Had very basic food because of dietary restrictions. But the space is great and the food I ate was good but not great. I had the wedge salad and it wasn't anything that was expecting. Plus it was over dressed, making it limp and mushy.

The Sherwood Inn is a favorite in this quaint town. Food is consistently good along wit the service. Nice little bar or intimate seating with a view of the lake. Reservations recommended especially on weekends and/or holidays.

Food is terrific, service can be slow and the tavern can be noisy, but the view is awesome on a beautiful day. Try the trout if it is on the menu, otherwise any other seafood dish.

We had dinner on a Saturday night. Sat out on the porch, which has full length windows, giving a nice view over the lake. It was frozen over, and there were people out ice fishing or just walking around. Lobster b1sque was very tasty. I had Yankee pot roast, a great comfort item on a cold night. My wife had... More

We really enjoy the ride out to Skaneatlas for a Bloody Mary and the view, and unfortunately Sherwood is the optimum place for the view, however in 30 years nothing has changed on the menu with exception of the prices, which are too low for the view, Food choices are way below the expectation of the location and ability of...

We have made periodic visits over several years and have always loved this spot. Most recent visit was up to standards. Our waitress, Katie, was pleasant and efficient. The wine and beer selections are good. Our lunch salads, the Sherwood and a duck confit special, were delicious. The roasted red peppers and bacon on the Sherwood(often throw away items on... More

Our server Meghan was very attentive and very friendly. She knew her wines and made good suggestions. I could... More

The Sherwood Inn is a wonderful place for a drink or a meal in Skaneateles. The home made chips aren't to be missed - topped with bleu cheese and bacon! The bar is cozy and friendly, and the food overall is quite delicious. A scenic view of the lake from most tables. I miss it just writing this review!

The Sherwood Inn sits on the North end of Skaneateles Lake and offers some incredible views of the water with fabulous dining options. I prefer to sit on the porch side of the Tavern. The Tavern has a great menu with prices that are not out of the moderate range. The staff is always very outgoing and helpful especially with... More

We ate lunch at the Sherwood Inn on a Sunday, and were seated in the tavern side. The tables are very close together and the wait staff seemed to have difficulty making their way through the tables and reaching each diner. It was very loud, with the television in the bar area blaring far too loud. Our service was average,... More
