I made reservations for O'Rorke's with some trepidation after seeing some recent reviews. We met friends for dinner as Gettysburg was a good midway point. The place is ion a good location just off the main strip between the town and battlefield.
The seating area itself is very small and the staff has be very skilled to navigate around the tables. Lots of old wood and low ceilings do give the place the feel of an Irish pub. We had a great table next to the huge old fireplace. Our server, Paige, was extremely attentive and helpful in picking menu items. Service was not fast but we were not in any hurry either. I am glad we made reservations because the line was out the door
I thought the appetizers were a bit pricey until I saw them being served to other tables and realized how huge they were. My wife had the shepherd pie potato skins appetizer as her dinner and still had a hard time finishing them. Be aware that the menu is not Irish pub grub. One friend got a salmon quesadilla, and the taco salad looks like it could feed a family.
There was an extremely loud group in the bar when we arrived but it appeared the manager said something to them because they quickly quieted down.
Not a great amount of beers on tap, which surprised me. However, a nice dining experience and we would probably go back again if we are in Gettysburg.
