You will have a nice view and great service. The food was also excellent. One of surprising menu was ramen. I was not sure about this particular menu, yet tried. It was very good, exceeding my expectation. I also tasted my family's dish and they were all great! Highly recommend without any reservation.

Eat here. Seriously. We dined here as part of my 40th birthday celebration. As we walked into the dining room we were warmly greeted by the dining manager and staff and shown to a table along the windows set for two. We both chose to order the four course menu. Our first courses were a beet carpaccio and polenta with... More

We were in Newport for the weekend and we were really looking forward to dinner and it had some hits and some misses. FIrst of all, we had a wonderful warm welcoming from the staff. Once we were seated, we were concerned that the tables were too close together but it was not an issue. The steak tartar my husband... More

Thank you so much for dining with us and for sharing the feedback. I'm glad to hear that overall you enjoyed the meal, but am sorry to hear that the main course was not up to par. Furthermore, we should have picked up on that during your experience rather than after the fact. I hope that you'll give us another... More

Normally I am not a huge fan of "Dining." For me, a good steak or Prime Rib and a baked potato usually suffices. But we decided to the the Dining Room at Castle Hill Inn. First off it is a fixed price 3 or 5 course meal. They will substitute a bit for food allergies, but not much deviation. But... More

Delicious food for a New Years Eve lunch. I got the lobster roll and hubby got a burger. Both delish. Be sure to ask for the main dining room so you can get the best view--surrounded by water. Service was good. Reservations are important. This was our 2nd time here. Back in 2012, we had come for lunch in late... More

We got Lobster rolls and the lobster meat... More

The Castle Hill bar offers food and drinks inside and on the lawn. The area tends to fill with locals and tourists on weekends creating a loud but friendly scene.

My wife and I went here for a pre-Christmas dinner on the day before Christmas eve. It was an absolutely outstanding dining experience. Although it is a bit pricey, the service is remarkable and the food is absolutely delicious. The atmosphere is second to none. We definitely will be back!
