I was so impressed. You walk in and are immediately struck by the cozy ambiance. The bar tables sit upon tree trunks fashioned as if a beaver chewed them. Massive logs intended for the Duluth Pier (purchased for $1 and brought by railway) line the ceiling. And the fireplace - assembled with stones from a nearby brook - is the... More

We had a superb special dinner here for Valentines Day! Walleye stuffed with shrimp and crab. Appetizer was a huge shared platter. It included sushi, sashimi, oysters, and chicken wontons. Great wine and beer selection too. A new favorite!

Sherwood Forest is our go to place for excellent dining! They have fantastic food and outstanding service. They are even able to accommodate one of my family members who is gluten and dairy free, and the meal is still edible! I would eat here everyday if I could.

We make it a point to eat at Sherwood Forrest for lunch each time we visit the Nisswa area. From the decor to the food, they hit on all cylinders. Do make it a point to have their mini-doughnut platter. So yummy! Great to have such a skilled chef here in the Nisswa/Baxter area. Give them a try.

Used to be our favorite, but new ownership offers extremely poor service-almost like they're doing you a favor seating you. We found the food to now be mediocre-so disappointing! But... for their high prices, several much preferred restaurants to visit.

We've been here in summer when the ideal is eating on the terrace and in fall eating inside and love it both ways. This is a romantic place with absolutely beautiful sunsets, rustic decor and wonderful food. We've like every meal we got, always had friendly service and love the mini-donut dessert plate! Who doesn't love mini-donuts and these are... More

Not as fancy as it once was but still a great place to sit with your honey and have a good meal and a drink.

$3 burgers, beers, and bloodies. Four of us paid less than $10 apiece for a burger and drinks. And the burgers were very good!
