Get the Nachos

Very casual bar with a comfortable bar with food service. The upstairs deck is nice and quiet compared to the downstairs bar (there's a DJ downstairs many nights).

Went to Castaways on three different nights while in St. John. The first trip was with my son (21yrs) and a friend (19 yrs). We went here after dinner, and were looking for drinks. The drinks are very good and priced just right. It was a Wednesday night, so Karaoke night. After a few more drinks I was up on... More

Good local spot for traditional car type food. Try the nachos made with tater tots! Our group of 6 headed to Castaways after our coat captain recommended the spot. Good bar selection and good menu. Bar food but good bar food!

The best conch fritters on St John can be found here. They actually have conch unlike longboards which had no conch only bread. The Mahican fish tacos were also delicious. The margaritas were very good

We have been to Castaway's for three years in a row and it's always one of our favorites. The nachos are huge and great to share and the bartenders are always fun. They have great happy hour specials and plenty of TVs (we watched the Blackhawks conference final game!) Relaxed patrons, good drinks, and a fun atmosphere. Downstairs has always... More

We went for lunch and had a great meal. The portions were so large we couldn't eat it all. We sat at the bar overlooking the bay and enjoyed both the view and the great service. They seem to get a lot of traffic from people grabbing a drink while waiting for the ferry and like New Orleans you can... More

a great place for happy hour drinks. I had the conch fritters and they were really quite tasty! Downstairs is fun with karaoke, I'm sure when they make their changes with new ownership, it will be an even better place!
