I have been wanting to try this place for quite some time, but had not gotten around to making a reservation until today. I love the place. The selection of oysters was delicious, the ribeye steak was superb. The service was friendly and prompt. And the atmosphere was cozy. I will definitely be back.

My friend and I ate there last night expecting great things. At the end of the meal, we were sorely disappointed. The service was excruciatingly slow. It took 20 minutes to bring out the calamari, which was bland They served bread that was cold. We waited another 35 minutes to bring our main course from the time we finished our... More

Can't go wrong with the Press Room. Friendly, accommodating staff, and beyond-terrific food. Be absolutely sure to call for a reservation.

Excellent but very small restaurant in downtown Sherperdstown. Reservations a must on weekends. Good food, daily specials and full bar.

We read the great reviews for The Press Room and decided to try it because it sounded better than any restaurant in Harper's Ferry, where were were staying. The scallops (my meal) and the veal (my husband's) were cooked to perfection and the ambiance was just what we were looking for - elegant, but not pretentious. We loved the wine... More

The menu is varied and the oysters were a big hit. We either had rack of lamb or pasta and everyone raved about their food

Received a great referral from a local shop owner and the oysters did not disappoint. We sat at the bar and asked the bartender to choose a dozen of his favorite and they were amazing. Will definitely be back! If you want to eat dinner make sure and make a reservation!

From start to finish, we found the experience such a gem for such a small town in rural West Virginia. We live in a town of 50K in NH, with nothing close in caliber. The service was excellent, the meal well paced, menu selections varied and interesting. Although they are listed as American as their "style" it felt more French,... More

We stayed in Sharpsburg overnight but drove to this restaurant based on a recommendation of our B&B host. The food was really excellent and the menu choices most interesting and using local and seasonal ingredients. Overall, the value was excellent as well; not over priced but above average in all aspects. Would recommend a reservation as the place does fill... More
