My husband and I went here for a dinner date together. Everything was so good. He got the prime rib and it was very juicy. I had the seafood soup with a crab cake. Very yummy. The ambiance was delightful and service was excellent. Cliff, our server, did a great job with menu selections and recommendations. I would go again... More

My wife and I celebrated our 30th anniversary at Shoemakers. Scott, our waiter, was excellent - friendly, conversational and timely throughout the meal. The food was exceptional, noise levels allowed for normal conversation (even though my bride insists I need a hearing aid). We both had an 8oz filet. Both were cooked as requested. The wine list is ample and... More

So glad friends recommended Shoemakers to us. While in Lynchburg for a conference it was mentioned the this restaurant was a great place to dine. Used Open Table to make a reservation, arrived and was promptly taken to our table overlooking several pictures of shoes and cute sayings by famous people. You see Lynchburg is known for old shoe factories.... More

The food is excellent and the restaurant is beautiful. Most of the staff is pretty good but they can be snippy and rude. I will go back but will demand to be treated nicely. I am paying a lot of money for my meal. I am the customer and I deserve to be treated as nicely as possible.
