Spectacular deck, decent food, poor service

Went to Castaways for my husbands birthday. It was a beautiful Saturday evening in July and we wanted to be outside. The host was very nice. We arrived around 5PM and were seated immediately outside at a nice table on the large deck overlooking Lake Ontario. It was not crowded when we arrived but... read more

Sitting right on the edge of Lake Ontario is this delightful little restaurant with a huge outdoor deck so you can eat right by the water and enjoy the breezes. Very casual with a full bar and an wonderful menu this is a place you'll want to linger. I had a crabmeat sandwich accompanied by cole slaw for lunch. It... More

It is a typical great location with ok food. The back deck at night watching the sunset on the lake is awesome. The ambience is what will bring u there. The food is eatable but it is on plastic table and plastic chairs. Quantity of the food is good and you will not leave hungry.

Food was spotty, no crab in crab cake, fish overcooked, crab legs tasted frozen, vegetables were inedible. Scallops and the view were the only things worth mentioning.

I enjoyed the food, but depending on when you go, service can be slow. I think it is worth the wait. Enjoy the view, just expect a wait after 6:00pm on a weekend.

This was one of those situations where I made a reservation and then checked out the reviews! After looking at the reviews, I was somewhat nervous as they were all over the map! However, we had a really good dinner (6 of us) with 4 prime ribs, one stuffed haddock and one top sirloin. One rib was slightly overdone but... More

Great food and menu at a reasonable cost and super great view on outdoor patio overlooking lake and interesting boating activities on the lake. Very good selection of food and many servers of food. Drinks are on expensive side but worth it for the total ambiance of summer dining on lake. Inside dining is not impressive. Seating is too close... More

Four friends met here for lunch on a gorgeous day and loved everything about this place! Our food choices included the neptune salad, Boston cold plate, seafood bisque, coconut shrimp appetizer, crab dip appetizer and all were GREAT! The outdoor seating (we chose the sun because it was just a little cool) was very comfortable. Our server was very accommodating... More

The service and food here was amazing. The Chicken French was the best I have ever had. I will definitely be coming back! Beautiful view as well.

If you are looking for a nice view of Lake Ontario and you don't mind average food, then this would be okay. It could be cleaner too.
