The food was excellent, the waitress had such a great sense of humor. There were four couples in our group and we love to laugh and have a fun time. I think we were too giggly, but the staff was great about it and everyone's food selection was terrific.

The Sherwood in Bar is a reliable Skaneateles dining experience. Friday night raw bar is always fun. Last night had a great cup of gumbo. The rest of the meal was good but nothing to rave about. Service is always excellent!

The view of the lake is what can make it or break it. The food is another matter altogether. The ultimate test for me is calamari. If it is cooked properly, then I usually have more to look forward to. Unfortunately, mine was a mouthful of oil and grease the moment I bit into it. Not to be outdone by... More

My wife and I stayed at the Sherwood Inn for our 18th anniversary. The dinner my wife ordered was the chef specialty of Pecan Salmon. The presentation was superb and the flavor amazing. I ordered the special with Mahi Mahi on risotto and sautéed spinach. Our waitress Alicia was attentive, friendly and very fun to talk with (despite the restaurant... More

Located across the street from Skaneateles Lake, this restaurant offers beautiful views from the dining area! I have dined in both parts and always have a great experience! My favorite is the French Onion Soup and this place will always make it perfect!

We visit quite frequently as it is always a good meal. They have a nice tavern menu and more expensive menu so you can decided how you want your meal. Sometimes its a simple cheese burger ($8-$10) that is excellent and other times a filet mignon ($28). Pot roast is excellent too. It is a nice atmosphere right across from... More

Food was just OK, had the special prime rib. Came out cold and dry, like last weeks leftover. Waitress took it back and brought another cut. Much better, but damage was done. Kitchen should have never plated the first piece, shows a lack of quality control. View was nice, overlooked the park and lake
