Great location, food was average

Went for a fish fry on a Friday night. Not a long wait, and it was great to sit outside on the deck overlooking the lake. The fish was overcooked, so was just not to our liking. The atmosphere and service were good.

I brought a huge group to Castaways and was surprised how well they handled it. There was a lot of chaos with ordering but they did well and got everything right. They really do have a great wait staff. Everything was delicious as well.

Went to Castaways for my June birthday dinner and sat on the outside deck. We got there around 8pm, perfect time for the sunset - and it's a great place to view it! But as many others have mentioned, the view is the highlight of the place. The food is mediocre and overpriced and takes a long time to come... More

We were excited to finally get to go to Castaways. It took some planning on our part, we live far away. We walked in, no one was at the bar.... So much for ordering a drink a relaxing before we order and have dinner. I notice there was a plate on a table in the bar area, covered with a... More

Had a group of 20 people on the deck for a celebration. The appetizer food was incredible, the staff was prompt and wonderful and the view was great. I would highly recommend here!

The food varies, most is fine. It's not the food that brings people here though. Location, location, location!

Stopped on the way home mid-afternoon as our lunch plans did not pan out, and we wanted to be on the lake as it was a beautiful day to be outside. My husband recalled Castaways; we had not been for years having a bad experience in the past. We were immediately seated by a pleasant hostess, who was doubling as... More

Nice view, nice atmosphere. Terrible service, and food is just ok. Proceed very high. You can drop 200 dollars easily. Not what we expected. Portions small, and not spectacular. Probably will try another place next time we visit Webster.
