Lovely place for a special meal!

I met my husband here to celebrate my birthday. I arrived a bit early and sat at the bar to wait. I enjoyed a Manhattan, which was quite tasty, and the Ahi Tuna appetizer. The tuna plate was small, but the fish was perfectly prepared and just the thing. My husband enjoyed a cocktail as well. The... read more

Over the years Shoemakers has been open we have had many excellent meals. Their menu is varied and supplies choices for everyone. The wine list is expensive for Lynchburg, but delivers great value for quality and well known wines. As a rule, the food and service are good, but on occasion the wait staff can appear to be under trained... More

this is a wonderful restaurant. I tend towards fresh vegetables grilled fish and steaks, Shoemakers delivers on both. That being said I have had the steak salad which was also terrific. The space is great!

I got fried oyster appetizer and a wedge salad for my meal -- delicious! My husband got the crab cake. Our friends got beef tenderloin and Mahi-mahi. All delicious. The service was great and the atmosphere is wonderful. Inside the Craddock-Terry building, Shoemaker's has original exposed brick walls and lots of other architectural details that would make it feel at... More

This was our second trip to Shoemaker's and once again it was terrific! This time we met three friends for dinner. Shrimp cocktails served at the bar were excellent -- ice cold, firm, and spicy cocktail sauce. The dinner special was a ribeye steak, and everyone enjoyed that. I had fantastic salmon and my husband enjoyed the cioppino. I had... More

Upon arrival, I was greeted by the manager who didn't look so excited to see me, whatever.. I was told if i crammed myself into a corner with 5 other people surrounding me I... More

Tonight's dinner was a celebration of gastronomic delights! Chef Roger is to be congratulated once again for the extraordinarily sumptuous offerings that he presents to the patrons of this fine dining restaurant.

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