We had reservations for 7 p.m. on a weeknight, and we did need them. I could only sum up our dinner in one word: Delicious!

I was so pleased when I arriived for a Saturday evening dinner that the requests I made with my reservation were honored. The staff was attentive; food delicious. It was my husband's birthday and a candle arrived on his dessert. And since we had a guest, I wanted to pay the bill away from the table. Our server was professional.... More

My husband and I try to go to Shepherdstown at least once a year. We go to the Press Room at least onece while we are there. We have never been disappointed. The food is always great. The service is exceptional and the employees make you feel welcome.

We stayed at the Jacob Rohrbach Inn, in Antietam (lovely place), and the inn keeper recommended The Press Room for dinner. I called sometime in the afternoon and made a reservation for 830. When we arrived at 830, we were told to wait 5 minutes to be seated by a lady who seemed to be maybe the owner or manager... More

Far and away the best restaurant in the region featuring a wide ranging menu with many specials offered. Particularly good for very fresh seafood and an oyster selection equal to the best city center restaurants. Wonderful pasta dishes. A great Sunday brunch

It is our go place for a evening out (Sunday Brunch is great too!) as a couple and with visiting family and friends. And even New Years Eve a couple times. The Specials are always exceptional as are Signature menu Entrees. The entrees are far more creative that there larger competitor in the area. Dinning. Good Wine list too.

Our B&B owner recommended this place for dinner. We love the atmosphere of the exposed brick walls. The food was very good and fresh. Service was a little slow at times, but very friendly. If you are thinking about going, check their schedule 1st (e.g. the B&B owner mentioned they are closed on Tuesdays;) and, if possible, you may want... More

The Press Room is a wonderful place to go for dinner. Upscale, but kid friendly! Everyone at our table was very happy with our dinners. They have specials every night with something sure to please. Service is great and it's because they maintain their service staff who are very professional. I have been there before and had a great meal.... More
