    As locals we look forward to a few visits a year for special occasions. This visit did not leave us looking forward to our next visit. The food which has always been flavorful was subpar and bland. The biscuits, a past favorite, were not good. Many favorites have been removed from the menu and those that remain were disappointing. The service was great and the castle is still a local, must see, treasure. Hopefully the food can be brought back to the high standards of the past.

    The ambiance was upscale but the price of the food was not worth the taste. Overall, we were very disappointed.

    We had a wonderful lunch at The Castle. It was my husband’s birthday and he was given a complimentary cake. This was an unexpected delicious surprise. The service was fantastic. We plan on returning.

    The Castle was breathtaking and the staff exceptional. We met the Kitchen Manager and she was wonderful. However our dinner did not match the ambiance of the castle nor the prices. The food was average. I was served a very small piece of friend chicken. It was so bland and so small. Very small. The appetizers of fried green tomatoes were slightly over cooked and bland. The bread was good and the cucumber salad was good. My husband had the steak and said the seasoning was very good and the bourbon butter was good but felt the $80 price was high.

    We went to the Castle for our wedding anniversary. At the price point, we expected something totally different than what it was. The grounds are nice and it’s clean, plus most of the staff was very friendly. The cocktail bar/area was very underwhelming and lacking character, but the bartender was great. As we grabbed our drinks to walk around it was strange to see packages sitting in the lobby area, including one for a Vizio TV. There wasn’t necessarily a whole lot to see. When it came time for dinner, the setting was totally not romantic or unique. It was a well lit room that was noisy. We were seated in a room with multiple tables with young children running around. It was not necessarily the kids, but it was very difficult to hear. We thought the cocktails were reasonable priced and ordered 2 apps, both very underwhelming so much so that we decided to forgo ordering mains and ask for our check. The one app, burnt ends, looked like they came out of a jar and had drizzled sweet bbq sauce on them. Looking back, as a local, it feels a bit like a tourist trap that is deceptively priced at a level you think would be fancy and intimate, but absolutely not.

    Went for Father's day dinner with husband, daughter and son in law! Quite a number of kids which made the noise level go up. Ordered three tomahawk pot chops which they said were very good. I ordered the fried chicken. Wasn't that impressive. Chef needed to dab off the grease. Mashed potatoes and corn were very good. Also think the person who greets needed to be in a more impressive outfit.... black dress... for this elegant a place. .

    Food was fresh but taste was average. Bloody Mary was bland. Portion size was decent. Was charged 20 percent large party fee even though we were a table of four and had separate reservation from other friends. Grounds are very pretty.

    The waitress was polite and professional but seemed inexperienced in that items that should have been part of the service were excluded.

    Excellent service. Food was delicious and they were attentive and accommodating to our daughter’s food allergies. Several vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free options available. Specialty drinks were fantastic!
