This place was fun for the whole family. The food was so good. We had the stuffed mahi and prime rib which were great. Even my sons fish sticks tasted wonderful. Would've gone again if we didn't have to leave the next day.

We had a wonderful lunch at Castway. The honeybuns (greaseless little doughnuts served with honey) alone would make it more than worth the trip, but the rest of our meal was also delicious. We tried the conch fritters, steamed shrimp basket, and grilled fish sandwich with avocado. The coleslaw was tasty and the fries were nice and crispy. Service was... More

We sat on the outside patio which was nice, but I didn't appreciate hearing the female bartender saying "What the f***" loudly over and over. She was brunette with tattoos. We also waited a while for our server. Food was great they just need to work on some staffing issues.

Wow, this place was a great find. We had the Latin roll, fried alligator, seafood enchiladas, and of course the stone crabs. Each dish really held up to its own. Our server, Sam, was super attentive and great at recommending certain dishes.

Great nightly entertainment, outside as well as Inside dining. Get a little tipsy and staying nearby, they give you a ride on the golf cart to the main road. Food is excellent and hospitality is even better

My husband and I stopped in for dinner on the way back to Miami. The food was awesome! Ordered clam chowder, crab cakes, oysters and a few other dishes that we can't remember. ;( We sat out doors and listened to the band. Made fast friends with another couple. Our waitress was awesome! Very sweet! A must go!

I didn't like it. The reviews were fair, but I decided to try it anyway. The person I was with got fish and it was OK (not great). But my sushi was miserable. It was mostly rice - a LOT of rice. Just a little bit of mushy tuna. Not good.

We were a bit worried driving in, as it looks a little rough, but we went in anyways. The service was great, the food was great, the location was great!

I really enjoyed our stop at Castaway. At first when we were driving up I was worried because the street and back of the place look a little crappy, but it was awesome! We sat at the bar outside in the back and the service was great. I loved the Key Lime Martini and thought it was really cool that... More

loved the sushi and dessert. We just stopped in for a snack going down the keys and were pleasantly surprised by how great the sushi was! The location is very "local" especially the bar area but service was very nice.
