The food was good. The server was nice but did not come to our table often enough. Not enough servers and slow service. The mimosas, lobster roll and fish and chips were good. Beautiful location,

I booked the Lawn for my brother in laws birthday-the last time he was in Newport was thirty years ago and that was the last time he had eaten there. The food was terrific our waitress was great-Alexa-and the drinks were outstanding. And the weather was beautiful. After lunch we sat on the lawn chairs and had another drink-it was a perfect day!

Appreciate the effort to enhance the ambiance by limiting the number of guests as to not overcrowd the venue. The lobster roll was overpriced - meat was tasty but amount was not sufficient. Halibut special was excellent. Otherwise a very most enjoyable experience - food- service - atmosphere. Roses and lavender beautiful!

The View from The Lawn is stunning. Sunset was worth the very limited menu and mediocre food. The service was outstanding. We were not rushed but service was prompt. I think, like many restaurants post-COVID restrictions, this one is suffering through restart.

Delicious food, served in a beautiful setting, by prompt, courteous and friendly servers. And the drinks were delicious. Did not feel rushed at all, and we were able to enjoy after-lunch drinks on the lawn after we dined outside as well. A beautiful, special day.

It was nice. Menu was EXTREMELY limited for some reason. In addition seemed overpriced the quantity and quality of food. Didn’t make sense they they have oysters but, not shrimp for an appetizer. Main courses were also extremely limited. Overall was not as impressed this time as last year or the year before.

Another great meat at our favorite restaurant! My scallop appetizer was perfect as was my husband's clam chowder with a bit of bacon in it. We both opted for Caesar Salads with a protein added. I added the Lobster Salad and he added the Chili-spiced Grilled Shrimp. Both salads were great -- the lettuce was crisp with the perfect amount of dressing that didn't overwhelm the dish. Castle Hill really does have the best Lobster Salad on the island!!

We had a good experience. We were late related to the accident on route 24 and the staff was excellent handling our reservation for an hour late. I wish the menu had a little more to choose from but I understand all the covid complications for everyone. Our waiter, Luke was very good!!!

Fish and Chips fabulous and unique. Swordfish delicious. Small tables within clear glass areas overlooking the water were quiet, safe, and private. Very nice meal, good service, good value all around including valet parking.

Well I brought my girlfriend there and proposed by the lighthouse. She said Yes, so I guess it was pretty good. But nobody else can take my move now that I told you about it.

Just the most perfect spot in New England to have an outdoor lunch! The menu is limited but this means food comes out very quickly. Wine, beer and cocktails are excellent. Our server was just perfect, very helpful.
