Walked to Castaway for a drink and to listen to some music. The place was packed and fun until the waitress came for last call at 10:45pm. Also would have loved some local beers. The bar has some fun potential for the early crowd.

Great food. I had the seafood salad wrap, my hubby had the tuna taco and my sister in law had the shrimp burger. We highly recommend all! Great value, views and atmosphere, we will make a return to this gem!

the outdoorsy atmosphere was surprisingly comfortable with the ceiling fans keeping the air moving .....even on a very hot evening!!! The selection of foods (and beverages) was outstanding. The service was efficient and very friendly. The food (prepare for a Cajun influence!) was excellent!! A great place for lunch or dinner or carryout. Oh, by the way, the live entertainment... More

Had a nice lunch here to escape the heat. Laid back, nice view. Hope to come back at night for live music. Cajun grouper wrap was delicious as was the crab cake sandwich. Nice place without having to cross the bridge.

Raining, Winds, Waves.... lets go eat! Nice place and had a good crowd during a hurricaine. That may be related to so many places not having enough sense to stay open an serve food to an island full of vacationers. Quickly seated. Pleasant staff. Food out quick. Nice beer selection for right on the beach. Shrimp burgers tasty but have... More

We ate here for lunch the shrimp burger was amazing. They have a lot to pick from on menu and you can go there with your family or for an adult outing. They have live music every night and the wait staff is pretty friendly. There is a variety of beers and cocktails to choose from. Pineapple upside down shot...delicious!... More

Located right in the heart of Holden Beach just across the street from the beach. Open air and upper deck is open to the sky so it can be very hot for lunch. This is just a good beach restaurant. Cold beer and good seafood.

We went to Castaways on a Friday night to enjoy the live entertainment. We didn't have a meal, just drinks and apps. The atmosphere is great! It's open air, with ocean view. The food and drinks were good, the entertainment was good and the service was good. Would definitely go back if I ever visit Holden Beach again.
