Thoroughly Good

There are many things to enjoy in the Keys. One is finding a place where you can unwind after calling in a port after facing a force 11 storm under sail. The Castaway is just the place.

We spent the day snorkeling and the boat captain recommended we try Castaway for dinner, it was completely worth it! It was easily some of the best food we have ever had. We had conch fritters, crab cakes, and the special that night was Lionfish. Everything was amazing, from the food, to drinks, to service. We sat outside under the... More

Heading for Burdines, based on recommendations, found it way too long a wait, we decided to give Castaways a try. Good choice. Lunch was very good, decently priced, and the outside seating along the waterfront pleasant. A little run down looking with little parking, however if you persevere, you will have an enjoyable Keys experience. We will return

Although this is off the main drag and not much to look at...what a great find. There were seven of us and they did not want to accomodate us at first, but then put us out back on the water. Well worth it! The server was the best! The food was really worth it. Go hungry, portions are generous and... More

We had heard good things on our snuba tour during the day about Castaway so we met friends out for dinner. The waitress was pretty snippy, did not tell us about the specials for about 20 min after she told us about them then was in a hurry to take our order. The food was good from sushi to fried... More

Visited with another couple. Sat inside and glad because outside dining area filled with smokers. Bad enough to walk through it on way out. All of our lunches were just average. Long happy hour main attraction.

We went to this restaurant because we had seen that the chef would cook your catch and the reviews were good. So off we went. As we were driving towards it we realized it was in a trailer park which would make you want to drive away. Do not drive away. This restaurant is a lot of fun and the... More

My fiancée and I had dinner here this week, I think we were both a little alarmed driving in to the restaurant but once inside all concerns had been squelched . There is a very large selection of drinks and a wide range of seafood to choose from. We both greatly enjoyed our meals and found it to be a... More

After reading reviews here, we decided to head to Castaway's instead of Burdines. We ate at the outside Tiki Bar and it was a real dump. The place looked dirty, needed paint badly and just looked bad. The food was fairly good though and the service was good at the bar. I had the shrimp basket and my husband had... More

We ate dinner at the Castaway 3 nights during our vacation. We loved the atmosphere. Laid back place what you think of when visiting the Keys right on the dock. Shrimp dishes excellent, honey buns are to die for served with meal. Hogfish special was over cooked and dry to my liking. The waitress took it off our bill. Very... More
