Definitely the best food we had in Gettysburg-- stands up to any of the top class restaurants in Philadelphia that we frequent. Sophisticated and complex dishes that were all cooked and seasoned perfectly. You will not be disappointed. Cocktails were also excellent. Service was good...when the staff actually came to our table. Problem was, we had to wait at least 10 minutes after being seated just to get menus. Not sure if this is typical, but the waiter only had about 5 other tables so there really was no reason for the delay. Anyway, the food more than made up for the minor inconvenience.

The chef put together quite a selection and everything was not only different but most excellent; the view was outstanding out on the patio. Be sure not to try and use your AMEX though, that didn't work which was my only complaint.

Restaurant is located at the local country club, great views overlooking the outskirts of the battlefield area. Service was leisurely, but the small, daily updated menu has some gems. The roast chicken is was perfectly done, with an interesting carrot purée and sauce. Pan seared mahi-mahi was also well prepared and topped with a citrus-peppercorn mix.

We are people who have a number of food allergies so we have very specific needs when dining. The chef at Sidney was thoroughly accommodating to each special request and was able to maintain the highest level of preparation and taste through every course. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this restaurant to anyone and we will certainly visit it again!

The food here was absolutely outstanding - as good as anything available in New York City or Washington. The lack of training and experience of the young and friendly server detracted from an otherwise outstanding meal.

It's a pity that this wonderful place was not full on a lovely Friday night. It's neither well marked nor well promoted, but only a short distance from the centre of town.

IF YOU'RE IN THE GETTYSBURG AREA AND YOU PASS UP GOING TO THIS RESTAURANT, YOU WILL BE DOING YOURSELF A GREAT DISFAVOR ... IT WAS (SIMPLY PUT) SUPERB! WE WILL RETURN.

After reading all the reviews we were a little hesitant about dining here but it was great. The food was well presented and flavorful. The staff was helpful. The portions were larger than originally explained, could have shared a large plate after having an appetizer. Wine list had a good selection.

Last minute need for a table for 5 following a graduation. They did have availability. But this was perhaps the single most overpriced, standard buffet style meal I have ever experienced. Service was extremely slow, ice tea did not arrive until most of table finished meal. It was not clear in reviews that this is strictly a self service buffet in a large banquet hall - or at least it was for this meal. The only thing missing for close to $60 per person - which did not include even soda or ice tea - was any ambiance. One nice touch, they do compute a range of estimated tips for you on the bottom of the receipt- saves mental time when numbers are large.

The food was just fair. My wife and I both ordered the ribeye steak medium. They were both under cooked. Rare at best. The waitress was very nice but it took us 35 minutes to receive our first drink. We were seated for one and a half hours before we received anything to eat. The waitress kept apologizing because she felt bad. It was an entirely to long of a night for food that was mediocre and the prices were quite high.

 (Atlanta)·Dined on May 15, 2015

Four of us dined at Sidney at Willoughby Run on May 15, 2015, primarily based on a good review I read in a 2013 “36 Hours in Gettysburg” article in the NYT. Except for the food, the experience was a disaster. When we arrived with a reservation, there was a long line at the Host Desk where we waited to be seated for about 15 minutes with no explanation. We were escorted to our table through an empty and very large banquet (?) room; the kitchen opened into this room and I observed a man who appeared to be the chef shouting at several people in the kitchen (servers?) as we walked by—not conducive to a nice ambiance. We were seated at the first table next to this cavernous room, which was also not pleasant as it was very chaotic. We then waited about 20 minutes before anyone came to the table and watched as numerous servers were practically bumping into each other as they ran back and forth to the kitchen. We stopped a server and asked for a wine list; we ordered wine and waited another 20 minutes before it arrived, and when it did, the server said they were out of wine glasses. Then we were given only 3 menus and were told they had run out. We were ready to walk out at that point, but due to limited other options on a Saturday night, we stayed. After another wait of 20-30 minutes, our food arrived; all 4 of our entrees were very good, which was the only positive part of the evening. After spending about 2 ½ hours and a considerable amount of money, we left extremely disappointed. In a restaurant of this one's status, the management should never let these problems happen.

We had an Open Table gift cheque. They went out of their way to figure out how to accept it, they called Open Table and new exactly how to process it. Other Open Table restaurants just told us "no" they would not accept it
In addition the food was delicious. Outside seating is beautiful and the service is very good and friendly.

I really like this restaurant and want to give them all 5s . But the last couple times there, they have not been 5s.

Things I liked...the little appetizers compliments of the chef. They are alway out of this world good. This time we got little white chocolate green tea truffles after our meal. Also compliments of the chef. Those were fabulous. The beer selection is always very good. I had a black bean burger this time. Loved the burger, the pommel frites were pedestrian, (chef can do better than that!). Oh and the Caesar Salad was great. I've had the beef tenderloin and a salmon dinner that were absolutely delightful on past visits to Sidney's.

The couple of problems we have had have been minor but glaring when your expectation is perfection.
1. My husband ordered his burger media rare,,,it was fully cooked.
2. I had a Margarita... It was bland and kind of sour.
3. The pomme frites mentioned above.

Certainly regardless of these few issues, I wholeheartedly recommend Sidney's of Willoughby Run as an excellent spot for a quiet elegant restaurant for a casual dinner or a formal affair. Great ambiance both outside and in the bar.

We were celebrating a birthday for our son and chose the restaurant based on reviews on Open Table. Overall the food was very good but the service was just okay. The server was really pleasant and sweet but the timing was not great. We got 2 out of 5 drinks about 20 minutes after we were seated and then had to wait about 20 more minutes to get the other 3. I ordered a bottle of champagne and it took a long time before it was brought out. First appetizers didn't come out until over an hour after we were seated.
On the positive side, the patio seemed nice, overlooking a nice golf course, the food was really good and our server Sarah was very sweet. I think with some better management this could be a great place for a special occasion.

My husband and I were in town for a birthday celebration and decided to treat ourselves to a special dinner. Overall we were very pleased. We ate early so reservation were not an issue. Host was very pleasant and welcoming. I think our server may have been new. He was very nice but incredibly unconfident and a little awkward. But he explained the dishes (I. E. Read the description) and the menu competently. Beer list was a little sparse for our liking but the wine list was great and specialty drinks were fun. We were seated in the tavern which based on other reviews, I preferred over the larger dining area, and had a nice view of the old golf course. The downside was we were the only people in there and got to listen to the bartenders banter during our "romantic dinner". The only other negative was that halfway through our meal a group of 4 plus small baby was seated right next to us and we spent the rest of the meal listening to their overly personal conversation about the conception of the child, breast feeding, etc. Not appropriate fine dining conversation and the rest of the room was empty soooooo.... Why were they 1 foot away?
Luckily the food was by far the BEST meal we have ever had. We've been to numerous fine dining, 4-5 star restaurants, and the quality and presentation of the food at Sidney Willoughby Run outshines them all. We are pescatarian, so no meat but we do eat fish. Our appetizer (Brussels sprouts. Great portion) and small plates (beet salads) were in a word, delicious. For large plates we both had fish and they were to die for. Perfectly cooked. Beautiful presentation and the combination of flavors on each dish was amazing. Dessert, the caramel tart, was the perfect ending. And they added a birthday candle. :)
Overall, exactly what I'd hoped for from the food. Ambiance took a notch due to the surrounding conversations. Prices were on point for the quality of the meal.

Despite the online menu indicating that there would be a fresh market fish available, there wasn't any, leaving only two fish entree choices. Two of us dining were non-red meat eaters, so we ordered each of the fish options. One, the smoked trout was similar to a hot smoked white fish served with a very thin potato purée and onion rings (? Really?) and the other was a monkfish with risotto infused with clam and curry. We felt hopeful about this dish, considering all those flavors should be delicious together. Not so. The monk fish was very overdone ( rubbery ) and was floating in a very unappealing looking curry foam ( think dog bile...)
The meat entrees: sirloin and lamb were exceptional and perfectly prepared and presented.
The appetizers weren't as yummy as the desserts ( which were fabulous!)
The service was very attentive and professional.
If you are a seafood lover - choose elsewhere! An very expensive dinner for four ( almost $250. Including tip ) for a overall inconsistent meal.

We just got back from a weekend in Gettysburg. We celebrated out 30th wedding anniversary and wanted to dine somewhere great. our Innkeeper recommended Sydney at Willoughby Run. We shared grilled flat breads with hummus and dill dip. So good. I had veal and my husband had duck. The dishes were beautiful and so so yummy. We shared dessert of flan. It was presented in small bite size pieces. Little works of art and delicious. The food was wonderful and very creative. I love that!

Having eaten at Sydney in East Berlin numerous times, my wife and I were excited to try Sydney at Willoughby Run for the first time. I made reservations for 6:15 on valentines day.

Upon arriving, we were greeted by a friendly hostess and had our coats checked by a friendly attendant. That is where things started to deteriorate. Instead of being seated in the restaurant, we were taken to the banquet room where tables had been erected to expand capacity. The room was not at all intimate, Instead of a romantic dinner with my wife, it felt more like we were attending a wedding reception. Instead of enjoying our meal in a nicely decorated restaurant, we instead got to look at the accordion style wall used to separate large banquet rooms into two smaller rooms. In place of romantic music streaming through their sound system, a table was set in the corner with a radio/cd player which would occasionally go silent at the end of a disc until it was restarted by the wait staff.

For our dinner, my wife order the steak and I ordered the veal. Her steak was well prepared and delicious, my veal was bland and dry. For desert we ordered the molten chocolate cake which was over cooked and therefore was not molten. What should have been a delicious ending to the meal was unfortunately a dry pound cake.

On a good note, our waitress was wonderful and attentive.

We have had two large dinner parties here in less than a year. This has given us an opportunity to taste many of the dishes. The food has been outstanding. We love the burgers. However the duck and steak dinners are dishes we definitely recommend. The pizza and the shrimp are great starters for the table. Our waiters have always been prompt with service. The waiters also always smile and seem to genuinely want to serve you. Another notable thing is the timing between courses. You never feel rushed and you have time to savor and digest each individual course before the next one is served. I highly recommend going to Sidney at Willoughby.

This was my third time eating here. First was when they opened it was a great experience. The second time was last week for lunch. I ordered the quiche and it came out completely burnt on top! I wanted to send it back but was at an important lunch. This weekend I decided to return for a romantic evening with my husband and made a reservation. When we arrived the very pleasant hostess insisted on sitting us in the dining room even though I asked three times to sit in the tavern. She said she would prefer we sat in the dining room because even though there were five open tables in the tavern and we HAD reservations that the tavern fills up and she would prefer we ate in the dining room. The service was amazing but the table was horrible. We entered a huge room (conference style) and was sat right next to two tables there with kids even though the entire dining room was empty. My one night out in two months without our kids I certainly don't want to have a romantic evening next to others. They were well behaved but not ideal place to be seated as a couple. My food was ok and the wine very nice. When we finished we went to the bar in the tavern for a drink and the tables I requested to sit at were still EMPTY. Major fail on the hostess...

This was our third time at Sidney's. While I wouldn't recommend it, we had our two year old grandson along with us. The wait staff went out of their way to accommodate this restless two year old. Even the bar tender, a nice young woman, brought some pencils and paper along with some small toys to help keep him occupied. They served some of his dinner a little quicker as well.
As for everything else, it was as magnificent as ever. Great food, good atmosphere, attentive servers. The best around! Our best to the Chef!

I have been going to Sidney's since it first opened. The first visit was outstanding--the best I had ever eaten in Central Pa. The visits following were not up to the first visit. However, this most recent visit was outstanding--similar to my first visit. It was definitely a Michelin one star. I hope this quality will continue.

While visiting Gettysburg Sidneys was recommended as a great spot for special occasions. Since it was my wife's birthday, I decided to give it a try. We were greeted by a young man who took our coats and sat us immediately at a small table next to the fireplace. We were off to a great start. Water and menus came right away , as did our drinks, and our waiter made some recommendations. We both chose the sirloin steak wth red wine and mushroom gravy. We also ordered the roasted Brussels sprouts and butternut squash to share (very large portion, definitely enough for two).
The meal ended with red wine and plum sorbets and a candied apple wit a candle in it for my wife.
We would definitely dine at Sidneys again. A very nice upscale fine dining restaurant.

As this was our second visit, we were not let down from our first. Food was excellent. We would have preferred somewhere away from the bar for our seating but, that was never mentioned when reservations were made. I should have known better. The server again was very helpful without having to pull information out of her. She also didn't tell us more than we needed to know. All-in-all, it will not be our last visit. We will invite others to share in the experience. While there are some pricey dishes on the menu (and rightly so) there are also some moderately priced offerings as well. For an upscale establishment, most people can still find something to fit their wallet. We felt like they were glad we came, instead of being fortunate they let us come. It was wonderful, and we will be looking forward to the next visit.

I'm always pleased with my meal at both Restaurant Sidney locations. In Gettysburg, the small plate menu gives you the opportunity to share and taste numerous offerings from the eclectic menu. NYE lunch was delicious especially the Crispy Calamari Pizza with Jalapeño and the Classic Sidney Pate is out of this world. Restaurant Sidney has been mentioned a few times in the Food and Drink blog " Musing about Eating and Boozing" .... Check it out!

I made reservations through Open Table for lunch at the Sidney Willoughby Run restaurant in Gettysburg, PA, for 12/31/14. When I phoned the restaurant to confirm the reservations I was told by the staff they were not open for lunch! Thankfully, because of my call-ahead my wife and I were spared the 30 mile drive only to find locked doors. Open Table and the Sidney Willoughby Run need to improve their communication with each other and more importantly, with their customers. Since my ratings above are default minimums, my more accurate rating is a 0 across all categories for both the restaurant and Open Door.

Sidney is fine dining at its best. The menu is fit for a foodie but on a high-class caliber. The menu changes, which keeps things interesting, but there are some classics that one must try, including the brilliant pate. An entree I highly recommend is the spiced quail stuffed with foie gras and mushrooms, possibly the most favorable dish I have had, anywhere. The bar makes great cocktails and has a good wine list; not too pricey. Overall, this is a must try fine-dining restaurant for those who want class and some moderate adventure in their meals.
