Nothing like sitting on the patio at Castle Hill, overlooking Newport Harbor, with the finest food in all of Newport. Great service, too. $$$

If you are there on a sunday, go for brunch and enjoy some live jazz music. Try to eat on the lawn, weather permitting, for some breathtaking views.

Thank you for joining us for Brunch this past Sunday. We have the live music year round on Sundays even when brunch is moved indoors during the winter. So glad you enjoyed yourself, and we're looking forward to seeing you again soon, Anthony More

My son and I enjoyed a wonderful lunch at this picture perfect café. The drive up to Castle Hill could not have been more beautiful, and the lobster rolls that we ordered were so gorgeous (and delicious) that we took a picture of them to tease the rest of the family back home! Our waitress could have offered me another... More

Had the most beautiful lunch this weekend at Castle Hill. We were on a time crunch because we had to make a boat trip and the traffic in town was crazy due to the folk fest. The staff at castle hill got us in and out perfectly! I only wish we could have stayed longer. We had a beautiful outside... More

I cannot think of a more perfect setting for lunch on a nice summer afternoon. Had lunch outside at the Castle Hill inn this afternoon while on a visit to Newport. The service was great and the restaurant was close to full even at mid-day when we had lunch after a day of sightseeing. We opted for simple fare. My... More

We're glad you enjoyed lunch at Castle Hill! The banana split is a new menu item that is surprising us in how many guests are ordering, must be something to say for summer nostalgia. Hope to see you again soon for another great experience, Anthony More

An elegant New England location, the views at the outdoor cafe cannot be beat. The menu is more casual, though certainly pricey for what you get. The salads are decent and the sandwiches and crab cakes are a bit better. Go early before the lunch rush or be prepared to sit on the lawn In an adirondack chair and have... More

Thank you for coming to join us for lunch at Castle Hill. The "lunch rush" is as hard to predict as the weather sometimes, so you're right it is best to be ready to take in the sights from an Adirondack chair if you've got time. Hope to see you again soon, Anthony More

We had lunch on the outdoor deck of the Castle Hill Inn on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon in June. We were a group of 10 family members ready to depart Newport after a family wedding the evening before and this restaurant was suggested by a friend of one of us. It surpassed my expectations. A more magnificent view cannot be... More

You have to be timely or you may not be able to order breakfast! They balked initially, but made an exception for my spouse and brought her a traditional breakfast item even though we had moved past brunch into the true lunch hour. Quite accommodating wouldn't you say?

My daughter and I brought my husband to Castle Hill for his birthday in June. It was recommended by a friend, and we were not disappointed. We had a great table and the service was impeccable. We sat outside and stayed for over 2 hours and didn't want to leave. The view was awesome. We had a pretzel bagel, a... More

They never disappoint. The food is consistently good. Restrooms could stand some work though! Only 3 small stalls in the ladies room for the whole lawn, deck, bars, patio seating and dining room. Always a line!
