Now that we have blasted the very poor "EJ's Grill", we will contrast it with a very GOOD restaurant; The Orchards. Excellent food, nice ambiance, very competent staff are all on display here. We have been several times since we moved to Chambersburg and have not been disappointed.

When we had gone for dinner, the drinks were well made, the table settings are nice linen, and they even bring out little extra appetizers between courses with the compliments of the chef... and, oh yes, they don't use cheap plastic for condiments such as butter (or at lunch for that matter where I had a simple hamburger that had nice little special plates for even the ketchup and mayonaise!).

The Orchards is a large place with several nice dining venues. We like the "Civil War" Lounge, which is cozy, with low lighting (here the table candles are plentiful and are actually lit), giving off a very warm and inviting glow to the room.

So far, the Orchards is Numero Uno on our Chambersburg restaurant list. The Copper Kettle is less fancy but also has very good food and an extremely friendly vibe. We will keep you posted if we find any other really worthwhile places.

The lounge area is wonderful; service is fantastic.
Specials revised bi-weekly. Menu now offering an identified healthy option with calories named for this item.
Many desserts are made in-house; creme brulee always excellent. Wine selection is good.

My Girlfriend and I and 5 other guest had dinner on 2/2/2013 for a special birthday party
we ordered drinks rt aprox... 7:10 pm The waiter then took our food order at 7:20 pm.We recieved our appetizer at aprox 7:50 pm. We waited for our dinner to come and we asked twice where is our dinner and they stated it was coming However it was Now 9:00 pm and we were still waiting for it. We ask for the manager and she stated she was sorry for the delay. She stated they had a banquet and was taking care of them also. When we got our dinner, Just about all of the servings were cold. Some were taken back and reheated and other guest decided to eat it cold. We were all disappointed with the service and the way were treated. The owner of the business did speak with one of our guest and offered a gift card however she should have gave the whole party a discounted meal or gift card for all of the problems we encountered. I personaly
will never return to this place I feel this review is accurate and the Management should prepare for more help in advance when holding a banquet and not let other guest left out in the cold litterely.
