“Great Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

The bar is full of locals and tourists, great drink values. Good food, enjoy the housemade chips...great burgers and excellent adult beverages.

You also can't beat the beach location. Sit outside at the bar and enjoy.

“Understated, good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

A very understated restaurant. We were there at night during a rain storm, so I can't speak to the views. Their wine list was good and their food was great, too.

“The Castaway put the Mac in Mac nut pancakes!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

The Castaway is a great little place that has become our favorite breakfast spot on Maui. They serve consistently good food at a good price. The Island Style pancakes with Mac nuts, pineapple and bananas are killer delicious! The omelets are cooked perfectly, as is the Eggs Benedict.
The views from the restaurant are beautiful, and you are steps from the ocean.
This restaurant is clean and the staff are friendly. It is a hidden little gem that you need to try!
We had a Mimosa with Guava juice, and the whales were jumping just off shore. That started our day out wonderfully.
Trust me, you will not leave hungry!

“Been many times pretty much stays the same”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

The food is always average to pretty good. I've mostly eaten sandwiches and burgers. Tried the fish pretty good. The location is especially good during whale season.

“Nice little hideaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

We didn't find this little gem until the second day of our vacation. It's small, but it has an ocean view and the staff are friendly. The tuna salad was a welcome meal after all the rich foods we had been eating so far! They serve great breakfasts that are reasonably priced (eggs bennie done several different ways).
