Very good food. Terrific Prix Fixe

Castle Street serves very good food, has friendly professional service, and their Prix Fixe (available Sun-Thurs. off season) is a 3 course steal at $29 including tea/coffee. Two apps that hit above their weight are the Mung Bean pancake with scallions and a soy drizzle, and the eggplant... read more

The food is great, i have never had a less than great experience. On the weekends they have great music. The service is excellent & they have great wines by the glass ( Seven Falls Cabernet for the red wine drinkers). The Cafe is totally relaxing after a crazy week in NYC. We never get tired of the Cafe.

On our night it was a disappointing miss. Could have been a result of being New Years eve and staff being to busy in the kitchen, but not a great excuse. Our dinner was not hot when it came out. Flavor was fair. I had veal and wife had duck and overall just average.

It would be very difficult to select a better restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary than the Castle St. Café. The food and drink were delicious, and the staff made sure we had our special table. A beautiful, warm "old school" dining experience, and a place to see and be seen, especially at the holidays.

I have been to Castle St over 15 times. Sometimes its spectacular and others a major disappointment. We usually go for Mother's Day & Easter but last year will be my last visit. They advertise a menu online for the occasion but its different when you get there. I saw surf & turf and was excited to have it since... More

We had dinner at this restaurant with dear friends. It was our first time , but our friends are regulars. For my wife and me the food was average plus. The meat was OK but the French fries were extremely thin and thus didn't retain any heat so they were served cold. Portions were small for me. Our friends enjoyed... More

This little bar/restaurant is a great find in this cool little town. They have live music and everyone in there was super friendly. Like going in and meeting a bunch of new friends. Go on the 3rd Friday of the month and you can hear the Wanda Houston Band. You won't be disappointed!
