It's located in one of the back-roads. The place is hidden but it's definitely a local favorite. I had dinner with my family. I enjoyed their beer and the food was delicious. It's not too expensive. I brought my own lobster to cook and they charged my $11.99 ( an appetizer price) to cook, which I thought it was a... More

Arrived late into marathon, and the hungry teen boys needed their bedtime snack. The place is definitely off the beaten path, but don't let that deter you. It's definitely worth the find! The boys proceeded to greatly enjoy the recommended sushi rolls, Spicey Mae and Two Years. Both excellent! Ended the evening with superb homemade Key Lime pie and Coconut... More

We visited Marathon, FL to attend a wedding in June. We ate dinner one night at Castaway and I can't say enough good about it. The food and service were both excellent. I had the coconut shrimp and it was excellent. I have to say I have had this dish from Maine to Florida and this was hands down the... More

Food & service were very good; draft beer selection is outstanding. There is a fresh sushi bar, which seemed to be very popular. The views of a real fishing village are interesting & fun to watch, if you sit outside. It was really warm inside. We moved to the bar, & sat under a ceiling air filter grill that appeared... More

Top notch food and service! The decor sets the mood. King of the Jungle Roll was delicious and the presentation was perfect! The meal started with honey buns which were the kids favorites. Just pick a beer, any beer, they have 'em all! Super friendly staff, great food, great atmosphere! I'll be back👍👍

Since the last time I was here, they have increased the menu by a LOT! They now have 50+ beers on tap, which for me is awesome as I love a great beer. Then we got to the sushi bar and were amazed! They have fresh Lionfish! At first I was tentative about it, but I tried it and it... More
