First time going to the Shipwreck and will never be back. Honestly, it's quite a fitting name for this restaurant a "Shipwreck". The waitress was unbelievably rude. She seemed to have had an attitude from the moment she came to take our drink order. She couldn't even acknowledge my seven year old when asking if they have milk or her... More

First time back to Shipwreck Bay since last summer, visiting our friends who have a place here on the lake. Shipwreck has done a nice job expanding the deck for outdoor seating. A fun, lively place to meet up with friends for an afternoon or evening. Good bar food---my hubby and I liked the burgers; thick and juicy on really... More

We ate there twice in two days, once for lunch, once for breakfast. Both times, the service was good, and the menu is varied. Lots of standard bar fare, but several salads as well. We were there on a Saturday for breakfast, and enjoyed the breakfast buffet, which offered a couple of types of eggs, biscuits and gravy, and sausage,... More

We go here whenever we want to get off the boat and have a cold beverages and something light to eat. The menu is varied. We usually go appetizers and just relax on the deck. Great outdoor bar, with occasional live entertainment. Volleyball and a playground for the kids. Service is usally good. As a lot of others have said,... More

If you are headed out for a drink at sunset, Shipwreck Bay should be high on your list. The views from the deck are first rate. The food was okay, but mostly fried and pretty heavy. My wife got the all-you-can-eat chicken, and she said it was fine but skipped the other things on the buffet. The chicken quesadillas were... More

Fun place to spend an afternoon in the summer! They have beach volleyball, docks, playground for kiddos and plenty of outside seating. Beautiful view of the lake. Service is fast and friendly. Food was good! Good for families during the day but they also offer a fun bar scene at night with bands playing outside on the patio.

Best restaurant on Castle Rock Lake. Quick, friendly service, great food, great views. Good for families too. Small indoor dining room, but can eat in bar and huge outdoor patio. Outdoor playsets keep the kiddos occupies too

We stopped here for lunch to get accustomed to the area before returning this summer. This place is one of the better marinas with a bar, restaurant, and outdoor patio seating in the area. We were told the patio area is new and that during the summer they have bands playing. The bar is a sports bar with multple TV's.... More

Outdoor seating where smoking is permitted limited the number of seats where we could sit free of second-hand smoke. Inside was okay. Limited menu didn't offer the pasta we sought.

This place what appears to be a typical on-the-lake bar and grill - and in some ways it is. But with outdoor and indoor seating it works no matter what kind of day and the view of Castle Rock Lake is superb. The food took longer than it should have to get but the bartenders more than made up for... More
