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.

Went on a Monday night and needed reservations. One of the few restaurants open on Monday. Food was great (had the duck). Prices are reasonable. Clientele is primarily 40 and up.

We had dinner at Bistro 112 at the suggestion of our host at the Antietam Inn B&B. I had a Oven Squash Cannalloni and my wife had Salmon. The prices are reasonable for the quality of food presented

The fare was Italian but offered unique dishes including Barra cheese in an appetizer, edible blossoms on plates to make a lovely presentation, and a salad of gorgonzola custard with arugula, candied walnuts and...More

I know there are not a lot of options in Shepherdstown but I do not understand the hype with this place. First, it is really stuffy. I could not believe the level of attitude we received because we dared to patronize their establishment with children...More

My husband and I ate dinner at The Press Room on a Thursday evening and I was glad we had made a reservation! Small restaurant that quickly fills up, but very quaint and cozy inside. We stayed at a local B&B, which was only about...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
