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.

Fantastic experience overall. The food was excellent! We enjoyed the spanokopi and a greek salad along with a filet that was prepared just right and the crab cake entrees. The warm wash clothes and sorbet were added touches that enhanced the overall experience! We will be back!

The only thing better than the food was the service! Our server Nathan was attentive and went out of his way to make sure our Anniversary dinner felt special. We can't wait to go back!

PS - the ambience was perfect!

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.

Excellent quality of food and service! It was clear that each order was individually prepared. It took just a little longer than your average restaurant but was well worth it!

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.

While our food was delayed, our server was great... apologizing and giving us two complimentary draft beers.

My husband couldn't finish his dinner.. one of the night's specials. very unusual for him to need a "to go" box.

Nice to not have TVs in view... relatively quiet dining experience..

Our first dining here.. and we'll be back!

I viewed menu online but the menu was completely different a lot less selections. I was told this was due to New Years Eve but why can't you put that on their website. My filet mignon had a good taste but like the mashed potatoes warm to cold. l felt it wasn't worth the hassle to send it back. It's overpriced.
