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

We enjoyed a wonderful pizza meal here sitting in the outdoor area, overlooking the beautiful building and grounds. We were even allowed to bring our small dog to sit with us outside :)

Our daughter was in Blue Hill for the summer and suggested we meet her here for dinner at 5:30 on a Wednesday night. She said she'd been here many times and there was never a wait (we were on a tight timeline.) When we arrived, we were told there were no tables until 8:30 PM (so we went elsewhere.) There... More

Visited recently on a Monday night. The food was great. It was prepared and presented well. The kitchen staff know what they are doing. Unfortunately, the service was very slow. Our server never came back to see if our food was good or if we needed drink refills. Eventually, a hostess cleared our table, brought our check, and took our... More

We arrived at 6pm on a Monday night. Granted we had a party of 9 during high season but we were seated over an hour after arriving and sat in the bar. The place was packed. Food was average. We don't recommend the salads. The scallops and mussels appetizers were sold out. The calzones were good. Pizza was standard fare.... More

We split the steamed mussels and a pizza. The mussels were the very best we'd eaten out. Served in a chicken roaster with good crusty bread to soak up the ample, delicious broth. We then moved on to the pepperoni pizza - again very, very tasty. We had manhattans on the rocks and they were good too. Barncastle is on... More

It's a simple thing but this is the only restaurant we have been in where the server automatically brought water to the table and gave the kids theirs in kids cups. The food was great.

This was my first experience with spelt pizza dough and they seem to do it right at Barncastle. We had the Greek pizza twice and couldn't get enough of it. We wanted to avoid and noise from the music on Wednesday evenings so we were ushered into the furthest room from the pub area. However, upon leaving we found it... More

Went for a late lunch just when they opened for the day at 3 PM. We ate in the sunroom off the beautiful bar. We got a super salad with feta and apricots, clam chowder, delicious crab cakes, lasagna with white sausage, and pizza with clams and bacon with an Alfredo sauce. We had a couple ciders on tap that... More
