We were here for a special birthday celebration and commandeered a banquet room. Wait staff was exceptionally accommodating. Food was fantastic. I had filet mignon. It was perfect. Pricey, but worth it.

The restaurant is upscale and classy without feeling stuffy. Our waiter was efficient and friendly, but not overbearing. They offered a limited (but wonderful) menu for graduation weekend which...

We have dined at Shoemaker's American Grille three times over the past 6 months while visiting our daughter who attended Sweet Briar. Each time the level of service, food, quality of mixed drinks and atmosphere reminds us why we always come back. Lauren has waited on us all three times. She is a warm, friendly and knowledgeable woman. Lauren assisted... More

Had the sirloin steak. Was recommended to us on the train down to Lynchburg. Food was absolutely fabulous and the service was great.

Located in the Craddock Terry Hotel on the 4th floor is Shoemakers Grill. This French influenced steak and seafood restaurant was an excellent choice for my business meeting. The escargot was one of the best I've ever had and the

We were in town to celebrate graduation from Liberty College. Needless to say the town, and Shoemaker's were very busy. Despite this our service from Thomas was exceptional- attentive yet not bugging you! Food was fine from the truncated special event menu.

On a business trip this week, I took a guest to Shoemaker's Fine Dining in Lynchsburg, VA for dinner. I expected a good meal based on the Trip Advisor reviews, but what we got was a fantastic meal with excellent service. It could not have been better. I started with the fried oyster appetizer, and have to say they were... More
