Best Fish Tacos On Island!

Fun place with upstairs open air dining. Great food, and fun entertainment at night. They have karaoke at nights, which we came back and cheered on some people we meet on the Bad Kitty II tour we took earlier that day. Lot's of fun, an very lively at night!

We stopped in to Castaways for a drink one afternoon while in town. They have an outside terrace upstairs which is very nice. The painkillers were very good and only $2. We had hoped to try the fish tacos; however, our server advised us that their fisherman did not catch anything that day. We appreciated the honesty and that they... More
