Description: Set in a beautifully restored 1870s building, on the courthouse square in historic downtown Sherman, Fulbelli's has a nostalgia that is quite romantic and comfortable. With original metal tile ceilings and period antiques throughout, the venue as a whole is welcoming. Step into the piano lounge and enjoy live music while relaxing in an overstuffed chair by the fireplace or take in downtown on one of our balconies.

“60th bday - terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

While the service was good, the food was terrible. We went for my mom's 60th bday & were terribly disappointed. Despite several attempts, the steaks were not cooked as ordered & the sides were dismal. With a $300+ tab, one expects more. Sadly, if I desire a steak dinner, I will have to remain in McKinney or Dallas... Or possibly even cook it at home. Texoma deserves better.

“What a great place!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Nestled away in downtown Sherman is a wonderful little restaurant that shouldn't be missed. It gets 5 stars from me all across the board and being a retired chef this is hard to get. Being in a repurposed older building gives it great charm, the service was top notch, and the food was fantastic. And the Chef is out visiting the tables to make sure everything is to the guest liking. Always a good sign. If you don't live in the area it is worth the drive for a fun adventure. You won't be dissapointed.

“Fresh Seafood in Sherman Is possible!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

We dined New Years Eve at this, locally owned and operated family business and could not have been happier with our choice. We started the evening in the piano bar where we enjoyed a cocktail and calamari. Fresh and along with the calamari where additional bits of lemon, jalapeño, and pickle each on their own and fun to eat. The Mrs. ordered the special pork dish that was more tender meat than a family of four could have eaten along with a shitake risotto that she loved. I had the halibut with shrimp and crab atop and it is was fresh and delicious. We split a slice of their chocolate cake and had plenty to take home and share again another night. We enjoy the friendliness of the owners and the attentive service by the staff. Downtown Sherman is not known as a go to spot to eat quality food, but it is going to be! Lunches are great too and if you're looking for a "real" dining restaurant in Sherman, this is it.

“Fantastic Date Night Near Lake Texoma”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

My husband and I were looking for an upscale "date night" restaurant and Fulbelli's met all of our expectations with great food, ambiance, service and location. We started off with an order of crab cakes. They were full of crab meat and had a great flavor. My husband ordered the filet mignon and I had the shrimp and grits. Both were fantastic. We both thought the steak was the best we had ever had. For dessert, we had the cheesecake and carrot cake and they were both outstanding. The carrot cake is enough to share. Everything is made right there so the quality of the food is top notch. The owners, Heather and TJ, are both friendly and made us feel so welcome. I might also add that there is a really cozy bar area with a fireplace and piano bar for before dinner while waiting on friends or for an after dinner drink.
