“Gigging & Sushi in the Keys”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2010

While gigging in South Florida and the Keys we stopped in Marathon for a few days before heading down to Key West. The whole band Supertzar loves seafood so we stopped and asked someone where was the best place with the best seafood and more importantly - where we could be ourselves. We were all glad that person recommended the Castaway restaurant because the people were friendly and caring and the food was absolutely killer!! Seriously, right before the 7 mile bridge do not miss Castaway and their seafood!!! Thank you Castaway!!!!......And thanks for playing great music!!! Love you guys man!! >>>>>> Jozzy and Supertzar

“Best Blackened Snapper in the Middle Keys”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2010

Castaway serves the most delicious blackenecd snapper in the Marathon, FL area. And the best coconut fried fish ever. Super sushi bar. Love their tuna sashimi. A bonus service is that they will cook your catch. Nothing's better than catching your own yellowtail snapper out on the reef, then bringing it to Castaway to have it prepared in your favorite way. If seafood is not your thing, their prime rib is unforgettably scrumptious. Casual & fun atmosphere with the option for outdoor dining too. They are famous for their honeybuns, served with all entres. Owner John Mirabella cares about your satisfaction & will no doubt stop by your table to say hello.

“Great consistent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2010

My wife and I have been going to Marathon on a regular basis for the past twelve years.
we discovered castaway while we where staying on our boat at a nearby marina.We had a very enjoyable experience.We have visited several restaurants in the keys and consistency is hard to find. We have had many dining experiences at Castaway and they have never failed to please us with fresh quality food and great service. They have a wide variety of menu items that will satisfy any appetite. When I need a place to take friends and family while I am in the Keys,This is where we take them.

“Great Sushi! Great Fish! Great steak! Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2010

When you are in Marathon eat the fish! And some of the freshest fish in the keys is at Castaways. I live in Miami and own a house in Marathon and visit on a regular basis. The main dining room was completly re done 3 years ago and cool and comfortable with 20 foot cielings. Yes you do pass by a trailer park to get to the waterfront restuarant. But dangereous? No way! It is not cheap but that is the price you pay for fresh seafood. You can taste the difference! those of us who visit the keys regularly appreciate the local charm of the safe surrounding neighborhood.

“Cool location, great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2010

We enjoyed our evening at Castaways - food, service and atmosphere were great and we really enjoyed the live music. We ate inside and then moved outside for music and drinks - our bartender was friendly and attentive.

I would guess that the reviewer who trashed the location just doesn't 'get' Marathon - yes, this is a true locals place, but worth the trip for visitors.
