Amazing menu. Plenty of options. Not to many for kids though. Pepsi only establishment. :-( Their sushi menu is off the chain. Rolls are well sized and creatively named. Many cooked options for the folks who insist on cooked sushi. If u order the Blackened Chicken Alfredo be sure and bring your appetite. Wow - a lot of chicken. The... More

I love going to restaurants in the Florida Keys with old school kitschy nautical decorations and The Castaway Restaurant delivers big time. To get to this Marathon landmark one must drive past old shacks, trailers, commercial fishing boat docks, and discarded buoys. And just when you think that there's no restaurant back there you come upon a lot filled with... More

Awesome sushi. King of the jungle lip fish roll was great! Colton the sushi shed is amazing. Vicky the bartender is so nice and helpful also loved the conch salad and gym rat roll. Can't wait to come back for the non sushi menu. So much to choose from. Have to try the shrimp Reuben !

We always come back to this place for the great Lemon Chicken dish. I don't know how they make it - and they won't tell you - but it's wonderful! Always busy here. Atmosphere is okay but nothing special. It's on a canal so if you sit outside you're on the canal. We like to stay inside. Give the Lemon... More

When in the Middle Keys make this a stop. We went here for dinner. The food was fresh and very good! We had snapper and mahi specials and they were fabulous! The service and staff were also a plus. They were attentive and knowledgeable without being over bearing. We also asked our server about things to do in the area... More

We chose this place after reading several Trip Advisor reviews, and I'm so glad we did. The service was excellent, the menu large (52 beers in draft!) and diverse and everything we had was amaze balls. Try the Sailor's Sedative and the Lionfish. You won't be disappointed!

We were told about this place from a local and he was right on! The service was good and the food was excellent. I never had honey buns before and they were to die for! I had the coconut hogfish and that was the best tasting fish I had all trip!

Great lion fish sushi special. A little on the pricy side, but fun to eat an invasive species caught locally. The Hawaiian Poke salad is amazing! The grouper sandwich was unremarkable.

A local highly recommended the Castaway to us while staying at the Marriott Courtyard in Marathon. The place was great. A wide variety of choices, large portions and reasonable prices. We had the lion fish sashimi and it was amazing, along with the other sushi we had. Great beer selection too.
