I recently had the chance to meet a couple business associates at the Library Bar and Grill outside Sherman, Texas. Excellent friendly service and most accommodating. They provided a quiet out of the way table so we could talk and tended to our needs without interfering. Excellent lamb chops, ribeyes and Woodford Reserve. Top shelf in Sherman.

First off we were "first timers" our server Amanda was very pleasant. After seeing reviews on different sites I decided t tey it for out. I was not disappointed at all, we will be going back. The food was delicious everyone is friendly and it is the local hole in the wall that's a "Gem".

This is a great little restaurant- great staff and the food was phenomenal. Great nightly specials- I had blue crab stuffed shrimp over cheese grits and it was as good if not better than meals I've had in better known restaurants and in much bigger cities! A definite to go spot for me when I'm in town!

The place is really cute. It's a converted house and gardens. The portions are not huge, but really good. We thought a couple more servers would have solved the issue with service. We will give them another try.

Neat "off the beaten path" restaurant with a great steak. We like to try unique places instead of chains and this place didn't disappoint.

I've eaten here many times and I've enjoyed each visit. Food is very good and service is good. Quaint place with some character. I've especially enjoyed the prime rib and steaks. It's a bit of the beaten path but always good. Enjoy!

I came in expecting a Del Frisco's based on world of mouth reviews. What I got was a fairly good experience, but not what I had in my mind. Inside, it's a house, and seating felt more like a sports bar on one side with the open bar and 2 large TVs and a Cracker Barrel on the other with... More

Everything started great - immediate service, good Crab Cake appetizer and salads. We were both excited to see Sockeye Salmon on the menu, and both ordered it. The problem was, it was NOT Sockeye. We have fished and eaten Sockeye salmon in Alaska multiple times. It is a fact that Sockeye salmon is always RED. This was, most definitely, pink... More
