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.

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

This is our 9th or 10th visit to Shepardstown for the CATF and at some point over the years we discovered the Press Room. The food is always great, the selection is good and the bartenders are attentive. We always sit at the bar because reservations are not something we get around to doing very often and for just two...

Dining with a group, however small (5) can be a challenge for a small restaurant. We were advised to set aside 2 hrs and this worked out perfectly. For the first time in several years alternating among the handful of Shepherdstown restaurants open for Sunday dinner during the annual summer theatre festival, our group had time to order & eat...

We have been eating in this restaurant for many years during our CATF weekend. The food is consistently good as is the professional friendly service. The menu is basically American fare.

I always try to stop in here when I am in the area. the staff is not only nice, they like to get to know you. the food once again was to much on the plate, but that is not a complaint at all. Such a wonderful area and wonderful friendly people.

One of the best meals we've had in quite some time. I had the scallops with risotto and my wife the duck. Both were superb and the server was excellent as well. Very highly recommended.

Found this little gem of a restaurant during a one-night stay, and was pleasantly surprised to find this level of food and service in a small WV college town. Definitely upscale menu and good friendly service to match. Small place; seats about 60 diners, and fills up fast. We had reservations and were promptly seated. Very pleased with our selections...
