great place to go in the area if you want to sit and eat outside! I've been here several times and have never had a bad meal or experience!

Tried it and will never be going back. The food was sub-par at best and the price was outrageous. Also the service was questionable. And who charges $2.50 for a soft drink and $2.50 for refills? Absolute ridiculousness. Save your time and money and go somewhere else.

This little place has the best seafood and burgers. Great place to have lunch or supper on a nice hot summer day!

I've been to Castaways a number of times over the years, and have to say that while the location, especially in the summer, offers terrific ambiance, being on the lakeshore, the food is average, at best. The staff is always friendly, however, and try their best to make your visit enjoyable, but the food lacks that extra "spark" that separates... More

My husband and I came for Valentine's Day this year. We had such a nice time! The food was excellent- I had the sea bass special and my husband had mushroom raviolis. I have food allergies and my dinner was made to accommodate them. Our waitress was very attentive and sweet. We will absolutely be back!

I was at Castaways over the weekend and had the best prim rib that I have ever had. I like mine rare, and it was done to perfection. My only complaint was that I did not order get the bigger cut. My wife enjoyed the crab cake and my two kids had the chicken French. The service was knowledgeable, and... More

On the web, the place seems like a good combination - seafood, right on the shore of Lake Ontario. The actual experience doesn't live up to the promise, however. The seafood was not fresh, the corn over-cooked, the vegetable bland... At least the beer was cold.

There were about 35 people in total. I must say Shane and his employees did NOT disappoint. The appetizers included shrimp(the size of which were the... More
