This was the first time we ate at The Orchards and we really enjoyed it. My husband ordered the PETITE prime rib and it filled his entire dinner plate and was done to his liking. The salmon was very good but could have used a little more sauce. The sorbet and chocolate covered almonds after dinner were awesome and hit the spot since we were too full to enjoy desert from the menu. We will definitely be going back.

We tried this restaurant, located roughly twenty miles from our home, because my new hairdresser told me that her husband works as a chef there. I made a reservation for The Orchards online through OpenTable.
We barely ever eat dinner out, because there is a dearth of decent restaurants in Hagerstown. MD, where we live. So, this was a bit of an adventure for my husband and me. We were not disappointed.
There are two restaurants within this complex - both feature the same menu. The Orchards is the more staid, quiet one, while the Relax Lounge is a fairly noisy venue with a bar. We were glad to be seated on the Orchards side! (Although The Relax Lounge looks like fun for a younger crowd on a Friday night.)
Our waiter, Peter, was wonderful. It was “Greek Week,” and we shared an excellent appetizer of spanakopita and a Greek Platter featuring Greek meatballs, rack of lamb, and grilled chicken kabobs. All was very good, the lamb was cooked superbly, rare enough, but not bloody, just the way we like it.
This restaurant is not super cheap, but it was worth it.
One suggestion: The cocktail, wine and beer lists should include prices.
We plan on returning to The Orchards soon.

Only part of the meal that was disappointing was the Greek salad. Dressing was not flavorful, missing kalamata olives, and feta. The rest of the meal was amazing drinks, appetizers, and entrees!

We went for our wedding anniversary. I ordered the broiled seafood platter and my husband ordered the special of sirloin with mashed potatoes. Everything was incredible! Our cocktails were wonderful, and our bartender Shane has the best personality and is very skilled at his craft!
They had live music in the lounge which is where we ate. She was fantastic!
I highly recommend the orchards and if you can sit in the lounge near the bar! The atmosphere is very relaxing and cozy!

They said they never got any reservation for us. We made the reservation thru Open Table.
We were seated however, at a terrible table.

This was our first time to dine at Orchards. We went for my husband's 62nd birthday. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there, food was wonderful. We decided to make it our special destination place and try to go every couple of months.

The Orchards consistently has very good food and service. There is a very nice variation of items on the menu but not an overwhelming never ending menu that you find in sone restaurants. No trouble recommending this restaurant to others.

The food was very meh for the price. My $38 steak which was supposed to be Prime Aged was very supermarket quality, tough and flavorless. My shrimp cocktail was 4 overboiled, chewy medium-sized shrimp and watery cocktail sauce. The rest at our table were unimpressed. The meatloaf was absolutely inedible and terrible, as per my GF. The desserts save this review from 1-star land, they were quite good. We were there Saturday night at 8 pm so you can't really say this was the head chef's night off type food. I say skip it, find a better place for the about 45 bucks a person you will spend for appetizers, entrees, and dessert.

We were hesitant to going there for it’s not our usual dining restaurant to go to. We were on our 10th anniversary outing and decided somewhere nice would be a change. We loved every minute of being there. Seated immediately, greeted respectful by the staff that seated us and by Cody, our most gracious server. He made us feel welcome and offered suggestions to us for the meal and during the meal the kitchen offered tidbit and trials of different foods and desserts. That was awesome. We felt welcomed from the time we walked thru the door, til we left for home a while later. The meal wasn’t rushed, we actually enjoyed the slowness of how much time was between each course. I said to my wife I wished we could do that every weekend!!! It was so enjoyable. Our steaks cooked perfectly, our sides tasty, and dessert, well we took it home to enjoy and it was scrumptious. Strawberry shortcake, so simple but delicious. Take time and visit, we will be back in the future for sure.

Another enjoyable dining experience. I felt totally safe dining because of the precautions
in place by the restaurant and adherence by the other diners-- masks , social distancing,
hand sanitizer available, etc. I thought at the time what a shame that a compliant restaurant like the Orchards would have to close to indoor dining two days later. I will continue to support the Orchards and a few other local restaurants.

Service was very good but the was not. The food tasted like it was make ahead and reheated. It also seemed like the food was plated way before it was served. The cake was dry like it was cut and sitting for a while.

There's food, meals and dining. The Orchards is dining. Excellent service. Attentive yet subtle. The meal was tastefully and timely spaced for enjoyment of each segment. Drinks were fresh and delicious. The staff was courteous and intuitive. The sirloins were well received. My only question was the prime rib was grilled rather than roasted. Still delicious, just unexpected. Stick around to the end, they will surprise you.
