Great brunch. Wait staff was accommodating for gluten allergies. Beautiful views of the ocean and nice Adirondack chairs to relax in after brunch.
There is no better place in Newport to enjoy an outdoor lunch than on the Lawn at The Castle Hill Inn. The view of Newport Harbor is spectacular, the food superb, and the service impeccable. This is a must visit whenever you are in Newport. Be sure to try the Blueberry Lemonade as well, it will become your favorite summertime cocktail.
Great mother daughter trip experience ! Would recommend for any type of get away.
It is expensive, but you get what you pay for! Outstanding experience.
Great lunch overlooking Newport and the entrance to Newport Harbor.
Incredible location - the view is spectacular from the lawn. Drinks, food, service, scenery - is all top notch. You cannot go wrong here, especially if the weather is nice.
Truly enjoyed our annual visit to Castle Hill. View never disappoints and food and service alwyas great.
We had a wonderful experience dining at Castle Hill! To the hostesses who greeted us, to the waitress who was friendly, gracious and funny, to the food which was delicious(!), to the entire place, KUDOS.... KUDOS..... KUDOS!!!!!
The most wonderful part of our being together, was breathing in the salt air and the sound of the waves as passing boats soared by!! This was not our first experience dining at Castle Hill, not will it be our last! Thank you for a trained, well-motivated, and friendly staff!!!! Have a pleasant day!!!!😀 My ONLY negative would be your facilities for handicapped adults (and children ) in getting onto the back porch....doesn't appear to be any ramps or anything easy for those in a wheelchair.
Isabel was a terrific server , the weather was perfect, the view outstanding and the food superb.
Second to none
Servers couldn’t be nicer!
Everything is always top notch when dining at Castle Hill.Food, service, view, all spectacular
Love this place, can’t beat the view.
The Best! This is really the nicest place in Rhode Island to enjoy the summer. Whether enjoying a wonderful meal on the patio or sipping drinks in a chair overlooking the harbor, this is the best.
Dear Matt (our server),
Our experience at Castle Hill will always be remembered, if you’re ever in Toronto give us a shout.

Love this place ! Megan our server was professional
The food was fantastic! I had chowder and a lobster roll. My husband had tuna tartar and shrimp po boy
We relished every bite! Let’s not forget the view!
now that’s really something else! Excellent place always!!
Elegant and beautiful. Dined outside on patio. Excellent food and outstanding service
The beautiful setting is what makes this restaurant so spectacular. Service was slow but we enjoyed the leisurely lunch. Food was really good, but portions were on the small side. Desserts are really good - don't skip them
Fabulous! Stunning views and friendly atmosphere. I recommend outside dining and cocktails on the lawn for Lunch.
Zach and Jackue(trainee) were very attentive to our needs as it was a windy day.
It was a chilly day. Loved the blanket to keep me warm while still being able to be outside and enjoy the beautiful view. As the fog rolled in, even the fog horn on the large ships going by was fun.
I will certainly come back with friends & family. This place is amazing.
The food and the view are outstanding.
I can't say enough about this experience. I try to go every year and have never been disappointed. The food is fabulous. We usually spend the entire afternoon. You can't beat the ambiance, view, and amazingly accommodating staff!
We were in Newport for a Wedding and made reservations fo 6 that grew into a group of 16. The staff was very gracious and accommodating. The whole group was very impressed with the ambiance, the weather contributed to it as well since we had a lovely sunny day. NO doubt I will recommend this restaurant many times.!
A perfect day! The service was impeccable yet warm and friendly! Thank you so much!
Beautiful views overlooking the bay and great service. Definitely worth a stop while you're in Newport!
I made reservations for 7 (4 adults and 3 children) for Father’s Day. We’ve spent this holiday at Castle Hill every year, and the food and service are typically top notch. Unfortunately, our last visit was a huge disappointment. The table was not set properly when we arrived (not enough waters, no booster seat available for my 2 year old, no umbrella over our table like everyone else had). We ordered a dozen oysters to start, and only received 11. We pre-ordered French fries for one of the children and after 30 minutes we had to ask for them again. I ordered a virgin pina colada that was barely blended and had huge chunks of ice in it. The 2 fathers in our group ordered the lobster roll which they both said was very good. The ladies ordered a Caesar salad with chicken/shrimp. The salad was lacking crunch and appeared to have been dressed too far in advance. To top it off, the waiter dropped a butter knife on my shoulder while clearing the table. He wasn’t very attentive or professional to begin with. Overall, the experience was a serious disappointment for the $300 (tip included) price tag.
Beautiful spot waterfront lawn.
Best dining views in Newport! Step back to the gilded age and dine on the lawn of this amazing mansion-turned sweeping sea-view inn!
This is a such a gem in Newport! We went for a bachelorette brunch and had an amazing time! We were seated right next to the water and enjoyed the live jazz music during our meal. The food and service were phenomenal. Very memorable experience!!
Wonderful staff. Beautiful views of course. Good food. Reasonable price considering all of the above.
Cannot ask for a better location for outdoor dining in the summer!
Best view ever. Great food and ambiance.
The venue is spectacular...it's why you go. The food is decent, not particularly generous, and overpriced which is to be expected given the setting. Nonetheless, it's worth the trip...and I do go quite regularly.
My only food comment is the $19 "Selected Cheeses" appetizer could use a 4th crostini (3 are provided). To the extent, a typical table of 4 might opt to share the appetizer (which is hard to do given the meager sampling provided) a 4th piece of toasted bread would allow for a 4th participant. At least he or she will have some bread for their trouble. As it is, servers would do their customers a favor by informing them that the item is meant for one, perhaps two...the menu description is easily misinterpreted to imply a more robust shared course.
It’s difficult to find a lovelier spot in Newport. The Inn is perched above the water and close to the enormous estates that have made Newport unique among US resorts. Lunch at the Lawn on a beautiful day is a real treat. The menu and the wine list are small but include a variety of seafood and meat dishes. There are also excellent choices for vegetarians. It was difficult to want to leave, but we made sure we sampled the ice cream ad brownie dessert first.
A must see location for the view! Pricey menu. Service seemed a bit aloof.
