We went to Shoemakers for wife's birthday dinner. Seated on time. Our server was Lane and she was fabulous. We had escargot with mushrooms and the ladies loved it so much they got a second order. Paired our meal with a German Reisling wine which was excellent. Main course was salmon and lobster and filet with crab cake. Excellent and... More

We stayed at the Craddock Terry Hotel and decided to try the next door restaurant. We were in for a treat! The atmosphere is spacious, but still cozy. We had a table in the back and had a nice view of the restaurant. The service was fast and attentive. I ordered the salad with the Ranch dressing; it was the... More

Had dinner at Shoemakers to celebrate our anniversary over the holidays. Turned out to be the perfect choice. I ordered one of the specials (rib eye) for the night and my wife ordered off the menu (Salmon). Both meals were delicious. We ordered dessert along with the coffee (pressed) after the meal. I especially enjoyed the coffee. The place was... More

Shoemaker's restaurant has a really good bar and specialty drinks. They are very busy at happy hour. The restaurant has the best steak in town and is a romantic place for a first date. Parking is a real, real problem as their tiny parking lot is shared with a hotel.

We went as a family of four with small children. As long as the children are well behaved bring them, there are great children options. $8 includes drink, entree and dessert, just don't sub out sides. They will charge for an al la cart side. Food is good. Crab cake was made with fresh crab and fillet was good. If... More

We were traveling back from a long weekend family gathering. Nice detour to the Craddock Terry on our own. We took an opportunity to dine at Shoemakers on this visit. The atmosphere is eclectic, the framed art about Imelda Marco's shoes rings true to my heart from Mark Knopler's lyrics. Find it and listen to it...... Then the oversized shoe... More
