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...

We enjoyed the Thanksgiving buffet dinner at Castle Hill Inn. Our waitress was very attentive and helped make our evening memorable. The wine list is very interesting with many great choices. We look forward to returning.

Food at the Castle Hill Inn is always wonderful. Small private dining rooms or the large all glass dining room which we prefer. Chef always outdoes himself. Cannot wait to go back!

We arrived just after noon and there was not one open seat however we noticed a couple of bar diners were finishing up their brunch and being in the business we knew it would... More

Thank you for providing the feedback, while it is painful to read it is necessary. We use these reviews, and our internal surveys, to constantly see where we can improve. I'm sorry that on this most recent visit, we fell quite short of our goals and your expectations. Restaurant Week is a time where we offer substantially promotional pricing and... More

We took advantage of Newport Restaurant Week special offerings to have lunch here. The day was perfect and the 180-degree view from our table of Narragansett Bay and the Pell Bridge was spectacular. The place was packed, but we had reservations for 1:30. We ate the three-course lunch and drank very slowly and didn't leave until after 4. It just... More

I have always wanted to have a meal at the Castle Hill Inn. With Newport Restaurant week, I was able to make a reservation at the Lawn for brunch on Sunday. They offer valet parking or you can park yourself. Once we got inside, we were seated immediately at a table next to a window with a beautiful view of... More

We ate in the bar for restaurant week brunch. Outstanding. Lobster roll had plenty of lobster and great taste. Rhode Island oysters were very tasty. Outstanding Bloody Mary. I'll be back.

We ate here during restaurant week, but ate from the regular price fix menu. Everything was perfect from atmosphere to servers to food. We both felt the seafood was the best we have ever had, both the cod and the halibut. Root vegetable soup had an amazing presentation. Top notch in all ways. It was our first time there and... More

Looking for a special place for a special night? We tried the Inn at Castle Hill for our anniversary "date" this year. If you like to DINE and enjoy the ambience of an old Victorian mansion on a bluff overlooking Narragansett Bay, get a window seat and enjoy. Reservations are easy to do through Open Table. Off season is a... More

Castle Hill is the perfect place for lunch while you're in Newport. You cannot beat the view or the ambiance. You are greater by name when your server approaches the table and the food is delicious. I had a cheeseburger and he got the fired chicken sandwich which was HUGE. Both were delicious highly recommend! We will be making it... More
