Ate at the Restaurant right before Christmas while visiting the small town of Skaneateles, NY for a holiday getaway and stayed at a nearby hotel.
We had a 6pm reservation, but showed up early at 5pm and were seated immediately, despite the restaurant being fairly full (only a few empty tables). The restaurant is very large and takes up practically the entire lobby of the Sherwood Inn. The ambiance is quite charming and was full of locals and tourists. There was a man dressed as Santa who walked around the restaurant, paying special visits to the tables with children. A couple a few tables away got engaged during our meal and elicited applause from the surrounding diners.
Our waiter Bob was very professional and friendly. The food itself was plentiful. The sourdough baguette and rye bread brought to the table wasn't my favorite and the house salad was very basic. But the prime rib and french onion soup was very good and the orzo pasta in pumpkin cream sauce with wild mushrooms, squash and brussels sprouts was DELICIOUS!!
A nice restaurant which we would probably visit again if we were in the area.
