We’ve received rave reviews for everything from our grilled cheese to our lobster roll! Our dinner menu highlights some of the luncheon favorites, along with a few heartier options for guests to enjoy while listening to music on the terrace.

Restaurant 2015

Dinner on the Terrace September 2015

Outdoor seating on our terrace offers views of Lake Winnipesaukee and the surrounding mountains. There are few other restaurants in the Lakes Region that offer the views comparable to those you’ll find from our Terrace. And if the weather isn’t ideal for outdoor seating, rest assured – we have tables inside as well! The interior of the building has remained relatively untouched and guests can dine indoors, in what were once the original horse stalls. Click here for a virtual tour of our indoor and outdoor dining areas.

*This lunch menu is a sample only. Items on the menu provided upon arrival may differ.

During our busy season (August & Fall Foliage) we can have a wait-list of up to an hour. We do not take reservations for lunch, so we highly suggest arriving early, especially if you have a large party.

Visitors Joining Us for Lunch Only

Looking for a nice place to enjoy lunch but don’t have time to tour the mansion? If you are coming for LUNCH ONLY and do not want to see the mansion, you can visit via Ossipee Park Road (the entrance to CG Roxane Bottling Plant) free of charge. All entry via the Main Gate will need to pay admission. Feel free to call our main offices at 603-476-5900 for directions or use 455 Ossipee Park Road for GPS.

Member Perks

One special perk for Friends of the Castle: you can visit with all your guests for lunch and access the Scenic Road via the Main Gate free of charge! As long as there is one Friend of the Castle in the car, admission to the Scenic Road is waived for each individual. Bring your guests to the Falls of Song for a scenic trip before you dine at our restaurant! This is a great option for locals who like to visit for lunch and enjoy the scenic trip.
