“Great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

We went to Castaways for St Patricks day. The service was exceptional,the food very good. Danny was our server and I only wish all waitstaff was like him. They had music all day, cocktails served outside,plenty of room. It was a good time.

“Just bad timing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

We arrived at our hotel at 9:50p and got checked in as quickly as possible. Fresh off the KW Express, we were starving. First 3 places we checked into were closed at 10p. Last in the string was Castaways.

On any other night, I would have been fine with what we got. But after saving our appetite for a good fish meal (Friday in Lent, no less), we were disappointed to find that while the kitchen at Castaway was open, they had switched to their 'late night' menu of fried things and pizza. All in all, this was pretty horrible pizza and amazingly greasy fried things.

Would love to tell you about their menu, but they wouldn't even get out one of the regular menus after 10p.

Good new/bad news - at 10p, the band started up. All your favorite 80's rock and roll, poorly sung by a garage band. But it was entertaining to see that there is life for the over 70 set that seems to populate this place.

On an up-note, our waitress Sandy was a delight.

“Great Pizza!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

Located in the Santini Marina plaza at the south end of Fort Myers Beach. There are a few tables outside in front; most are inside. Food we've had has been good, and there is also entertainment at night, although it gets a bit loud!

“Long time ago”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

I must admit, it's been awhile. The Veal Saltimbuca remains in my memory bank , probably better than the spelling. Nice little bar out back and good food, good service in an out of the way spot. An enjoyable evening! Good value, good time.

“Not what we were expecting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

The restaurant is near our resort at the south end of the island, and was not crowded on a cold night. Based on the pizza recommendation from other reviewers, we went for pizza. Well, ours (the Castaway supreme) was under cooked, surprising with the thin crust. We didn't even finish the small size. The beer was good! Service was fine, the space seemed well laid out with lots of tables for various sizes of parties, and furnishings were comfortable/clean. The place was filling up as the live music time neared. I suspect we just got a mistake, and would give it a second chance.
