“Great piano trio”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

We went on a Wednesday night - one of two nights in the week where the restaurant features live jazz.

There is a separate bar area screened off from the main restaurant space. Food was pretty good - varied, interesting menu with some good wines to choose from. Service was very good - we went with the waiter's mains recommendations and weren't disappointed.

Best part of the evening though was the jazz trio - very good - excellent piano player.

“Always delightful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

The Pressroom has a wonderful and varied menu, excellent service, and a great bar. It's perfect for a quick bite or a special occasion, and you can snag a discount if you're going to see something at the nearby Fulton Theatre before or after your meal. You won't be dissapointed!

“had the pizza it was yum!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

needed to grab a bite after a concert at the Ware Center at Millersville Univ. Most places were closed. But it was suggested we head over to the Pressroom. Food was great and so was the service. We plan to go back.

“A classic well maintained downtown gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

This is just a block from the downtown Marriott. Named the Pressroom because it is next to the newspaper. Great old bar with live entertainment (not every night). They also have outdoor seating in the lovely corridor just next to the restaurant that is used in the summer. Whenever I stay in Lancaster, I stop by to feel some history. Reminds me of some nice old Georgetown restaurants.

“Nice downtown location and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

This restaurant is located right down the street from he city square. They have a very nice bar, and the atmosphere is very enjoyable. There is a private room that can be reserved in the back of the restaurant for private parties and events as well. We have always enjoyed the food and the service has been wonderful.
