Something For Everyone

This is a very good restaurant in Blue Hill, very convenient with a very diverse menu. The night I ate there recently, we sat outside and it was quite pleasant, but for a few mosquitoes. I had vegetarian chili inside of a baked potato which was very good as well as different! This restaurant is... read more

Pizza comes in many ways, the ribs came badly. I ordered ribs - I should have know better but the limited menu, and my taste buds had ODEED on pizza.

Enjoyed a delicious Spinach & Goat Cheese Salad with carrot vinaigrette, pine nuts and apricots. We travel a lot and this was the first time I'd had a pizza with grilled fiddleheads (seasonal) and lemon-herbed goat cheese. It was one of those meals that you close your eyes and smile after each bite. My husband had a wonderful meat-loaded calzone.... More

We called and ordered two take-out pizzas - one pepperoni and the other was margarita. They were both delicious and ready in about 20 minutes. Looking forward to going back!

The Barncastle is a great place to stay and eat. It's very unique in the way this building has been made. We of course had pizza along with salads. Very fresh. We love the way the pizza is made, and finally found a restaurant where things are made and not frozen!!

The Barncastle is set in a wonderful old house with quaint rooms and on Wednesdays--live music. We had three different kinds of pizzas: old stand by of pepperoni and black olive, the Athenian and the Sea Smoke. The Sea Smoke and Athenian were exceptional and definitely recommend.

Wood fired oven produces georgeous pizza with a whole host of toppings. Caesar salad a disaster. Had to send it back. Service very slow. Good beers on tap.

We thoroughly enjoyed the food. I had the sausage, spinach and mushroom lasagna and hubby had the full rack of ribs. Both delicious. We enjoyed looking at the incredible wood work and amazing architecture. The waitress was friendly and witty. The flourless chocolate cake was decadent!

Ate here for convenience, because we stayed here. I was pleasantly surprised. Great, fresh salad, ok crab cakes, excellent beer. Service was great, staff very friendly. We stayed on in the pub portion for a pleasant drink after dinner.
