Reviewed 4 October 2013

This was a really neat restaurant. We loved the atmosphere and the food was delicious! We would definitely eat here again the next time we are visiting the area.

“Terrible service - stay away in August!”
Reviewed 7 August 2013

The Barncastle does not take reservations for parties smaller than 6 people, so if you're a small family you're out of luck. Knowing we might have to wait for a table, our family of 3 arrived last night at 7pm for dinner. We were told to expect a 20-25 minute wait, which was fine with us. We were finally seated around 7:50. Friends of ours, a family of 4, arrived around the same time and were seated just before us. WE WERE NOT SERVED DINNER UNTIL AFTER 9 PM - our friends suffered the same fate and were finally served their 3 salads and 1 pizza. Our friends asked for a discount due to the lousy service - the request was declined. The food was not up to their usual quality. I don't know how any restaurant gets away with this and stays in business. Stay away from this place during the summer tourist season - we won't be back.

“This is the best!”
Reviewed 13 July 2013

This place is great. It was our first time for dinner in Blue Hill and we are just amazed. My husband had the bianco sausage lasagna which was fabulous. Scallops appetizer was great, and the service was friendly and efficient. The best part, though, was the dessert. We split the strawberry-rhubarb-apple piecrisp with ice cream. The portion was ample, not decadent, and the ice cream just made heaven a little sweeter. Even the coffee was great. It's casual, but in a wonderful historic setting.

“Look no further for dinner on the Blue Hill peninsula.”
Reviewed 9 July 2013 via mobile

Thanks to Trip Advisor reviews, we chose Barncastle for a casual dinner and had a great time. Located just outside of town, it's a lovely setting with small rooms that give a cosy feel. We shared a delicious, fresh salad with apple and blue cheese then each had a really good thin crust pizza. The very nice evening was enhanced by great live music. We'll be back.

“Love the pizza!!”
Reviewed 27 June 2013

We get takeout pizza here as often as we dine in. The pizza is great, but there are other nice offerings as well. Very popular, so there is often a wait on weekend evenings. The restaurant is in an old house, so there are several rooms to choose from, including an enclosed porch. Good for an intimate dinner as well as a larger group (including kids).
