Nice views

The best thing here is the view. Good food and friendly staff, especially bartender Scott. Usually quiet so you can enjoy your dinner and actually have a conversation with your companions.

We went to Castaway for our 11th Anniversary on the 4th of July 2015. We like to go there every couple of years because it is where we got married. There have been a few updates over the last decade, but it is basically the same. The view can't be beat and there were fireworks for 2+ hours going on... More

Located on a bluff overlooking the IE, this old school sprawling restaurant and banquet facility provided a pleasant, but not superb, dinner experience. The main dining room has one row of booths adjacent to the windows, and then regular tables in the rooms. While our reservation request for a window booth could not be honoured we were fine with the... More

Whenever we visit family in California, we have Sunday Brunch at Castaway's. They have a huge buffet selection, with an omelet and pasta bar where food is made with the ingredients you request. You can eat either inside or out, you can also choose from a variety of beverages such as champagne, juice, or coffee whatever you prefer, the wait... More

Im sure if you're planning an event here, or coming here for a drink and to enjoy the view it'd be fantastic. Unfortunately we were here for dinner, and while we were seated promptly, after that we were more or less left alone. A small army of staff set tables, tidied, replenished the bar and chatted nearby, but no one... More

Great location. Great food, although, I would've liked a couple more options to choose from for a main-course, as well as dessert.

We visited there twice in 2 weeks. Hostess station is lacking, both times we had to find someone. Neither time were our tables set although we had reservations both times. Once was on a sunday for 7 and the second was the day before Mother's Day for 3. We waited 15 minutes for a table to be set. Both times... More

Arrived a bit early before supper time and was accommodated to the cocktail area. Andrew was the man in charge..we commanded and he charged! I had a delicacy called the 'Burning Mandarin' with a crushed serrano pepper! Really? On the top of my party list beverages! I don't even want to mention the coconut shrimp because I will have to...
