If you are in the Holden Beach area Castaways is a must see. The food is great, the beer is cold, and the atmosphere is amazing. Live music and great people make for a wonderful time. Come in for dinner and stay for the drinks and the entertainment. And if you are lucky enough to sit upstairs on their deck... More

We love Castaways! Its one of our favorite spots at Holden Beach! They have the best homemade chips & salsa...as well as crab dip & pita bread! The bartender, Phillip, is great & the staff have always been so accommodating! AND you can't beat the view...especially with the new upper deck addition! Highly recommended!

The view is nice of the beach! Not thrilled with the food. Service was slow and when I finally got my lunch is was cold. The place didn't seem that crowded so not sure why it took forever and then when we got it what we ordered was cold.

Nice restaurant with good service and a nice menu - but I didn't really hit on an item that I enjoyed. I might go back and try something else.

I am really conflicted writing this review because I ALWAYS enjoy hanging out at Castaways, and I really want the food to be good, but the truth is the food just isn't, and its way overpriced for the quality (or rather lack thereof) that you get. Castaways is an awesome place to hang out. Plenty of TV's to watch the... More

I had seafood Mac and cheese. It was really good with crab and shrimp. We had a great dinner that was relaxing and yummy. Then we went upstairs to the roof bar and had an even better time overlooking the ocean and met new friends. It was our last night and couldn't have asked for anything better

My wife and I had dinner at Castaway's on Friday evening, August 23rd, 2013. This is at end of the busy vacation season In NC. We were seated promptly when we arrived but the place filled up fast. If we had waited until 7:30pm we would had a wait. We were told "the Crab Dip is great" so we ordered... More
