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.

Offered as a special, it was every bit as good as the grouper served at Shula's in Tampa. The oysters were amazing.

Enjoyed a nice meal at this restaurant after hiking nearby. The service was fast and friendly. Ordered a salad and bacon clam chowder and both were excellent! The home made tiramisu was also delicious.

I attended a company seminar at Shoemaker's last month. I was really looking forward to it as I had never eaten there before but had heard a lot about it. The evening began on a sour note and ended much the same way. Before the seminar began, I asked for a soda. I waited for over 20 minutes and finally... More

The entrees were well done and service was superb. The filet was just outstanding and served with very good Bearnaise sauce. Desserts were just great. We loved this restaurant and completely recommend it.

We had the opportunity to dine at Shoemaker's while visiting our son at Liberty University. The atmosphere was wonderful and the food was even better. We had several people in our party and everyone was extremely pleased with their meals. The steaks and crab cakes were delicious and cooked perfectly. We would definitely recommend Shoemakers to anyone visiting the area.... More

We fell upon Shoemaker's a bit by mistake on a recent trip through Lynchburg. And what a treat! We enjoyed a great dinner at the bar. We started off with sharing calamari. My husband had vegetarian platter which was beautiful! I enjoyed the chop salad with skit steam and a side of Spinach Succotash. All of which was pretty good.... More
