Sidney at Willoughby Run Ratings and Reviews
My wife and I chose to have dinner here for our Anniversary, after reading a blog review by a friend. We enjoyed the entire experience. We were seated in the bar area, which had some nice light jazz playing in the background. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful. As it was our anniversary we were treated a few small extras compliments of the chef, which were greatly appreciated. My wife and I chose the Brussel Sprouts from the sharing menu, and they were fantastic. The butternut squash, walnuts and macerated cranberries included in the dish really set this apart from plain brussel sprouts. My wife chose to build her own burger, which she said was one of the best she's ever had. I had the Panko breaded Barramundi with Potato gnocchi and fresno chili sauce which was fantastic. The desserts were just as wonderful. My wife loved the Vanilla Creme Brulee with mixed nut biscotti, and enjoyed every bite of a cheesecake with fig compote, roasted hazelnuts, and a honey granita. We will certainly return, and have already recommended this spot to friends.
The food was the best it's been in a long while - the barramundi was perfection! - but the service was lackluster. Waitress hadn't tasted most of the menu items we asked about, nor was she personable. The waiter who had the table next to us was more useful since he described the specials to his table and we could hear, where our waitress could barely remember them.
My husband and I ate here to celebrate our wedding anniversary and we are both so glad we did. The staff were all very nice and attentive and we were greeted with celebratory champagne for our anniversary. We were very impressed by the plating and presentation of all dishes as well as the amazing taste as well. We both enjoyed the beef brisket and it was tender, and melted in your mouth. The sides were mashed potatoes and carrots and even the sides were just incredible. The flavors all complimented each other and made for a very well balanced meal. For dessert we enjoyed the chocolate cake and creme brûlée and both were spectacular. We will definitely be returning the soonest chance we get. I would highly recommend this restaurant!
Great food! We enjoyed the sirloin steak and the barramundi. It’s clear you have a very talented chef!
The ambiance is best described as “country club”. It’s nice, but doesn’t have much ‘character’ - kind of sterile decor.
One thing that bothered us a bit is that the waitress didn’t tell us her name. (This was the case at all three restaurants we’ve eaten at in Gettysburg on this trip so far, which we thought was strange).
Fabulous!!!! We took a trip up to Gettysburg to see friends and went to Sydney's for our anniversary dinner. I had let them know ahead of time that we would be celebrating and right after seating us, the server came out with two glasses of champagne to welcome us and thanked us for allowing them to celebrate with us. Food was spectacular and service perfect. If I could give the restaurant 10 stars, I would!!!
I took my husband to Sidney for his birthday on Saturday night. The ambiance was lovely. We sat in the center of the room and it was very nice. Several other tables were there. The noise level was nice. Nice music, just the perfect type of music and the correct volume level. We had an appetizer(pâté) trout and salmon. 2 glasses of wine. Everything was delicious. Good portion sizes and excellent service all around We will go back. ASAP!
Once again, we had a wonderful dining experience. Best caeser salad we've ever had to start. I had the barramundi and husband had steak. Both dishes were absolutely perfect. We will definitely be back! We both got the double chocolate cake for dessert which was also amazing. If weather permits, sit outside as the view is beautiful
The chef here has an incredible palette. The dishes are complex and delicious. I personally enjoy all the fish varieties and the way they are prepared. The atmosphere is not my favorite - Feels uninhabited and cold at times. If the weather is right, dining outside is my favorite location. Staff is tentative and knowledgeable of meal preparation. I keep returning, which is the best compliment a restaurant can have.
What a pleasant surprise! The place looks like one of those country club dining rooms where you have to eat the food because you've already paid for it. We almost left after being seated in a large, charmless catering-type room where a large party was occupying 2/3rds of the space. I am so glad they found better seating and that we stayed. The meal: fresh oysters with perfect chill and toppings; poached halibut over spinach with just the right texture and delicious (and unusual) garnishments; a peachy thingy with creme fraiche that had us scraping our dishes for every last remnant. Our server was a young man who exhibited the serving skills of someone much older. The young woman at the bar also served a martini that was way, way above what was expected. The food is terrific! We would be there a lot if we lived closer!
As always, the best restaurant in the area. Lots of interesting entrees and portion sizes. The chef is very creative and never disappoints. The servers are helpful and knowledgeable about the food. I would recommend sitting in the bar area if the weather won't allow you to seat outside. It is more cozy than the large dining room.
Warm welcome by hostess and quick seating. Decided to move to an outside table and the staff was very helpful. Perfectly paced service in a relaxed atmosphere. Cocktails were well mixed, shared appetizer was plenty for four. Entrees were delicious! We ordered Angus steak, pork roast ( yummy roasted peaches) and brisket. Everyone tasted everyone's and we were truly pleased. Will definitely visit again. Highly recommend.
I took my daughter here for her 9th birthday. She loved it! The food was excellent, fresh, and well seasoned. The atmosphere was perfect for a quiet lunch. I had made a special request through my online reservation, and the wait staff executed it perfectly. Will absolutely be back soon!
There were 4 of us for dinner and we went there based on reviews. The food did not disappoint.
I was very impressed with the loin of pork that came with grilled peaches and zucchini. Everyone tasted the zucchini because it was seasoned especially well. I had the grilled octupus for an appetizer it was tender put the portion was very small. My husband had the brisket and he liked it and the mashed potatoes were superb. As an appetizer we shared a vegetable flat bread, it was not a favorite of mine but everyone else liked it.
The portions are not huge but the food is good you just wish there was more.
My friends that we brought it was their first time & I knew they would enjoy the Vegan menu. I really enjoyed your Hamburger. Tasted like a steak. Delicious. My Husband was disappointed. He did not care for the chicken salad. Chicken was dry. He was disappointed in the weak selection of the menu.
We will be back. It was a lovely lunch with our friends
We were visiting Gettysburg and wanted a quality dining experience. While other reviews were correct that the exterior Country Club entrance was at odds with the historic location, the actual dining area was nicely furnished and the food was excellent. Great veggie burger for my fussy vegetarian spouse and many gluten free options for my allergy. The halibut was fantastic.
By far, Sidney's is the best dining experience in Gettysburg, as well as within a 50 mile radius. The food is superb, and service is excellent too. I love that the Chef whistles "like a song bird" to call in staff. (It took me a while to figure out where the whistles derived!). I love Sidney's. My only suggestion is to open a diners' grocery market so that I can transport some of the Chef's delectable pantry items and desserts home!!!
