    Everything we ordered was fabulous. The fluke was spectacularly prepared, the mallard duck was delicious and expertly prepared, the broccoli tempura was the best you will ever get broccoli to taste -- I could go on, but the point is this was special. The service on the other hand was mystifyingly below the level one would expect for this special a menu. From the start, we could not understand how we were seated in the bar area, was this the only dining area? They have a selection of beer but no one to answer simple questions about the choices. I could not even get a glass of wine that I ordered in the midst of appetizers until part way through my main course. Our server disappeared. At this level of dining, the waitstaff has to do better.

    Sidney's at Willoughby Run is a little difficult to find as it is nestled in a former country clubhouse. Only an S marks the correct entry. Once you are there, you are in for a delectable treat. Your choice is appetizer size, small plate, or large plate. We enjoyed a tzatziki and humus platter with roasted bread, ahi tuna, smoked trout -- all delicious. For something out of the ordinary, try Sidney's.

    My wife ordered the Seasonal Soup (Vegetable), and the Roast Duck, I ordered the Caribbean Shrimp and Organic Chicken and we ordered a Warm Flatbread with Hummus and Olive Oils as the server recommended to do (1 share, 2 light plates and 2 normal plates). The recommendation was spot on and it was the perfect amount of food this way (a hair bit too much for my wife). The food was perfectly prepared for both of us. The chef really has it together in taste and presentation. The service was excellent. It was a tough decision to stray from the historical eateries of Gettysburg, but this place will be on the list of places to return to for a special occasion.

    First experience with Small Plate mode of service. Allows enjoying variety of food without overeating or busting the budget. Food was excellent, fresh, well prepared. Server was obviously well trained and very helpful. Only negative: the place was nearly empty which was surprising considering the environment, food quality, and service (but it was a Tuesday evening).

    Easily the best restaurant in Gettysburg, Sidney always delivers a great meal and flawless service. The staff is great with my son's extreme dairy allergy and makes sure he gets a safe, wonderful meal every time we dine there. A must-go for foodies and anyone who likes great food, thoughtfully prepared and served by a terrific staff with a terrific view.

    What a wonderful experience this restaurant turned out to be. The waite staff is superb and so was the food. The waiter greeted us with a wine and cocktail list and when we had chosen, then brought the menu. The food is innovative and very good. The wine list has many outstanding selections. Great view of what used to be a golf course. When we are in the area again we will be going back.

    My husband and I decided to go to Sidney for a date night. We sat in the bar and enjoyed the Tavern mac & cheese, Sockeye Salmon, Sirloin and the Chocolate Chocolate dessert. Our food was amazing and so were our cocktails. My meal was one of the best things I ever ate (salmon with Italian sausage, gnocchi & jumbo crab).

    After touring in Gettysburg, we dined at Sidney Willoughby, and our experience could not have been better. It was a lovely evening, and we had dinner on the veranda overlooking the fields that were once part of the golf course. Service was impeccable, and our food was excellent in preparation and presentation. We will definitely return.

    Nice place, somewhat odd location, in what used to be a country club outside of Gettysburg. We sat on the patio overlooking the former golf course, not terribly scenic but quiet and very pleasant, grass and trees as far as you can see. The service was good, the wait-staff is local high school kids but they're well trained and dress the part, the dishes a little precious, small portions for fairly high prices. The grilled octopus was a little overcooked and rubbery but it's a hard dish to get right. The duck was also a little overcooked and tough. Overall for the price and the pretense of being a"fine dining" restaurant it was a little disappointing, all the right pieces but just not quite put together right.

    Sydney at Willoughby Run can, at times, deliver the most subtle and sophisticated dining experiences - with inspired and unique flavor and texture pairings. Unfortunately, one night a dish may achieve something extraordinary and the next disappoint with flavors that don't pop or are bland or too salty. Despite the inconsistency, the possibility of experiencing the best it can offer keeps us returning again and again. The one issue that has become consistent is the length of time it takes for drinks or plates to arrive, or even be ordered.

    All the reviews are correct, the place has no ambiance, however it was a beautiful night and the outside terrace is lovely. Service started out pretty badly considering it was a quiet night. However, once our waitress arrived, she was great and very attentive. For two women, we shared the tempura broccoli with a delicious dipping sauce, the caprese salad, the octopus, and the smoked trout. Each dish was flavorful, unique tasting, and beautiful to look at. We were pleasantly full. Better food than you'd find in most cities, much less Gettysburg, and way more reasonably priced.

    The food was lovely & well prepared. But the service was terrible because the staff was not well trained, didn't know what items were available. Took much too long for items to arrive, etc. The place will not survive this terrible time & will soon be gone. Gettysberg is not a place that will support this kind of incompetence.

    2 of us went for dinner 7pm Saturday night - ate outside on a large porch area overlooking large lawn/garden area, very pretty. Husband and I shared 1 'plate to share' (mac/cheese/crab), 1 'small plate' (Spanish grilled Octopus) and 1 'large plate' (Rockfish), had 2 cocktails each - food was excellent quality, very well prepared and presented, plenty for the 2 of us, and the bill (before tip) was under $100 - what more could you ask for?

    This was my 3rd time at Sidney's at Willoughby Run in Gettysburg. I love the interesting food options and the great atmosphere in their bar. I have never eaten outside on the terrace but that looks very inviting as well. No matter where you sit, you have a beautiful view. What a nice change from the other "touristie type" restaurants in Gettysburg. Great for a special occasion or just a nice place for drinks and a snack. They have a great selection of both small and large plates and even plates to share. I highly recommend the Crab Mac & Cheese and the Salmon Salad.

    My husband and I did a small intimate wedding at The Beechmont and were recommended this restaurant for after the ceremony. When we arrived, we were very happy with the location and the look of the restaurant. Immediately we noted that the staff was all young kids, late teens, early twenties, no adults around. We did not receive a special table that we had requested. The menu was interesting, you do get a lot of food, so don't over order and there is no bread offered. We sat for more than 10 minutes before we even got our drinks. The "kids" were running around and seemed busy, despite the place being almost dead. The food was incredible, presented well, so yummy but overpriced. I might go back but only for the steak.

    If you are interested in eating outside with a nice quiet atmosphere, try Sidney for lunch during the week Monday thru Friday. The outside dining is excellent with little or no noise to conflict with your conversations. The wine and food choices were very good as well. We are looking forward to our next quiet afternoon dining outside on the patio.

    My boyfriend and I came here for dinner on our recent trip to Gettysburg. I especially liked it because it was not full of tourists and was very relaxed. It is a country club, which my boyfriend didn't realize so he was a little under dressed, but they didn't say anything and treated us the same as every other guest. The view outside was beautiful but the dinning room we were in seem a little confused as there was no real decoration and only some of the tables had table clothes on them - we heard another couple complain they were seated at an unclothed table. But overall, very good, great service, fabulous food, and killer cocktails.

    Sidney at Willoughby Run is a fine dining companion to their East Berlin restaurant. As always the service was impeccable, and the food was very, very good. For me the crab macaroni did not work. Not cheesy enough for me and I think a side of stewed tomatoes would help it. Everything else was very good. My friend had the best burger she has ever had. I had a pork tenderloin cooked to perfection. This was my first time at Willoughby Run and I can see how it makes a great wedding location.

    The Syndey at Willoughby Run is located at the old site of the Gettysburg Country Club which ensured scenic surroundings and delivered a bucolic feast. The restaurant was opened by a chef taking the opportunity to provide a fine dining venue. The service staff was energetic and professional which just enough casual pleasantry to provide a light atmosphere. The food was excellent a menu driven by daily fresh market fare. Dinner started with a nice amuse bouche, I had organic pork with spinach and an excellent spaetlze and my excellent companion had monkfish over fresh vegetables. Both were perfect I must say. A small but excellent wine list completed the main course. An excellent dark chocolate finished the meal. Excellent.

    Since it was an absolutely beautiful evening, we ate outside, overloooking part of the battlefield. I was a bit dissappointed in the ambience indoors so I was very glad to choose outdoor seating. The waitstaff was extremely attentive to my husband and I, and accomodated my Gluten Free diet. I let them know in advance and they were ready for me. They had some wonderful GF breads and they made their own GF pasta-a nice surprise! The Chef actually prepared a dish,not on the menu, to accomodate me. The food was fresh, looked and tasted delicious. I can't say enough good things about our waitress. She was patient,knowledgeable and could not do enough to please us. It was a wonderful experience that I highly recommend. But try to eat outside.
