Nice Spot for a Bite to Eat.

The Press Room is a small restaurant, so call ahead if you can (304-876-8777). We had the last table, located the kitchen. This actually allowed us to watch the care they take in preparing every meal. Shepherdstown is a small community with some tourist trade and a college, so if you're coming... read more

Everyone made me and my group felt welcomed. Everyone was friendly and the food absolutely delicious. The atmosphere was great. Such a pleasant place to go for cocktails with friends or to laugh around a table with great food.

We ate dinner at The Press Room last weekend, and everything about the meal was pleasant. We got there - right on time - for our 7 pm reservation (be sure to make reservations) - and had to wait a few minutes in the bar. What an interesting decor - oyster plates up on the walls. Then we were seated... More

We had dinner at the Press Room at the suggestion of our innkeeper and also based on the reviews on Tripadvisor. The restaurant was about a three block walk from our B&B but there seemed to be ample parking on the street. The restaurant is directly on Main Street and has no parking lot From the outside the curb appeal... More

Awesome service! Yesterday was a great Mojito, and stuffed figs. I have never been disappointed in the food. Brunch is the best around. Always something new, and always fresh.

The Press Room is probably the fanciest and most upscale meal you will have in Shepherdstown. It's got an extensive menu, lots to choose from. The service is good and the food is good to great. The setting is intimate and refined, especially for such a small town.

Be sure to have reservations on the weekend! This place is popular and it is easy to see why. Food was delicious! We had the gorgonzola custard salad which is not really a salad but a yummy baked cheese soufflé. I would have liked it even more on a bed of greens with more pears and walnuts but it was... More
