This is one of the first evenings that the newly remodeled Sherman House, now "The Sherman" was open for dinner. The place looks just beautiful, the dining and bar areas very inviting. The new staff is very friendly and are eager to serve. I went with my daughter and son in law; my daughter had a roast pork that was...

After our last visit, I understand the restaurant has closed. Sorry to hear this. Was one of favorite go to restaurant for German food. Hopefully it will reopen in future with more German dishes. Atmosphere was very Bavarian. Owners seemed to be German. They friendly and outgoing.

We have stayed at the Sherman House in Batesville, Indiana several times. At first it was fun, good food and the people were great. All is still fine, but the food has gone down. We are hoping it reopens soon with good food again. We always enjoyed our visits there. Wonder which room is the most haunted? We have stayed...

The Sherman House a a bit of Bavaria in Batesville. The food is excellent, reasonably priced and the menu has a number of wonderful German delights. The rooms are all decorated in turn of the century decore. The whole experience is quite charming.

Very good food and atmosphere. Incredible service. Great history here. I stayed in General Sherman's suite, no dreams or anything, but liked the extra room. Great meeting rooms. Very safe town. And you are right downtown.

Every year we stop at the Sherman House for breakfast on the way to Nashville, Indiana. The restaurant is in a historic building in downtown Batesville. Service is always good, and breakfast is hearty and reasonably priced. Tequila Sunrises and Mimosas are delicious and have become part of our brunch tradition.

My husband had a meeting in Batesville, and some years ago we stayed at the Sherman House. I called and made reservations for him to stay two nights assuming the rooms were still nice. He said his room was terrible - had chipped paint and badly in need of a thorough update. The bathroom was worse than the sleeping area....

Myself and four of my friends stayed at the Inn for a night. We ate in the restaurant which was very clean with good service. The food was a bit pricey depending on what you ordered but very tasty. The rooms reminded me of a bed and breakfast which helped to add to the hotels old charm. None of us...

We called ahead to ask about "gluten free" options. We were told that they could prepare lots of items gluten free and the chef was aware. When we were seated and told our server we needed gluten free, she went back to check with the chef. She came out with 3 things that they could do... the parmesan fish without...
