Back n Lynchburg for family this time. Since Shoemaker's blew me away in May, when on business, thought I would take my favorite uncle and aunt for a visit.

A repeat performance. Food was wonderful, service was five star and we had a blast. Thank you folks.

Although a little difficult to find, the effort was worth it. The transition of an old shoe factory into an excellent restaurant is interesting. Our server Thomas was very helpful in telling of the history and how this restaurant became very popular. Food was very well prepared and priced. Would visit again.

My husband and I went here for a dinner date together. Everything was so good. He got the prime rib and it was very juicy. I had the seafood soup with a crab cake. Very yummy. The ambiance was delightful and service was excellent. Cliff, our server, did a great job with menu selections and recommendations. I would go again in a heart beat! Thanks for a great evening!

Full of amazing smiles and chat, what an absolutely wonderful member of staff to have on your team. Credit to your restaurant.

My wife and I celebrated our 30th anniversary at Shoemakers. Scott, our waiter, was excellent - friendly, conversational and timely throughout the meal. The food was exceptional, noise levels allowed for normal conversation (even though my bride insists I need a hearing aid). We both had an 8oz filet. Both were cooked as requested. The wine list is ample and the cheese cake is a great way to end a meal. Altogether a fine evening - not inexpensive - but well worth it.
