Great Dinner in the Country!

We celebrated our Wedding Anniversary here a few weeks ago. It was recommended by the B & B we are staying at. So glad that we were sent here. Quaint little farm house in the country. The inside makes you feel like you are visitng your Grandmother's home, but the food is not your Grandmothers... read more

Excellent menu with great food. Seafood to steaks are all great. Service is flawless. Wine list has adequate listings for the menu with a reasonable price.

I enjoyed the unconventional layout and atmosphere in this place. It is conservative and yet strangely fancy. I might bring family and guests to such a place but with a few concerns. Any vegetarian guest would be limited to ordering side dishes or drinks. I don't mind a meat and potatoes meal myself, but I think I'm too picky to... More

I have mixed feelings about The Library. Was a little worried when we first walked in and the bar was directly in the front. Had to walk through the smoke to get to the tables. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the rest of the place. The service was very nice, and the ambiance was charming. The menu is fairly... More

You can always count on the steaks to be very good and the flavor is as good as Dallas. Also, their desserts are wonderful.

This is one of those places you want to be better than it is. Its fun to visit this converted house, and the menu is pretty good. The only thing is most of the meats are just really salty. I think their go to seasoning is loaded with sodium! They have not had a menu change in years so I... More

Recommended to go here for a business dinner and upon entering the restaurant, was highly impressed by the ambience. The appetizer of grilled shrimp, crab cakes and scallops was great. Followed up by a good salad and the swordfish and shrimp was really good. Would highly recommend anyone visiting Sherman to try this place!
