Happy Birthday to my husband

Took my husband to Castaway for a birthday dinner. We were seated on the deck with a beautiful lake view. The service started out great with drinks and appetizers arriving promptly. The stuffed mushrooms were over done and a bit charred on top but still tasty. After that things started to fall... read more

I went to Castaways' for the first time in my life, after having lived in New York for over 41 years. I can NOT express how beautiful the setting is there. Just, gorgeous. I also have had the opportunity to meet several of the staff members - all of which have been very kind, considerate, attentive, and quite personable. I... More

My husband and I wanted a nice late Sunday afternoon lunch by the lake. We drove from Chili to Castaways in Webster about a 30 minute drive. Unfortunately, we got there at 3:00pm, which is apparently NOT a good time to go to Castaways that's when they transition from lunch to dinner kitchen staff. In our case the kitchen totally... More

I went here on a gorgeous day. The view of the lake was wonderful and they have a lot of tables in various configurations outdoors, covered-outdoors and inside. It is very casual. I like it that they did not rush me when I wanted a drink after eating my meal so I could linger and enjoy the breeze more. Food... More

We recently visited Castaways for dinner and really enjoyed it. My husband and I both had the prime rib and it was very good - just the right size, cooked exactly as ordered and very tasty. It came with a salad and baked potato - pretty basic. It's priced on the high side for the same meal at most any... More

Resturant has a great view of lake. Service on a busy Saturday is horrible! Food was ok but slow coming out! Served pre made salad. Taste like it came out of a bag. Had crab appetizer that took forever to come out and was somewhat cold. Ordered 2 fish fries, 1 chicken French and a kids meal shrimp dinner. Again,... More

I went with myself my mother, and my sister, and in some way all of us were somewhat disappointed in our food. I had the lobster roll, which I did enjoy, however the Mac salad that came with it, was definitely less than I had hoped for! My poor sister had the crab cakes, and to her dismay, they were... More

I visited Castaways again today. The atmosphere is great, the staff is accomodating. Castaways either needs a new recipe for a lobster roll or should serve what they describe. The roll is described on the menu as chunks of lobster......and i asked if it was real or imitation and they said it was real. The lobster was shredded and had... More
