“The Sherwood Inn Pub Serves Good Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

The Sherwood Inn Pub features mellow wood paneling and a view of Skaneateles Lake across the street. My husband and I had a drink at a small table next to the bar. Crackers and cheese were available as appetizers next to the bar, and the atmosphere was unhurried and comfortable, just right after a long drive. For dinner we moved to another table with a lake view. The waitress gave us a choice of tables since we had arrived just before the busy dinner hours. Service was good, food was great! The Sherwood Salad was my husband's choice, paired with a soup of the day, Black Bean with Chicken. I enjoyed the Maryland Style Crab Cake with the Summer Seasonal Salad. The only very minor irritation was that the Crostini in the salad was a bit chewy. Otherwise, everything was presented and served very professionally. The greens were crisp and very fresh, the mozzarella was light, and the crab cake substantial and tasty. Our waiter frequently checked on us, and the entire staff was very attentive. Don't forget to stop if you are in the area!

“Great!”

The food and service for dinner was wonderful, try to book the porch if weather is nice. However, skip the breakfast......coffee and food were terrible.

“Excellent food and value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

Had lunch and it was excellent and a good value for what you received. Will not go away hungry. Service was excellent. Only negative is that it took 20-30 minutes after ordering to receive our food. Only ordered sandwiches and couldn't understand the hold up. It was 3:00 in the afternoon and not crowded. Sat in the screened room area which provides a great view of the lake across the street.

“Excellent food and tavern”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

This review is for the tavern, not the dining room or inn. The food was excellent. I had the Yankee pot roast and my wife had the open steak sandwich with sweet potato fries. We loved both meals. We were hungry after walking around town and taking a boat ride. We would definitely eat at the Sherwood again.

“Best restaurant in Skaneateles NY.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

Every course from lobster bisque to the salads, to the main course and always desserts. The seafood comes from Foley's in Boston. There is a selection of craft beers and wines. We eat here 2-3 times a year. See you next time .
