Restaurant is closed
This restaurant was closed and no one notified us so we showed up to a locked building.
As emailed before- lousy. Although our reservation was confirmed when we arrived at the restaurant it as closed
When we arrived at the restaurant, there was a sign on the door that said they were no longer opened for business. We were very disappointed as this was a dinner to celebrate a birthday. We were annoyed that the restaurant did not contact OpenTable, as we had received an email reminded from OpenTable earlier in the day about our reservation for that evening.
Always take care of my GF DF needs
Food very good. Service needs a lot of work. Beautiful setting, especially outside
Was very pleased to have found this nice local Bistro in the very touristy town of gettysburg PA Area. Took my parents and Aunt & Uncle to experience the wonderful food at Sidney W. for my parents 60th wedding anniv. Hope to return again with the rest of my family in the future.
Everything was fantastic, we will definitely be back!
Enjoyed a porch table even with some rain. Great service. Broad menu with some unique combinations.
Staff were friendly and attentive. Food was creative and delicious. Atmosphere is upscale but not pretentious. Tasty cocktails. Carrot ginger soup was excellent.
The wait staff needs a bit more polish but they try darn hard. Small number of tables indoor so opt for outdoors if the weather is good. Beautiful grounds. The food is good as well which is a plus.
Very nice time and delicious food. But, after we finished our main course, it took a long time for the waitstaff to notice that we were ready for coffee and the dessert menu.
It was my husband ‘s 54th birthday
Our server was fantastic & friendly, food was so so good. I had the Seared Ahi tuna small plate- literally one of the best dishes I have EVER had. My husband had the Brisket and liked that. Oysters were excellent- we sat outside and it was all excellent.
In town for a concert and saw this place had good reviews. Wow the food was incredible, the view beautiful and the wait staff A+. Would travel the 2 hours just to come here. Thanks for a wonderful evening!
Very good food. We had dinner on their open porch area. The management policy is that our dog could not stay with us outside under the table. So, one of our party had to return to our hotel room with the dog and get room service. A shame.
We have been traveling and eating out every day. It was a joy to come "home" to Sidney and the best meal of the week. The duck was sublime - and the shrimp cocktail is entirely too amazing to be called just "shrimp cocktail".
Delicious food, wonderful patio for outdoor dining, fantastic service.
Very nice service, though it was a little slow on the drink order. But, overall, our experience at Sidney was very nice. The food was excellent; the barramundi was one of the best fish dishes we've ever had!
My wife and I enjoyed a 32nd anniversary dinner on a perfect night to sit at an outside table, views and scenery very nice along with a very quiet atmosphere. Of course the food, outstanding and the beverages as well with some interesting and tasty choices. Staff was excellent, service was just a touch slow but we were in no rush yet they checked on us numerous times with different people, Very Nice Overall, perfect place for a special dinner or event, thank you!!
When we arrived at our table next to the window, there was a dead fly on the windowsill. No big deal. Then there was an ear-piercing test of the alarm system that went on interminably seemingly, so much so that my hearing-aid-wearing companion wanted to leave because of the discomfort the high-pitched sound was causing her. Why test the security/fire alarm system at lunch time? My food was wonderful, as it always is but my companion was not able to find anything to her liking on the menu and ordered simply a dessert for her lunch. When her ice cream arrived, it was a disappointingly small portion. The fire alarm test then began again and at this point we were ready to leave and did so, not feeling very good about our usually great experience at Sidney at Willoughby Run. I will return to Sidney but my companion will not. Too bad.
It was our anniversary, which I had checked on the ‘special occasion’ section of my reservation. This was our first time at Sydney’s. Upon arriving, we were seating at a nice outdoor table with a lovely view of the wetlands/ National Park. Our waitress brought us menus to peruse, and when she came back she had two glasses of Champaign and some appetizers for our anniversary, compliments of the house. What a nice surprise! We shared the ahi tuna appetizer, which was really yummy, and for our main courses we had the rabbit special and the Berramundi fish dish. Both were delicious, as was the chamomile creme brûlée with berries! Great food, excellent service and a lovely setting. What more could we ask for?
This restaurant was a pleasant surprise. Some of the reviewer‘s gave it poor marks because it used to be a country club and did not have the ambience that they had expected. It did used to be a country club but a large portion of the land was sold to the park service to be restored to its natural state for Gettysburg national Park. I have to say our dinner was great. We both ordered the salad special and the Porkchop. Both were delicious and we had them with a great bottle of wine. Sitting on the deck outside was lovely.
Pleasantly surprised with food, service, and ambiance. This is the old Gettysburg Golf Clubhouse.
We are on the patio and it was very nice. Food was really outstanding. Happy we found you on
Trip Advisor. Definitely a local crowd. Not the easiest place to find if you are visiting Gettysburg
but well worth the search.
We visited Sydney’s to celebrate our 27th wedding anniversary. We were greeted with a smile and friendly banter, not to mention a special notice and wish for a wonderful anniversary. Next, presumably a manager also greeted us warmly. Even commenting on my brides dress. (What women wouldn’t appreciate that)
Service was wonderful, food was delicious, atmosphere was outstanding!
We can’t wait for our next visit!
Great food!! Fantastic Atmosphere, highly recommended.
As usual, excellent food with top-notch service. Can't ask for more for a dining experience.
We enjoyed a special dinner for our anniversary. Service was outstanding the entire time and they gave us each a glass of champagne to celebrate. The food was fantastic. Looking forward to our next visit.
Such a pretty place. Sitting outside is the best. Presentation of the food was wonderful.
I would definitely go back again. The food was good and they were very accommodating to my daughter whos is vegan. The Chef sent out a beautifully presented plate of veggies and black beans that were delicious. It was definitely appreciated and much better than just a salad option. We all enjoyed our food from the salsify entree, to the salmon dish and the wonderful pork chop. Our server Christian was very helpful and friendly and professional. Thank you for a wonderful time and one of our highlights of our Gettysburg visit!
It's always a pleasure to eat here -- great food, service, and ambience. This note may say I live in Philadelphia, but that's wrong. I'm in Gettysburg, and residents here enjoy Sidney for special occasions or just a casual evening out -- its the "go to" place for everyone I know!
Excellent food and service. Took a little while to get served, but once underway we had great attentive servers. Most food was excellent, especially pita bread / hummus appetizer. Brazed beef had a bit of a burnt taste, but very tender. I recommend dining here.
Located in a former country club, the meal at Sidney’s was one of the best I’ve had in Gettysburg. The service was also among the best in Gettysburg. The setting is beautiful. The reason I took off a point or two was the bizarre manner in which you enter the dining room. After entering through the main door, guests have to trek through a banquet hall to be seated in the dining room. Bizarre. I would recommend this restaurant however. Great food and great service
Very good chef prepared food, waiter was extremely nice and knowledgeable, will be back
Still probably the best dinner restaurant in Gettysburg if you want interesting and tasty entrée choices, well prepared, friendly service, looking out over the former golf course. I had the Barramundi (Australian sea bass) and it was excellent. The small dining room we were in, however, also houses the bar and that detracts from the ambience. But there is dining on the porch.
I would definitely recommend Sidney at Willoughby Run to friends and family. We celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary and Sidney at Willoughby Run made it even more special. My husband and I will dine there again. Awesome restaurant.
We had a delicious coniglio con pappardelle, with a sauce that only Chef Anise could have come up with.
Single waiter was competent but seemed harried, with the result that the atmosphere was needlessly cold. Having dined at Sydney’s several times, this experience was disappointing.
This was a delightful surprise. I debated about rating it outstanding and decided to hold back simply because, while this was a wonderful experience, I have been to a restaurant or two in my life that I would rank outstanding..and they are totally unique and in exotic locales. We were so pleased wth the quality of the food, the service and our waiter, and loved the ambience which is an interesting cross between a bit of upscale decor yet still friendly and casual feeling. I would not hesitate to recommend this place. We loved it.
