Before an evening at the Charlestown race track, my wife and I drove out to Shepherdstown for a meal at the Press Room. We had an excellent meal - a fig based appetizer and we shared our shordfish and shrimp pasta meals. We ate at the bar and the bartender was very friendly. Call early to get reservations.

The Press Room is more of an upscale dining option. The food is always great. I've never been disappointed. I always order something new off the menu and I have yet to regret it. They also have a good wine, beer, and cocktail offerings.

Our trip to the Contemporary American Theater Festival this coincided with my birthday this year, and my husband and I and friends had dinner that night at the Press Room before heading to a play. We chose the restaurant based on TripAdvisor recommendations and were not disappointed. Two of us had soft-shell crabs as an entree, and they were outstanding... More

The Press Room in Shepherdstown, WV, was recommended by our BnB Hosts (Antietam Overlook Farm, Keedysville, MD) and for good reason. Maybe only 15 tables, so the attention from the staff was excellent. The attractive small bar faces one of the store front windows. Wine list was OK and reasonably priced. Menu was creative. My wife had a seasonal berry-adorned... More

The penne pasta with salmon was average, and the figs wrapped in bacon were drowning in balsamic vinegar.

We went on a busy Thursday evening and had to wait about 20 minutes for a table, but it was worth the wait. The shrimp and scallops pasta as well as the chicken dinner were both good.

I am out of town for a week and tried this restaurant on my first night. What a find! Go there and eat now! The duck was magnificent. I sat at the bar and started with a glass of wine. Lots of locals. The first courses coming out were beautiful and I could not ask for a better meal. Everything... More
