We stayed overnight at Sherwood Inn. There was nothing open in nearby Port Carling so we made reservations at the Inn restaurant. I am really glad we did, the food was delicious and the server very good.

To a degree, we enjoyed our meals at the Vintage Restaurant attached to Sherwood Inn but, were disappointed with the tepid-to-cool temperature of the breakfast buffet. After three mornings, we were glad to be going home. Pity! Dinners had exceptional flavours and were hot when they arrived. Would have stayed hot if the plates had been warmed ahead of time....

The dressing was good though. I also had the gnocchi. It was just ok. No real flavour popped... More

Really enjoy going here over the decades. Not as nice as it used to be, but still is pleasant to go for dinner. Enjoy the grounds and walking around.

The quality was ok, however, for the price, the amount of food was not good value for the money. Pricing was made manageable as result of having an Inn credit as part of our package.

A beautiful Inn with a storied past. Old Georgian white mansion set at the base of Lake Joseph. We stayed here on our way back from northern Ontario and what a welcoming setting. Our room was newly renovated in the main building overlooking the front entrance. It is an entrancing spot and we had dinner in an exclusive dining room... More

I would probably look at other dining options, but the food was good, just not up to par for the prices.
