Delicious food for a New Years Eve lunch. I got the lobster roll and hubby got a burger. Both delish. Be sure to ask for the main dining room so you can get the best view--surrounded by water. Service was good. Reservations are important. This was our 2nd time here. Back in 2012, we had come for lunch in late... More

The Castle Hill bar offers food and drinks inside and on the lawn. The area tends to fill with locals and tourists on weekends creating a loud but friendly scene.

My wife and I went here for a pre-Christmas dinner on the day before Christmas eve. It was an absolutely outstanding dining experience. Although it is a bit pricey, the service is remarkable and the food is absolutely delicious. The atmosphere is second to none. We definitely will be back!

We were staying at the Inn, so we got to experience Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. The views can't be beat and in the summer, choose to eat outside on their large patio. For Breakfast/Brunch I could not get enough of the Lobster Hash. They are generous with the large pieces of lobster. Dinner in the dining room, we opted for... More

Fantastic evening with friends enjoying delectable cuisine! Over the top service with a smile! We truly had a fantastic time and the food was also very very good! The duck was the best ever and I would recommend this dish. Looking forward to visiting here again next Summer!

Five our to five stars is still an understatement when talking about our dining experience at Castle Hill Inn. We have dined at the Castle Hill Inn in the past and have always been amazed with the food, beverages, service, atmosphere, etc. On our most recent visit yesterday, we selected a four course dining experience with many choices for each...
