    Wonderful food and experience. Seated promptly. Beautiful ambience with candlelight dinner. Food and service was great. Only downside was the tables were seated pretty close together so you could hear other couples chatting.

    Visit the tavern, the manager is a treat to talk mixology with. The drinks were spot on - cosmo, aviation, martini and the old fashioned. The restaurant was very nice, great service and the food was very good. It all came together well and made our 40th wedding anniversary a special memory. We will definitely make plans to visit again in the near future

    The food and service was very good! The only complaint I have is they still had the Valentines Day menu My husband and I had looked ahead and picked things that we were excited to try from the regular menu. So we were a little disappointed with that. But we still had a nice evening.

    Our server, Leah, was incredible. Food was excellent, however the redfish was a bit smaller than anticipated. We were celebrating Valentines a little early and really appreciated a secluded table. After dinner we sat outside and finished our wine before going to the bar for after dinner drinks. Reece and Rick did a great job and offered good conversation. Overall we had a great experience

    This only applies to the brunch service. This was our first opportunity to visit the Dunlieth and again only applies to the brunch service on Sunday. The hospitality was very nice and the staff friendly. The dining area was neat, organized and a unique atmosphere. When we were seated and after getting our drink order the staff said the food was ready. It was served buffet style on very nice serving and warming trays. This was not expected as the breakfast is $50 a person not including drinks. This is the Dunlieth and I have to fix my own plate like at The Golden Corral. Even at Waffle House they bring you your food. Again this was our first visit and maybe I did not read the whole description about the brunch, we were just excited about going to the castle. Probably the biggest disappointment was the food. For $50 a plate the food needs to be better than the continental breakfast at a mid level hotel. I know this sounds harsh and again this is not a reflection of the rest of the Dunlieth or the restaurant during regular service. We knew going in the brunch was just an experience and over priced but the food is part of the experience and it was just horrible except for the fried chicken. I’m not trying to discourage anyone I am just giving an honest opinion of what you get for $50 a plate. The brunch service should be completely revamped or cancelled completely. We were not the only ones, we could hear other tables commenting on the food quality.

    Everything was superb! Of the eight items the three members of my party ordered all were outstanding. Our server Melinda was not only competent but also very helpful and congenial. I consider The Castle a first-class restaurant, and, as a Natchezian, I am proud of it. Cheers to the chef!

    Food and environment was good but they were out of a couple items on the menu which isn't a big deal but service was poor. The waiter was nice but in the almost 2 hours we were there only came to the table maybe 3 times. We never were asked if we needed refills on our drinks or offered dessert. We had to flag our waiter down after a while just to get our ticket so we could pay.

    The food was subpar and two of the items were not available - lobster and the chicken piccata. The salad we ordered was to have blue cheese, and it was missing and the waitress never asked. The salad came out with the meal which was a mistake. Overall, I would think the place is struggling because the experience was just okay. Oh, and my fish and shrimp were over cooked. It was like it was cooked earlier and then reheated. Save your money and go elsewhere.

    We ate lobster and truffle mashed potatoes, after consuming an enormous salad with sliced apples and Parmesan shavings. But the best dish of the evening was bread pudding topped with raspberries! We were celebrating both my birthday and the launch of my first novel on Amazon: a night I won’t soon forget.

    My husband and I went here for our anniversary this weekend. The staff were so friendly and accommodating. The hostess was very helpful and even offered to take our picture outside in front of the trees. They accidentally gave our food to another customer so we had to wait a little longer for it (not at all a big deal, we wouldn't even had known if they hadn't said anything), but they offered us drinks on the house. The setting is beautiful and relaxing. The bar tender down in the Pub area was fabulous. We will definitely go again.

    Outstanding! The food was amazing with a unique twist on every dish. The duck was just amazing and the lamb chops even better. The bread pudding was a different take and just perfect! The only thing better than the food was our waitperson Shirley. Lovely person who was so attentive and friendly! We loved the Castle!
