The Sherwood Inn is still going strong after more than two hundred years. In a picturesque location at the foot of Skaneateles Lake and great food too! The Sherwood Inn is a nineteenth century landmark that has kept up with the times. On our most recent visit we were pleased with our light fare of gaspacho soup, shrimp cocktail, and... More

As part of the overnight room special, we had a $50 credit for the restaurant (we would have eaten there anyway). The food was good, well presented and served impeccably. The steak was butter knife tender and my wife's rack of lamb was succulent and cooked to perfection. My only criticism was with the Clams Casino appetizer, the clam was... More

Really nice bar area to warm up by the fire. Christmas trees all over. Several fireplaces. Menu looked very good, but I only had a salad, the Sherwood signature salad. It was good, not amazing but for 9$ I don't expect too much. If you are wandering around Skaneateles, definitely stop in and check it out. I plan on trying... More

First time here! I can see why people keep coming back to Sherwood! What a gem! The food was hearty and tasty. Service was average. It was a little noisy.

We love to go here w/ friends. The tavern atmosphere is warm and cozy during the winter. However, the portions have been scaled back considerably with a rise in prices. Food taste is still good.

The main course was well prepared, tastful and well presented. The cranberry sauce was exemplary. The service was very poor with forgotten drink orders, a lack of proper and necessary silverware and sporadic service at best. It appeared that the establishment was sorely underprepared to take on this service. And after all that the piece of pie was the smallest... More

We started the meal with soup - for my partner: butternut squash; for me: french onion gratinée. We both ordered the Yankee Pot Roast as the main, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The next morning, we descended to take part in breakfast. A full breakfast (with pastries and yogurt also available) was served. Delicious, although it took some time for the... More

Always a consistent and lovely experience at The Sherwood - whether in the Pub or Sunday brunch, or fine dining for dinner

The Sherwood Inn features seasonal menus rooted in Classic American fare. Sherwood Classic items such as the Yankee Pot Roast and Baked Scrod Christopher are available year round, while our chefs change other seasonal entree selections based on the market availability of the freshest seafood, finest steaks and chops, and freshest locally grown produce.
