We went here with 3 other couples for a fun night out.
The ambiance is loud and fun and the decorations are fun and historic with many remnants of the old printing presses located throughout the restaurant.
Service was a bit slow and irradic-our server only took some of our orders and then disappeared for about 10 minutes.

The food and cocktails were good and overall a fun place to go.

I was excited to try the Pressroom since I was told they had gluten-free options. However, their brunch menu is pretty limited if you aren’t ordering something that you can sub a GF bun for. That said, the food was good, though I left hungry due to having ample options.

My issue was with the service. It took forever for our waiter to come over to our table. Once he arrived, he took out food order (made some dopey cracks about GF bread), but not our drink orders. We had to call him back a few times to get enough drinks for our table of four.

Also, on my way out, I noticed one of the managers in the kitchen touching poached eggs with her hands telling the cooks “I’ll bring it out, but I’m repositioning it since it doesn’t look cooked enough.” There’s so much wrong with that, but I’ll leave it to you to unpack that situation.

We were in Lancaster to see A Christmas Carol at the Fulton Theatre. A very short walk from the theatre we stumbled across The Pressroom Restaurant. We didn’t have reservations but there were a few long high tops at the front of the restaurant that they don’t take reservations for - so we grabbed one of those. The atmosphere, our server and our food was fabulous. While we were there carolers stopped by to sing to the diners. It was very festive. Also the women’s restroom was awesome.

attended with friends before a concert, coat service at the door was nice, smallish menu with above average, interesting offerings, creative cocktails were excellent, kale Cesare salad was excellent, fish dish with root vegetables was very good but slightly overcooked, house fresh bread service was a pleasant surprise, short wine list with fair offerings at fair prices, very good service staff that were pleasant and engaging, strongly recommended
