Press room is a bit pricier & more upscale than others on the same road. Cute lil place. Service was great by Blake. I ordered an espresso and cannoli. Really decent cannoli cream especially for a rural place like this! Going back for a meal...More

Good, maybe very good but not great, a thoughtful, imaginative and rather good if eclectic wine list for a small town restaurant, exceptionally good service. Dinner for 4, including wine but not tip, was just over $200. Would I go there again? Yes.
