We love dining at the Castle Hill inn. The food is exceptional and a great variety to choose from.The chees platter was very tasty, the dishes are very different and not something you would find anyplace else. The service is superior.

The restaurant location is a scenic driving experience no matter which way you come on Ocean Drive We had the three course dinner with the evening's special tomato bisque and... More

The place to be for a beautiful sunset overlooking the harbor entrance. However, the bar staff was terrible. Rude, obnoxious and inattentive are the only qualities that the bartenders possessed. Waiting at the end of the bar for 15 minutes before even being addressed was ridiculous. Then to be told by the bartender that he would not serve us unless... More

This is one of the best dining experiences you will ever have in your life. Dinner is pricey and proper attire is required. So worth it. Lunch is more affordable and casual. Menu is prix fixe, very creative and delicious. Castle Hill is everything you expect from expensive dining- superb food and outstanding service. Don't forget to ask for a... More

We had a wonderful at Castle Hill. Sitting by the window in the round room, we watched the sunset as we enjoyed our three course meal with wine parings. the staff was pleasant, attentive, and knowledgeable. You don't often experience such a marvelous combination of food, service, and location. i could not have asked for more.

Beauty in every direction. Little too expensive for me, but great for that special romantic dinner. Or just cocktails and appetizers on the deck.

This is a new addition. THE LAWN restaurant - as the name says serves the food and drink on the lawn. From their own menu. The informal seating is in Adirondack chairs set up on the lawn in front of the Inn. No tables. The chairs were always there for the Inns' guests to use, have a drink, but food... More

Celebrated our anniversary with a three course dinner at The Castle Hill Dining Room. We decided to be a little daring and opted for the pairings selection as well. The food was outstanding, perfectly prepared and finely seasoned and the pairings were interesting and added to our experience, as did the staff. Be forewarned, it will be an expensive meal... More
