Not as good as the hype...

Only ate there once but was disappointed in the quality and taste of the food especially for the price. Staff was friendly, certainly clean and welcoming.

Top-notch service, wonderful menu for very special occasions. My husband proposed here on Valentine's Day 2007! There is also a nice bar side with live bands. Outside on the patio is the place to be in the summer months! We have also been here for large birthday celebrations and wedding receptions! Highly recommended!

It's not the best and the prices are high. Also too dark to be able to read the menu. There are better places.

We brought some friends here for a thank you dinner after they helped us out with a big project. We were hoping that everything would be first class from start to finish, and it was: Well made cocktails; entrees prepared just right; yummy desserts; and first class service. We would rate The Orchards as "the best in the 'burg."

We sat on the Relax Inn side of the restaurant. The beef filet appetizers are out of this world! Small portions and a bit expensive (it is a filet!) but absolutely perfect! Oysters Rockefeller were tasty, but I've had better. The wings are great and the menu has some not run-of-the-mill flavors from which to choose. We went for a... More

We like the ambiance of the lounge area with comfortable booths and nice candle light. The food and service are top-notch, something that's not easy to find in this area! As a vegetarian, I enjoy the delicious home made daily soup offerings (eggplant and corn chowder). They have a few vegetarian options, mostly side dishes, all tasty, but could offer... More

Visiting Chambersburg for business and looking for a restaurant that was not a chain, which I frequented too many nights in a row, someone suggested The Orchard. The atmosphere was lovely, the food was delicious and the waitress was very attentive. I will certainly return on my next trip!

We have always been very pleased with the Orchard. The service is always very good and the food is excellent as well. For some reason we have found that our experience in eating in the bar area (comfortable booths) has always been a little bit better than eating in the main dining rooms. The chicken en chemise is excellent, but... More

we waited on a Thursday nite at least 15 minutes for the drink. The server kept disappearing. There were only 10 people in this very large restaurant, where did she go? Dinner came and was ok- nothing special. When it came to getting the check, the sever disappeared again. We went to the hostess desk- no one there. C'mon- do... More

Michele A, General Manager at The Orchards Restaurant, responded to this review

I am so sorry for the service that you received the night that you decided to visit our restaurant. There is absolutely no excuse for the service that you had to endure. It is certainly not our standards to have a customer wait for anything, be it a drink or your tab. The management and server dropped the ball on... More
