“Good food but not much atmosphere.”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

Thought it would have a lot of historical feel to the restaurant since it was in the heart of the city but was a little disappointed. Good food and selections though.

“It was ok”
Reviewed May 17, 2014

Service was slow and not very friendly. Food was just so/so. Prime location, would go again but not my first choice.

“Lots of good food at a very reasonable price”
Reviewed May 16, 2014 via mobile

We ate there twice when visiting the National Park and would definately go back again. The hotel front desk recommended it for a quick dinner after traveling most of the day. Expecting the usual pub food we were very pleasantly surprised. The food was really good and overly plentiful. We noticed that a lot of locals ate there and can understand why. Not only was the food and service great but the prices were very reasonable. The next day we stopped in for lunch and once again, happy with our choice. Definitely one of the best pubs we've been to for grabbing some real good chow and a beer or two.

“Large portions.”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

I hadn't been in O 'Rorkes in A few years. We come to Gettysburg a lot and usually hit our some old favorites. We also like to change it up at least once A trip. so we came back in here. The service was great and considering how packed the place was the service was commendable. Our meals arrived quickly and was surprised how large the portions were. I guess we have another place to add to our list of places to go when we come back again.

“Have had better meals here in the past.”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

This meal just did not match up to prior visits in the past several years. The buffalo wrap was just not as good as I had hoped, and the fries, while plentiful were underwhelming. The lobster bisque was just average as well. I hope I just happened to hit a bad night, or perhaps they have different cooks than during my prior visits.
