This place never disappoints me, the first place that comes to my mind when I have to take my friends or clients out for lunch/ dinner or quick drinks is Shakers. Good food, good ambience and quick service. Hospitality is good too. They recently revisted their menu options and made it better I would certainly rate it as my favorite... More

I work on the front desk of the Comfort Inn & Suites and I send guests to this restaurant every day that I work and over the last several years I have been quite the cheerleader for Shaker's. So it's very disappointing when my mother and I did not receive very good treatment in return. When we walked in, the... More

I had Bam Bam Shrimp Tacos and a baked sweet potato which were really good. Hubby had a beautiful steak with blue cheese on top which he really enjoyed. His green beans were crisp and flavorful. Their special desert was a Toasted S'Mores Lava Cake which was delightful.

Whenever I am in Lynchburg for business, I eat dinner here. The prices are reasonable, the portions are perfect, and the staff is great! My menu choice is the Grilled Salmon which is always cooked perfectly and very tasty. I love the baked sweet potatoes with brown sugar butter.

While in town visiting my aged father (in his 95th year), we offered to take him to lunch. Shakers was his choice, as he loves their hamburgers. We went on a Wednesday about 1:00 pm .. the lunch crowd was still heavy. Both my dad and my wife ordered hamburgers, and they both thought they were great. I ordered a... More

My wife and I ordered two different cuts of steaks and they were both very good. The service was very good and the staff did hustle to provide a good experience. The layout of the room was such that it was a little loud, but we could still have a conversation.

As picky as Lynchburg is about their food ( me included) you have to be doing it very well to last as long as Shaker's. Service and food are still outstanding and they seen to keep up with new options and recipes while keeping the tried and true. Shaker's remains my first choice for lunch or dinner.

My wife and I ate lunch here on a Saturday. It was actually a late mid-afternoon lunch and there was no wait. She got a seafood dish and the salmon was terrific. I ordered a chicken dish and the chicken was a little dry and the coating was slightly burned. It was covered with a cheese sauce and tasted good.... More

This restaurant was good...not great, but good overall. My son had a hamburger and fries and he loved it. I had marinated flank steak which was okay. It was nothing special, but it was fine. The food was very slow to come out and I feel like the food is WAY over priced. You could get a better steak and... More

We found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. The reviews were correct. Food and service were very good. I ordered the catfish and slaw. The fish was very tasty and prepared as it should be. It had a light crispy crust and was very moist. My wife had the chicken Caprese and enjoyed it. Zac did a good job serving us.
