Our family recently enjoyed dinner at Castaways. Everything about our experience was excellent! We sat out on the deck area and the view of the boats and sunset was magnificent. We enjoyed our waitress and appreciated the low pressure atmosphere as we took our time to eat, and converse and watch the sun slowly set.

This is a venerable local spot that offers serviceable food, a nice view of Lake Ontario (which not really that interesting), and OK prices. Service is the "how kin 'I help you darlin'" style but pretty good. Parking is a little confusing (two lots, the large on across the road)

Location is nice. Decor is okay. Food is absolutely AWFUL!!! We started with salads that had greens and cucumbers which tasted as though they were moldy. Then, we ordered appetizers. My companion had the seafood bisque, which was the color and texture of baked beans and it was not possible to discern ANY seafood in there. It COULD have been... More

Haven't been here in years.....have never had a good meal here....only thing they have going for them is their location....which I must admit is very nice. If you have to go....have a drink and walk across the street to the Bayside Bar and have a great meal.

Very nice menu that offers something for everyone, especially seafood. You can enjoy the view sitting under their outside tent inside. Even the bar offers a view. Staff are friendly and take very good care of you. soups are great - chowder and onion soup. Loved going there in the summer and look forward to going in the winter. Open... More

I've been to the Castaways twice this summer. The first visit, the server was great and although we were assured that the Captain's wrap contained real crab, what we got was imitation crab. The second visit was interesting. First, it appeared to be closed, with the door locked after the posted time it was to open. I heard voices so... More

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+
