Decided to have a few drinks and listen to live entertainment. When we arrived, young hostage had no clue. She told us no room at bar or tables. We walked over to the bar and found four open seats. After ordering drinks we observed an open table. Went checked with her to see if it was okay to sit... read more

A local resident told us about this great little local restaurant. What a great find! We ate lunch here twice in one week while visiting the Key. Their Clam Chowder was fantastic along with their Happy Hour Peel and Eat Gulf Florida Pink Shrimp that are to die for. This is one of the best restaurants on Marathon Key.

Casual dining with decent food but nothing over the top. The menu was a bit pricey for what you get. My wife had the catch of the day, a 7 oz filet of mahi mahi with veggies for $24. I had the surf and tuff sushi roll, lobster tempura with prime rib for $16. I will give this place props... More

Great waterfront location with down home feel. Great selection of local fish and if you go fishing you can bring your own fish and they will prepare it for you. Nothing gourmet here but food was fresh and tasty. Outdoor bar appears to have live music nightly. The kids LOVED the honey buns. Stone crabs were great and reasonably priced.... More

We ate here twice in Marathon. Food was average but a little pricey. Catch of the day $28... Shrimp scampi (little shrimp) $19.99... Had better meals in Marathon but I'd go back for an appetizer and drinks.

What a wonderful meal we had at Castaways! Warm homemade rolls with honey to start with, and the freshest fish and sushi. The stuffed hogfish was wonderful! This is a hidden gem.

Had dinner here yesterday. And first off, let me state to people reading this, if you are heading to the Keys and expecting service that you would get in say, Miami, you've missed the mark. They Keys are very laid back (think Caribbean) and no one rushes for anything. You are on VACATION. Put your phones away, have an actual... More

We took our kids to Castaway's on a recommendation from a local. We waited for at least 20 minutes for our drinks to arrive after we ordered. Food was not that great ad also took a very long time to arrive. The scallops were overcooked and the "special," a crab-stuffed mani mani was overcooked and drowned out in a rich... More

This was recommended to us on vacation and we were disappointed. The road to the restaurant is shabby and homeless cats roam everywhere. Luckily we were in a group or the walk would've been a little creepy in the dark. We had reservations for outdoors and right before our reservation, that was cancelled. The reason was that it was under... More

We spent the afternoon fishing with SEAdog fishing adventures. After they cleaned and boned and divided the fish evenly among all passengers, we brought our catch to Castaway, where they prepared it and included sides. It was truly the most delicious fish dinner I have ever had! Go early, the place gets crowded and parking is dear!
