Great bar!!

This place was awesome. Fun bar with a great happy hour. Everyone there was friendly and having a good time. We went back to get more of the tacos and conch fritters. Amazing.

My son has a donut addiction. We got 4 cheese burgers that have a glaze donut as a roll. really good burger at outstanding price. Even got 2 bucks off each burger due to happy hour. Looks like a cool place to hang out.

Great Bartender (The bartender we had first week of June 2015 was a dead ringer for Kid Rock. Looked just like em, and super nice. Best prices in town, and a whole lot of fun from 3 -6 PM each day.

In Castaway's defense, we were beyond starving when we arrived and that probably colored our experience. It came highly recommended from one of our tour guides so we were really looking forward to some good food. Unfortunately, our visit started off on a not so high note. We were told to sit wherever and then ignored for about 15 minutes... More

We happened on to Castaway's in search of Duffy's that was on St John when we were visiting the island 10 years ago. Same bar, different name! Excellent prices, service, and food! Great place to hang--you won't be disappointed!

We ordered crab cake sliders as an app, and fish tacos and the chicken sandwich as our meals. The service was solid, the food was good, but not amazing.(In terms of the food, we ate at a lot of places and really I didn't find many stand outs. Everything is about the same.) The best part of Castaways was the... More

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). They have reasonable prices and I'll never forget the nachos we ordered for the table. They were LOADED with everything you'd expect from a good order of nachos.

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
