Everything was wonderful as always at Castle Hill. My friend and I wanted to watch the big rain storm on the water and Castle Hill was the perfect location. We ate at the outside bar and enjoyed the chowder, scallops and lobster roll. We saw the bartender making the blueberry lemonade and had to try it - what a perfect... More

We had the six course dinner with wine pairing, it was amazing! the wines they selected went perfectly with each course. I would highly recommend trying this when in Newport. We also had appetizers at the outside bar a couple times and enjoyed the atmosphere. The staff was always very accommodating. Great place!

This is one of the best location in Newport to see the bay and the bridge and to Watch those wonderful sail boats, We ate in the dinning room 20 years ago and the quality of food and service still remains. This is a place you enjoy a special meal almost sitting in the bay. You will be served with... More

We visit the Inn every year right before we leave for home. There is no better spot in Newport than Castle Hill to take in the scenery and beauty of Newport than on an Adirondack on the lawn, with the bay and the Newport Bridge as your view. Even if you don't have a reservation to sit outside, it doesn't... More

Very good food accompanied by the most beautiful view of the sunset and a fantastic waiter make a wonderful meal. Only choices are price-fixed or tasting menus makes this pricey. Save room for the glorious dessert.

Took the family to lunch and it was great. Start with a drink in an Adirondack chair on the hill taking in the views of Newport harbor. Started with a dozen oysters that were great, then had the turkey club which was very good. The portions are very big so you can skip an appetizer and still be satisfied. Finally,... More

This is the second time we've had lunch at Castle Inn. The first was in summer and they had tables outside, affording you a stunning view of the ocean. We went there again in May and were indoors. Food and service were very good. If you have the option, make sure you get a table outside.

Location, location, location! Plus, exemplary service and outstanding food! My (now) fiancé ordered a bottle of prosecco and then asked me to marry him. We enjoyed an incredibly romantic evening. I cannot imagine a more perfect scenario!

Our party of four went to Castle Hill upon the recommendation of our hosts in Newport. The setting on Ocean Drive is lovely and the weather permitted us to sit on the sun drenched terrace. Our waitress was cheerful, friendly and efficient. The food only lived partially up to the surroundings. The Chourizo and Clam cakes were more reminiscent of... More

While a bit on the expensive side, our twilight dining experience at Castle Hill was extremely pleasant. Upon arrival you will find that all parking is via complementary valet. The old mansion is beautifully situated on a hill overlooking the Newport Harbor. An open lawn sweeps down to the water, and is adorned with scattered Adirondack chairs. Very prompt staff... More
