Burger special was good but not as good as I have had elsewhere in the county. I would go again. Everyone else got the French dpi and couldn't say enough about it.

We have been eating here for many years during the Contemporary American Theater Festival in July (must reserve during this period). A somewhat ambitious, upscale menu unusual in a small town; scallops and fish can be especially good. Kitchen and wait staff are attuned to theater curtain times.

My husband and I recently moved to Shepherdstown and were looking for a nice dinner out for Christmas. Wonderful food and excellent service. Very pleased with our meal.

I've been here every time I've been in Shepherdstown. The staff remember me and are very helpful. Pasta dishes and the Sunday brunch are especially good here.

After seeing a very good play we dined here. The atmosphere was quiet, great service and great food. The menu is adventurous and all our selections were superb. It was city food at small town prices. Go there!

I give this place an average because I think the waitress just was off that night. She served my tuna steak way over done....like done done. Usually, I eat a rare to medium rare tuna steak and my wife's lamb chop's were over done. We politely told the waitress because we want to make this place better and not looking... More

Our server greeted us quickly, and although busy with several tables, was attentive throughout. other servers, and the maitre d' pitched in too. Started... More

My three friends and I had a wonderful brunch--beautifully served, ample quantity, and amazingly well priced. No drinks on Sunday until 1:00pm, but I suspect due to the blue laws. Our waitress was especially accommodating and put our flowers on ice while we attended the theatre.

While cycling the C and O canal we stayed two nights in Shepherdstown. We ate dinner at the Press Room both evenings. Both meals were uniformly terrific, and the service was attentive. The first evening we started by sharing a gorgonzola custard salad. For entrees one of us had a lobster risotto and the other had scallops with wild mushroom... More

Beautiful decor. Fine food. Attention to local suppliers, natural herbs and flavors. Adaptable for special needs (gluten-free, no sugar, etc.) Expensive.
