Our server was absolutely outstanding and the table attendants were very attentive. I will be returning very soon. Its a shame that Rochester's Fall weather appears to be on the way. Sitting and enjoying the view in nice Summer weather is one of the best parts about dining here.

On a beautiful evening, we decided to try Castaways. The view of the Lake was beautiful. The food was extremely expensive, and the portions were small. The seafood quality was poor. Our waitress could not have been less interested. She did not tell us about any specials, which we heard from another waitress after we had ordered. In addition, all... More

Last week I went for lunch with my mother's senior's group (approx. 25 people). The woman seated across from me ordered a Captain's wrap in which she found a 4" twist tie! She very politely brought it to the attention of our waitress. The waitress's reaction was brusque and her annoyance seemed directed at the diner rather than the responsible... More

Love this place!! Everything is fresh and so good. Anytime they are open on a nice night it will be busy but that doesn't slow them down. Chicken French is the best and there prime rib is melting in your mouth good. We come there by boat on the bay and almost always catch the sunset on lake Ontario. A+

Sunset over Lake Ontario was gorgeous, and the food was good, but the service was very slow. Our waiter was new and there were eight of us so hopefully that was the reason.

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
