Cannot say enough good things about the Shoemakers Grille at the Craddock. Great food and service. Extensive drinks menu with a nice selection of local brews from downstairs at the Jefferson Street Brewery. A very enjoyable dinner experience all around.

I am never disappointed. I still believe that Shoemakers has the best service in Lynchburg. I had the prime rib special, blackened. Cooked to perfection. My garlic mashed could have been warmer. Portion was so large, I finished it with my eggs the next morning. Wedge salad very fresh. My wife had a crab cake, and she said it was... More

Great place for our dinner. Good service, just the right amount of attention, and one of the best New York strips in a long, long time.

We had our anniversary dinner at the Shoemaker and it was worth every penny! We were staying at the Craddock Terry Hotel and I like that the restaurant was just an elevator ride away. The atmosphere of the restaurant was classy and I loved all the quotes from famous people about shoes that hung on the walls. The service was... More

Off to Shoemakers for my husband's birthday. Jonathan is a excellent server and his professionalism made the evening a treat. Before and after the entree were great as usual. On this visit the entree left something to be desired. Filets cooked medium were too far to the medium rare side. Yes it was sent back, but just not the same.... More
