Spectacular views and lively scene make The Castle Inn a must do and see experience for one and all! A gem on the eastern shore!
Beautiful view. Wonderful staff. Incredible food. Best calamari I’ve ever had.
The Lawn is outstanding! Beautiful view of water from inside the dining room. Sunday Jazz Brunch is great—choice of brunch or lunch menu. Service and food outstanding! Fried Green Tomato Benedict is outstanding!
Must do in Newport!!!
The food was excellent, as always. We were a little disappointed that the great music selection we heard a month ago was not playing. The 1920-30s jazz really added an extra element to the overall atmosphere.
This was absolutely amazing. A slice of heaven on earth. Highly recommend.
Haven’t been to Castle Hill for years, so yesterday’s visit was a real treat. It met all our expectations. The day couldn’t have been more beautiful and our table was in just the right spot to enjoy the spectacular view. The service and food were great. We look forward to a return visit before long.
Perfect in every way. Will definitely return. xxxxxxxx
Awesome location, food and service! Everything was fresh and perfect temperature when served. Our server was friendly and helpful. Very relaxing lunch!
Have been to Castle Hill on several occasions and always an amazing experience. Lunch on the Lawn is fantastic, the view breathtaking. Solid lunch menu, service is always top notch. To top it all off, manager Carlos remembered my name and all of my family, and it had been several months since our last visit. Castle Hill is the place to go to in Newport in the summer for outdoor dining.
Spectacular views; great service & food! Reservation a must; seated without delay.
I love celebrating special occasions here or just stopping by for a cocktail on the lawn. Perfect place to enjoy sunset as well, as the outdoor lawn is scattered with Adirondack chairs and overlooks Sakonnet Bay and the Newport Bridge. Perfect on Sundays if you have kids - there’s a jazz band and plenty of room for the kids to run around on the lawn. My #1 favorite place to enjoy outstanding food, good company, and good drinks in Newport!
This is a very special place. A definite must for a summer day. The lawn is elegant but casual. It wouldn’t be a summer in Rhode Island without lunch at Castle Hill.
View is spectacular..Food and drinks are very good. Cudnt ask for better location for special occasion. All the people including other guests were super nice. Wouldn't be that good on a bad weather day.
Spectacular all around! Food, weather, service and ambiance couldn’t have been better! Can’t wait to go back again! Rachel our server was amazing!!! She made sure everything was perfect!
Awesome views, good food, the service was not great.
Happy that the menu has changed and new additions like Pat LaFreida burgers and Blackbird Farm hotdogs have been added. These new additions reflect the changing cuisine scene with the innovative of simple American standard fare. We were super psyched! Also the larger portion Bloody Mary in what seems like a new ‘mix’ in the new glassware was another hit. Keep up the evolution of welcomed changes!!! We locals love it and I’m sure your out of town guest do as well! Kudos!
In every way outstanding. From the views to the food to the service. Absolutely one of our favorite places.
The view is what you're paying for and it is truly breathtaking. Booked a brunch reservation... but it's bit really brunch... it's lunch with an very small insert that offered 1 dish with eggs and 3 other non breakfast food items. We had gazpacho, chowder, lobster eggs Benedict and cod. To drink, 1 glass of Prosecco each and a bottle of water....$170.00. Again the view is beautiful.... staff were very kind and attentive... but the brunch just isn't a brunch and the price was high.
My husband and I visited Castle Hill Inn twice out of 3 days stay in Newport. Great service, meal and views. Absolutely one of our favorite spots to connect and enjoy the surroundings in RI.
It was raining so we ate inside, but that didn’t matter - Fantastic service, delicious meal and a beautiful view made for a lovely lunch on a Saturday afternoon.
One of the top 5 chill days. Enjoy lunch and then have a drink or 5 on the lawn overlooking Rhode Island Sound
What a view! Service is outstanding as is the food!
Always such a wonderful experience and the most beautiful ocean views!!
Beautiful restaurant in an incredible location. Prices are on the high end but the food seemed worth it at the time! Service was on the slow end but their friendliness made up for any shortcomings. Highly recommended for the view and location.
We enjoyed The Lawn so much for a friends celebration. Our lobster rolls were amazingly delicious! Great service too. Oh we had blueberry lemonade that was awesome, as well as birthday cake dessert. Memorable day we loved!
I celebrated a birthday there! The view was incredible!!! the service was impeccable.
Thought food prices were a little high but you are paying for the magnificent view! Worth the trip from Mass!
Great food and service. The views are amazing. Cannot wait to return. Our cocktail server Annie was great!
Went for Jazz weekend...Sunday brunch was the highlight of weekend!!
Expected live music but none...
The view food and service spectacular!!
Food was great - Bartenders outstanding - Hosts and checking in marginal - a little bit of condescension and after we decided to dine in the bar area I was courteous and went back to host stand to notify them. They proceeded to cancel my Open Table reservation.
Minor issue but the difference between a 4 and 5 star rating.
Quintessential upper crust New England - the view, the setting, the food, the service. I love a good dockside or roadside lobster or clam shack, but occasionally it’s nice to treat yourself a little fancy.
Wonderful dining experience. The swordfish was simply grilled and delicious. Excellent service and view.
We make an annual drive to Castle Hill. The drive through the residential area of Newport is as much a part of the experience as the wonderful food and view at Castle Hill.
I've been here many times over the years. Right now, the place is at its best - not that it was ever weak! There are few places on the East Coast that command the view and ambience of this former manor of Louis Agassiz the phenomenal biologist/naturalist of the 19th Century. Certainly had an eye for the magnificent! Service was impeccable, the calamari and green gazpacho were best I've ever had.
Can’t beat the view, anywhere!
We went for Sunday brunch on the lawn. The terrace sitting and ocean view with the sailboats passing by are unbeatable. The menu has all the regular brunch staples (avocado toast, oatmeal, eggs etc), plus an a la carte selection. Some good seafood options like the lobster hash, oysters and various platters. The highlight for us was the daily special warm pecan roll, which was fantastic. The service was friendly and relaxed. Ambiance is generally relaxed and low-key. Lounge chairs are available to chill after the meal, with drinks and small snacks served.
Fantastic ambiance especially in a sunny day
Great for brunch, lunch and a drink
Breathtaking views!! Delicious food and great service! Best lobster roll and homemade chips!! Must have drinks on the lawn chairs after your meal and watch the sailboats go by!!
Simply amazing. Experience it, don’t simply read about it.
Best outdoor dining spot in New England with a beautiful ocean view. We began with cocktails on the lawn. My Sangria was very tart, but the special Blueberrry/Lemon cocktail was tasty. The Adirondak chairs are very relaxing. Terrace dining was outstanding. Three of us had the Lobster Roll. Two of our younger crowd had grilled chicken sandwiches. My son had Filet Mignon that he was able to cut with a butter knife. Everyone loved the food and the great service. The ambiance is the best there.
