This is an odd place. We went there twice while in town. It's a dive bar that reeks of disinfectant. The beer is cold and the first bartender we had was excellent. The next day, not so much. The pool table is so out of...More

Located just off Main Street in Cooperstown, Sherman's is a great place to have a few beers, enjoy some popcorn, or have a burger/sandwich/wrap if you need something more substantial. Sherman's is particularly fun on Hall of Fame weekend, when first time visitors stop in...More

Visited this place twice in our trips to Cooperstown. It was a nice place to get a drink and have a seat while touring the town and off the main drag so less of a crowd. Service was fair but friendly, but the bourbon pours...More

We were pleasantly surprised by the food here. We stopped after visiting the Baseball Hall of Fame. It looked like it might be " just a bar." We looked at the menu and decided to order dinner - nothing fancy - chicken fingers, buffalo chicken...More

By day Sherman's Tavern is a laid back, easy going atmosphere perfect for either grabbing a quick drink and a bite while seeing the sights, or hanging out w/ friends and watching the games on our array of flat screens. By night we're a lively and happening night scene with pool league on Tue, Karaoke Wed, and always a busy weekend crowd. Great place for visitors and locals to mesh.
