Touch of class

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

Just read the title, grab your wallet and go. Great food, great service, delightful atmosphere, and a great spot to take your significant other for their birthday, especially if they don't like people surprising them with cheesy versions of the "Happy Birthday" song. (Our waitress simply handed my girlfriend her cheesecake with three lit candles in it and said, "Happy... More

Very nice experience. The employees at the hostess desk were welcoming and professional. It was a simple treat to receive such courteous service. Everyone ordered from the Restaurant Week menu. The selected starters were the porcini stuffed ravioli (wonderful flavor) and the eggplant rollatini (delicious). We all chose either the wasabi crusted salmon (the wasabi provided a nice gentle kick... More

The place was AMAZING! Took my husband there for Father's day and we loved it! He ordered the prime rib and I ordered ribeye both were cooked exactly how we asked. We ordered scallops topped w bacon and cheese and shrimp cocktail for appetizers- they were DELICIOUS!

We went here with a party of 9, including 3 children under 7 to celebrate my mother-in-law's 60th birthday. Our reservations were kept and we had a nice, round table. There were 4 of us with Gluten sensitivities and the waitress was very well versed in what was GF on the menu. Most of us got steak. My filet mignon... More

i;ve been to them all, NY's Peter Luger, Dc's Capital Grille, steak houses are ubiquitous yet, this was operating on all 8 cylinders. Great food, prepared properly, personable front of the house staff, and the space was unique and inviting. Wine prices I found to be a bit over the top, but nowadays that's the norm.

Had the unpleasant experience of overhearing a female manager berate a server, over something minimal. Certainly nothing worth the dining room overhearing. Food was good, management left something to be desired...
