A lovely early dinner on a Sunday.. great food... friendly service. Great place to eat. Would go there even more often if we weren't an hour away.

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely lunch with a great view of the water. Pizza Margarita was excellent, and service was friendly and efficient. Would definitely return!

We sat down and had dinner and a few drinks and were treated by some great northern hospitality. The scenic views of the lake were nice as well. We would definitely go back.

Six of us had lunch at the Sherwood Inn. Cozy inn atmosphere. Was most impressed that our server took our orders without writing them down and then placed the correct soup, salad, sandwich for the diner. Great view of the lake.

The Sherwood is part of our regular rotation. Our most recent visit was very disappointing. The steak was tough, the salad poorly dressed and presented, and the service lacking. We'll undoubtedly try it again, but I sure hope they step up their game.
