Quaint spot off the main drag!

I looked on Trip Advisor to get some suggestions on a good restaurant in the upper Keys. Lots of good reviews on this restaurant, they were spot on. One of the best meals I have ever had. I had Mahi Mahi, I have been eating fish literally all my life and this was great!! It is a little out of... read more

Wanted to eat at a place off the eaten path but on water. This place fit the bill. Had a rustic atmosphere. We sat right on the canal and enjoyed seeing the local fishing boats and shanty houses. The food was very fresh and delicious. They had a happy hour menu with peel and eat shrimp for $2 that were... More

My wife and I went to Castaway for lunch after a wonderful time snuba diving in Marathon. Our snuba instructor actually recommended it and his recommendation was fantastic. The food is incredibly fresh and the decor is fun and relaxed. If you love sushi, we highly recommend the King of the Jungle roll. Not only did it taste amazing, by... More

Recommended by several locals, we ate at the Castaway after another long tourist day. What a nice surprise! Located at a marina, very casual atmosphere. A bit off the main drag, but don't let that deter you! They have a very nice menu and service is excellent. We started with clams steamed in garlic butter--not one of the app selections... More

food was very good, service attentive however we totally upset a server by sitting at a table in her section when we were just having cocktails (we were there 2x once at 4:00pm and once for dinner), it is in an offbeat location and if I didn't see trip advisor we would never have found it, kinda ghettoish area

Stopped in for dinner on Mother's Day! Honey buns were amazing! Mother's Day special, prime rib and lobster was delicious. The veggies that came with the dinners were very tasty. Coconut shrimp were cooked very well and had a great flavor. All in all a great dinner and we saw a manatee in the water, too!

We came during Happy Hour and enjoyed two dozen steamed shrimp for $8.00, a seafood platter that fed both of us that included clams, oysters, fish, shrimp, scallops for $20.00. Drink prices were great. We watched manatees surface beside us, pelicans, egrets, and more while we dined. Every aspect was superb. And...it was a no smoking oudoor patio. Yea!

We have been to Castaway on our last trip to Marathon. It still was great. Not a very nice restaurant but the food totally makes up for it. I had the Seven Seas Roll and it was awesome!! The selection of beers was outstanding and we took advantage of the beer sampler for $10 and tried some new ones. The... More
