Service was fabulous and very speedy, food (burgers, pasta, roasted vegetables, yummy kale salad) delicious. Weather outdoors was perfect. Although we had reserved a table inside, we were able to have a choice of in or out when we got there. The waterfall is a little noisy but wonderful. We are already planning our next evening there.

Restaurant week at the Press Room is not to be missed!! Blackened Sea Bass was awesome. We also discovered that the Cosmo is quite enjoyable. One is not enough, but 2 is too much!

Had a lovely time with my family. Our server (a woman who had her pens laid out in a rainbow) was wonderful. The perfect level of helpful and attentive, very friendly, and engaged in some funny conversation with us. The food was fantastic. I was even able to order a duck leg with my ravioli! We enjoyed our the gravy fries, the Old Fashion cocktail was superb, every loved their meals, and the deserts were very tasty. Everyone loved the vibe of the place as well. It had a slightly upscale feeling (more than a bar/pub), but was very inviting and warm/friendly. They have a brick pizza oven in the back, where the woman who was using it gave us an impromptu (over the top) demonstration which was extremely funny. While the prices weren't terribly high in my opinion (especially compared to other places I've gone). My parents who are very frugal, don't usually go to restaurants like this. They both said they can't wait to come back. So well done Pressroom!

One last note, I was very pleased with how socially distanced the tables were. I've been there before where I didn't think it was terribly crowded, and it was well done. Also the outside seating (even though it's late in the season at this point) looks AMAZING! I can't wait to sit outside with the waterfall and bar.

Reservation was for inside. The food svc was ok. We excepted the place to be way more than it was. Nothing was bad and nothing was great. Food svc and cost was ok. It was a nice place and would recommend if you are looking for a dinner spot that will keep you there a bit too long. Waiter was very nice and polite but kept disappearing. If you do get to try this place try to get outside table as I think it would improve the whole experience! Drinks were very good.

The Pressroom is always a great choice in a city with a lot of excellent food options. We sat outside (had to wait a bit for a table- just bad timing on our part) but everything was excellent including service. Burgers may be the best in town and a lot of variety on the menu. highly recommend

The food was amazing. The server was amazing to take our order. The only downside is that with what I assume is due to less people being allowed, so less staff, the bartenders were the only people providing table service. So the staff taking plates away could not bring you drinks or order you dessert so that left a definite delay in service. I hope that gets addressed because it was a beautiful Saturday evening dinner and we’d love to go back while hoping there are more staff available to help with ordering.
