We went this evening for dinner with friends. They first serve you with little pastry donut type with fresh homemade applebutter for dipping. Oh my goodness they are wonderful. We started with the appetizer platter that had potato pancakes, fried pickles and sauerkraut balls. That was amazing. The best sauerkraut balls ever. I ordered the beer battered cod sandwich with...

The Sherman House is something of an institution in Batesville. We stopped here for a working business breakfast - it is a convenient place to meet halfway between Indianapolis and Cincinnati. The restaurant itself is dark and uncomfortable. The tables reminded me of a school cafeteria, and they were not set. The food was average. The omelet I had tasted... More

Just off I-74, between Indianapolis and Cincinnati, in downtown Batesville, is the Sherman House Restaurant and Inn. I was staying in the area on business and asked the front desk manager at my hotel (Hampton Inn) for a dinner recommendation and she suggested I check out the Sherman House ... it was a great suggestion. I got there at 8PM,... More

We spent part of our honeymoon here and it was great. Very sweet romantic atmosphere. Especially if you like history. Want to go back for an anniversary

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
