We enjoyed a wonderful lunch here yesterday. It is a quiet atmosphere and has lovely decor. My husband had the salmon and found it delicious. I had the Lobster Salad Croissant and enjoyed it as well. There is a restful view of the lake from the dining room windows.

While visiting our nephew in Skaneateles, we had dinner at the Sherwood Inn. We ate in the tavern side at the end of the lunch time crowd. The tavern was not very crowded when we arrived and we were seated in a timely manner. We ordered off of the lunch menu which was not extensive but had a nice variety... More

We had dinner here Saturday evening at a table overlooking the Lake. The lobby was crowded with diners waiting to be seated and children running about. We were apprehensive. But once inside the main dining room, things got calmer and quieter. Our waitress was attentive and clearly enjoyed what she does. She served us with care and attention. The food... More

For lunch, dinner, drinks this is the place to go. The Sherwood has been a staple in Skaneateles for 100 years and it´s lovely decor is worth experiencing as well as it´s excellent menu. A bit pricey, it is well worth it!

The Sherwood is a gem in the quaint town of Skaneateles. It is warm and inviting to visitors and locals alike. Choose from the dining room or tavern, and be treated with great service and great food. Not only will you enjoy the food at the Sherwood, but the atmosphere cannot be beat for enjoyable and relaxing conversation.

The Sherwood Inn has two restaurants. This review is for The Tavern. This is a lovely space with one long window overlooking Genesee Street and Skaneateles Lake. Very reasonably priced and very popular. On a busy Tuesday afternoon in mid July, we waited at the bar for a table. Very friendly service. Nice assortment of craft beer. We had the... More

We go there on a regular basis as well as taking company. The menu has a great mix so you chose from expensive and less expensive at any one time. I love to have quiche when there for lunch. Prime Rib, pot roast as well as Burgers are all good. Breads are always fresh. Drinks are priced reasonably. Service is... More

This is our usual Friday or Saturday night restaurant when we want prime rib. One of the benefits of dining with small children is going early when they still have the best pieces of prime rib. We have dinned there later in the evening and often gotten pieces that should probably not have been served or were so small, they... More

Enjoyed dinner with the family (2 couples). Sat in a booth facing the lake. Beautiful views! We tried the Margherita Pizza, Open Faced Steak Sandwich, Sherwood Reuben and the Tavern Burger. All were well prepared to our request. Everything was delicious. I felt the prices were reasonable.
