    We have eaten at the Sherwood over the past 20 years but we’re very disappointed in our meal . It was to be an anniversary dinner but by the time the meal was served it was well after an hour. The filet was cold, and unfortunately the vegetables were rock hard. We have had better and were highly disappointed.

    Bland food. Apparently the chef hasn’t tasted anything. Disappointed with the dining experience based on so many positive reviews. My husband had the filet mignon and enjoyed it, the portion was very small. We ordered the flourless chocolate cake for dessert which was hard as a rock. I wouldn’t recommend, this is not fine dining.

    We enjoyed our meal. The only thing that was a concern- we were there at 4:30 and there were plenty of available tables, we were seated next to s party of 12 people. With COVID on the rise in Onondaga county I would like to have been separated a little more

    I have dined at the Sherwood Inn several times over the years and it can be a variable experience. This was an anniversary dinner. We were seated promptly and the atmosphere, decor and ambiance are always wonderful. Appetizers (blue cheese nachos for her and shrimp cocktail for me) were delicious. My Ceasar salad and her soup were also very good. When the main courses arrived her scallops were perfect but my filet mignon was very overcooked. They apologetically took it back and, after a considerable wait, the second attempt was excellent. Her coffee ice cream sundae was extremely good but my flourless chocolate cake was nothing to write home about. When the bill came I was surprised that there was no accomodation of any kind for the steak (discount, free dessert, etc.). That was disappointing for a restaurant of this caliber whose service was otherwise impeccable.

    The way an establishment reacts to a minor oversight is a true measure of great or lackluster dedication to the customer. The Sherwood Inn was Great! We arrived on a busy Saturday evening and stood for just a moment at the hostess stand who was apparently seating another party. A manager came over from the front desk and sat us immediately. Unfortunately it appeared that no one had notified the server that we had been seated, hey it happens. After 20 minutes I went back to the manager who sat us to let her know our server had not yet come to our table. She offered a sincere apology, took our drink order and let’s us know our server would be right there, and she was. Her name is Heather and she did a wonderful job to make sure we were well cared for throughout dinner. My wife ordered a glass of wine and Heather pointed out that they were offering a local Riesling and a favorite of my wife’s Konstantin Frank. For first course I enjoyed the soup du jour, spilt pea soup and my wife had the small house salad. Appetizers were Dynamite Calamari and Maryland Crab Cakes. Entrees were the Prime rib and the George’s Bank scallops. Desert was crème brûlée and a three berry tart. Every course was prepared perfectly and timing to table was excellent. We were completely satisfied with food, atmosphere and service and was pleasantly surprised when presented with the check that the manager had deducted a round of drinks and one of the appetizers. Certainly was not necessary but appreciated. We made sure to leave Heather a tip reflective of what the total bill would have been. Will be back again.

    We had a great experience at The Sherwood Inn. I had a brief issue with getting food that contained mushrooms despite telling the server I have a fatal allergy to mushrooms. I had my epipen with me, and fortunately, I didn't ingest it, but that was a little troubling. Other than that, everything was great.

    I was at the Sherwood Inn on Tuesday night and was extremely unhappy with my meal. I ordered the scrod and it was so small the rice was cold as were the veggies. It was a special occasion and I was so disappointed. The dessert because I wanted something that was good wasn't much better. I ordered the tart the crust was to thick and very done.

    This was my first time at the Sherwood Inn at the recommendation of my Aunt/Uncle. They are regulars and go there weekly. We were celebrating my Aunt's 85th birthday. They were very accommodating and giving us a seat at the window so we had a view of the lake. The ambiance was perfect! I can image that it is very lovely at night as well. We went for Saturday lunch. Food was above average.

    They were out of 1/2 the items on menu. We were not told until we were ordering. Very dim lighting. Couldn’t see menu well. Had Reuben. It was horrible. Asked for potatoes rather than German pot salad. They put them atop my Reuben. Who would do that. Told changing menu over so that’s why they were out of items. Bad experience for people with us on first visit.
