Location, location, location! And excellent food

We did the Sunday lawn brunch, and I'm very glad that we did. We arrived on time for our 1:15 reservations, and were seated immediately at a corner table next to a jazz trio, with an unimpeded view of Narragansett Bay. My wife had the watermelon and burrata salad with fried green tomatoes. I... read more

This is a review of the Terrace outdoor dining area! Beautiful scenery of boats drifting down the ocean with Newport Bridge in background....lovely lawn set with chairs for viewing and also food. The Terrace is lovely and the menu is good, a bit pricey for lunch-- but the view makes it worth the trip

Desert could be a little better selection. My wife had a seafood dish that seemed to take care of the better part of a... More

A few friends and I went to The Inn to enjoy the beautiful day on their lawn, have dinner and drive a significant distance home. When we arrived at 3:00, we asked the hostess if we should make a reservation for 5:00 dinner, and she advised us that there would be no problem at that time. We enjoyed drinks on... More

Unbelievably beautiful setting, just stunning views of the ocean, the bridge the sail boats. Having a drink at sunset on the lawn with these views it doesn't get better than this. As to the fine dining restaurant. Again just amazing setting. Wine list outstanding. Food: scallops and ahi crudo both very good. Angus tartare bland. Fluke main course bland. Simple... More

This place is simply enchanted. The lawn and terrace overlook the bay and the bridge, and you can sip your cocktails and chat as the sailboats drift by. And everything from the drinks to the desserts - just delicious. We will definitely find our way back here.

Had a lovely time having drinks on the lawn last night. The view is spectacular as always. What made the night really special was our server, Martina. So lovely and friendly and a really hard worker. Thanks Martina for making our short time there special.

We were told to come to Castle Hill Inn for drinks and to watch the sunset. We arrived by 7pm and "found" two Adirondack chairs just waiting for us. A very nice waitress came over to take our order. My husband and I decided to stay for dinner (you can't reserve outside tables) so we gave them our names and... More

I went there to try to have lunch today with my family and children and the valet person "Mark" was absolutely awful to us. He told us as we were driving off to "go away" with an inappropriate hand gesture. I was completely appalled that he would do and say that in front of my children! I will never return... More

I'm terribly sorry to hear that your experience at Castle Hill was marred by the interaction you've described here. This of course is not how our guests should be greeted or spoken with, and I am troubled by how this came to be. I hope that you might find a moment to get in touch with me directly so that... More
