O'Rorke's has really gone down the crapper with their food. I had their salad topped with steak slices. The steak was so chewy that it took me 10 minutes to eat one bite. It's pretty dismal when the salad was better than the steak. There...is also something amiss with their french fries. The fries I had were crispy at first, and then after 15 minutes, the fries turned into cold soggy flavorless pieces of potato with a hint of freezer burn. McDonalds fries are better than this. What a shame! This place used to be good.More

The menu offers variety. I had a crab cake salad with Old Bay ranch dressing - very tasty. (That's :Maryland.") Husband had Irish sausage on a roll with fries (thus, "Irish"). Enjoyed it. We were seated quickly despite busy lunchtime; server very friendly and efficient....Seating is inside and outside, weather permitting. Alcoholic beverages available. Physically challenged persons would find entering and exiting a challenge. It's a noisy place, but I didn't mind. Live entertainment is on weekends.More

The server was great, but the food was so/so. I wish that I knew I was ordering salad. I genuinely thought I was ordering chicken with a side of salad, but it was salad with chicken on top.

I was a little disappointed this visit. Have eaten here in the past and the food was much better. The atmosphere is light and friendly.

We were quite hungry and since many restaurants in Gettysburg were closed the night we were there we were very happy to get a table here without waiting. Our server was very pleasant and the honored our request to sit at a table outside in...the shade. The veggie burger ws very good as were the salads. We all enjoyed our meal and would return.More

We both had the Reuben sandwiches, which were so delicious. Our waitstaff was super friendly. We highly recommend the homemade chips for the side. We heard the fried pickles are awesome but we did not order them. Fantastic corned beef and sauerkraut.

This place was packed the night we went. The poor hostess was moving non-stop! Still we were seated within 10 minutes. Service was incredible even with how busy they were. The food was delicious! The menu has a number of offerings that are beyond what...you would expect at a bar and grill type restaurant. Everything our party had was just incredible including the fish and chips and the mac&cheese. I would highly recommend this place if you are in Gettysburg!More

I can't remember exact prices for items, but my husband and I both had large portions of food, no appetizers or desserts and our bill was around $40.
