewhat on the small side and there could have ben a little more if the pilaf. My wife's Beef Wellington was somewhat more rare than the M/r she ordered and the crust could have ben baked just a touch more.
Nevertheless we will return and hope that the old menu will return soon.
I personally would like to see a dress code or at least coat and tie≥
Even though everyone has to social distance, we still had a lovely dinner at the English Inn. It is a perfect location to celebrate a special event. Yet, the atmosphere is also relaxed and not "stuffy". So, it is also a great place to just enjoy a delicious meal in a beautiful setting.
It was fabulous! We will definitely return! Food and service were outstanding. The menu is exceptional with a variety of wonderful choices. We took a small walk prior and the grounds are well kept and beautiful. There is a rich history with the location as well. All in all, top drawer and a place to celebrate something special or just a wonderful night out!
We enjoyed our experience a lot. The food was outstanding and the service impeccable.
My wife and I visited for our anniversary and it was a very pleasant experience. Overall, I would highly recommend the restaurant for a romantic night out. The price was a little high for what you get but not incredibly so. Would definitely plan another visit and possibly stay the night next time.
Charming and elegant atmosphere, quiet and intimate. Service quick to attend, tidy, knowledgeable and accommodating. Our server protected my spouse by letting us know that, while his food was allergen free, mine was not, so we ought not share. The food is always properly prepared and seasoned. I adore the English Inn.
Though the food was good, we asked if our beef wellington had any pork and were told no. After we started eatting we realized it did. We made the waitress aware but nothing was done. We don't eat pork for religious reason. Everything else was great.
