Food was excellent. Dessert
Food was excellent. Dessert fabulous! Untimely that we arrived just after a bus of tourists and the wait staff seemed somewhat flustered. Menu was also limited that evening because of the two buses. Also those large groups made it more noisy than it probably would be on a normal evening. Had to wait for menus and had to ask for bread when the other tables had already received some. Waiter was very knowledgeable of the menu and had great suggestions. A great place for a special occasion, just ask when making a reservation if they are expecting any buses.

I would definitely recommend
I would definitely recommend this restaurant and period plantation in Natchez. The food was really good. We had drinks first in the English pub style bar downstairs where it seemed to be a place for the locals to also hang out (always a good sign).

When in Natchez, I look forward to dinner at the Castle.

We live in St. Francisville and look forward to dining at the Castle -- it is probably the best restaurant experience in the region. Only wish we could go more often. Michael

A great way to start the day!
When my husband and I arrived at The Castle Restaurant for our lunch reservation we were seated immediately at the prettiest table in the dining room. We were in the alcove with the windows overlooking the pool and wooded area behind the restaurant. It was a beautiful blue sky day and a great view. The table setting was lovely. Out waitress Rhonda was a delight. We had the special of the day which was blackened catish with diry rice and southern sucotash. It was wonderful. We were served a special treat of sweet potato biscuits warm from the oven just after our meal and the biscuits were a gift from heaven. The restaurant is very pretty and romantic. We can't wait to go back again.

Coming back if time permits
It was simply a wonderful experience. I definitely recommend it if southern hospitality is truly to be enjoyed.

We enjoyed an excellent lunch
We enjoyed an excellent lunch and great service at The Castle Restaurant at Dunleith. Lunch is a more affordable meal if you're on a tight budget. The restaurant is set in the original carriage house of Dunleith. The fireplace, table linens, glassware, and furnishings create an elegant atmosphere. Our table for two in a windowed alcove made the event even more special.

We were glad to get a reservation
We were glad to get a reservation here. The grounds and buildings here are so
amazing. We enjoyed the brunch and felt it was a very reasonable price. The
food was good (however, I did not eat my pork chop as it was so tough, I had to
stop and quit chewing).

A wonderful evening was spent
A wonderful evening was spent at the Castle by a group of four ladies. The setting is beautiful, located on the grounds of Dunlieth Plantation. Our server, Eric, was quite knowledgeable and entertaining concerning the menu and wine list. Our meal was delicious and his wine recommendations were spot on. We were never rushed and spent a very relaxing evening, enjoying a wonderful meal. I would definitely return.

Eric was a helpful congenial
Eric was a helpful congenial server. Chef even came out to discuss ingredients in a dish with me. An enjoyable experience. Tuna was perfectly prepared.Salad was creative and delicious.

Worth a visit
A very nice evening. After the opulence of Dunleith, the room is a bit of a letdown. The food and service, however, were very good. My wife's entrée, duck breast, was tender and beautifully cooked. Portions were very generous.
4/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was delicious. We
The food was delicious. We started out with the fried green tomatoes which were by far the best we'd ever had. Then we ordered the sweet and sour pork--the fanciest BBQ I've ever tasted--, and the redfish which tasted delicious for someone who is not normally a huge fan of fish. Our server, Eric, was very welcoming, friendly, and helpful. There wasn't much of a view, but the open brick walls were rustic and artsy. It was nice to have a somewhat secluded table for our romantic evening. The dessert was also great. The only thing that was a little disappointing is we asked to have the rest of our food boxed and we never got them before we left.

From the moment we walked
From the moment we walked through the castle doors, we stepped into a dining experience. The service was attentive and timely, and we never had to ask for any refills or any attention. The flair of the presentation matched the unique twist on standard dishes. We would definitely return and try other dishes. Also, by eating at the restaurant, we could have returned to Dunleith the following day for a tour.
4/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Another great evening
The Castle is already one of our favorites but our last visit was even more impressive than usual. The new menu items were great and as always, the wine list impeccable. Although everything was delicious, the white chocolate bread pudding... to die for! We will continue to regularly dine at The Castle. Chef Seyfarth & staff prove over and over that they will never disappoint. Thanks for a great evening.

Natchez at its best
Sister and I took 83 y.o. mom for visit. The Castle was perfect for easy accessibility and unrushed dining. Server was new and ,so, inexperienced . She eagerly found answers if she did not know. The best bread pudding ever eaten! Highly recommend The Castle.

Bring Along Your Patience
The food at The Castle is delicious! It is just lacking a bit in the service department. Fortunately for us, we were friends reuniting for the weekend so we enjoyed having time to sit and talk. Every time we needed a beverage refill, we had to ask. That was a bit frustrating. This is the same criticism I heard over and over when I told people we were dining at The Castle...great food, slow service.

Good venue for Sunday brunch
Great location and beautiful grounds. Very courteous staff. Food was okay.
5/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed the lunch treat. Waitstaff was exhausted from a big wedding two days prior so they weren't too friendly but all else was nice.
5/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
The ambience and meal was absolutely wonderful. The service and experience was excellent.
5/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
We enjoyed our experience very much. The food was outstanding and the service was great.
I am sure we will try to come again and maybe get to stay at the B&B

Fathers Day Diner
Took my husband for Fathers Day. It was his first time to eat there and he loved it!
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Place to Dine!
The Crab Cakes were the best I've ever had! They were much bigger than what you normally get, with huge pieces of lump crabmeat and almost no filler. The spicey sauce that accompanied it was so good that we asked the waitress to bring us extra. We spread it on our dinner rolls and our Sauted Redfish.
6/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
This establishment serves up good food on the
grounds of a grand old home now housing a B&B.
Too bad there are few windows and no view of the
magnificent grounds around the Dunleith mansion.

I really love this restaurant.
I really love this restaurant. I love the little pub downstairs and then the restaurant upstairs is lovely. It is a very pleasing
dining experience. The wait staff is always very prompt and helpful. They act like the genuinely care about making the

Our evening at the castle
Our evening at the castle was a highlight of our holiday in USA. The restaurant has a relaxed ambience and the waiting staff were attentive and very friendly. Brooke was our waitress and she made us feel very welcome. The food and wine selections were excellent. The price was on the high side but well worth it for a special occassion.
7/2/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great service and so nice
We had lunch here. Food was good and staff was amazing. I needed to do some work so they reset the router so I could get the Internet access - then they let us set up in the pub bar to work for a few hours. No pressure to leave or to buy more. When the bartender arrived - very friendly - I had a makers mark mint julep that I highly recommend. Overall, a great experience.
7/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
We celebrated our anniversary here. It's the perfect place in Natchez to celebrate any special occasion. We started out with a couple of cocktails down in the Pub (Pimm's Cup & Mint Juleps). We ordered the crab cakes and fried green tomatoes as appetizers. The crab cakes were very good. For dinner we ordered the Castlette and the NY Strip along with wines to accompany them. Both were very tasty. We also enjoy a complimentary tour of the Dunlieth mansion the next morning and the tour guide was fantastic.
7/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our dinners were delicious, the ambience very nice, and the servers were accommodating. There isn't a huge selection on the menu, but with a range from Swordfish to steak to duck, there should be something to please everyone.

A trip to Natchez isn't complete
A trip to Natchez isn't complete without dinner at the Castle! The redfish was incredible and the white chocolate bread pudding with blueberries finished the meal nicely. Splendid service as well and I love to gaze at the mansion.

This restaurant was recommended by a friend The reception was friendly and made us feel so welcome. The food and service were excellent. Would definitely return.

More than we expected!
The surroundings of the restaurant upon arriving were breathtaking! Our waiter was very courteous and friendly. The restaurant was small and quaint which we liked very much and the food was outstanding. Best "Godchaux" salad I've ever eaten. The complimentary tour of the Dunleith home the next morning was an extra nice bonus. We left there very satisfied and hope to visit again.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
This restaurant was one of the best I've been to in a while. Perfect for special occasions and very friendly. Service was spectacular and so was the food. I have no bad remarks to make about the restaurant itself, servers or food. So glad I was able to enjoy this experience with my partner.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed out lunch at the Castle and tour of Dunleith. The Godchaux salad was fabulous!!! We would love to come again!

The best meal since St.Paul...
We've been traveling The Great River Road (Minnesota to The Gulf); The Castle was the best meal since St.Paul! Every ingredient was fresh, beautifully prepared and delicious. Service was gracious & attentive. We came for lunch and returned for breakfast !

Filet was perfection
Food was so good. My filet was the best I have had in a while. Cooked just the right temp!
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had the most amazing experience at the Castle. We were seated immediately. The server was prompt and friendly. My husband ordered steak with a crab sauce and said it was the best he had ever had! The crawfish mashed potatoes were my favorite. We will make this a "must do" anytime we are in Natchez.

Top Three Restaurants
We've been to this restaurant five times over the years. It has consistently served us some of our favorite food we've ever eaten!
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
There are several enjoyable restaurants in Natchez but The Castle at Dunleith is by far my favorite in town!! Excellent setting with the best dishes in town!! (not to mention the best wine list in town!!)

Favorite Natchez Restaurant
We have dinner here every time we come to Natchez. My favorite? The filet and the Godchaux salad. Their breakfast buffet is always delicious also!

Special Thanksgiving with friends
Special in every way! Could not have been improved on! This was our 4th Thanksgiving to eat at The Castle...it has become our tradition.
Our special compliments to our waitress, Theresa, I think that was her name, who did an outstanding job.
