On my frequent visits to Orchard Valley I often wonder why the restaurant seems to be the Best Kept Dining Secret in Aurora. The food is very good, drinks are generous and the staff is very friendly. I know there is a perception for many that Orchard Valley is a country club for members only, and it is not. The level of quality and service make it seem to be a country club, but I fear that perception keeps likely diners from taking advantage of the terrific experience that I and friends have had on every visit. The new management of Billy Caspar Golf has promised to advertise more widely and frequently, but until they do effectively, the restaurant will continue to be unknown to many local diners who would truly enjoy the experience. I dearly hope they will do this. Orchard Valley should not be allowed to disappear from the Aurora restaurant scene.
Pros: Seafood specials, prime rib, sandwiches and salads
Cons: Not advertised widely locally, remains lesser-known
