Great food, but took quite awhile and one member of our party actually had to leave with “to-go” box after waiting 40+ minutes for her meal

Fantastic service and great ambiance. Unfortunately, the food didn’t back it up. We went for brunch right when they opened and had a very disappointing and cold waffle.

Grilled chicken undercooked, waitress did not check back for a really long time after replacement came from kitchen... AND she was training someone! She missed an opportunity to show newbie how good customer service is done! Manager made it right, and in a kind manner. Disappointing as the restaurant had come highly recommended.

Pork steak was perfectly cooked, good flavor. Seafood stew was ok. Service was acceptable, but don’t treat us differently because I’m eating with my 12yo son. Good atmosphere. Sales tax in Bentonville is high as a giraffe’s tail so adding a rocks charge on top of a $15 pour? It’s not that fancy.

Don’t know why it’s taken me so long to write a review of Pressroom, but it is hands down one of our favorite restaurants in Bentonville.

My husband and I relocated to Bville about a year ago and Pressroom has become one of our favorites for weekend brunch, weekday lunch and weekend dinner (I usually cook dinner during the week).

At brunch, don’t miss the Ham
Benedict, Press-trami Hash and War Eagle Mill Grits and Grillades with Poached Eggs.

By way of background, War Eagle Mill is located in War Eagle, AR in a picturesque setting on War Eagle Creek, and currently functions as an undershot grist mill with a restaurant and store. A mill has been operated on the site since 1832, destroyed three times and last rebuilt in 1973. Worth a visit if you have the time during your travels.

At lunch, hubby’s fave is the Press-trami sandwich. His dinner favorite is the grilled ribeye and frites, and mine is the fish which is usually seared with crispy skin and presented with a beautiful melange of seasonal veggies, a starch and a yummy sauce (last summer it was green goddess, this fall, it’s fresh herbs). Oysters of the day with mignonette and charred lemon are an excellent starter when in season.

Don’t miss the first-rate, handcrafted cocktails.

Pressroom is a great place to hang out, eat, and see the lights of downtown Bentonville. Only quibble I had was everyone agreed the food was a little too salty.

Overall excellent!

Spent the weekend in Bentonville to celebrate a birthday. The Pressroom was a fun restaurant. We walked from the hotel in the rain with our BIG umbrella. Our server was just the right level of attentive. The restaurant was busy but not crowded. The appetizer was super - Smoked Salmon Spread. My cocktail - Lemon Tree was fun. Entrees were great and dessert and coffee topped off a fun evening.

My husband and I really enjoyed our first visit to the Pressroom. We both had salads - which were fresh and good portion sizes - but we say lots of well presented, heartier plates being delivered to other table. One of the other things we definitely appreciated about this restaurant is that the tables are not crammed together. It looks like you can choose to sit at a "community" table but we had a stand-alone table that had nice space around it - making us feel like we weren't sharing a quiet dinner with the table next to us. Thank you for that and for the quality menu!

For 5 meals, we had two distinct entrees ordered ( trout and steak) - for 3 people food was under cooked and for 2 over cooked. Never asked if food was okay, each sent plates back with less than half of plate cleared hoping kitchen might notice and see there was problem.

Long waits between visits by server and restaurant was not busy, our first pick had an hour wait but we booked here as secondary when walked out of first pick.

Also doh d restaurant does not give open table points, one restaurant visit points is worth $1 to me, so having zero will influence booking again. Oh and not being able to finish a raw steak.

Fourth time to pressroom and it was very disappointing. Service was fine - but food was just not good. I ordered the shrimp and grits - shrimp were really over cooked and rubbery, cauliflower grits lacked any flavor at all (had to ask for salt and pepper) and the texture was too gritty. My daughter had the smoked chicken which had good smoked flavor but was also very over cooked and dry, and our friend had the trout which she said was also bland and uninteresting. I’ve had the Brussels sprouts before but this time they were barely done - no char or toast notes to give them more flavor. The mushroom pasta had a strange bitter aftertaste...we couldn’t figure out how noodles, mushrooms and cheese could be ruined - but they weren’t good. If that had been my first time to pressroom I would never go back. Need to work on kitchen training....or maybe fine tune this menu. I’m sure our waitress heard us complaining but she never asked anything about how our meal was...and I’m not one to try to get comped, so giving the feedback here instead.

Pressroom is one of my favorites. The food is always very good. However, our service was not great, and this is not the first time I have had poor service from the same server. It took a long time for him to get to our table, and then he forgot our appetizer. He brought us free dessert, but we felt overlooked the whole meal. I will continue to visit Pressroom, but hope to get better service in the future.

Excellecent food and service. The Rabbit and Rye were outstanding and the "Old Fashion" was the best I have had at any restaurant with the addition of the Luxardo cherries.
