“Great food, slow service”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

The food at The Castle was delicious! All five of us tried something different and each dish was excellent. The only drawback for me was the service. Every time we needed a drink refill, we had to ask. Every time. That got to be annoying. And each course of food was very slow in coming to the table. Fortunately for us, we were five friends from college getting together for the weekend so we didn't mind the extra time to sit and talk. I definitely recommend this restaurant, but not if you're in a hurry. Take a night to linger over some delicious food.

“Something really special”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

There comes a time when we all need a fine dining experience and The Castle is our top choice when we're visiting in Natchez. First, how can you beat the charm and beauty of the magestic Dunleith Mansion at the entrance to the property. But the polished service and high quality food is equal to the setting. I found the seafood mixed grill outstanding and my wife couldn't stop raving about a seafood cassoulet with layers of crab and shrimp. We're from South Louisiana where seafood is king but The Castle clearly executes their seafood dishes with distinction. We were very pleased that we could make our reservations on-line and we not only received a e-mail reminder but also a thank-you note post dinner. Take someone you like to The Castle and enjoy a most pleasant dining experience.

“Shakey Beginning”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

When we arrived at The Castle, we had to find some one to assist us with our reservation; we were hoping we hadn't made a mistake in choosing this restaurant. I'm happy to say that was the only negative in an otherwise pleasurable evening. Our waiter, Bryant P., did an outstanding job. He paced our courses very well. We were able to share our Blackberry spinach salad and the mixed seafood entree (tuna, shrimp, and scallops). Both were excellent. Our window side table provided a lovely view and a romantic setting. This was our first visit to The Castle. We were very happy with our choice.

“Too hyped”
Reviewed May 9, 2013 via mobile

Wish I could say we had a wonderful meal in this lovely setting, but I can't. Perhaps it was an off night, but there were very few people there, and the food, for both of us, was very lacking in preparation and flavor. There are any number of other places we enjoyed much more. We didn't even take home the leftovers, a first for us. sorry.

“elegance and fun”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

with the exception of a bad Valentines Special night, which was expensive....the food is usually very good and a really nice place to sit down and enjoy a great meal.
