Last week I had a disappointing experience at Sheldon Inn and left a less than favorable review. In fairness,we have come here for the last twenty years for a reason. Any place can have an off night, but overall I am not disappointed with anything there. The food is amazing. The service is wonderful and ambiance is incredible outside,which is my favorite. Last night we went and everything was perfect, as usual. I love this place and they keep improving it. The

Made reservations for my Mom's Birthday.. She very much enjoyed the dinner and time she had. Special touches like having her name in the menu which birthday wishes.. Food was great and we all had a wonderful time. Two days later and she texted my wife that the evening made her Birthday complete..

We have been coming here for over twenty years, sometimes as much as two times a month. I have to say that I have rarely been disappointed with the food. We have visited other fine dining restaurants, and I have to say that, for me, this is some of the best food in fine dining. I have yet to find one I like better.
This las visit was disappointing because I was told we could reserve a table outside, but when we arrived, there was an event they were hosting outside. The service was slower than usual but perhaps because of the outside event.
Most of the time, I am happy with this restaurant. I will try to stay away when they have events.

This was our second visit to the Sheldon Inn.

The food is excellent - the food TASTES good without a lot of of "culinary hi-jinks." He had the pasta special. I ordered the Wedge salad - lettuce crisp with an assortment of veggies, hard boiled egg, and blue cheese on the side. I had the stuffed poor chops...garlic mashed potatoes (Yum!) The desert was also fantastic.

The service is unlike you will receive anywhere in the area...Our server was spot on and attentive at the right times. Busser was rather quick to remove our plates and glasses, but not the worst sin for a restaurant.

We celebrated a small anniversary and the attention to detail by the host staff to make it memorable was not missed...our names and date was placed on top of the menu's "Special's" page and the host took a "keepsake" photo, and placed it in a "Silva's Sheldon Inn" note card...very sweet.

My choice of establishments where i wish to spend time and money has lessened quite a bit over my years in Sac County...I highly recommend Silva's Sheldon Inn. Great experience, worth getting gussied up for (& the bill)!

Patio dining was beautiful & romantic. Did get chilly and we had to ask that heatets be turned on, several times. Feel staff should have done this automatically when dark. No candles for our table. They were out!?!? We could barely see our food. All meals excellent. Liked not having sounds in dining room but we suffered poor service. Requests had to be reiterated several times. Food was slow in coming. Dishes not heated.

There were three of us. The stuffed pork chop and salmon dinners were excellent. I chose the special Hanger Steak medium and was quite disappointed. When it arrived it was rare. After additional cooking it was cooked medium but was on the tough side. I had planned to order the filet and wish I had done so.

Service was fine.

A little pricey but very good food. Service was great. A bit noisy when we were there and perhaps as a consequence of that a couple minor mistakes with the order. Very efficient and friendly wait staff. We will probably eat there again.
