After I came here for a meeting I tried for three years to get my wife back. I had the crab cakes then and got them again. Yes, she finally came and like me she is convinced that this is one of Lynchburg's Best Restaurants. The crab cakes are still the best I've ever had. They are full of meat... More

I ate at Shoemaker's for the first time for a friend's bachelorette night. The party experienced it in a lovely environment and good service. Service could have been a tad faster, but it wasn't bad. You definitely get what you pay for here. VERY yummy food. A place you come for special occasions not every night dinner.

We stopped here based on recommendations from friends as we were travelling through the area. No reservations, but the restaurant accommodated us. It is a charming place with wonderful food and service. It also has a very nice bar. Our waiter (sorry, can't remember his name) was incredibly welcoming, friendly and helpful. There is no question that this would be... More

We eat at the restaurant while staying at The Craddock Terry Hotel. Our meal was excellent, crab cakes and steaks, with a very good red wine recommended by our server. It is part of The Craddock Terry Hotel restored shoe factory complex, and well worth a visit. We will return!

The dinner my wife and I had at Shoemaker's was good, but not amazing. While the service and atmosphere were far above average for Lynchburg, and the food was very good, it was not worth the price of the evening. I would definitely go back to Shoemaker's in the future, but it is a little too pricey to make this... More

I took a date here on Christmas Eve, both of us being in our early 20s. We decided to sit at the bar while waiting for our table to be ready. It took about 10 minutes before the bar tender came over to take our orders. After ordering, he requested our IDs and examined each one with his back to... More

Excellent food. Truly amazing ribeye steak and the burger is something to die for. Food quality is worth every penny.

Shoemaker's staff was courteous and knowledgeable about the menu. I had the Tuna entree which was perfectly cooked. This is a perfect spot to entertain business clients.
