A delightful night and morning after.

Dined on a Thursday for our anniversary and ate perfectly cooked and presented seafood along with a half priced bottle of wine. Morning breakfast buffet continually refreshed.

We visited this Inn and taven while staying in Skaneateles for four days last December. The food hit the spot. Love the Sherwood Salad. Good select of draught beers and wines. Perhaps the biggest wone pour in town! Fire in the fireplace and an old time feelinf makes this place a worthwhile stop.

The Sherwood Inn has classic American food that is satisfying and very reasonable. We have eaten in the tavern three times and it's a big bonus when we get seated at the window overlooking the lake. The atmosphere here is the best...traditional and charming.

My husband and I decided to go here for our first night at the lake. We at on the tavern side. At first we were skeptical because we waited for 5 to 10 minutes after being seated for some one to come over. However, when we said something and our waitress came over genuinely apoplectic and took care of us... More

I love it here. I just like to stop and enjoy the bar for a few minutes, enjoy lunch, excellent! I've stayed here too. It's a must stop in town just cause it's part of the history of Skaneateles. Nice little gift area where I always find something. Pleasant front desk.

We ate lunch at the Sherwood Inn. I ordered the pot roast with vegetables and my husband had the Reuben. Both were delicious. The waitress was very friendly and helpful in answering our questions about the area. We sat at a table at the window where we could look out at the lake.

Having passed through Skaneateles on many occasions I had admired this inn and hoped to be able to take the time to enjoy a meal there at some point. An anniversary stay in the area afforded that opportunity and I happily made dinner reservations well in advance of our trip. I had always envied the folks sitting at the window... More

We were staying at the Mirbeau Inn & Spa for our wedding anniversary and decided to try a place in town and chose the Sherwood. We made reservations for the front porch which overlooks the lake. The tavern has live music on weekends from 4-7. The breads and some deserts are from the Patisserie which are fantastic. I tried the... More

What a lovely Brunch we had -- came for a bridal shower. Unfortunately we were in an interior room and it was quite dark. I suggest making sure you can get a window table if you come for lunch -- fabulous view of Skaneateles Lake!! Brunch had a nice array of muffins, but the brown sugar rolls from a pan... More
