Sherwood is over rated

Bar tenders were not very friendly and our dinners were just okay. Definitely not worth the hype or price.

This is the third, and last bad meal we will have at the Sherwood. I had the pork chop dinner special which was raw, not rare. raw. Ate some of it that wasn't quite so raw, while waiting for the waitress. When she returned she asked why I didn't tell her sooner, and I explained that I would have, but... More

Working with Meredith, event coordinator for The Sherwood was an exceptional experience, as planning and execution of my son's Rehearsal Dinner moved forward. A custom menu for our 78 people dinner (close family and wedding party) with cocktail hour was decided on, as the chef's willingness to adapt and revise his traditional fare with our own ideas of menu items...

The food was Ok, We attended a wedding rehearsal dinner. One of the items was veal. It could have been pork, chicken or beef. It was ok but not worth a mention. I would not go there if I had a choice.

I always go here for cocktails when I am in the area. One of the place we like to go because of the real wood burning fireplaces. Sometimes it is a hit or miss with the burning fireplace. The one in the bar side is not always on. The one in the lounge area is, but you can't see it... More

My husband and I ate here this past weekend, early on Saturday night. We have been here MANY times through the years. It has been better on previous visits than this time. My husband ordered the fish special, halibut in a lemon butter with capers. He said it had no butter sauce at all only two capers…totally bland and flavorless.... More

Very nice room #18 with gas fireplace and king bed. Beautifully decorated for Christmas as we were there on the 28th of December. The only problem was the jetted bathtub. Didn't have enough hot water in the evening nor in the morning to have even a warm bath to fill the tub to use the Jets and the hotel had... More
