    Beautiful sunset over the water with bridges in the background. Steady parade of boats followed by a gorgeous moonrise. Drinks and food were good not great bit the view was spectacular.

    No true specials, no white fish, no scallops, very safe and boring. We have been going to Newport Restaurant Group restaurants for years, and they just don’t have the same magic. Going home we lamented we would have to change Castle Hill and Boathouse as our favorites.

    The service was very slow. While we were waiting for our meal one of the workers dropped a plate of something and splashed white sauce/ dressing all over my husband’s face, shirt and sandals. He did apologize and give us some wipes and a cloth but he never came back to pick up the mess. We had to wait for our waitress to come and get it. While we do understand accidents do happen they could’ve made good of it and we did tell our waitress Sydney that the worker never came back.

    We were very excited for our first time visit to The Lawn at Castle Hill. We had a reservation and were seated on the patio which had a beautiful view. It took forever to get drinks and food as our server was not well attentive to us and others were getting food faster even though we ordered a salad and a burger. My husband’s burger was not cooked as he wanted and my chicken on the salad was dry. For the price, we were very disappointed with this experience, but it is a beautiful spot.

    This place is definitely worth the money for a special occasion. Crab fritters were delicious. The lobster roll was very fresh and tasty. Drinks were strong, definitely try the espresso martini (not on the menu) it was very very good. It is a bit pricier but the views are amazing and the food was delicious.

    We were a party of two at 3;30pm on a Thursday in the summer. We were hoping to have a table where we could both enjoy the view of the lawn / water however the hostess was not able to seat us at a table like that because any tables available were for 5 people. It’s not the hostess’ fault as she was probably just following guidance from management so this isn’t about their service.

    Lots of management walking around but we were seated for 55 minutes and our server didn’t take our dinner order and no one seemed to notice (we did have drinks and an app). Tried to get manager’s attention but eventually had to ask hostess to tell our server to just bring us our bill bc a storm was coming.
