Dessert was the highlight of our meal at the Craddock Terry Hotel’s Shoemakers American Grille. Indulge your sweet tooth with a slice of the chocolate blackout cake, but be forewarned that the massive wedge could easily feed two. That said, the rich dark chocolate cake layered with Belgium chocolate and topped with freshly whipped cream may be something you’ll want all to yourself. Or try the New York cheesecake made with an orange zest and pecan graham cracker crust. If neither of these suits your fancy, the Lynchburg, Virginia, restaurant also offers the “Shookie,” which is a molten chocolate chip cookie topped with vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce and pecans — something both kids and adults will love. For something lighter, opt for the selection of fresh berries served with a side of whipped cream. The dessert menu provides plenty of options for any kind of diner.
