The Kona steak served at Shoemakers was as good as any I've ever eaten, maybe even the best. We enjoyed everything about eating there including the ambiance.

To start, great drinks at the bar. Then came the appetizers for 3 that could have fed at least 6! Finished us off with soup and steaks cooked per order!

I can't say enough about the staff when we decided to have our sons groom dinner there. They were so attentive and ensured everything went smoothly. The food was excellent with a perfect amount of choices. Atmosphere was very nice.

Shoemakers American Grille is an excellent upscale restaurant. They have a great bar for drinks and dining. Shoemakers is also a good place to host large dinners for wedding rehearsal parties or large business luncheons and group seminars.
