Great food, terrible service

Went for lunch, I had the turkey club, friends had chilli - all great food. When we initially were seated we had to wait almost 5 min. for someone to come around for drinks, then drinks were gone, the food took a little longer than usual, we waited another 10 min or so, asked to see our waitress... read more

On a busy fat Tuesday night we decided to try Castaways, I was needing my fried seafood fix. So I ordered the captains platter with snapper, shrimp and oysters. I also got a Caesar salad and white rice on the side. The sweet honey buns came first, mmmm. Then my Caesar salad which was enough for 2 (or 3), I... More

We love Castaways and have been coming for years. That said, service is in the dumps! We always eat at the bar. We ate this week in early evening and were largely ignored, as was everyone else on our side of the bar. The female bartender disappeared for lengths at a time and only took care of a table of...

So while Castaway has a HUGE menu, they specialize in LIONFISH preparations... The Lionfish is taking over our environment, so, Mr. John Mirabella and staff are doing their level best to even the odds!!! I highly recommend The Lionfish Uzuzukurri. They also have land food if you desire. They also have ridiculous amount of beer on tap and full bar.

This has to be the worse service that we ever had. I had to get our own drinks plus our own condiments. Then had to get our check. Don't waist your time. Now I can say my Mia Mia was good. Wife burger was over cooked and dry.

My family ate here on a rainy night because they had indoor seating and good reviews on Trip Advisor. What a mistake! First, the bathrooms were a disaster. The men's room toilet was unusable, there was standing water, and the roof was leaking. The women's was also flooded due to the rain. Second, the service was terrible. Our waitress got... More

Have been 2 this place twice now. It appears to be a fixture for seafood in the area. We tried the sushi this time and I ordered a steak. It was the best steak I think I've ever had including Peter Luger's and Morton's.

Nice locals restaurant and bar area with TV's. Nice menu selection along with good sushi selection. The food was prepared well and the wait staff was friendly. The neighborhood is a little rundown getting to the place but, it was a pleasant surprise once we arrived. A local recommendation and worth a try.

Went for lunch. This restaurant is in the back of a mobile park neighborhood. No problem parking for lunch, but I don't think I would go for dinner because of the parking situation- signs everywhere - not to park here, and not the best neighborhood. We sat outside alongside a canal. The weather was perfect, so that makes for a... More
