Stopped in tentatively for a late lunch/early dinner ~5p on a trip between Cincinati and Indianapolis. We were the only people there under 60 yrs old and although the architecture and decor were interesting, I wondered if we'd made a mistake - but that could not have been further from the truth! German food was terrific, portions large, and staff... More

The location is in downtown Batesville. The food was old style German like and was very good. We were served fried biscuits and apple butter. The taste was great on the biscuits alone. My wife had the half and half soup and chicken salad sandwich. She said the soup was very good. The kids had chicken fingers and corn dog... More

I am reviewing the Sherman House Hotel. This is an institution in Batesville, IN, and for 39 years we've driven past on our way from Chgo to Cinti wanting to stop. We are glad we finally did! This hotel might not be for those who only like franchise lodging as it is old enough to feel like Gen. Sherman could... More

We live in Batesville and normally don't think of going here. We heard there is a chance they could be closing so my mother-in-law decided maybe we should go there for our birthday dinner. The service was great and the food was very good. They are offering 2 for $25 which was a pretty good deal but it seemed like... More

We were driving from Kentucky to Mt. Rushmore. About three hours into our trip, we saw billboard on I-74 for Shermen House. Well worth the stop. We try to avoid the chain eateries and this one proved to be a good choice. Very friendly staff and good food. It's about five minutes off the highway in beautiful little city of... More

Went to this restaurant 2 times, ate their steak two times. Good waitress services, short waiting time. If you looking for a quiet and relax restaurant for lunch or dinner, try this.

First off, I love these historic inns that have been renovated. It shows people care about history. Secondly, this place has draught beer, which is a major plus. I had the New York Strip, which was cooked medium-rare to perfection. The chicken gravy on my mashed potatoes was not too heavy and the salad dressing (this place has a salad... More

I couldn't be happier with the service, food and atmosphere. The restaurant representative, Teresa, was great to work with. She made a mini menu for each of our 30 guest that was personalized with the bride and grooms name as well. They had linen's on the table along with a sash the color of the wedding. We were treated the... More

I've always wanted to have dinner at the Sherman House. I knew the wife's chef. The food was good but the service was even better-had a wonderful waitress.
