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

Stopped by here after lunching in BlunHill and riding around Brooksville area for the afternoon . This is a charming place in a large home with many different dining area and an extended menu where you can fine dine or you can have great pizza. The bar area is small and nice as well. All the food coming out looked... More

This is a good option for creative pizza and beers. Pastas are also good but not exceptional. I recommend sticking to the basics on the menu.

My meal could not have been better. Fresh food, huge salad with all fresh hand cut veggies. Yum. Good dressing. I had the chicken burrito and it was just the way i like them - packed with chicken and black beans and a spicy sauce.

Thank bcooper01
