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

My husband and I were staying in Harpers Ferry and decided to take a drive over to Shepherdstown for dinner. The Press Room came highly recommended by friends and we were not disappointed. We ordered the veal and lobster risotto for dinner and the food was scrumptous. We will definitely be back!!

We had dinner. It was wonderful. We had fiddleheads as an appetizer. I never tried them and they were wonderful. Everything is farm to table. They use all fresh ingredients. Our food was great. The service was great. You definitely need a reservation. I would highly recommended this restaurant.
