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

The ambiance is great if the weather is nice enough to sit outside. The food is only average at best so you really go for the lake view

Craving a nice seafood dish and wanting to sit along the water? Then you want to go to Castaways in Webster. They have a large selection of seafood dishes from fish (and I mean more than the standard fish fry and salmon with dill sauce selection we normally see in Rochester) to steak to chicken. Casual seating outside with beautiful... More

After being promised a prime table to celebrate our 20th anniversary we were not even seated right next to the lake. The table in front of us had some lady yelling at her family the entire time. The wine list was terrible. The prices were way to high for the low low low quality of food served. I was given... More
