The worst experience we have ever had there. We were seated and our waitperson asked us why we were in her section after waiting for a server for 10 minutes to come to our table. She tried to tell us we needed to leave without eating. The food is always good but this experience was ruined due to the lack of service from her.
This is incredibly troubling to hear - can we connect directly so that I can understand what happened and make things right?
This was my first time dining and the food was phenomenal. We ordered an appetizer that never made it to the table unfortunately but our meals were very good. The fish tacos looked delicious and my salad was very good as well. It started to rain while we were eating lunch which was unexpected. Overall, food was better than the service. Our waiter seemed to cater to all his other tables rather than us.
Delicious meal and more filling than I even expected! The service was great and the view cannot be beat.
We went to the Lawn at Castle Hill to celebrate my husband’s birthday & we had a great time. The food was fantastic & the view with the sunset was amazing
Food is always superb, as is the service. The servers really strive to make a memorable experience. Consistent all summer long. Best spot in New England for a special lunch or dinner. The property is magical, that can’t be denied!
Amazing spot, everything was excellent!! Loved the view and food was delicious!
We sat on the lawn before our meal. The geese droppings were too much for me, but the service and food were great. Turns out our waitress grew up, not too far from our hometown. We will definitely come again.
Castle Hill is always a memorable dining experience. Thank you Ryan was doing a great job serving us !
Great view. Food good with the best focaccia bread ever. Peanut butter pie excellent. Prices steep. Service attentive but slow.
There is no better view than the view from Castlehill. We arrived early to have a cocktail on the lawn. We were then seated for an early dinner. We were disappointed that on Tuesday and Wednesday we only had access to the patio menu, not the full menu. We felt limited by the selection, but what we had was delicious. I highly recommend the street corn focaccia for an appetizer. I had a lobster roll, which was very good. My husband had fish and chips which were different but delicious.
A perfect meal for a perfect afternoon at Castle Hill. I had a shrimp cocktail - 6 huge shrimp with the perfect cocktail sauce and then a crisp caesar salad with huge amounts of lobster salad. My husband had a cup of the delicious Clam Chowder (bacon flavor and too thick) and the Farmhouse Burger. He loves the Mansion Gin & Tonic - a perfect refreshment on a sunny day.
A perfect location for celebrating a special birthday.
Food was excellent
No better setting in Newport!!
This place is fabulous. Perfect evening. Great service. Great food! Highly recommend!
Great views, valet parking. Beautiful restaurant @the Lawn at Castle Hill. Very lovely service. Chocolate and Banana dessert was delicious as well as the lobster roll
A wonderful experience, as always!
Another great experience at Castle Hill. I usually get seafood but decided to try a burger and it was xcellent. My wife had sides of lobster and shrimp and they were perfect as well.
Looking forward to another visit next month.
The food was excellent and our waiter Luke was outstanding. The outside patio with the view of the Newport Bridge and the sailboats were Amat.
Best location in Newport. While having lunch on the patio, you have a beautiful view of Jamestown and big and small boats coming and going into Newport. It is definitely a special place. The one drawback is the premium you pay for food and drinks.
Great food! Service was impeccable.
Our lunch at The Lawn was an exceptional experience all around. The food was local, unique, seasonally appropriate, and presented beautifully. The staff was attentive, friendly, and knowledgable about the menu and made excellent suggestions for those who were undecided. We were a party of 4 and each dish was thoroughly enjoyed. The servings are generous for lunch. For those not accustomed to New England summer oceanfront dining, here are some pointers - prepare for wind, sun, birds, an un-forecasted rain shower, and some more wind. If you want a more civilized dining experience as compared with the harbor front bars and touristy places, this is your restaurant.
The views are great as was the service. The food was excellent. Love everything about Castle Hill.
Castle Hill Inn is set on a beautiful cliff with a view of the Castle Hill Lighthouse. The service is attentive, but not overbearing. Food is fantastic. Cocktails could be improved. Tiki was the best, but the other drinks were a bit of a miss. Food was fantastic. We particularly enjoyed the oysters, fish tacos, and spaghetti. If it’s not too dark, it’s a short 5 min walk to the lighthouse. Would definitely come back.

Great view and great service!! We will be back soon.
Food and service were excellent! One of my favorite spots.
Our server, Siobhan, was great and we loved her sense of humor.
Definitely visit The Lawn at Castle Hill on your trip to Newport. The restaurant features tasty food with creative presentation, attentive service, and immaculate views. Whether going for a casual get-together or a fancy meal, The Lawn will not disappoint. Sitting in the Adirondack chairs to digest after the meal is a must.
Perfect! Beautiful views, excellent service- attentive but not obtrusive!
Vacation and anniversary week
Castle Hill is worth a visit, especially in the summer months when you can see spectacular sunsets. The food is always great.
It was great. Our server Luke was the best. He couldn’t be nicer or more efficient. Our food was great with a million dollar view.
We were late for our reservation but it was not an issue. That was great cause rhey were busy. A foffy day cleared over course of lunch and the bay was full of boats. The shrimp cocktail was wonderfu but the oysters qwre flat. Tocos and wggplant very tasty. Always a good visit to castle hill.
Spectacular food and view.
