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 a lovely lunch at the Castle Hill Inn overlooking the water. Waitstaff were exceptionally attentive and the food was outstanding. We started with the PEI mussels which were cooked to perfection. Our entrees were the salmon and scallops. Each prepared exquisitelly and the presentation was beautiful. Definately worth trying when in Newport!

...and the best bonus are the spectacular views! What a location! We were celebrating an anniversary there with about 25 guests, thus I did not expect impeccable service; the food was mostly good, although I wouldn't call it creative. I did not like the ribeye steak, for example. However, overall, it is a nice place - recommended.

Castle Hill is a fantastic restaurant any time of day in any season. The only sight to rival the beautiful water during the day is the lighted Newport bridge and boats at night. The food and service were excellent. On the chilly night we were there last, the mulled wine was outstanding! Very highly recommended (the restaurant and the wine)!

Thank you so much for your very positive review. The mulled wine is one of our favorites, especially this year with our never-ending snow. Hope to see you again soon, Anthony B. More

We wanted to visit the Castle Hill lighthouse and looked at the Menu on the Lawn and decided to make an afternoon out of it. What a good idea. Lunch was good, I had a Salad and my husband had the crab cakes they were both very good. The service was very good too. But the best part was the... More

Castle Hill is by far one of my all time favorites in any season. Yesterday was a somewhat cold dreary day but once entering the atomsphere was overcome by the warmth and setting. We ahd lunch which was excellent as was the staff. Jonathan was our server, extremely pleasant, knowledgeable and fun. His courtesy was exactly what one would expect... More

I'm going to say it...the food was great and nearly on par with meals from some of the great chefs (Michael Mina, Patrick O'Connell). We loved dining here for a number of reasons. The selection of appetizers was fantastic... including salads, beef tartare and lemon cured fluke. My entree, while not the best I've ever had, offered a variety of... More

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.

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
