Great spot, great view, good food

After five of us spent a chilly morning on the Skaneateles Mail Boat ride (fun, but that's another review), we took our chances that the Inn could accommodate us for lunch at 1 pm without reservations. We also asked for a table near the front windows, as one in our party was visually impaired and a... read more

We had breakfast , lunch, and drinks here. The food was very good and reasonable in price. The view of the lake is great and the place was full of people .... other restaurants were empty for lunch. The breakfast was "free" as a part of the room and far more extensive that most free breakfasts... linen table cloths.. great... More

We stayed at this hotel upon the recommendation that it was a three star hotel by Priceline. It was not even close.The property itself is in run down condition. The windows have peeling paint (inside and out), the carpets are dirty and worn, the elevator has seen better days (like in the 1950's), and the front entrance way is cluttered... More

Charming and bustling hotel right across the street from the hotel. Large bar and lounge to relax in before having dinner on the porch overlooking the lake. Very attentive service and with well prepared selection of entrees....can't go wrong here.

Loud, overcrowded fair food at best. Don't know what all the attraction is about. Seems like a real favorite spot for locals

I was expecting a fine dining experience and the waitress did attend to our needs by refilling our water and bread, but the food was underwhelming. My Yankee Pot Roast was not cooked all the way through. The Tavern Burger was average for the price. The atmosphere is nice.

I was on a bus trip with senior citizens. The food was delicious especially the dessert which was like a rich chocolate mouse type slice with a dollop of whip cream. We had a choice of chicken or fish of which I chose chicken with asparagus and rice pilaf. It all had good flavor. I also like the little shop... More

Classy restaurant right in the heart of the town. My appetizer of asparagus gallete was very interesting and tasty, combining grilled asparagus with seasoned puff pastry. Their grilled salmon was wild, and served beautifully. You will thoroughly enjoy the meal! Make reservations in advance or expect to wait for a table.

After longingly hoping to stay at the Sherwood Inn sometime, on our annual trip through Skaneateles, we finally at least ate at the Inn. To our surprise on a Monday evening, they were not taking any more reservations for dinner when we called but said we could stop by and see if a table opened up. The hostess was very... More
