We come here a few times a year and are never disappointed. Their menu is always changing, but they still keep the favorites. We had a large party and the only thing I could have recommended was having another waiter/waitress on to help with our table. I hard the roasted red pepper bisque and it was delicious. For an entree... More

After spending a leisurely day shopping and a boat ride we ended the day with a fine meal at The Sherwood Inn. We arrived at 5:30 for an early relaxing meal in the Pub room. We would suggest a table away from the bar which can be a little noisy later in the evening. Our table was opposite the bar... More

Over the summer when we visited I was lamenting over the loss of their brown/pumpernickel bread, it was back last night! You can't imagine my surprise and happiness! Our waiter was wonderful and kept asking if I wanted more:) We enjoyed the Salmon Run Riesling, I had the French Onion Gratinee, warm, nutty, wonderful topped with stretch bread and melted... More

The Sherwood Inn is a lovely old Inn with rooms for a few travelers, but is better known for excellent fare in their Tavern and Dining Room. The menu is excellent with some typical dishes and some new ideas in dining. They have a good wine list and selections of draft beers. Their apple crisp with ice cream is outstanding.... More

This was probably our 5th or 6th visit to the Sherwood Inn. It is never a disappointment. We were there for dinner on a Sunday evening. The restaurant is always busy but handles a crowd well. The service is always efficient and friendly. The French onion soup was delicious, the Reuben sandwich was one of the best we've ever had... More

I have eaten at this restaurant many times. I have had enjoyable eating experiences in the past. Lately I have notices the food, although above average, is somewhat stagnant. Attention to detail is waning. The service has been a bit lacking lately, for example, I found ALL of the waitstaff in a side room chatting and had to interrupt to... More

The meal was delicious but their chocolate dessert was to die for. The place itself is beautiful. We were with a bus load and they were very accommodating and friendly.

We ate in the dining room for dinner and the food was fabulous. It's a bit pricey but the meal is worthy. The service was very good considering how busy they were.

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!
