This was my second go around at Shoemakers. They did not fail! I was very impressed with their friendly, FULL TILT paying attention to microscopic detail like quality of service. My water glass was never able to get to half empty. The servers will practically power walk speed to your table and fill your water before the ice even have... More

I took my husband here for his birthday. This is one of the more fancier restaurants in Lynchburg. It is in the Craddock Terry Hotel downtown. My husband ordered his steak medium well and it came out almost rare. When he cut into it, it had red juice on the plate (it was hard for us to look at). We... More

Great atmosphere in the bar and dining room. It was especially nice to stay in the hotel and take the elevator to dinner. Steak was great. Nice restaurant for special occasions.

The setting is an old shoe warehouse that has been beautifully restored and turned into a lovely setting for a fine meal. There was a nice wine selection including several Virginia wines. The crab stuffed trout was perfectly cooked with an excellent blend of flavors. My husband had the blackened salmon which was not overly spicy with a Cajun cream... More

Tried Shoemaker's for the first time. This was the best dining experience we have had in this area in 20 years. First, it is a beautiful space, historic yet beautifully renovated. Service, from the moment we entered through the entire evening, was professional and discrete. Our server, Stephanie, was incredibly knowledgeable and very well trained in top rate service. Every...

Business dinner with client. Service was outstanding. Steak, salad, and appetizers were very good. Great atmosphere in downtown area in really cool old factory building. Highly recommended.

Excellent! My husband and I went for an early dinner. The atmosphere and ambiance is wonderful. The music was perfect. A nice sift jazz but with enough volume to hear it in the background. The service was excellent. Timely with table return but not intrusive. The food was superb. Fresh and cooked to order. Only downside...portions are huge. Certainly too... More

Excellent food and service. My wife gets the Buffalo Shrimp appetizer and we both usually get filets. They have a well stocked bar and an excellent wine list. I would Recommend a reservation and ask for Joyce or Lane!
