In a small town with several very good restaurant choices, The Press Room leads the pack. An outstanding menu augmented by some equally impressive seasonal specials. My wife had the warm Gorgonzola custard salad (terrific) and a half order of the pappardelle pasta with mushrooms which was quite ample for her main course. I chose the house salad with shaved...

Took my beautiful bride here and neither of us were disappointed. The food was absolutely delicious and appropriately priced. The wait staff was exceptionally knowledgeable and attentive to our needs. Wonderful setting in downtown Shepherdstown. All in all, highly recommended. You won't be disappointed.

This transformed newspaper site can compete with ANY Restaurant..from NYC to Paris. The decor is quaint but formal --not easy to accomplish. An intimate bar area overlooks the historic street. The staff happily split our entree with no charge. The salmon penne was heavenly; the bread! Three grains made especially for by them. Wonderful!! I would make a special trip... More

The Press Room has been really terrific in the past. But last week, the pasta dishes were ordinary, the roasted beet salad was uninspired, but the Gorgonzola custard was tasty. Hopefully this was just an off midweek downturn because The Press Room has a neat ambiance, though sometimes there seems to be tension among the staff...

We live in Shepherdstown and this is our favorite restaurant by far. Interesting, delicious food. Friendly, attentive service. Relaxed attractive atmosphere. We request the "library" room because we find it a bit quieter. Prices are right for this very pleasant experience. Every guest we have taken to The Press Room has been delighted.

Great food, but at a price. I enjoyed it very much and didn't mind treating myself. If your looking for a romantic time or a really good meal, this seems the ideal spot. It on the main street in town and has a nice clean feel inside and out. I'd recommend it to anyone near Shepherdstown!

We enjoyed a gourmet brunch at the most impeccable restaurant in Sheperdstown. The Press Room was a five star experience that began when entering their doors with the immaculately clean windows, full attention to detail, gourmet fare, great service and the well appointed restrooms complete with the most fragrant and high quality hand soap and lotion. The willingness of our... More

It took us a bit more than an hour to get the Shepherdstown but this restaurant was worth the trip. We started with the white pizza, which I highly reccomend, we followed that with the beet saald which was very good. My wife had the sea scallops and I had the salmon and we were both very pleased. Sadly we... More

We had a great time at dinner: we were seated at one of the cozy 2-tops by the front door. I would recommend a reservation- the place was hopping. Our waitress was busy, but attentive. I detected no hints of snobbishness from anyone; I don't know why people say that... Our entrees were very good and came out piping hot.... More

The selections were plentiful, the service excellent and the food superb! Our party of 7 enjoyed a variety of appetizers and entrees in a relaxed atmosphere. The hangar steak was excellent and so was the mozzarella/eggplant appetizer. Other delicious dishes included the swordfish and scallops, broccoli raab and Caesar salad.
