I made a reservation with Open Table. However the Orchards Restaurant never received my reservation. Just happen to be passing by and stopped in to see what table arrangement they had for us (as I wanted a private room). They were all booked for a private room. They generously provided a table that was set away from all the other tables.

So don't know what happened?????

Our experience was great. Our only complaint was the choice of music that was played over the intercom. Not our choice.

We had a delicious meal and I had the coconut shrimp. I would not order it again though. Very little flavor to the dipping sauce or the shrimp. But I love everything else I have ever eaten there

Food and ambiance were fine but there’s something wrong with execution here. The waiter was pleasant but obviously not trained. I don’t blame the waiter I blame his management. There was no emphasis on service whatsoever and sadly it ruined a nice evening for us.

The Orchards has always been a wonderful dining experience for us. This past weekend was no exception. Our food was fantastic, and the drinks were perfect! The service was exceptional. The entire staff was very attentive to making sure that we were well taken care of. One of the best restaurants in Chambersburg!

Fast friendly service, It was a birthday dinner for me with my wife and I invited a friend and his wife. They had a nice wine selection and were very knowledgeable about it as well. My friends wife and my wife are pleged with food allergies so going to dinner can be a bit challenging for the servers. These guys were so patient with them. it was just beautiful to see such kindness. We all enjoyed our dinner and drinks with a great dessert
This will definitely be on my favorites list and I highly recommend it to anyone that wants a little bit more then the average restaurant.

We had family in town and wanted to take them somewhere but didn’t want to deal with to much noise. We had an amazing time here,. Quiet, and ideal for a more personal night out. The food was amazing, and our waiter was absolutely wonderful. Our family has already requested we make reservations for the next time they come!

Food was good but not excellent. Food value was poor in my opinion. 60$ for a very thin and fatty delmonico steak and maybe 1-2 oz of lobster meat.

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!

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.
