What a gem!Recently tried this restaurant on a whim and fell in love with it. The location may seem a bit out of the way -- the restaurant is located in the heart of tiny East Berlin -- but it is definitely worth the trip. It's a good excuse to travel the back roads of Adams County and appreciate Pennsylvania's beautiful farmlands. Have tried the pork chop -- more like a steak -- the salmon, a spicy carrot soup, the hamburger, oh, and the homemade potato chips, and all of it was wonderful. Couple that with friendly service, great drinks, and a warm atmosphere and you can't go wrong. A great spot for couples and families. Really, can't say enough nice things. Go there.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWho knew?Who knew there was such a fine dining establishment in East Berlin PA? The place is great - food was outstanding - atmosphere is very nice. The service started off with a bit of a hiccup - we were seated and no one came to the table for a good 10 minutes - there were bus people in and out of the dining room - and still no server. We finally had to ask a bus person if we had a server! They finally came over and brought menus - but no acknowledgment or apology - it was if nothing was wrong at all - rather a bit strange. But, the service the rest of the evening was very good, so I guess they redeemed themselves. The food was outstanding! Bit odd though being the only two in the restaurant at 8:15 - guess people eat early in East Berlin!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a great classy experience.We went to Sydney for our anniversary second year in a row and as always it was fantastic. The food, service & atmosphere were top notch. Never had a bad or even mediocre meal at Sydney.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and staff were excellent!The food and staff were excellent! We sat outside and had a very enjoyable evening.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMSidneysThe food was very good, creative flair and lovely presentation. The setting was aesthetically pleasing, the chairs comfortable. There was no music playing which in a way was good as everyone's taste in music is different. On the other hand, it seemed On the staid side. We were early diners so the room was fairly empty. As more people came, a pleasant buzz of conversation made up for it a bit. I would recommend giving yourself the experience of dining at Sidneys.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific menu and presentationTerrific menu and presentation in a quaint country town.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMFood Network would be proudThe food & service was outstanding - 5 star ............A gem hidden in a small town =)5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMEast Berlin Smiles Loves Sidney!Going to Restaurant Sidney is always a treat that we look forward too.

Wait! no, great place!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMA GemEnjoyed the pared down menu which gave you a sense of freshness. My companion had the Hake which was a limited time item allowing for a new tasting experience. The vegetables were out of the ordinary and pared well with the main course.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding EveningHigh-Quality food with great service at a reasonable price! What a gem!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat find in South Central PAScrumptious and met every expectation. A fabulous menu of selections to choose from, great service and wonderful leisurly dining pace - much appreciated in this fast paced world of "turn the table". This was more of a "we want you to come back" - which of course we will.
The highlight of the beautiful evening was the chef had prepared a special diabetic dessert - which frankly I had forgotten that I had asked for and didn't really hold any hope that it would happen. Everything on the menu that we tried - was superb! Four people, four appetizers, four main courses and four desserts! All top rate!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMBeen here before!Enjoyable for lunch. Selections are varied and well prepared. Friendly, good service.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMSydney's has great food andSydney's has great food and a nice atmosphere.

But glad we persevered, the service was very good and the food wonderful! It certainly made believers of us!!!

We have never been disappointed and when we have brought guests, they have without exception, been very pleased.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't be beatThis Easter was our first time at Sidney's, and we enjoyed every minute of it. The bread,served to munch on while perusing the menu, was outstanding - and I am a bread "snob!" Our cocktails were wonderful, too - creative, and there was no stinting on the alcohol. Appetizers were divine, and the entree was absolutely delicious. I would have enjoyed the dessert more had I not been so full from all the delicious food that came before! My one and only complaint is that we had to ask for water, which was promised to us when we were presented with the menus. But...if that is the only thing I have to complain about, well, you get the idea! I can't wait to go back.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingMy favorite restaurant of all time once again did not disappoint!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is fantastic! ExcellentThe food is fantastic!
