The Mansion's chefs artfully craft fresh local fish, regional meats, and produce into a distinctly native, seasonal menu, served in four dining rooms within the Inn. On The Lawn, the epitome of classic New England al fresco dining, think small plates and summer cocktails delivered right to your Adirondack chair. From creative cocktails to appetizers to desserts, imaginative presentation and exceptional taste characterize Castle Hill Inn's fine Dining Experiences.

We had our 15th anniversary dinner there, and it was very special. (It was a cold night with only 8 couples; of those, 3 [including us] were there for an anniversary, 1 was there to celebrate their engagement, and 1 was there to plan their wedding. Might have been other occasions, but you can only learn so much while eaves... More

The food is fresh and well prepared. I consider myself somewhat of a foodie and I enjoyed the regular entrees and the tasting menu as much as I do the ones in NYC. Even if you are not staying in the Castle Hill Inn which you must do at some point, make it a point to eat at the Castle... More

This restaurant had been recommended to us by some locals and so we stopped here for a light lunch and everything was perfect (except the weather). Lovely setting, lovely room, excellent service, very good menu and delicious food - I wish we had had time to come back for dinner.

Amazing location with wonderful views. We went in the winter and it was just as beautiful. Perfect place for cocktails. We had appetizers in the bar which had fantastic service and great drinks. The cheese plate was perfectly balanced. Very romantic and quiet. Our impromptu stop here has encouraged us to book a weekend!

The buttermilk fired chicken sandwich was delicious and not heavy. The special of the day was pulled chicken BBQ sandwich and it was really good. the service was terrific and the view was really lovely.

We met friends here for Christmas Day Dinner. It's a beautiful location and is small enough to feel intimate. We had a lovely dinner and opted for the 3 course price fixed meal. I had the roasted rack of lamb for my entree and it was wonderful! Everything was portioned appropriately so that we ate well, but didn't feel gorged.... More

My husband and I travel the country looking for the best clam chowder! We have found it and now we need to ask for their recipe! You will have an amazing experience and nothing will ever compare. Don't forget a mouth watering mimosa too!
