My wife and I just returned from dinner here. The ambiance was amazing and they had a great menu so we had very high hopes. The fiasco started when they lost our reservation. The service was very slow but we were very happy with the lobster bisque. Unfortunately the bisque was preempted when our main course was unexpectedly ready before... More

This was our eighth Thanksgiving day dinner and it was everybit as good as our first. Great food and exceptional service. We were early for our reservations but they were able to seat us (4 people) right away even though they were very busy. Went back on Friday and enjoyed some cocktails by the fireplace.

We dined at the Sherwood on a Saturday of "A Dickens Christmas" weekend. I didn't think this visit was quite up to par.

The service was friendly and efficient and... More

We had a wonderful breakfast and Saturday night dinner this past weekend. Sherwood Inn is located in the heart of the town. Beautiful spot.

Nice looking place, great location, average food, expensive prices (I don't mind paying high prices for great food... this isn't that place), and the bar... how do I say this nicely... not a very diverse place. The hostesses, bartenders and staff are pretentious and act as if they're doing you a favor by helping you. Not a very nice dinning... More

I ate lunch with my family today at this restaurant. The experience is usually average to good. Today I got the mushroom soup and prime rib open faced sandwich specials.....big mistake I have been suffering from systems of food poisoning all day......you may want to stay away from the "special"

we spend several weeks a year in u.s.a. And find tha t when restaurants serve better food they become a bit snotty. This hotel restaurant had good food, friendly service , a balanced wine list and we came away looking forward to a future visit. Parking is easy, on site behind the hotel.
