12 of us from a local church men's group had a dinner meeting tonight and everything was fabulous. From the waiter to the excellent food the entire experience was just terrific. I would highly recommend Castaways for a great meal on the seacoast!

We stopped in for lunch on a rainy day. The staff was very polite and attentive. The food was great. The steamers were fresh and the lobster roll was fantastic. They had a nice selection of tap beer as well. I would definitely go back!

There’s no excuse for that. Not this time of f year and that price (17). Also two kinds of white wine - out of the one I wanted. Used to be much better.
