We stumbled upon Castaways on our way to dinner at RhumbLines and decided it looked like a fun place to go and it was happy hour so why not. When we arrived on the second floor it was a fun little island bar with great service. $1 bud lights and $2 Coronas (others too but I don't remember). They have... More

Really enjoyed our few trips to Castaways on this trip. Great idea to love the happy hour to the upstairs bar!! Had fun watching football and playing trivia. Always a fun stop on island!

Arrived to the islands on a big college football game day and were not finding the game we wanted to watch at any of the other bars in the area. One of the waitresses from a different bar that did not carry the game recommended Castaways so we gave it a try. As soon as we walked into the upstairs... More

Downstairs part of Castaways is available for when the weather is not co-operating. We went to this tavern more than once during our stay at St John, USVI. Why, well, this tavern became a great place to partake in our favorite drink: Mango Painkiller. The nachos are great also. You can get the nachos with a hot sauce that will... More

Castaway's must be on your list of beach bars in Cruz Bay, USVI! It's a fun place to enjoy happy hour drinks and some Caribbean chicken nachos with their own white, alfredo sauce! Delicious! The portion is huge that 2 - 3 people can share it. The entire staff is terrific and will strive to make your visit to Castaway's... More

Great place to catch the game. Went to this bar because it was recommended by our concierge. Nice sports bar with Sunday ticket to catch all the games. Average drink prices for St. John. Didn't order food but some people we met while there did and said it was good. Will be going back next Sunday for the game again.... More

Great place to get a drink, right at the beach by the ferry docks. Small but perfect. Drinking age is 18 and you can walk around with you drinks, so we would grab one walk around, hit the beach and come back often to get another. .

The best place to catch Sunday football. Multiple screens on both levels with all games live. Very good food at decent prices and my favorite happy hour. Maybe too loud for some, but this old man fit in ok.

If you want an upscale fine dining establishment, don't come here. This is a terrific, inexpensive, bar/restaurant with $1 Happy Hour drinks. The downstairs is dark, warm, and crowded, which isn't my style. Upstairs is the open air bar and dining area where a lot of locals hang out and where you can get good advice about where to go...
