Fresh bread, fresh oysters. Spaghetti Bolognese was rich and delicious. Seafood stew was great-- swordfish, mussels, clams and a hint of tarragon. Had a nice Cab with dinner. Creme Brulee was worth every calorie. Wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable. will definitely go again!

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.

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.

Cozy, well-run restaurant, long-standing servers and kitchen staff are a great team, delivering friendly, professional (but not overly formal) service, consistently good food.
