First, the restaurant is located in a not desirable part of town. Our first look at the place and we weren't sure if we wanted to eat there. Once we got inside we we were pleasantly surprised. The waitress was great! We had fast service. The food was very good ! We will go back again!!

Not the fanciest restaurant you'll ever go to but that's what the Keys are all about. The food though was outstanding and the waiter, whose name I can't remember, was terrific. The menu was very diverse and the food was perfectly prepared. Strongly recommended.

It started with the very entertaining and hospitable Sam, our waiter. He did a great job, found solutions to our requests, and showed us how to prep the honeybuns. The food was delicious, especially the Tuna Tatake. I did not like the hogfish personally, but everyone else was very pleased with their food. The sushi is fantastic, so I would... More

After reading bad reviews and some good reviews I have to agree....... The Food was fresh, tasted delicious, and I loved the Bella beer (made by Castaway). M wife had the Seven seas roll and enjoyed it, I got the stuffed Hog fish and it was excellent. I too live in FL and eat lots of fresh caught fish from... More

Location can best be described as being in the middle of a trailer park. Food was adequate but nothing special. Beer choices were only so so. Sushi was just OK. Had to listen to restaurant workers fighting while eating our salad.

Went there for dinner tonight, after having been here for appetizers back on a trip in January of this year. We are native Floridians and have both been eating fish all of our lives. I am in my early 50's. The waiter bragged that the fish was caught on nearly a daily basis by the owner, so everything was fresh.... More

Castaway was an absolutely perfect choice for dining. One of the biggest impressions you get is the food. Everything was super fresh and very delicious. My sister and I ordered their Florida Lobster, Lionfish, and Maine Lobster Dinner. Castaway put together the ingredients in an artistic and perfectly-executed way. The Florida Lobster was caught that day as most of their... More

When I was on my vacation in Florida, I was looking for a really exceptional experience and I found it at Castaway. This restaurant offered one of the best meals I've ever had. It was fancy yet unpretentious, tasteful, exquisite, and so refined. The food and the decor! I am a big sushi fan. I have tried a huge variety... More

My family and I had the pleasure of dining at Castaways last week and we are so happy we did. Sam the waiter was extraordinary in his attitude and friendliness. The hog snapper was outstanding as was the Snapper Mazatlan. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a great dinner...and don't forget the Key Lime Pie, best... More
