I have had numerous meals here. Dinners are consistent, high quality. Nothing in the area competes with this restaurant in terms of good food and consistency.

We love The Press Room because from start to finish our meal and experience are excellent. The restaurant is charming- exposed brick walls and friendly staff. The menu offers something for just about everyone- and specials are interesting additions.

We really enjoyed our meal here. We weren't starving, but were hungry and wanted something light. It was about 8pm and we were amazed at how many places in Sharpsburg and Shepherdstown and Boonsboro were closed...so truly we didn't have that many choices. I can't...More

When we went, honestly, I didn't see kids in the restaurant, that's not to say they are not welcome. I did overhear a guest talking to a waiter about dietary concerns, he told guest he would check with the Chef, so I think... More
