My boyfriend and I are on a road trip and we stopped here along the way. After hours of driving we were tired and wanted something relaxing, not too fancy and quick. We stayed right down the street from Shaker's and have never heard of it so we decided to try it. We were greeted and seated immediately. After we... More

I'm very happy to hear how pleasant your visit was at Shakers! Were locally owned and operated with only two locations. One here in Roanoke and one in Lynchburg, VA so that's probably why you haven't heard of us. You made some great choices with the Bam Bam Shrimp Tacos and Boston Butt Sandwich and the au gratin potatoes have... More

Highly recommended. This place is a local restaurant — not part of a national chain. We selected it on that basis and on the ratings here on Trip Advisor. The food is excellent as is the service. The menu is extensive. This is worth a stop. Try it! You'll like it!

Based on Tripadvisor reviews, we ate here on January 1, 2016. Nachos as an appetizer - the chips were horrible but the toppings good. Needed more cheese. My wife got a steak and was satisfied. I got the salt and pepper catfish. While good, it is very salty, too salty. This restaurant is basically like your average family chain restaurant... More

The food I had here was pretty good. It tasted good. The service was pretty good. But nothing really jumped out, good or bad. To me this place is basically the same as a Cheddar's. Decent food at a good price. Fairly quick.

Wow, to hear that you enjoyed our Lynchburg location so much that it influenced you to come out again for dinner while here in Roanoke is awesome! Glad we were able to get you another good meal and having consistence between the two restaurants is always something we strive for. Hope to see you again when you're in either area! More
