We didn’t spend too much time here as it was nearing sundown and getting cold. Cute area with lots of parking. Great place for a walk or picnic!

It doesn't have any competition so the lines are long, the food overpriced but it is in a great location. Perfect example of how difficult it is to get ahead when the system is rigged.

A completely biased review as I have been going there for over 50 years. Once again I got the clams with bellies as I usually do and once again they were absolutely delicious. Highly recommended. Parking can be a challenge but be patient.

My friend and I took our sons to Castle Island for the day. They enjoyed running around, playing at the park and watching a cruise ship go by. Of course we had to get an ice cream from Sullivan’s, which was also good.

The park, beach area and grounds are always open. The fort itself has seasonal hours.

It's always open to walk there. The restaurant (Sullivan's) is seasonal, usually closed December to March or so. Sometimes they lock the close in parking gate at night, but there's plenty of places to park nearby.
