No problems here. We're local and come here often. Good menu, good service, fair prices, nice old building.

As a 'local' I have about 5 favorite restaurants that I would refer folks to in the area from MDI and up along the coast to dine at…Barncastle makes that list. Having spend the day in Stonington touring around we read menus there only to look at each other and simultaneously agree "Let's drive to Barncastle"! This evening we had... More

Very casual, but a nice atmosphere. Great pizza, overall great food. Service can be a little slow sometimes, but is worth the wait 100%. Many locals (including my family and I) eat there and love it. Great place, highly recommend.

Arrived and were seated in a timely manner. Service was slow for drinks and even slower for dinner. Another customer beside me asked about his drink order 2 times before it arrived! I ordered the crabcake BLT that was a daily special. After waiting a long time for the daily special to arrive. It was a crabcake in a tortilla... More

The Barncastle had been recommended by our hostess so we didn't check them out in advance. We arrived early, prior to normal busyness, our waitress was pleasant, but slow and distracted. Service in general was very slow. The blt crab wrap was a major disappointment to my husband (one piece of bacon, a whole lot of lettuce, and seemingly less... More

We were glad we did not over look eating here. Stopped for dinner, were seated in a back room, thought we would be forgotten tucked in this corner. Waiter was attentive and friendly. Husband had the recommended vegetarian chili and I had shrimp on skewers. Salads and entrees were delicious, food was fresh and presentation was nice. Locals eat here... More

Charming laid back blue hill destination. Don't be put off by somewhat out dated decor that is forgotten with fabulous food, welcoming staff and relaxed kick back atmosphere. Great destination!

We stopped going here for a few years when our kids were small, as they (oddly) didn't accommodate small kids (no kids menu, no booster seats, etc).

The menu is solid, tasty and interesting. Service can be a bit slow, so plan accordingly. OK for kids, but if your kid gets antsy, maybe pick someplace else or order ahead and take it to go (that's usually what we do). My favorite is the Spanikopita and my husband loved the chicken burrito. Try the house creamy garlic dressing... More

Great pizza, especially the spelt crust option. Pasta dishes, seafood, salads and appetizers. Great bar, all be it very small. Love the Cosmopolitan. It gets busy quickly. This is not a last minute dinner option on a Friday or Saturday night as it will be packed. Kid friendly (coloring books and table games available), family dinning. Able to seat large... More
