Unexpected Delight

I had scallops and my wife had salmon. Both were pleasantly good. The sides were uninspiring but, for Chambersburg, you're unlikely to do much better. The rural setting simply isn't going to support truly fine dining. As for cocktails, the Grey Goose martini was a bit of a disappointment, but the... read more

One of our favorite places to eat in our hometown. Excellent, fresh food that is prepared beautifully and tastes wonderful. Delicious drinks and desserts. The atmosphere is very nice. We especially like the Civil War Lounge on Friday evenings. Our ten year old daughter is a "foodie" and this is her number one choice.

We went to the lounge portion of the restaurant only to find a sports bar atmosphere and steep tab on small portions.

This restaurant was recommended by the hotel we were staying at. My wife and I were both happy with our meal and the service. We would definitely go there again if we were in the area.

We went there because I had a good experience with the restaurant before. Last night was something out of a situation comedy (if you have a sense of humor). Waitress told us she was new and was not really familiar with some items in rest. Gave us a list of Greek specials for the night in addition to the menu.... More

As the owner of the Orchards, I would like to sincerely apologize for the negative experience you had at our restaurant. Having read your review, I am appalled by the treatment you experienced. This does not reflect the high standards we held here at The Orchards restaurant for the past 20 years. In your review, you stated that a newly... More

Thank you to all of your kind wait staff. Prices were a bit high but you get what you pay for. Beverage selection was very nice as well. Will be back next time!

Came here on a recommendation and needless to say was not that impressed. Service was a mediocre as the food, and the wine list was minimal and way overpriced. Will need to look elsewhere for dinner next time in town

We ate there on a weeknight on a trip to Gettysburg. There were few people in the restaurant so perhaps we got special attention, but the Chef sent out some amuse bouche plates and the waitress was very attentive. The food was very, very good. I had the rack of lamb and it was a substantially larger portion than I... More

We went for the seafood buffet and were really disappointed in the selection. There were very few food items. For the price, I expected much more of a variety of foods. Besides the few seafood options, only a salad and baked potato were offered. The fish was spongy, and the crab cakes had little flavor and were bready. Service was... More
