We are privately owned and managed by Chef Neil Annis. Chef Neil and his culinary team create amazing dishes using fresh, local, clean ingredients. Much of what we create is "farm to table", based on season, market, and what is the best of local ingredients. Every event menu is customized, therefore, we do not have "packages" like most other venues. Chef and the event coordinator work closely ensure each host is receiving what they want at an affordable and fair cost to them.

Our son goes to college in the area and when we visit we look for new dining options on the area- this is a great find, good food in a pleasant setting. We all liked the lobster ravioli!!

Everything was perfect! The server was extremely helpful and informative. The Ravioli and Grilled Monk Fish not only tasted amazing but were perfectly fulfilling. The timing was perfect. The amazing, WARM, COOL, AND ARCTIC CAPPUCCINO was absolutely scrumptious and was the ultimate dessert to top for an overall incredible dining experience for our date night! I highly Sydney At Willougby's!

What a disappointment! This restaurant came highly recommended from friends and I thought it would be a lovely pre-Valentine dinner. Not so. I questioned why we were seated in the informal bar area (placemats instead of tablecloths) and I was told that "the servers like to fill up the bar tables first." What happened to the customer's preference?
We are an elderly couple, obviously dressed for a special evening out, and we were given a bar area table seated next to a two-year old!
The service was generally fine and the food was reasonably good (not extraordinary as I had expected), but this was not fine dining. For the money, the Inn at Herr Ridge is preferable in every way, including food.

As always, Sidney didn't disappoint - the food was super fresh, my burger cooked perfectly and the desserts not only looked beautiful, they tasted that way. Four of us had the burgers, all cooked differently and we were all happy with the results. Our one 'outlier' kept raving about her chicken wrap and home made chips. The rest of us all enjoyed our french fries.

The food and its presentation was excellent. However the ambience of the restaurant was poor. We arrived at a table and were seated in an inappropriate space with no table Linens. The wait staff tied to be friendly but was very unsophisticated compared to the food offerings. It takes away from such a gourmet meal to be in a setting that is very mediocre.

Whenever we want something different or special, we go to Sydney at Willoughby Run. There is always something unique on the menu plus some standard fare. The flavors are wonderful and the presentation is excellent. The desserts look too good to eat but they are delicious. The drink selection is varied with something for everyone.

Consistently excellent food& service! A dining oasis in a tourist area (Gettysburg) with no other decent restaurant! Lunch and dinner selections reliably good, with caring wait staff. Kudos to chef Neil Annis . Also like the original Sidney in East Berlin, PA.

I am always pleased by my experience here. It is clearly the best restaurant in Gettysburg and our favorite.

The ambiance of the dining room could have been improved if there had been space without the bar in the room. There are two very large banquet rooms off the small dining room/bar that I'm sure those are used for events. But it would seem that somehow a small area of one of those rooms could be used for the regular restaurant dining?

The food, ambiance, beverage offerings and service were all stellar, as is usually the case. Only negative is that for a vegetarian, options are quite limited. Highly recommend Sidney, though. Special place.

We celebrated our 22nd anniversary at Sidney and it was amazing. Our service was amazing and everything we ate was incredible.

Excellent, as always, from arrival to dessert. The food is always top notch and the service and attention to detail are impeccable. Friendly and accommodating.

This was our first time here, combining a birthday celebration event/dinner that was nothing less than "Top Gun" in all aspects of dining experience. Our waitress provided service during our meal that was second to none along with some jovial conversation that kept the evening spirited. From appetizers to desert the food superb, with wonderful selections to choose from.

If I were to add a recommendation for consideration to this review, it would be to add lighting to the Sidney at Willoughby Run sign located at the entrance on Rt. 30, so that it's visible to patrons in the evening who aren't familiar to the area.

We look forward to our next visit.

We had a delightful lunch -- fabulous seared tuna -- followed by excellent Irish coffee. It was a memorable meal!
