    The meal was good, but I would have to say that it could have been better. I don't normally leave a review. However, this time, I feel compelled to. The bartender was excellent, as was our waiter, the green beans were very under cooked, and the lamp chop was cooked perfectly, but was so small I could only get about three bites of meat, the rest....bone! The ambiance was not good. The lights were so bright we almost had to put on sunglasses, lol. We asked our waiter if they could dim the lights, and when they did, it made all the difference. All in all, the experience was good, wood recommend this place.

    Being seated near the kitchen entry offered a noisier experience, otherwise we enjoyed every aspect of our meal. Presentation, taste, speed of service were all impeccable. Right after booking the reservation on OpenTable, the restaurant called me to confirm the special occasion and name of birthday guest: the personalized menus with the birthday greeting was a nice touch. This is a terrific local dining option!

    We took advantage of the Elk Grove, CA Restaurant Week special 3-course dinner offering. I has the salmon and my husband had the stuffed chicken breast. The dinner included your choice of a “starter” (appetizer), a soup or salad, and a main entree. The servings were substantial and we didn’t have room for dessert. As always, Sheldon Inn did a great job and we’ll definitely be back soon for another wonderful meal.

    New Years Meal. Odd smell when you walk into the place. Seems to dissipate after being there a while. The crab cakes on the New Years menu was okay. The steak and lobster was delicious, as was the beet salad. Definitely better with the regular menu in the summer when you can sit outside.

    Review of Thanksgiving meal - service: good - food: mediocre- butternut squash soup was not hot (I noticed other tables had soup served that looked hot/had steam rising from them, so maybe just our bad luck); scallops - I barely ate one - full of sand that made it feel like I bit into glass, also not seared. The salad was fine. I did appreciate the servers, chef, workers being there for Thanksgiving. I’ve come here many times. I think it was just an off meal.

    This was a very pleasant experience for us on Thanksgiving Day. We chose the prime rib dinner complete with soup, salad, dinner rolls, potatoes & fresh green beans. The prime rib was smoked and had such a delicious flavor. The meat was perfectly cooked and incredibly delicious. Our server was Logan and he was so pleasant and made our meal delightful. Sheldon Inn Restaurant & Bar has great ambiance and loved the decor of this restaurant. We are looking forward to another meal at this restaurant and we highly recommend this to you also. 5 Stars on everything.
