    We enjoyed our brunch. The food was great. The waitstaff was wonderful. However, there were incidents with the meat carving station person. Even though he wore rubber gloves, he did not use a fork to place the meat on the guest plate , he used his fingers. He also would rub his hair with his hand and then handle meat. Also the eggs benedict were overcooked on the bottom. It was difficult to cut it into bite size pieces. The english muffin was like rock on the bottom. The last is a suggestion to have a seafood dish in addition to meat. We enjoyed the brunch but I skipped the meat carving station. The desserts were superb. We dine frequently at both Sidney's and will return.

  • Buffets Not Their Thing
    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 5/11/2014
    I love this restaurant, but the Mother's Day brunch was truly mediocre. The seating was out of a stale wedding reception, the food was lukewarm and bland (the poached egg was even cold!), there were not enough wait staff to handle the crowd so we had to wait for our check and our child grew impatient, and really the cost, at $219 for four (the three adults had an adult beverage each) was ridiculous. If Sidney at Willoughby Run can't do a buffet, no one can. And Sidney can't. By the way, it's kind of obnoxious how the tip table is based on after tax amount and not before tax amount. A tiny quibble, but just saying.

    We were first time Sidney diners, but had reviewed the intriguing menu online. The food did not disappoint, but the dining room, which is nothing more than the bar area of the adjoining country club, did. The service was attentive although maybe a bit slow and despite the dining room environment, the quality of the cuisine carried the day.

    We had a marvelous time. Was seated on the porch overlooking the beautiful golf course/landscaping. Servers were attentive, informative and gracious. Food - the Chef(s) were on top of their game. The Salmon was to melt in your mouth, the Escolar and Pork Tenderloin were very tender and the presentation was worth a picture. Dessert followed with the same perfection and eye appeal. We will return.

    We were trying to find a nice restaurant in our travels, and found Gettysburgh to be a bit lacking, surprisingly. This restaurant more than fit the bill. The food was Wonderful! Very nice menu with REALLY nice options. We liked it so much, we went back the next night. Excellent find that I highly recommend!!

    This restaurant is in an old country club's bar area (they call it a "tavern" - it's not). The space has not been updated to make it feel like a restaurant and you can see what used to be the country club's event space / dining room (which has just a couple tables and chairs in it) from the bar. The space feels empty and the ambiance is awkward. The service was fine but there were three servers for a total of eight tables. We didn't get why such a small place would need three servers but props to the restaurant for giving three college kids jobs. Sadly the food didn't work. Weird combinations that didn't taste right. Seems like they're still figuring out the menu. I'd suggest simplifying and adding some solid basics.

    This is a good restaurant and I am sure that you will enjoy the food and the setting. However, it is not in the very good category in my view as it is situated in a former golf club and lacks a little atmosphere. The food is good but my medium/well steak was at least well done and not the best. I would go back and try again and I would urge you to give it a try and make up your own mind. The chocolate desert was really good.

    More Sunday buffets.... A welcomed option for a Sunday extravaganza. We attended the Easter brunch, not a typical event for Sidney. Then again, we could not afford many more. This is one of those "you get what you pay for" events--expensive (for Gettysburg) but worth it.

    My husband and I were at the restaurant on Friday 4/4/14. Our server (Ayanna sp?) was friendly, informative, and available. We were given a carrot mousse on a small spoon.The mousse was light and spicy and left us admiring the knife skills of whomever finely chopped the dollop of carrot salad on top of the mousse. Our dinners were delicious, our favorites were the celeriac purée with broccoli rabe, the Brussels sprouts appetizer, and the Berkshire pork loin. The dessert of three small custards were each amazing! We will definitely be back and will come when the weather is nicer as we would like to be able to sit outside on the porch that overlooks the old golf course and have some more Flirtinis (a specialty drink on the menu).

    The chef creates amazing dishes that tantalize the tastebuds and create an eating experience. The wine was amazing (Bodega La Flor Cabernet Sauvignon). This is a great place when you want a gourmet food experience that will surprise you with creative dishes. I have been here numerous times and the steak, salmon and pork tenderloin dishes are amazing. And the desserts are out of this world. What a great place.

    GettysburgGetaway
    Dined on 3/8/2014
    My wife and I took a couple's weekend in Gettysburg and were looking for some special dining. We gave Sidney a shot and were so happy we made reservations for the following night as well. Tim was our waiter and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Both of our meals at Sidney were beyond our expectations. Sidney definitely has a head chef worth their weight in gold. The flavors that were achieved in each bite of every plate were amazing. I was also impressed with the price of our meals. A dining experience with food as well prepared and delicious should have cost more in my mind. I was very pleased when we had an appetizer, entree, a desert, and I had a cocktail and our bill was only 62 dollars. DELECTABLE.

    My husband and I go here often when we're in the mood for a local "Top Chef" experience. The food is great, and dishes come in small or larger plates. Their pasta is always made from scratch (they usually feature one pasta dish). Right now I recommend the NY strip with the potato "cake." Also their oysters, tempura broccoli, and pate are my fave appetizers. This restaurant takes some food risks with items that you may have not tried--it's worth it! Finally, the service. No where in 50 miles will you receive the service you get here. The staff has been trained to the highest quality, likened to what you find in Michelan star rated restaurant.

    We have eaten at both Sydney's several times, Willoughby more and the food has always been great. Because of the setting and quality of food and service, I asked that my retirement party be held here. You did not disappoint on that evening either. The thank-you cards we received summed up the affair as "classy". Our latest dinner was Feb 15 and it was even better than the others. Wow, my husband is still talking about the Roasted Red Pepper and Coconut milk soup, the Salmon, the beat salad and the trio of desserts esp the mousse with grapefruit. We will be returning shortly.

    The ambience is terrible...seems like your in a boring banquet. Crab mac n cheese was bland and had a strong seafood smell and no taste or seasoning...terrible. Strip steak was ok it was overcooked and bland needed seasoning. Had to season then it was ok. Salmon was bad. Told me they cook it medium rare which I like, came out well done and again bland. Lobster dish was actually pretty good. Now the worst part. We waited almost an hour between courses. I realize it was valentines day and all tables were full but the restaurant doesn't have many tables and waiting an hour between each of three courses is unacceptable. We arrived at 7:30 and didn't leave until 10:45. $250 wasted and a bust for a valentines dinner.

    We ate in the Tavern. It was a quiet, leisurely lunch with friends. Food and drink arrived at a relaxed pace. We tried a brussel sprouts starter. All four of us found it very tasty. Three of us ordered the quiche-of-the-day and it was also yummy. With lunch we enjoyed their Good Intent cider, locally brewed and aged in bourbon barrels-a refreshingly unique taste. Sydney's for lunch is a great place to enjoy delicious food, drink, and relax with friends.
