I love any spot to eat that is on the water. We ate inside,it was a great atmosphere but I would love to sit outside next time. My parents and husband and I stopped here after we visited The Turtle Hospital. We had dinner and it was soooo good. My mom had ribs, my dad had Hog and said it... More

If you want seafood, try Castaways. The food is good, the prices are reasonable. It's definitely a nice evening spot. The service is friendly and accommodating.

This place is very keys-ey and has an awesome atmosphere. The sweet hostess sat us in a great outdoor table where our server Christina helped us with our excellent dinning experience. Food was top notch and would recommend the place to any marathon visitors!

Sushi lovers make sure you find this seafood treasure trove in back of a trailer park. We thoroughly enjoyed our sushi apps and delicious dinners. Our waitress was so knowledgable about all the menu items and was totally attentive to our table, even though she was taking care of many other tables. Fun Key's atmosphere. Had the hogfish dinners, try... More

Love the sushi bar here, mmm mmm. lion fish are always on the menu. If their is a hole in your fish filet, that's just because the owner John speared it. 33 beers on tap and a Keys atmosphere. It's hard to find. Go through the trailer park, through the trap yard and hang a right. A guy on a... More

Took the family here for dinner. Had the crab claws. Umm good. Also had one of their special smoothies. Umm good also. We sat out on the patio and it had a real local feel. It was nice and busy but we got right in. The parking was all over the place. We were lucky to get a spot up... More

We enjoyed watching a Keys version of "Cheers" as the locals greeted each new set of patrons. Great warm, unpretentious atmosphere with attentive friendly service. Awesome selection of beers on tap, and the flight of five 7-oz brews for $10 was a steal compared to prices at our hotel. Both or our meals were nicely prepared and very tasty. Next... More

This is a hard to find place and is in an area, that on first looks, appears to be one of those places that you might not go into. Don't let your eyes mislead you - this is a diamond in the rough. A truly wonderful dinning experience. When you first walk in you see a bar area that has... More

If you are new to the Keys, Castaway's is a great place to start. Down a road, with questionable housing on both sides, is a small place with great seafood and sushi, a great beer selection, and enough of the locals (aka Keys Critters) to create a memorable experience.

We went to eat a early lunch before our chartered fishing trip. We got the "king of the jungle" as a starter. I had a blackened fish sandwich and my sister in law got the fish tacos... All the food was delicious. Our server was new and didn't know a lot about the options or menu but he was nice... More
