I am not sure. At the main gate I paid for admission to go and tour the castle. My son and his wife wanted to hike Mt. Roberts which is also on the grounds and I paid for them to tour the castle but they never got back from hiking earlier enough to tour the castle. I will call them to ask that question as I plan to hike Mt. Roberts someday too without touring the castle. I will respond when I get the answer.
Yes, you can go there just for lunch at the restaurant located at the old horse stables. Dining is out on the patio with a magnificent 100 mile view of the mountains and the Lake. You have to come up through the first entrance to the water bottling plant (The back entrance), this is free of charge.
