Kudos to Castle Hill Management and Staff for providing their usual outstanding service and delicious food while keeping everyone safe by observing COVID rules (wearing masks, etc.) Lobster roll was filled with large pieces of lobster. Oysters were divine. Orange Blood bellini added to the fun as we watched the sailboats and lobster boats on the water.

Wonderful meal and atmosphere once again. My husband loves the Farmhouse Burger and it was great once again. I had a Caesar Salad with grilled shrimp and it was perfect. Nick was our waiter and he was thoughtful although very busy with the early evening rush. We were outside where the restaurant leaves plenty of space between tables.

I have been here many times and yes they took out a lot of tables. But, my table was only 2 feet from the table next to us. I didn't say anything but kept my mask on more.

On a sunny calm day, the location dining on the terrace cannot be beat. We had a perfect late afternoon/ early evening meal at Castle Hill. The service was amazing and the food absolutely delicious. The prices are high, especially on some items ($24 salad?), but it was well worth it for a special outing.

Sadly the staff, who does so much to make each visit perfect, has no control over the weather which was less than ideal. But don't worry, much was excellent and we will be back!

Just amazing!! Third time here and never disappoints or fails to wow. Food, drinks, service, views— everything was perfect. Ben our server was friendly, funny and super professional. And finally my vote is in for the lobster roll with a couple of Prosecco.

Visiting Castle Hill is always a pleasure, but especially so after being cooped up so long for COVID-19.
The restaurant has done an amazing job with social distancing at the tables. We also appreciated being served by Nick, he was so attentive, and kind.
Thanks again for a wonderful experience!

Gorgeous view and amazing food. We went for lunch for our anniversary and it was very memorable. Ordered the lobster roll which one of the best I’ve had in R.I. The fish tacos are also recommended. Terrific place for special occasions.

The place is beautiful especially out on the lawn/patio. The service was excellent and the food was well prepared and delicious. It is on the pricier side but well worth it. We had a lovely time!

You can't beat the views on the lawn/patio at Castle Hill! We arrived early for our reservation and they were very helpful getting us in. The tables were placed approx. 10 feet apart, making us feel comfortable with the social distance. All the diners were respectful and wore masks walking to and from their tables. It took quite a while to get our first cocktails, but other than that the service was good. My lobster roll was delicious and not over-dressed. My husband's burger was cook the way he liked it. Only negative on the food was that the burger bun was too big for the burger leaving about a half inch of bun sticking out all the way around the burger. We love watching the boats come and go. It's so beautiful there.

Always a treat to have lunch on the terrace at Castle Hill, overlooking Narragansett Bay. The staff were all incredibly attentive and professional. They seated us promptly "center court" on the terrace ... with a million-dollar view. Our waitress was very polite, and she was knowledgeable in response to a few questions about menu items. We had two appetizers and double lobster rolls. The food arrived quickly, and was delicious. HUGE portions! When I commented to the waitress how much I enjoyed the friend onion rings that topped the lobster rolls, she quietly ducked away, and brought me an extra portion! We had no room for desert, but did enjoy a cup of tea, watching the boats sail by. Afterwards, we walked around the grounds, including a little trek down to the lighthouse. Overall, an absolute treat. We would definitely recommend lunch at Castle Hill!
