We were referred here by our inn keeper and were delighted that we came. Reservations are a must. as the restaurant is popular and seating capacity is limited. The service is hospitable and knowledgeable, not to mention professional but not stuffy. The food is excellent, be it the duck or the rockfish. The wine list is reasonable both for its... More

The server, Brian, was excellent. We were a party of five, he made some good recommendations on food and wine. The food was really, really good, and a few of my party had been there twice in the same week, because the food was good. I would drive back to Shepherdstown again, just for dinner here.

We love the specials here, especially the fresh seafood. On this visit my wife had a perfectly cooked swordfish steak with the sides substituted as she requested. I had the seafood stew with clams, mussels, shrimp and cod in a delicious broth. It was a busy night, but our reservation was honored with a great table and professional service. Consistently...

We are relocating to the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia and we wanted to try local recommended restaurants. It was a slow Monday night so we were seated right away with a cozy table overlooking German Street in historic Shepherdstown. Our server was very attentive and pleasant. She made sure we understood what we were ordering and did a fantastic... More

This place came with a recommendation. News flash! Save yourself! The bartender poured the weakest drink and the server could care less! I say that as she greeted us with "what do you want to drink!" Not hello... welcome or go elsewhere. Super let let down. If you don't care about hygiene, a good IPA or nice drink...then this is... More

Always spectacular food and even better service. The customer always comes first at the Press Room. Seafood stew with fennel special was superb. Exciting appetizers and the Lavendar Creme Brûlée dessert are standouts among any restaurants! Laurie our server was personable, knowledgeable, and extra attentive as usual! Don't miss the experience here.

We had an enjoyable dinner on our last night in WV. The scallops and pot roast were delicious and service was excellent. Highly recommend for quiet dinner in nice atmosphere.
