We met our daughter and granddaughter there for breakfast for the first time since they re-opened. We all had omelets and all agreed that they were excellent tasting and very fluffy. The coffee was delicious. Omelets are served with hash browns but no bread. I would have preferred toast. They do not offer a kids breakfast menu. Our granddaughter had...

Lot of signs about renovation, but should have kept "kitschy" Bavarian theme. Contemporary crystal lightening fixtures and fireplace in the lobby just don't jive with "Heidi" theme. Menu is nothing special, was hoping salad bar and fried biscuits were still served, but alas they were not. They have also changed their name to "The Sherman" which I guess alludes that...

The service was prompt and efficient. They are trying to impress with good service. But that ends there. $10.00 drinks, $33.00 entrées and everything ala carte. Some entrées were cheaper. I thought my Halibut was chewy and dry. Wasn't flaky. The scallop dish was small and again dry and a some (3 out of four small scallops) were chewy. Get...

The Sherman House has reopened under the new name The Sherman. After a fantastic renovation The Sherman has reopened. However, like any restaurant that is starting or in this case starting over, problems do exist. The food was very tasty but in my opinion the menu was narrow in scope.

We realize The Sherman restaurant has recently reopened...as such, we must give them some leeway in this review. Our recent visit was pleasant, but certainly not professional. The service was prompt and pleasant, but also downright amateurish. Our waitress had almost no knowledge of either fare nor drinks...and did not even attempt to find basic details for us. Our meals...

This is one of the first evenings that the newly remodeled Sherman House, now "The Sherman" was open for dinner. The place looks just beautiful, the dining and bar areas very inviting. The new staff is very friendly and are eager to serve. I went with my daughter and son in law; my daughter had a roast pork that was...

After our last visit, I understand the restaurant has closed. Sorry to hear this. Was one of favorite go to restaurant for German food. Hopefully it will reopen in future with more German dishes. Atmosphere was very Bavarian. Owners seemed to be German. They friendly and outgoing.
