Three of us ate there Thursday evening, can't say enough about it. Servings were certainly big enough, and tasted great. Service was spot on as was the atmosphere. All three of us had a chicken entree and all were perfect. I had the Chicken Stir...Fry, well just plain,WOW! Other two diners were equally impressed. Easy to see why Shakers is rated very high.More

Outstanding dining experience for lunch with friends. Despite no handicapped parking spaces being available, we were quickly seated by the hostess staff and greeted by our server shortly there after.

We visit Lynchburg often, and Shakers is one of our favorite restaurants there. We've also eaten at the one in Roanoke, which is also great. The menu has a variety of food, and the entrees we've ordered have always been delicious. Our favorite foods there...are the nice dark bread they provide with dinner, Old Bay Shrimp, Grilled Pork Chops with honey-mustard glaze, and Grilled Chicken Chesapeake with baby shrimp, crabmeat, and mushrooms. The food is served by friendly, competent servers, and if they do mess up on a busy night, the manager is super nice to make up for it. I've never sat at the bar, but we've observed that it is a relaxing area where people appear to be enjoying themselves. The decor and details in the building create a pleasant environment. It's so good to see a locally owned restaurant thrive these days!More

I travel frequently for business and eat out to restaurants all the time. This was horrible. Our steaks were suppossed to come out mediun rare and they were raw. We asked them to take them back and they came out charbroiled burnt. We asked if...we could order something else and he said the kitchen closed 10 minutes ago. We got some desserts to go and left. They couldn't get us out of there fast enough. We showed up an hour before closing and we were rushed from the beginning. The server at least did the right thing and took the steaks off the check so I gave him a decent tip.More

We enjoyed takeout from this restaurant so much that we ordered it the second night of our stay. Excellent salads, catfish bites, chicken strips, and key lime pie.

We stopped here last Sunday and were pleasantly surprised. Its right near the campus of LU and the food was outstanding. Our server was pregnant and did an A plus job. Our salads and burger were spot on and the fresh tea kept coming. Put...this place on your list when you are in the area.More

Covid-19 put a real crimp in dining out, but Shakers is open and is recommended. It is conveniently located at the outer rim of Riverside Mall. They are practicing good social distancing, and the staff wears masks. The food is very good and the service...was excellent. I can recommend the filet mignon, the avocado chicken grill with fries, the chicken almond salad, and the chili & chips. Our waitresses were attentive and pleasant. The atmosphere is upscale, the menu extensive and our experience very enjoyable.More

Shakers is probably our favorite restaurant in Lynchburg. Reasonably priced and great choices. The cilantro lime chicken is great.

Our neighbor told us to try this restaurant when I was asking for a suggestion for Valentine's Day. We went with our son and his wife and three pre-school kids. The waitress was attentive, and helpful. We were all really pleased with the quality of...the food! Prices weren't bad either. We will definitely return. My husband had the chicken cordon bleu, my d-i-law had the pork, my son had the Cayenne shrimp and I had mushrooms and spinach with spaghetti sauce over pilaf.More

Full disclosure - my kid sister was the manager here many years ago. There were five of us - the high school junior had to work on a major project and had to make some PBJ to maintain life. Middle sister had a friend who...was mostly quiet - I'd be quiet too if I didn't know this bunch .We wanted to opt for a round table, but KS thought where we were would be better - it was. Our server was most excellent. I had their chicken breasts with cheese and button mushrooms with green beans and rice pilaf. FANTASTIC. Not meaning to be nasty, but green beans can be nasty. These were fantastic - ends trimmed, thin, cooked with onion and a few other things -super. Too much chicken - I finished it at home a few days later. All in all a wonderful meal in excellent surroundings. Also close to the two motels I stay at when in town,More

We are visiting Lynchburg for the first time and met some local friends by their recommendation. We were seated right away and drinks followed shortly. I had the honey glazed salmon with fries. It was delicious! My husband had cheesey chicken. Also, very good. The...best was the banana vanilla ice cream dessert! Our waitress, Sydney, was fantastic! We will definitely be eating there again when our daughter comes to Liberty!More
