Food was just OK. Everything is an extra charge. I'm surprised they didn't charge us for napkins and utensil rental. 2 of us asked for a side of BBQ sauce and we were brought 2 very small cups- that was $1.00 extra! Besides what you order, nothing else comes with a sandwich - no chips, pickles, etc. We wont be... More

Had lunch here Saturday with a couple of buddies and I was not all that impressed. Nothing I had was bad, but nothing special. We arrived around 12:10 and the place was not very busy but service was a tad on the slow side in my opinion, just took too long to get drinks. Took about 10 minutes to get... More

We loved our cheese fries and the big order of blue cheese chips. The wings were real small but they gave you a bunch because of it and they were pretty good. The thing from our group that got the worse review was the club but also that person is pickier than the rest of us. Good place to chill... More

Was not aware restaurant had changed hands until arriving on a Friday around 7pm and the place was dead. About three tables occupied. Three years ago, the place was packed. Very limited menu compared to previous ownership. The $9.95 burger was not bad, but the homemade chips were stale. The 12oz bottle of Budweiser cost $4.50, which I thought was... More

I loved taking friends by boat to Dockside Grill back in the day (great food with average service). This last time was a disappointment at Castaway's. I ordered the Mahi Sandwich and it was overcooked. We were the only people there, so not sure what happened back in the kitchen. Portion was extremely small. Reminded me of the Old Wendy's... More

Wow, haven't been here for quite a while, so after not eating at Sunset Cove (that place is ridiculous with all of their new rules), we figured that Castaways was going to be a great alternative. Boy were we wrong. The menu changed, and I guess so did the cooks and management. The first 2 things that I wanted to... More

A year or two ago when this place reopened as Castaways it was really good, not anymore! our food took an hour, came in two batches 20 minutes apart and was terrible. My taco salad that was billed as a flour tortilla shell was a bed of corn chips, the lettuce was old and I have been sick since I... More

Our first visit to this wonderful location on Lake Lanier at Holiday Marina was wonderful. The service was great and the grilled mahi tacos fantastic. We have always loved coming here when it was under different management (Dockside Grill). Our second visit with two other couples was not what we experienced the first time. I ordered the same mahi tacos... More

Do not go here. Food was horrible. It's scene of boaters pumping gas in their boats is not what you wanna see when eating cold food. Did I mention the service? HORRIBLE TOO. This place should've stayed closed. The only thing going for them is that they are in a big marina and when people are coming off their boats... More

Excellent fresh made to order items. The wait is a bit longer on the weekends but well worth it. Try the blacked Mahi with their homemade mango salsa. They also have their own chips and fresh red pepper hummus. It's a wide selection for sure, from burgers, fish taco's, wraps, salads and more. The owner is super friendly and walks... More
