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

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
