Fast lunch

This is a very small restaurant, ideal for lunch - business man's lunch with the usual fare, nicely prepared and served. Liked the fast service. Didn't like the limited menu.

My children and I and a few friends went to The Press for dinner a couple of weeks ago...on Wednesday (half off bottles of wine), Everything was wonderful....from the cheese plate appetizer to our meals...and, of course, the wine. The servers were attentive and prompt. The atmosphere welcoming. Although we had to leave around 9 pm, they have music most... More

We have gone to the press several times. We have gone for dinner, we have gone several times to see a band play and our favorite and last visit was on a Saturday. We were excited to find they had happy hour on Saturday with a good selection of beer and wine and yummy snacks.

Friends and I thoroughly enjoyed, once again, the food at The Press. It has long been a standby of ours for both quality and great creativity. Never have we been disappointed. Its soups are unusual and delicious. Its salads are gorgeous, ample and delectable. Its entrees never disappoint and its desserts are the tastiest. Its hot rolls and tapenade always... More

This place had a great band on Friday night and was standing room only. Their drink menu was varied and mixed drinks were definitely delightfully different. I had one with Jasmine Liquor, which I didn't know even existed. The food looked appetizing, although we were there only for drinks. The wait staff scurried about carefully weaving in and out of...

I ordered a hamburger and it was $12. It came with fresh vegetables and very good fries. The paddy was very small for the price. The service was good. Drinks were $3.50. However, it was very noisy and not for a family. It is really a place for a business lunch and veggies are their best feature. If you want... More

The atmosphere is decidedly casual, but the service is always top-notch! There always seems to be people hanging around smoking outside their front door, which is kind of weird and uninviting, but hold your breath and walk in anyway! It's lovely inside, and I've been to far more expensive restaurants and haven't had such consistently attentive service and top-quality food.... More

I have been going to the Press on and off for the past 20 years. When I was a teen I went to watch local bands play and to eat vegetarian dishes. My friend and meet there once a year. We just recently visited and I figured I would review it. The food was good. I think they could put... More

This place has some interesting vegan and vegetarian options on the menu. It is a great choice if your party includes folks with highly varied diets. The food is quite good and the atmosphere is very good. Artsy place with writer types always hanging around out front. It is not outrageously expensive like some of the places in town that... More

Vibrant ambiance in this brew-pub and eatery in central Claremont. Good standard dinner fare (I had very good mahi-mahi tacos) and nice beer selection (including local Dale Bros. offerings). Great place to unwind with friends/colleagues!
