Our private tour group stopped for lunch on our Door County Trolley tour. The service and the food was fantastic. Great choices and large portions. Be sure and stop at The English Inn when in Door County Wisconsin.

This was the second visit to this restaurant in three years and the service and food was still outstanding. The prime rib dinner was succulent, cooked to order, and large. The salads were constructed well with fresh vegetables. The Old Fashioned was done from scratch and also very good. The dining room is pleasantly decorated with a view of a... More

We ate at the English Inn during the winter months so could not take advantage of their outdoor area - which also looked like fun. The food was great and we had excellent service

Great hotel stay at Julies Park Hotel and Café. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. Always nice to dine at our favorite restaurant in Door County (The English Inn).

15 minute wait for a reserved table, no problem on a holiday weekend. Server Katelyn was attentive and pleasant, knowledgeable on the menu. Well paced service. Seafood dishes creatively prepared. Nice wine and martini list. Attractive bar and dining room, both with fireplaces. Decorated well but a bit dark. Not too loud for conversation. In the summer try the outdoor... More

I had been here several years ago and enjoyed my visit, so when friends suggested this place for dinner, I jumped at the invitation. We didn't have reservations on a Saturday night, but we got in right away around 6 p.m. The place was about half full when we left. Our waitress took awhile to greet us, while we watched... More

Was surprised for my birthday for a long weekend in Door County. Driving by we were captivated by the knights and decided to try it. Best decision ever!! The food was superb, we both had the fillets and they melted in our mouths. The décor, the service, everything was first class. We were going to try another place the next... More

Went to the Inn and it was nearly empty - might have been early - Server was very nice and friendly and the menu looked great! But the meals were not up to par, Beef Wellington was very subpar and most of the meal tasted like it was old or defrosted... sad as I was so looking forward to some... More

We planned to have Thanksgiving dinner in this place. Reservation was 5.30 pm, but at 5.45 pm they were not even able to say how long it takes to get table as so many people were waiting for table before us. So we had to leave to get food for children. Unbelievable poor planning.
