Don't be shy, come eat at the barn!

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.

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.
