“Wedding Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

We were here for a wedding on May 5. I have to admit, I'm always a little bit worried about how the food will be at a wedding. Well, the Sherwood Inn has the best wedding meal I've ever eaten (and that's saying something). Everything was cooked to order and my steak was really very good. It is the first time I've ever come close to eating everything on my plate for a main course. Well done, Sherwood Inn, well done.

“Ok casual food in a great looking restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

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.

“Skaneateles favorite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

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.

“Local Flavor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

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.

“Nice view, good food, nice setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

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 seared scallops, I tasted one, and they were good too. We get there a couple of times a year, and are never disappointed.
