    The restaurant is a little hard to find in the dark. The dining room is small and most tables were filled. There are appetizers, small plates, and regular entrees. We shared a Caesar salad, which was very good and each ordered a regular entree. My duck was very good. The oat cake that came with it was odd and the spinach with coconut milk was slightly bitter. My husband ordered veal and said it was also very good. We each had a large glass of wine. They don't serve bread with the meal. The price was high for one and a half courses plus a glass of wine, but the service was very attentive and the preparations were pretty and unique.

    Sidney has been my favorite restaurant for the last 2 years. We take clients, friends and family there as it is so good. On Friday my friend and I dined in the bar area. It was loud! The food was not on point which is very strange indeed. I had the beet salad and the brussel sprouts. Neither were good. I told our waiter I didn't care for the beets, but I suffered through eating the other dish. My friend had the veal and it was off too. The worst part was that our waiter didn't offer another dish or ask why it wasn't to my liking. I'm sure I won't take anyone there for awhile until I can trust the meal again. I will go back, but it will be awhile, I'm sorry to say.

    Some time ago we were aware that there was a new Sidney's in Gettysburg but never visited it - choosing to continue to go to East Berlin instead. Recently a friend told me of his memorable experience there and so we had dinner Saturday night. At first we were uncomfortable with the long walk through the bar and an empty banquet room, but were pleasantly surprised by the dining room. The unique menu was an adventure and unfortunately we ordered far too much food - not their fault. We were pleasantly surprised by the range of choices. The food of course was great and we certainly will return again.

    We tried many different appetizers and starters and enjoyed them all. Our table of six picked three different entrees, all were outstanding! For dessert we each tried a different ice cream and picked two desserts. Everything was amazing and our entire table raved about the meal We highly recommend going to Sidney at Willoughby Run.

    Overall great experience, so much nicer than tourist places in Gettysburg. A little hard to find since the road is so dark and the entrance isn't well lit. Once inside, quickly escorted to table. Food was creative and fabulous. Service was refined and friendly. After a full day of battle scene visiting, it was a perfect way to unwind.

    There are lots of theme restaurants in Gettysburg, but if you're looking for modern "fit for foodies" gourmet food, this is the place to be. The restaurant is spread over several multipurpose type rooms but they've managed to create a couple of intimate spaces. But make no mistake, the food is the reason to come. We are gluten free; they had great options and absolutely delicious home baked gluten free bread and buns. Service was very good and helpful. If we are back in the area we will definitely return.

    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.

    My wife and have dined at Sidney's many times and each time we are surprised and delighted. The menu is never the same. Some items return but there is always something new and delicious. Our latest surprise was his combination of brussel sprouts, walnuts, and cranberries. The chef is truly gifted. Specialty drinks add another dimension. I recommend the "Peartini" and "Highlander". The dessert chef is also very creative. If you dine at Sidney's do not miss the pleasure of the desserts.

    Had dinner there last Friday night. There was a private party in one of the back rooms, so dinner for regular diners was in the grey/green room with the bar. Although there weren't many tables or diners, service was slow. The doors from the dining room to the huge, empty, dark banquet room were open and you could see the kitchen off in the distance. There were also black rod and drape on one side of the room. Note to restaurant: put some rod and drape a couple of feet back from the doors so the little dining room/bar doesn't have a creepy view. Food was OK, but nothing close to the East Berlin location in quality.

    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).

    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.

    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.

    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.
