4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

part of the Inn, the restaurant is one of the "better" restaurants in town. A bit on the expensive side for what you receive in our HO...Be aware that the Inn is "affiliated" with a great number of the other restaurants and business in town, which gives the whole place a "Disney" quality, which you may or maynot like.

The restaurant is in a large historic Inn across from the lake. We dined late and they were out of the prime rib special. But that ended up allowing us to sample other menu items. I had a pan seared salmon with maple pecan glaze and my date had filet mignon. Both were perfectly cooked and fantastic tasting. Perfect food,... More

Ate here for a recent anniversary. Was seated on the front porch--which I'd recommend--with a beautiful view of the lake and a wedding in the next room. Great service, delicious food, excellent deserts.

We went there last night. I made an 8pm reservation. We arrived at 8 and checked in with the hostess. She could not find my name and wrote it down and said it would be 20-25 minutes. I looked at her and said that is a long wait for having a reservation. She ignored me. So we went to the... More

Each year when we visit Skaneateles we must have lunch on the porch at the Sherwood Inn., work up an appetite by walking the village streets lined with great shops. Across the street from the Inn is the beautiful Skaneateles Lake. The lunch menu doesn't change much year to year. Two of us had the wild caught salmon . The... More

However, for us, it's on the pricey side of things. The place is elegant, maybe if were dinner there was more attractiveness. But the kids liked the food, as well as we did. They are kid-friendly considering the old-style. Then, after the meal, the place is filled with spots to take nice souvenir photos. Parking is definitely no problem.

My husband and I reserved a table on the porch for our anniversary dinner and were seated promptly where we could enjoy a view of the park and the lake across the street. This was our first visit to the Sherwood Inn and we both started with a cup of rich and delicious French onion soup au gratin. It was... More
