    We went to dinner at the Sheldon Inn for our anniversary. Best dinner we’ve had in a long time and the staff went above and beyond for our evening. New favorite place.

    Sheldon Inn was great. This was our 1st time eating there. The food, service and ambiance was simply amazing. We eat on the terrace and there was live entertainment coming from the venue next door. It did get a little cold but the fire pitt made up for that. At the end we topped it off with their delicious dessert. We will definitely be returning. Another great restaurant to visit!!!

    It was our first time at your restaurant. It was our 29th wedding anniversary and you made it special with the menu and a photo. My husband was pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious. He did say his steak was a little over cooked but otherwise we were very pleased. The staff was very friendly and polite. We sat outside, happy we chose it.We did recommended your restaurant to the family and friends. Thank you for such a pleasant dinner experience.

    I was very disappointed for my Mother’s Day experience. Made a reservation for 11:30 am didn’t get our food until after 12:30… am over an hour wait for food. Our waiter did not even come around once to ask how our food was (probably knew we were mad) Did not even have a chilled glass for a beer had to fetch myself after he said he was going to find one. The food was cold and over priced. Not going back! Ou water boy was the great part of our experience.

    Sheldon Inn is top notch! Service is formal without being pretentious. Our server was very gracious, attentive, without hovering. The bar is definitely on their game. I had their dirty sidecar and it was excellent. Sidecar is my favorite cocktail, so this is high praise from me. Crab cakes are the best we’ve ever had- the little bit of sweet/hot pepper just tips the scales! I had their delicious pork chop, which never disappoints, and my husband had the beef stroganoff. This place is great for a fancy date night, upscale casual dining with friends, or a place to take family/friends you want to impress.

    This was our second time having brunch at Sheldon Inn, this visit was celebrating my daughter’s birthday. We had the Loco Moco, Garden Frittata, Farmers Breakfast, and French Toast. We ordered the beignets for dessert and they are the perfect sweet treat at the end of brunch. I would have rated higher but we some dirty utensils and cups that had a funky smell in them.

    It was our first time coming here since moving to the area in 2019. I brought a friend from out of town on a Thursday evening. The food was ok for the price but we felt a little abandoned out on the patio and it took a while to get our food and drinks. We saw the waiter at the beginning of the meal but really had to flag him down to get checked in on. He also seemed a little annoyed by us. As a positive it is a beautiful place and I will try the events they have.
