Castle Hill is renowned for its al fresco dining overlooking the waters of Narragansett Bay. We are accepting reservations for dining at our tables on the terrace, indoor tables, and outdoor bar seats. Outdoor tables and bar seats may be reserved online, while indoor reservations are available by phone call or email only. Our maximum party size allowed at this moment is 8 guests, and we are serving from 11:30am - 8:00pm daily. Guests are required to wear masks in order to be seated, during any staff interaction, and any time they are away from their table. Guests experiencing flu-like symptoms must cancel their reservation. We ask that you arrive not more than fifteen minutes prior to your reservation, as we do not have a waiting area or bar to enjoy beforehand. Regrettably, the Mansion Bar and Adirondack Chairs are currently closed.

Beautiful view looking back at the Newport bridge. Surf and turf was the winner of the evening. Our waitress was excellent. A little windy but hey that’s New England.

The Lawn was amazing. Panoramic water views to watch the sailboats go by while eating the best lobster rolls ever. After eating, you can take a drink to the Adirondack chairs to relax. It was like a dream!

Ordered the lobster meal. The meal was delicious but the lack of proper a proper fork (one provided too large and thick) and lobster cracker ruined the meal. It took far to long to eat. Brought this too the attention of the staff as well. I was told this is not the first compliant. The meal cost 60.00 and your a five star restaurant. Please upgrade.

Our special occasion summer place: spectacular views, outstanding service by Isabella, delicious summer berry salads (the grilled shrimp on my salad was so good), and relaxing on the Adirondack chairs on the lawn afterwards.

Our overall experience was enjoyable. The food was good although not notable, and the drinks seemed watered down/weak. Our primary complaint was that the server wasn't clear that once we moved to the actual lawn after our dinner, we would not be able to order any more drinks from the bar. That was disappointing and the reason we left earlier than we wanted. Further, the area on the lawn was full of dirty glasses and empty wine bottles left by previous guests which indicated the chairs were not being wiped down between patrons, which deterred us from even wanting to sit down. The best part was the view - couldn't be beat!

We absolutely loved our meal at Castle Hill! The Lobster Roll was incredible! Packed with fresh lobster and topped with crispy onions, it was devoured in minutes. The drinks were also delicious. The view here is amazing and well worth a visit.
