Fun at Castaway's

We had so much fun at Castaway's! We only ordered drinks, but the atmosphere was fun and the locals were all so nice.

No longer Castaways even though the name on the outside hasn't been changed. Went because we wanted some good Mexican food on the upper floor... upper floor was closed for remodel... so sad... Downstairs is dark and not a place for kids which we had with us.

Came in Sunday afternoon for beers and to watch football. For us St John is all about the beach, but when feel the need for a large screen TV and a friendly crowd - this is the place!

We went off a recommendation from the hotel but found the food to be very greasy. We didn't finish our burgers and would not go back.

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!
