Sidney at Willoughby Run Ratings and Reviews
The menu was entertaining and the chef gave a compliment tasting. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the way it was served. The waitress was engaging and personable. Food portions were perfect and delectable. The ambience was limited. A consideration to lower the lighting and re-furbish the rooms to make dining more intimate would enhance the diners experience.
Everything was excellent. Atmosphere, service, etc. We liked the small plate choices because you can try a number of different dishes. The only thing we would offer for consideration is that some of the dishes (the calamari and two of the entree fish dishes) seemed a little busy with extras and sauces on the plate. As you were eating them they became messy or gloppy. The flavors and techniques were outstanding it's just that we thought they could use a little editing or simplifying. None-the-less we don't hesitate to return and we would recommend Sidney's to anyone.
My son recommended this for our 30th wedding anniversary. There weren't very many people there when we arrived, and on a Tuesday evening, it remained slow which was fine with us. We sat outside as it was a beautiful evening, and the view was very nice, even pastoral as it's just on the western edge of the Gettysburg battlefield.
My wife had a house special martini and I had a glass of champagne which is unusual at most restaurants. Our appetizer was the artisanal cheeses which was great, especially the raisin walnut toast which is baked on site. Excellent.
My wife had the salmon, and I had some sort of white fish whose name escapes me. Either way, both were excellent, prepared crispy with vegetables per our special request.
Our server, a young lady named Chris, was delightful and informative.
We will be back at some point, probably for a special occasion.
The setting is the old club house from the former Gettysburg Country Club, and the views are outstanding. This is one of the few opportunities for a fine dining experience in Gettysburg, and the cuisine is excellent as is the service. Tables seemed to be limited, so book early.
I will be brief since I'm already upset enough about this place. Ordered wine by the glass and was told, had to order a bottle. We ordered a bottle. They couldn't find that bottle so had to order a more expensive wine. Co-diner ordered $33 stead and ate 3 bites. Plate taken away and no take home box arrived. They said they would give it to us when we left. When we left, they carried out a box and we drove home. At home, opened box and someone's half eaten hamburger was in the box. Called Sidneys...oh we have your steak, come and get it. We drive back to restaurant, no offer of complimentary anything to make up for the error. To top it off, I had the Salmon which my body rejected at 4:00 a.m. Will not return and will steer others away.
We had dined twice at Sidney 2 years ago and had fabulous dinners so we returned twice when we came back to Gettysburg this September.
The first evening I had scallops on ravioli filled with spinach (or a mixture of greens). The scallops were perfectly cooked but the ravioli was almost cold. I didn't trust that the scallops wouldn't be overdone if I sent the meal back so I ate it the way it was served. It was a big disappointment.
The second night we had previously made reservations for our granddaughter 's birthday dinner so we returned with guests. The short menu was exactly the same and there were no specials.
I started with gazpacho which was very tasty and then tuna carpaccio which consisted of 4 very small thin slices of tuna with a dollop of salad on top. I was still pretty hungry. My granddaughter had grilled calamari in a sauce that I would describe as "gloppy". We all tried to help her finish it but it but we still sent back half the plate. Ice cream was the most inspired dessert on the menu. The price for dinner at Sidney's is $$$$
On a positive note the wine list is good and well priced and the service was good. There is lovely outdoor seating if the weather is nice. On both evenings there were very few tables filled either in or outside.
I wouldn't recommend this restaurant and I wouldn't return. Sad to say this because many of the Gettysburg restaurants are burger and pizza places.
Our dining experience in one word - perfection! From amuse to dessert, freshest and tastiest food, prettiest presentation, friendliest waitress, loveliest view from the patio, ah I could go on and on. Gettysburg locals and visitors are so lucky to have access to this wonderful restaurant. We love the option of smaller plates or a full-on dinner. My only problem is choosing, as there are so many delicious options. Wish I could dine here every night! If you've never been to Sidney at Willoughby Run, you owe it to yourself to try it. Go on, you deserve it!
Seated on the patio, there was a lovely view of the grounds. However, we did get many bug bites. There were tiki torches, but none were lit. That may have helped. The food was great and our server was the perfect degree of attentive yet not overbearing. Dessert was to die for!
Have eaten here many times and always enjoy the food and drinks. We choose outside dining this time on the covered patio dining areaa on what turned out to be lovely August evening. We shared 2 small plates (humus and cheeses) which were quite yummy. Instead of continuing to share lots of small plates we each choose a larger main this time but still shared "bites". Crispy chicken was outstanding. Swordfish and its sauce was a hit! (although sliced grapes were an odd addition- but I could avoid them). Pork chop was enormous and delicious. Martinis for some were mixed just right. Specially vodka lemonade good but pricey.
We enjoyed my guys' birthday dinner so much that we will be getting gift cards for some family members and will probably go back for another big occasion. Food was excellent and service was impeccable. We loved everything about it! We live in Maryland about 1/2 hour from Gettysburg (Westminster, MD) but only heard about the restaurant recently. Maybe some advertising in the Carroll County Times is worth it to let the people there know what a gem it is. It's way easier to drive to Gettysburg than to Baltimore to find a new fine-dining restaurant.
I took my girlfriend here for her birthday. It was her choice and it was both our first time here.
It wasn't very crowded as it was a Thursday, so I can't talk about how they are on the weekends. Music was at a good level and not over powering. They have a very unique menu which was great as it offered items that weren't something you would have normally. They have a large wine section, but were out of what we initially wanted. The second and recommend choice by our waitress was a good paring.
Food wise, it is excellent and we loved sharing the Tavern Macaroni Casserole. Both of our main dishes were delicious and I wish I could remember them. The chef even sent us a couple small complimentary food plates of single servings for between and after our meals. It was refreshing as it offered us a way to clear our palates between dishes. The Chef is world renown and I was able to catch him in the kitchen. It was like watching a famous artist working and seeing the final piece - beautiful and scrumptious.
Our waitress was fabulous and she was helpful with our selections as well as pouring wine as needed. Her professionalism was just what you would expect from such a fine establishment.
I would highly recommend this for anyone wanting to impress a date, re-ignite that passion of olde or just to have a romantic night out.
I wish we could of had dessert as there was much we wanted to try, but the food was so filling, we couldn't even attempt it.
Went to Sidney for my birthday dinner. They have wonderful, delicious food. You can tell the chef takes great pride in preparing the menu and dishes. We also had a party a year ago at the same place; we were taken care of very well. It's a beautiful place with super friendly people.
We had a relaxed dinner on the lovely patio on a summer evening. The chilled zucchini soup of the day was unique and delicious as were our fresh greens salad and entrees - scallops and pan roasted salmon. We always enjoy dining at Sidney Willoughby Run because it is close by, always has delicious food and good service.
My wife and I have been to most of the restaurants in the area and were excited to try a new one, "Sidney at Willoughby Run". Unfortunately, we were disappointed. The service and some of the food was good, and that's where the highlights end. I ordered the cheeseboard as a starter, and was disappointed that about half of the bread was burned (not toasted) and the orange marmalade would overpower just about any flavor aside from the charred bread. We were the only table eating at the time and there really was no excuse for that. My wife did enjoy her brisket, but the potato purée with it tasted as if it was made from instant potatoes, and she didn't eat it. I ordered the tuna small plate, and was sad to see how little was there - it was literally 4 very thin cuts of seared tuna (maybe 1/4 inch thick), a few pea sized wasabi cream sauce dabs and a frisée salad in the middle - absolutely overpriced for what it was. My cocktail, a Manhattan, was good. The Prosecco was good, and the wine was ok, but everything was overpriced. The desert I had was not bad, it was a take on a frozen cappuccino.
They are trying to present themselves as an upscale destination, but we could have eaten at our hotel and enjoyed it more. There are quite a few good options in the Gettysburg area for fine dining that are offer much better fare.
Was in the area for only a couple of days and were impressed by the online menu and they did not disappoint. It almost became a non-event since a summer storm took out the power as soon as we were seated. The chef came out and apologized and asked if we could be patient, hoping the power would be restored shortly. Thankfully it was. The carrot soup my husband started with was divine as was my pate. I dined on the nights special of rock fish with crab gnocchi and my husband chose the wild king salmon on smashed peas, both were delightful. We were both pleasantly surprised by the quality and execution of our meal as well as the attentive service and will be recommending this place to our friends
We love this place! The fact that it is located right next to an old golf course makes the atmosphere and the view very relaxing. If the day is not too hot we totally recommend sitting outside. The food is the other thing we love about this little gem. His vegetables are always fresh and beautifully prepared. The only thing we believe could be improved a little bit is the service; but I must say on our last visit even that was good. We highly recommend this place!
