We prefer to eat in the tavern or on the porch. Our favorite is the pecan salmon in summer and the Yankee pot roast in cooler months. A meal at the Sherwood won't be the best meal you've ever had but the kitchen performs well consistently and the atmosphere and view of the lake are worth it. Also nice in... More

We had two lunches at the Sherwood, sitting in the front rooms with a great view of the lake. The crab stuffed sole special was very good, and the small spinach salad with salmon makes a very nice, filling meal. The staff were friendly, courteous, professional and attentive - we both remarked on the quality of the wait staff. The... More

Our experience at this restaurant has always been very good. This trip was no different. The extensive menu offers apps, salads, seafood, steaks, and many other options. If you are not sure about an entree, ask your wait staff. My wife wanted a seafood dish but did not want one of the included items. The chef had no problem meeting... More

Once a year for the past three we are in Skaneatles and have visited The Sherwood for lunch. This year wasn't as nice as first two. My asparagus quiche was one of the specials. Their quiche is large have to give them that but the asparagus was very woody and I found it inedible. There were three of us who... More

The food was fairly average and less inspiring for the high price point. The fish tasted a little off - if I'm being honest I think they could do with a menu refresh and edit it down significantly. I love the ambiance - dark and cozy tavern - but the food needs a bit of TLC. We went with a... More

The Sherwood Inn is one of my favorite restaurants. The food is always good and reasonably priced and the menu is varied - there is something for everyone. I am a huge fan of their dynamite calamari which just melts in your mouth. Everything I have tried on their menu is delicious. I have never been disappointed. Do yourself a... More

Stayed at the nearby Arbor House Inn, which has been taken over by the Sherwood Inn. Had several buffet breakfasts at the Sherwood which were better than most, but not the best I have ever had. Six of us had dinner there one evening and all of the dishes were consistently very good. Skaneateles is a wonderful village to explore... More

The setting Is very nice with nice chairs and if sitting on the patio or porch a beautiful view of the water. The service was good and attentive and the menue was short and basic but a lot of drink and wine offerings. We had the seafood wraps which were good but very small and pricey for what you got...
