Just had probably one of the worst meals I've ever had. My husband had the shrimp, scallop salad. Horrendous! Bagged iceburg lettuce with bland, tasteless, chewy shrimp and scallops. I've definitely had a better salad at McDonald's. I had the chicken French, which had no flavor whatsoever. Walked out of there $75 later (before tip). Awful! Go there for a... More

Nice location on the lake. Great for a small group gathering. Reasonably priced menu. Outdoor dining available, but can be cool & windy at times.

Wanted to eat outdoors because it was a beautifull evening. Had the crab stuffed haddock, rice and a salad. All 3 were delicious. Waitress was friendly and attentive and price was very reasonable. Would go back again anytime. Bonus was watching the great sunset.

I am a frequent visitor at Castaways because you can't go wrong! The atmosphere and outstanding view is something we cherish here in Rochester and don't get to see all year long, and the food is always pleasing. One of my favorites is the crab dip & chips and I get almost every time I go. Typically my wife and... More

The primary appeal of Castaways is the view -- it is one of very few restaurants in the Rochester area that is situated directly on Lake Ontario. Although prices are rather high, the quality and preparation of the food do not measure up. To get to the patio (the only place worth sitting) you must walk through the restaurant that... More

Food is good; nice menu; known for their bar and friendly staff. Sits on the Lake; across from the Bay; not the greatest neighborhood, but different atmosphere if you are in the area. Decent prices, too.

I ordered one of their more popular chicken dishes. It was chicken with mushrooms, red peppers, sundried tomatoes, and several raviolis in a marsala sauce. After several hours I became violently ill. I was ready to call an ambulance, but after vomiting and going to the bathroom I felt a little better. Castaway is off my list of restaurants. I... More

This was our first time at this establishment I won't say it will be our last. We came here for lunch and sat out on the deck. Great view of the lake and there was a good breeze blowing so we were not too hot. I ordered the blackened talipia sandwich. My meal was ok....not the greatest. Perhaps what I... More
