The spot
This place is tiny and really stinks like stale beer and cigarettes but I love coming here. Staff is the sh*t and the drinks are always good. Little pricey. If they could get a bigger spot, id always go here for drinks...just no food

could use some doors
Last time I was at orky's they didn't have doors on the bathroom stalls. I felt dirty if anything. GROSS

once many moons ago
a while back this was the bar to go to. Bartenders were nice, atmosphere rocked, but the price isn't worth it anymore. Its a shame, but hot point wins. Orky's hardly ever has the grill on and their "specials" are the every day price of the other bars.

Stay Away!
This place is a haven for the most bottomed-out alcoholic,drug addicted, STD spreading dregs in the area. Uneducated, ex-convicts, future convicts, junkys, and otherwise backwards thinking people who like to wear their hats backwards just keep pumping quarters into the juke box to play the same three kid rock songs until they throw up at the bar or beat each other up with pool sticks. Go if you like.. but I hope your immunizations are up to date.

There's positives and negatives
I used to go to this place back in the day, but now I go when it's convenient to my friends. It really is a sausage fest, they don't serve food and their specials arenít that great, but if you go on a good night you could have a blast. I'm definitely not recommending it, but if you go on out late it might be fun and easy to walk to. When doing a little bar tour it's best to hit this place up last.

Not a big fan
I'm not one to complain, but this place could use some work. I enjoy playing pool here on occasion, but I think the service given by the employees at this bar is below average. From my experience, I have noticed that many other bars near this particular establishment also have much better specials.

Nice location... but that's about it.
The location is great, especially if you live in town. Personally, I am not a big fan of the service because some members of the staff are rude and ignorant. I think this place would be great if it wasn't for this. Otherwise I consider everything else there about average.

Great Bar. The bar tenders really seem to make it a point to remember you and the atmosphere is chill, unlike some other places that feel crowded and hoity toity like knutes. Thumbs up to their prices too!

Once a good bar, now bad
I used to go this bar very often because their service was great. Now the bar has really turned to crap. I still go on rare occasions (because a friend may want to go) but until a better staff is hired I think I will stay away as much as possible.

Not Worth It
The female bartenders feel entitled to be rude for no reason. Perhaps their mommmy and daddy should talk to them. The rest of the staff gets grumpy when it gets busy. Drinks aren't strong. Stronger drinks can be found at other bars in town. The staff is friendlier when the owners show up. The owners should be around more often instead of letting their kids run the bar.

over all...average
Orky's is just that place that meets in the middle. They don't serve food to keep smoking...which for smokers I think would be a plus. If I am looking for a good time, good music, a fun atmosphere I go somewhere else. If I am looking for something mellow and calm I go there. Great place to meet up with friends and just talk or to hit the pool tables which are in pretty good condition. Overall it's average. Although a good bartender is few and far between there...

Come on guys
As with many bars, Orkys is not the type of place you go to eat a big meal. It's the type of place you go to drink and relax with your college friends. I consider it to be the best place in town to play pool and you can also still smoke there. The biggest and possibly only problem I have with the bar is the service. It seems that the employees who work there are either on point or horrible. While half of the staff will continuously work and be friendly, the other half wont do anything or they will be rude, hostile and ignorant. This hasn't been going on for an extremely long period of time, but hopefully someone will put an end to it soon.

Something Stinks.
The music is good..pool tables are ok...company is decent but the drinks are weak and ALL the bartenders act like they are PMSing 24/7. If you want good service and strong drinks, find Jon at the Black Horse or Justin at Knutes.

notice the comment by a guy named sean
It reads like a commercial and one of the owners sons and bartenders is named Sean. Coincidence. I think not. Anyway its a great place to go with friends if you dont mind waiting for drinks since the bartenders are either high or more concerned about making drinks for themselves.

Orky's is the best dive bar around
Orkyís is a total sausage factory but itís a great bar to just hang out in. The drink specials are kind of lame but late night is hilarious for the hook-ups that occur.

No trips outside!
The fact that you can stay inside and smoke at Orky's makes it a lot more desirable then the other bars in town. In addition, they have the most random giveaways and contests of any bar in town. Just spend a night there and you're likely to be part of some type of contest etc. Always have basketball tournaments, pool tournaments, fantasy baseball and football, NFL Sunday Ticket, and the MLB extra innings package means you will never miss a game. In addition there is no 1 drink limit and no gimmicky specials like "dollar rum and cokes" to trick its customers into thinking they are getting a deal. Orky's assumes a higher intelligence level than that in their customers!

Orky's has made some nice changes over the years, but one constant has been their employment of crazy b*tches. In the past ten years, the only improvements have been a few new tv's, a new jukebox, and bathrooms with doors on them. There is a nice atmosphere at Orky's but it would be nice to see some more hot girls there. Usually that place has more swinging meat than a butcher shop. The drinks are usually strong and my friend found out when he only had a few drinks and ended up hitting on a midget. He didn't realize it until she stood up to go to the bathroom. I also saw two girls make out on a pool table there at 2 in the morning, so the place can't be that bad.

Orky's Kills other bars
orky's has the most atmosphere of any bar in shippensburg. yeah you can go to market cross, cram into a sardine can and pay $7 a drink, and $10 for beer that is for ritzy kids who drink beer they have never heard of pretending to be elite. you can go to knute's and break your legs walking downstairs everytime you need to go to the bathroom, wait 2 hours for 1 drink, pay extra for it, and not be able to order more than 1 at a time(these are the rules). you can go to wibs(if you've already been drinking all day) dont expect to get drunk at wibs, the line is usually about 30 deep. as far as dancing and music wibs is the best, but not for drinking. maxie's doesn't have liquor, black horse is always empty. hot point is cool if you are missing teeth, like country music karoake and worn out pool tables with craters in them, and again, slow service. orky's has fast semi-friendly service, and the cheapest prices in town. it also has the most variety of games and qualtiy pool tables. in addition to that there is at least 3 specials a day(food, liquor, and beer). there are monthly promotions and giveaways, and the friendliest customers. all in all if you are a normal person, orky's is the place for you.

Orky's is a run of the mill bar...there is nothing special about it other than that overemployment of beer mirrors and neon lights. This is not a place that you would want to go to at happy hour being that it is rustic and hasn't been renivated in years, on the other hand if you go there during the day you are more likely to have a pleasant time due to the large bar and expanse of open area. Another comment about the drink...lacking. Orky's has a wide variety of beer on tap and in bottles but when it comes to hard liquor there is about as much help as Richard Simmons in a bar fight. Ex: No pravda, bombay sapphire, bombay, Cobo Wabo, ... High end. This is basically an alright place to go but is lacking in significance and if it disappeared off the face of the planet not many people would be piqued.

If you want the worst bartenders in town, then go to Orky's. Chances are you'll be kicked out anyway. The bartenders there suck soooooo bad, its not worth even mentioning Orky's when you talk about SHIP bars. The drink specials there aren't even that good and I don't think there has ever been a good looking female to set foot in that place.
