This is a little restaurant and bar set back off the main street. Easy to find. A weird menu. Steak , blackened grouper and scallops were OK, nothing special. Oysters on the half shell were good. Prices a little high. Atmosphere is nothing to great. The entrance is not very inviting but remember it is an island restaurant. Would call... More

My husband and I went after recommendations from hotel staff. He touted it as a local favorite. Although it was quaint and rustic, the food surely did not live up to the expectations. The menu was vast but the sushi was warm, the seafood pasta over cooked and bland and crab stuffed mahi entree not impressive. It was highly over... More

We went here after recommendation by our fishing captain. It was a hit. They did a great job with our fresh catch. I loved the ginger salad dressing. One of our party is Filipino and had traditional Filipino dishes which reminded him of home. We had 5 people and everyone enjoyed their dishes. Portions were large and we ended up... More

I had the hogfish with lobster sauce and steak fries.it came with steak fries and homemade honey buns. The hogfish I... More

Our food was amazing! We had the best waitress we have ever had. She knew the menu like the back of her hand. Her name was Stormy. Great place to eat.

Went to Castaway based on the other positive reviews. Regretfully we can not say we were wow'd by the food (ie. our King Crab Legs were overcooked, dry and flaky). However, the staff were very friendly. For the price for a family of five, I can't say we'd experiment with the menu, which is extensive, and give it a second... More

Love this place. We make a lunch/dinner stop every time we go through the keys. It's a little off the highway and always makes me feel like I've taken a wrong turn getting to it (through a "residential" area), but always worth it. I especially love the tuna sandwich and oysters flagler (allow some time for this-- they make them... More

Good waitstaff, and the food was superb, not overwhelmingly covered with sauce, just enough, imaginative dishes, quite delicious. Drinks served in glasses, not plastic cups.

We were so pleased with this find. Although it's off the path and the surrounding area is a bit different the restaurant and staff were great. We visited with our kids 10-17 and everyone enjoyed the experience. The restaurant is family owned and run. We had everything from steam shrimp to steak to sushi. My husband loved the hogfish. My...
