Love the outside eating area, with the fireplace. Nice touch with the Sunday specials. The food is good, smaller portions. Menu doesn't change, so that's the downside if you go often. Recommend reservations, we've been turned away 2 people, without many times. :-(

beautiful decor made with re-claimed lumber. Old supper club of the 50's feel. Excellent food & service. So glad we used a groupon to experience this.

We discovered Sherwood Forest on our Brainerd Lakes vacation last year, joining them for several meals. So of course, we had to introduce our friends to Sherwood this year. It did not disappoint! My wife had wonderful sliders to accompany her amazing Lady Slipper cocktail....More

We visited this place for a spontaneous dinner while on vacation. 2 kids and 2 adults- we shared the appetizer bruschetta plate and the mini donut dessert- and recommend them both- yum!

I love this property. It is a beautiful building inside and out. The menu occasion only changes which is a good thing. I think they try to keep their menu unique from other establishments nearby....And they should because they are not actually on the lake...More

We had lunch there the week of the July 4th holiday - so you think they would have staffed up. We have had lunch there several times in the past. They do seat you right away, but then you wait, and wait, for someone to...More

I came here with my extended family, a total of 11 people. We got reservations for 7:10 at least a week earlier, and got seated right away. Once we were seated, it took at least 20 minutes for us to get water, and at least...More

If you aren't one to read long reviews, I'll cut right to the chase at the beginning- IT WAS TERRIBLE. Please save yourself hours of wasted time waiting for your overpriced, mediocre, and stingy food to come and don't EVER go to this restaurant. It...More
