Constructed in 1892, the Historic Sheridan Inn gave adventurous travelers a taste of Eastern luxury in the West. Through the years, the Inn has remained a hub of activity, offering elegant New Year's Eve balls and the town's first electric lights. Buffalo Bill Cody sat on the front porch of the Inn auditioning acts to join the "Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show." The Inn is on the National Register of Historic Places. In October 2013, Bob and Dana Townsend became the newest owners of the Inn, bringing 21st century luxury to the 19th century building. The Inn is now open for overnight stays, banquets and tours. Lunch and dinner are also served in the Open Range Restaurant.

Never had a bad meal out if the 10+ times I have been there. The salmon is my favorite dish. Avoid the brisket, it is not tender and has way more fat than I prefer in it. Be sure to look around the hotel while there.

Service was personable; food delightful. The porch makes one want to sit and relax a spell. It is located across the street from a fun bar called Rails Brews and Cues. Our favorite now, though one has tO stop in the over 100 year old Mint Bar on the main street of Sheridan only a few block from the Sheridan... More

Stopped in for a drink at the saloon mid afternoon and was so impressed that we decided to come back for dinner. We were not disappointed! Food was amazing and very reasonably priced.

Chose this hotel as a key destination on a 10-day western trip. Expensive, but it's unique and we enjoyed our stay. Weather was warm but the breeze on the big front porch made it comfortable enough for a domino game both pre- and post-dinner. The "Broncho Billy" room (yes, that's the way they spelled 'bronco') was comfortable; good bed, nice... More

I had the steak salad with blue cheese, it was delicious. Daughter had pulled chicken rice soup and salad, soup was fantastic and the Apple vinaigrette was a highlight! Husband had a burger and fries, he was well satisfied with the taste and portion. Service great, atmosphere clean and relaxing. Price was fair...if ever again in town, this is in... More

Wonderfully renovated in the 19th century style. The only disappointment was the long wait in the restaurant for dinner, which could be excused as they were very busy, but the cold potatoes on my plate and missing mushrooms on my friends with only a token apology could not.

The Sheridan Inn was opened in 1893 and has the original bar and many other original pieces. Buffalo Bill was part owner. Don't miss this fabulous historical treasure!! You can stay in the restored rooms as travelers did in the late 1800's. Within the inn is the Open Range Restaurant, with delicious food and good service.
