Been coming here for over 20 years. The Sherwood never lets me down. Good food and service. Great local stop.

Went to breakfast with my girlfriend. She is very fussy but gave her meal the thumbs up. I had a roll with two friend eggs and a large tomato juice. Before we left I had to use the bathroom, as did my partner. To my glee it was spotless. I shared this with the manager. I go here for lunch... More

The service is slow and inattentive. The food is less then average at best. The only good thing I can say about this diner is; if your desperate for something to eat, they are open 24 hours a day.

Stopped by with some friends for lunch. The waiter was pleasant and food good with large portions. The ladies could only eat half the portion and brought the rest home. I would recommend.

Due to the close proximity to my hotel, my hosts treated me to breakfast and dinner at this diner. I really enjoyed the extensive menu and the food was great! The wait staff were all very friendly and (except during dinner) attentive to our table's needs. Can't go wrong here!

yes, its a diner. However, breakfast is great- lunch is great and dinner is great. We have eaten there for all meals and never disappointed. Mid week breakfast specials and dinner specials every night. The Chef's Salad and Turkey Bowl Salad are huge with the most amazing Italian dressing. Bread, cole slaw and macaroni salad are brought over before you... More

After not being here for quite a long time, we decided to go back to the Sherwood Diner for lunch. Put on the table before ordering, were pickles, macaroni salad, cole slaw and a basket with crackers, rolls and breadsticks. The specials, as usual, are more food than anyone could possibly eat. Soup or salad, entree, soda and dessert. The... More

I have never had a bad meal here. The lunch specials give us enough food for lunch and enough leftovers for dinner and lunch the next day. Our favorite waiter, Jimmy, is as alert as can be....as soon as the glass is 3/4 empty, he's there with a refill. He makes suggestions if asked and has never steered us wrong.... More

I was looking to surprise my hard working husband to dinner after work and had him meet me there. The food was bad and the waiter was worse. I ordered a salad and was given a salad made with iceberg lettuce. When I requested green lettuce the waiter snatched the bowl off the table and bought it back with the... More
