Great food. Excellent happy hour. A definite stop when you are on St John. The macho nachos are excellent. Served 8 of us. Great friendly staff. Make sure you sit at the upper deck, there is a Great breeze.

I tried this place on a recommendation and the food was great and a good value. Ate here twice in a week and couldn't get service another time. Pretty dark inside so bring a flashlight for reading the menu and bring your own eating utensils. They only have cheap plastic forks which make trying to eat the tasty Chimichangas a... More

My husband and I hang out at Castaway's everytime we visit St John. We love the food, the bartenders and karyoke night can be very entertaining! This year we brought our kids and they loved it too! They wanted to go back for the quesadillas, nachos and fish tacos several times! Can't wait till next time!!

While waiting for a table at Rhumb Line we stopped in at Castaway's for a drink. The service was excellent - friendly. It was a quite night with a handful of millennials at the bar. This is the kind of spot that looks like fun but it's a tavern and to be fair not my thing anymore. The weirdest encounter... More

Toured a number of spots for happy hour and ended up coming back to Castaway's several times during our week. Great bartenders and best deals: Painkillers - $2 Well Drinks - $1 Also recommend - fish tacos are excellent and filling! Also! - they have BINGO on Sundays during which you can win free shots and plenty of cash

My wife and I stopped into this bar/grill following a recommendation by another tourist. It is a 2nd level open air bar/grill and does not have a direct view of the bay. However, it makes up for that in their fish tacos. The fish is fresh caught mahi mahi and if you don't think freshness matters, wait till you try... More
