We were on a week long vacation in the Gorgeous Keys, and after a long day after skipping lunch, we wanted to go to a tasty, high rated restaurant. I saw the reviews on this very page, and we chose to go here. Probably the biggest mistake of the entire trip. Lets get to the point. Driving by this place... More

First off I have to say that we only went here for a light lunch, so cannot comment on the full menu so bear that in mind. We chose to sit outside at the bar, which to be perfectly honest is not that attractive compared to some of the other tiki bars nearby. This has no view, and is surrounded... More

So we were adventurous and decided to dine off the touristy track with reasonable pricing and descent food. We sat outside near the water which was almost perfect except for the flies. We opted for the quitter side of the restaurant since we were a large party with older kids. We did see two manatees which was cool. I ate... More

If you want a "Keys" experience this is it. Off the beaten path (they had a shuttle to take you to and from parking - which was a problem on St. Patrick's Day!) it has a great, funky atmosphere. We were able to get reservations for six people. While the shades were down, and we couldn't see the water, you... More

We had a great dinner at Castaways! We asked to be seated outside, on the water....the tables are on a canal and we got to watch boats come in and dock right beside us - a couple of the fishermen brought their catch past us, which was very cool to see. The server was great - we had plenty of... More

This place was really good! My husband and I went for lunch and enjoyed it very much. We sat outside at first and there were fans and shade, so it wasn't too hot or anything. There was music playing, but it wasn't too loud that you couldn't talk and the service was relatively good. Once people sat next to us... More

We were looking for a local place that served Lionfish. Our hotel and the Captain of our dive boat recommended Castaways. We were unsure what we wanted, but saw they had sushi. Our waitress was very helpful with the "Lionfish" request, and stated, " we can make it anyway you would like." When she over sushi, we were sold. We... More
