Live entertainment was jumping. But, I swear the nachos tasted like they just chopped up a hamburger and put it on top of some chips with salsa. It was not very good. Maybe next time it will be different. This place has a lot of live entertainment which was good. Sorry, but I can only give 2 stars.

We ate here twice in a 3 night trip to Ft Myers Beach. The pizza is great and cheap. One night was $2 taco night and I had one, but wished I had ordered more. I was already getting pizza. The taco was that good. It was the off season when we went and initially you might not think much... More

The food was WONDERFUL -- fresh, inventive and delicious, with the exception of the mussels in the seafood pesto pasta, which tasted... not clean would probably be a delicate way to put it. Service was friendly, but pretty slow.

Long time resident and my sister owns a place at the beach that she rents as well as comes down. This place was great. Pizza was yummy. Band Rocker on Friday night was awesome. I really liked the atmosphere and our server Deanna was great too.

The food is bar food but I had good fish here. They had a band the night we were there - they were pretty good so we stayed awhile longer than we planned!

Castaways was close to our condo so we gave it a try. Went for dinner and we liked all the choices on the menu and the specials offered. There were three in our party and we ate sandwiches and salads. Everything was very good and arrived in a timely fashion. Our service was very friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable about the...

Since Castaways has been taken over by new owners and new management, the place has absolutely become my favorite on Ft. Myers Beach!! The FOOD is fantastic (new menu) and the atmosphere is lighter and so much fun. Live entertainment keeps the crowd happy and dancing on the ample dance floor. Also the BEST bartenders in town! I highly recommend... More
