The Sherman Room a small, neighborhood bar and restaurant that I simply drove by for years until a few weeks ago. I wanted a quiet drink and a meal where I could just relax and hear myself think, not be bothered, and not feel like an idiot for being alone, yet not feel totally isolated.

As another reviewer mentioned, this really is a quiet neighborhood haunt, with a relaxed and casual atmosphere. The decor is very modest and minimal mid-70's, and the patrons are a mix of locals and businessmen. The staff is friendly, unassuming, go-with-the-flow, and makes one feel like a regular even on a first visit.

The food was the big surprise here. I ordered the Sherman Burger for lunch, which came with a cup of delicious soup, and was the best (and biggest!) burger I've ever had! The meat is incredibly tasty, and broiled to perfection. I've returned and also tried the chopped steak for dinner, which was equally scrumptious. The menu is somewhat limited, and the choices are simple fare, but their portions are generous, and the food is really, really good. They are known, apparently, for their steaks, which are a bit pricey, but from customers' comments while dining, well worth it.

A great place for a quiet, good meal! No hype, no rush, and no attitude. A very NOT L.A. kind of place, which is hard to find these days! Unpretentiously fabulous!!

I highly suggest coming here for their lunch specials. They have an awesome steak that is out of this world! It's not just a bar, the other side is a small restaurant. The service is good but the parking is a little tight. Be sure to pull around to the back to park.

Hands down the worst meal I've had in years. A few years ago I used to go there and it was good but but it started going down hill. Not too long ago I gave it another try and it seemed to have come back, but last night was terrible and will never go back. My wife and I both got steak and lobster, not cheap, asked for med-rare and I got med-well and she got well. When she sent hers back we got dirty looks from the cook so I asked him what the problem was. He cut her steak open and showed me a quarter sized pink spot in the middle. Continuing to get dirty looks from the cook. When she got her new steak it was cold. We didn't eat them and they still charged us. Oh, and the bathroom urinal was over flowing, no joke.

I've been going to the Sherman Room for a few years now based on my brother's devotion to the place. It's been around for a long time and it looks it. The decor is outdated and the staff has been around a long time, but don't let that keep you away. The bartender is friendly and pours a mean drink. Dinner is centered around steak - no surprise here - lots of different cuts. Get the house salad; it's sort of a blue cheese and sort of something tangy - yummy! Mud pie for dessert is yummy too. The prices have started going up, but I think they're still below market.

This place is crowded on weekends. If you have to wait, find a seat in the bar and enjoy yourself.
