Interesting but over priced.The site says$12.50 but when u get there it goes to$18.50 if you want to see the old cars but not worth it. They only deal in cash for everything which is wrong. Not very organized in the beginning but got better. Make sure you take enough cash. They have a ATM if you don't mine paying... More

Wonderful visit! Arrived at Solomon's Castle about 1pm on a Tuesday. There was an hour wait for the tour, which was great because we were hungry. We walked over to the Boat in the Moat restaurant. Beautiful outside seating. Inside is also available. We split the Lasagna plate hoping to leave room for the homemade desert but after lasagna we... More

With no CASH ONLY signs, or notification from our servers, our group only learned of the new No Credit Cards policy after waiting in a long line at checkout. Those embarrassed by not having enough cash had to get out of line, go to an ATM machine, pay a processing fee, and get back in line again. I have been... More

Just part of the Solomon's castle visit. It contains a very good restaurant. It is just amazing what one man can do if he sets his mind to do it. This is something else to see that shows the mind of this amazing man.

Eating here is a relaxing, peaceful experience. You have a choice of sitting in the boat, al fresco in a garden like setting, or in an additional dining room that gives you the feel of being in the middle of nowhere surrounded by nature. We chose the dining room. At first we sat outside, but the weather was iffy, and... More

Sandwiches. Wraps. Several hot entrees. Drinks. Eat inside the boat (looks like a back room in a bar), in a large pavillion, outside in the garden area. Kitchen clean. Orderly. Drinks in clean glasses. Sysco truck there - so resturant quality. Waitress pleasant and thankful that you came to the castle. Ok food. Grateful the are there.
