Dinner for Two?

Traditional steakhouse ambience, good Service - and best Rib Eye Steak in town. The grilled salmon will not disappoint either.

Great atmosphere and food, but a little pricey. Service is great also. Located next to the Craddock Terry Hotel, a nice boutique hotel.

Chose this restaurant because it was a one minute walk back to our hotel room. So glad we chose this stylish restaurant. My husband and I had a very memorable meal with the most attentive service. My salmon was beautifully presented and cooked perfectly and my husband said his steak, mashed potatoes and asparagus were better than he's had at... More

We dined here while spending the weekend at the Craddock Terry Hotel, the restaurant is part of the property and is an excellent part of it! I had escargot for an app, that I can't always find on the menu, even in upscale restaurants. It was very good. My husband and I both ordered from the nightly feature menu and... More

I've been here a number of times, and I've never had anything less than perfect. Very basic menu, but what they serve, they serve well. Must try the kona fillet!

Shoemakers is the premiere restaurant in Lynchburg. I take guests there a couple times a month and am never disappointed. I recommend the steaks and their grilled vegetables are good too.

Lovely setting and fabulous food. I had the vegetarian plate along with an appetizer. I was unprepared for how much food this was! Portions are not skimpy, so by all means share things. Loved the mac n cheese. My SO had a steak that he loved.

I went with a group for Lynchburg Restaurant Week. We all ordered off the special restaurant week menu because it featured 3 courses for a fixed price, The food was delicious! Our waiter was about perfect - offering tips and suggestions. For most of our party, it was the first time there and no one had a complaint about anything.... More

I dined here with a large dinner party. The staff never missed a beat. The crab cakes are the best around. The steaks are better than Ruth's Chris. The atmosphere is great. This is a great place for that special occasion.

We went with a group of friends for Lynchburg Living's "Restaurant Week." Shoemaker's featured a 3-course prix fixe menu, with several options for each course. The members of our party all ordered different faire, and there wasn't a thing that ranked as anything less than exquisite. Our server was meticulous and attentive. All in all--a perfect evening, at an unbelievably... More
