“THE BEST FRIED WALLEYE HANDS DOWN”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

But there are better reasons to love this place. Charming setting, sweet, attentive waitstaff, great burgers and salads and one of the most charming, delightful Northwoods settings for a restaurant. We only wished our visit was longer so we could return.

“Decent food, horrible service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

We were fortunate to sit in the back outside deck. It was a beautiful MN evening. Having said that, we were sitting out there a long time due to the extremely slow service. Our waitress tried to be friendly, but she came across rude. I cannot recommend this restaurant, despite the nice back deck.

“Best ribs in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

Excellent service, friendly manager, and our food was delivered quickly. I had the ribs and my girlfriend had the walleye, and bot where quite could. Baked beans could use some work, but now I'm just nit picking!

“Expected better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

The best thing about Sherwood Forest in the atmosphere. Great for drinks inside, or out on the deck. The chocolate cake is tasty and great to share, but the rest of the food is just okay. The service is so-so. If it weren't for the wonderful building and grounds, it wouldn't be worth the stop.
