A good night with great food...
A good night with great food... We had the cheese plate to start which had a nice array of cheeses with some capers,grapes, and berries along with a raisin bread and house made apple butter. Our entrees included the special of the night, a seafood stew in tomato broth with mussels, scallops, shrimp and fish. Steak au poivre, cooked to perfections with the classic peppercorn and brandy sauce. I had the crabcake, made with all lump crabmeat and virtually no filler, topped with a red pepper relish which makes you wonder why people even think about putting tartar sauce on a crabcake. Dessert was fluffernutter creme brûlée and pot de creme, two extraordinarily decadent ways to end the evening. Food was fantastic, can't wait to go back!

In Lancaster to teach a graduate
In Lancaster to teach a graduate course, I asked for restaurant recommendations. My students highly recommended The Pressroom. I was no disappointed. Great salad, excellent prime rib and delicious cobbler for desert. Our waiter, Morgan, was knowledgeable, helpful and friendly - very nice guy! I'd go back!

As always, I enjoyed our experience
As always, I enjoyed our experience at the Pressroom. I was disappointed that they had changed the menu because I was looking forward to their wonderful chicken crepes. Hope they put it back on the list or make it upon request. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We took two other couples
We took two other couples from out of town to dinner on Sat evening. The restuarant was busy. In spite of that, we were seated promptly. Our waiter came to our table in short order, took our drink orders. He returned with beverages and took our dinner orders. Our food was brought in a timely fashion. We had a variety of orders, soups, entrees, pizzas. Each course was served at the right time, at the right temperature, and was delicious. Everyone enjoyed their food and total experience. This was a well prepared meal with very good service from our waiter, Bryan.

The Pressroom is front page worthy!
Great to once again dine @ Pressroom in Steinman Park. Menu is full of healthy, fresh and sumptious items. Server was patient and customer focused. They even inculded a discount for Fulton Theatre goers! Thanks. The pizza was delicious, simple but fresh tasting. Cobb Salads were a delightful mix of grilled sweetcorn, spring greens, tomatos and more. The Rhubarb vinegrette was a nice touch. we've dined here many times over the past 20+ years...They've never done outdoor metropolitan dining better!

Nice atmosphere, good service, great food. Very comfortable. Nice bar with live music was a nice plus. Outdoor area with large waterfall for outdoor dining.
Good for groups too.

Very Good Chow... Slooooow Kitchen
This is a great choice for a casual lunch or dinner. I ike the old time atmosphere. Great list of beers... food is very good. The bartender we had before sitting at our table was excellent, great service. Everything our group had was good, but the kitchen was stressed with a packed patio full of diners, and it took forever for our food to appear.... like 40 minutes. When it finally came, it was very good. Recommended, esp. if you're staying at the Marriott hotel, which is only 1/2 block away. NOTE: we preferred the main dining room, but there is a very large outdoor patio that is very popular in the good weather.

Always a pleasure.......
......to eat at the Pressroom. Great service, great presentation, great food, great location, lovely, small outdoor park beside the restaurant. Great for a date, and a night at the Theater, just around the corner.

This is just a great place. Really pleasant staff, atmosphere, menu choices... if we have a moment where we want to just go out without a fuss, but with the expectation of an excellent meal, we drop in here

Great Downtown Find
My group went to the Pressroom on a Friday night and made reservations online easily. The courtyard was beautiful and the food delicious. The only downside was the rather limited menu. Will return!

Unambitious menu, but quality food
The menu is pretty standard fare, but all our selections were well prepared, tastefully presented, and served piping hot. The pizzas had an excellent crust, and an excellent fennel sausage. Noisy, but not unexpected at 8:00 PM on a Saturday night.

We enjoyed a delicious lunch - and the soups were excellent! Would come back for dinner or drinks.

Excellent Food and Service!
My wife and I had a great time. It has been a few years since we went to the Pressroom but after this last experience we will be sure to be back soon!

Menu is limited but food is very good. Our waiter was very attentive and right at the beginning asked if we had somewhere else to go that night so he could establish how quickly we needed our food and check at the end.

Delicious but chilly
The Pressroom Restaurant offers delicious food presented beautifully. The chef uses local resources as much as possible and creates wonderful combinations. Our only complaint was that the dining room was rather chilly.

When the "house" Merlot is
When the "house" Merlot is excellent, and the food is trending... you are in for a treat. Live jazz music... a good spot for anyone that likes a good time out.

Unique Downtown restaurant
This restaurant is in an older converted building designed with a newspaper motif (owners have an ownership connection to the local newspaper). Very good food (I had the filet) and very good service. Nice friendly atmosphere. Several groups were present and having a great time. Only about a block from the Lancaster Marriott, if you're staying there.
