“Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

You feel as if you're in a fine dining establishment here.
My beet salad was good, but beets slightly undercooked.
Apple crumble w/ice cream, was delish, but should have been warmer.
Otherwise, food was very good.

One of the most beautiful and romantic inns in Muskoka. Great for dining alone, an extended stay, and/or perfect for weddings.

“Stuffy and overrated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2012

Fortunately, many more restaurants have become established in the Muskoka area so that Sherwood is no longer the only choice for fine dining.

“Skip the restaurant and eat in the lounge”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2012

Both the restaurant and lounge menus were available in the lounge which has a much cozier and casual atmosphere. Pricing is a little on the high side, but the quality is excellent.

Esa P, General Manager at Sherwood Inn, responded to this review, March 10, 2012
Thank you for your recent review for dining at our Lounge.
The dining room our Vintage room which is our winter dining room and fill out faster with full weekend occupancies and it oiffers the full more extensive menu versus the lounges casual menu.
In the Summer our dining room reverts to the Verandah room with all around views of the lake and the shoreline of Lake Joseph.
I was delighted to read that you found our food excellent and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Sherwood Inn in the near future.

Best Regards

Esa Paltanen
General Manager
