The Barncastle, as the name implies, does look somewhat like a castle. Besides being a restaurant it also has guest rooms upstairs but I'm not familiar with those although I've been told they're nice. The downstairs is the restaurant, which is really an old house, with the actual rooms used as the restayrant area. It is very pretty inside. There... More

Comfortable chow house. Wood fired pizza was our favorite item on our only trip here. Great crust, sauce and more ingredients than you can ask for. We got there early so service was prompt and accurate. Price was reasonable. Would stop again if ever in the area.

We stayed in one of the rooms and it was unique, warm, and romantic. Since then we have bought a home in the area and used to love the restaurant there but have been disappointed three times in a row now so I thought I'd submit a review so they can be aware of some issues. The servers can't get... More

The food was very good; I wish I could say the same about the service. We had the impression right from the beginning that the server was very nervous and under pressure. She was very short with us and not friendly at all. At the end of dinner, our checks were presented and there was not a hint of appreciation... More

We had no idea where to dine, especially as it's off season, and we got a recommendation from a local young woman to go to Barncastle. The building is huge, and, true to its name, looks like a castle made from a barn. The interior was not fancy, but well-appointed. There were bookshelves and artwork throughout the dining room. We...

We had dinner this past weekend and found Barncastle to be a good choice. Note that the Blue Hill area isn't exactly a dining Mecca, but this place was recommended by the folks that own the cottage we stayed at and it lived up to their comments. They are locally sourced which is something my wife and I look for.... More

We stopped by this restaurant on the way back from a visit to Acadia. We had to wait quite some time for a table but it turned out to be well worth it. We all ordered pizza and it was excellent. The blueberry pie was also delicious.

Barncastle is an inn, but we eat there regularly when in the area. Pleasant old building, friendly staff, known for their pizzas but other food is great. Love their mussels.

I have always wanted to eat here but the food was lack luster and average at best. The mussels were tasteless and might have just been boiled in water not the parsley garlic wine broth on the menu. When I asked for extra parsley for the broth as I could not find a speck the waitress said the kitchen did... More
