Had dinner here 2 days before Christmas. The food was very good and we had a great server. Probably the best restaurant in the town. Highly recommended.

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.
