After 27 years of operation, The Pressroom Restaurant Closed on March 5th, 2022.

We are proud of the legacy of The Pressroom as it contributed to keeping downtown Lancaster alive during challenging years. The restaurant opened but four months after Bon-Ton closed the former Watt & Shand department store on Penn Square in 1995. 

COVID-19 has had a significant impact on the restaurant industry and The Pressroom has not been immune. However, the opening of Southern Market and other activity planned for downtown, including the Mosaic project sponsored by Willow Valley, has affirmed that our efforts over the past decades have helped provide a bridge to a vibrant future for downtown Lancaster. 

The Pressroom staff are grateful to our loyal customers. We’ve celebrated so much with you over the years: evenings out with friends, birthdays, engagements, weddings, baby showers, corporate events, family gatherings, and much more. Thank you for sharing all this with us, and we hope you continue to enjoy the excellent dining options that downtown Lancaster has to offer.

We will continue to host private events through April 2nd.
