take-out for a picnic

I did not dine at a table, but chose dinners from the menu, took them to the town boat launch nearby and had picnic suppers gazing out across the water -- lovely. The food I had was very good (much better than your average picnic) and the service was fairly quick.

My husband and I were searching for a new place to eat in Blue Hill--over MLK Jr. Weekend, mind you. To our surprise, we found Barncastle, and it was wonderful! The building alone is worth the trip, but the prices were great, the food top notch, and the service friendly and quick. Loved the spelt crust on the pizza. We'll... More

In a town where there are few pizza options, this restaurant has delicious pizza! We have eaten here previously and their food is dependably good. It can be very busy, so either call ahead for reservations or call for a pizza to go.

After Labor Day, Blue Hill restaurants operate on pretty limited schedules. Barncastle stays open (not sure about their schedule, so check first) and is a terrific spot. Great pizzas, nice wine list and selection of local beers. Well run establishment in a comfortable setting.

Friends of ours had been here before and wanted us to give it a try. My son raves about this place so we went. The menu has something for everyone. We started our meal with a salad which was so fresh and the dressing was amazing. I shared one of the pizzas -broccoli, feta and walnuts. It had such a... More

There was a large, yet not over elaborate, choice of items on the menu. Service was efficient but perhaps too fast.

Average at best but not many other option in Blue Hill area. The atmosphere is great and the staff is friendly and helpful. The beer selection is good.

Liked the house atmosphere, the calzones, spanakopita, St. Louis ribs and so many more great things. Been there twice in the last week.

Barncastle is one of those restaurants that, in addition to enjoying excellent food, one also partakes in an unforgettable experience. The property and building are historical masterpieces I found myself wanting to explore and the owners have laid out the restaurant, pub, outdoor bar, and billiards room in a fashion that allowed me to do this. The food was pretty... More
