Maybe a little pricey but changing menu that will satisfy your taste buds and an more than adequate wine list. Pleasant atmosphere with good lighting.

One of the higher end dining experiences in Lynchburg. When we are celebrating a special occasion, this is one of our go-to places. Excellent service, food and ambience. They have a nice private dining room, good for private parties or business meetings. While we have our favorite menu items (hard to beat the fillet and crab), their specials always leave... More

Our party thoroughly enjoyed all of our entrees; we had the steaks and the seared tuna. I would encourage reservations for the weekends. There is a bar and tables outside if the weather cooperates. The service was impeccable and thoughtful.

We loved the location of this restaurant. But the food did not meet our expectations or the reviews. The tuna app came out warn. The garlic shrimp app burned at first bite from so much garlic. Wine was good. But it's hard to mess up wine. Wish we could have tried an entree but after two failed apps, who would... More

Outstanding food, huge wine list, experienced and helpful staff, and a décor that you won't find anywhere else. This is one of my favorite restaurants in Virginia. A place to take someone that you want to impress. I had the filet and my guest had the rib-eye and crab cake. Both meals were incredibly good.

Beautiful and calm. We had steak and a salmon dish that were outstanding. I, being female, ordered desert which was something called a "shookie". It was a fresh baked cooking, chocolate and nut chip type I think, with ice cream, whipped topping and cherry. My spouse ate most of it, and he never eats dessert. He said it was the... More

The burgers and sweet potato fries have always been a standard when I go to Shoemakers. However, this past visit I ordered the special...porcini ravioli for appetizer and a filet with broccoli for the entre. Chocolate cake for dessert! $25 and it was worth every penny. The appetizer was fantastic and the steak was yummy. I could not finish the... More

We went there last night, the first day of Restaurant Week. For $25, you get a three course meal. The choices were excellent and the portions were the same as if you were paying full price (sometimes restaurants make portions smaller during that week). It was an delicious meal and even though it was packed, the food was cooked perfectly... More
