This place really gives Shepherdstown a terrible reputation. Was there for a meeting at Shepherd University and had family meet us there to celebrate a birthday. While walking down German Street, the Press Room is prevalent. After reading the reviews we thought this was the place to try. The restaurant and bar were empty and it was early. We walked... More

We all loved our dinners at this funky restaurant occupying a former newspaper office. Three of us had dinner here and we all have rave reviews. I had Seared Scallops with Mushroom Risotto and it was all divine! Others ordered Soft-Shelled Crabs and Linguine with Sausage and Artichokes and were equally happy.

Excellent restaurant! Very popular and friendly. The staff and patrons make visitors feel at home. Food and drinks are wonderful. Staff is multitalented. Brian Douglas Albert is a man for all seasons; Annie Wisecarver ...mixologist, artist, world traveler. Chelsea Wallace...student and sweetheart. Not our first visit; hope to have many more!

Portions are large so inquire before ordering too many items! Highly recommend the homemade Pate'. It is listed as an appetizer, but I could only eat half. We also took... More

We enjoy going to Shepardstown WVA to dine because it is only 30 min, from our house. and there is lots of variety. This past April when my wife asked me where I wanted to go for my birthday I said The Press Room. We had eaten there in the past and found it reasonably priced and the food quality... More

My wife and I were in Shepherdstown for a couple days and looked up on Tripadvisor the best restaurants to choose from. It was around 4pm on Friday and I called the Press Room and asked to make a reservation for two for dinner at 5pm. We arrived on time and were promptly seated. Our waitress Susie took our drink...
