My wife and I visited for lunch in search of the best lobster roll ! We live in Anguilla, British West Indies and were on a New England loop in September. Castle Hill needs to show the folks in Portland, Maine how it is done. Simply the best, and we ate a lot of lobster rolls during the two weeks.... More

Stopped by while in town for lunch. Found the pricing on the higher end, but must say, "best lunch ever". My wife had the lobster roll, while I the burger. Potato wedges to die for. All very much enjoyed. Wine list and view not bad either. Will make sure to return when in the area.

We were not able to eat at Castle Hill during our trip but did manage to stop by for a drink overlooking the water and enjoyed both well-mixed drinks and a lovely sunset. A terrific place to relax and regroup after touring the mansions.

My wife and some friends visited Castle Hill for brunch this past weekend. We take brunch seriously and had heard good things, so we were pretty excited. Originally, we wanted to sit outside, but we were told there would be a wait, so we sat in the dining room with a view of the sea. We immediately noticed that there... More

Lots of beautiful hotels, homes and sail boats... but what I appreciated most was the kind server who did not assume I knew what a quahog was or a lobster roll for that matter. Being from the South, I never heard of the local bivalve or knew exactly what a lobster roll was. She kindly and accurately described both. True... More

This experience overall was wonderful. They had free valet parking. We did not have reservations and they told us it would be an hour and 15 minutes to get a table on a Sunday afternoon. We found a place to sit on adirondack chairs where they had cocktail service for drinks & little appetizers. We ordered wine & a cheese... More

I was traveling on business, and decided to splurge for a meal, and I am glad I did. The location of the property is right on Naragansett Bay, overlooking the ocean.
