We had a lovely dinner at Castaways. This is a beautiful place to get a good meal and enjoy the atmosphere.

My friend and I decided to meet at 3:30pm which must have been between the two server shifts. There were only two people working the entire patio. I stood around for a bit before being told to seat myself and then it took some time for the server to take our drink order as well as bring them to us.... More

The table by the lake was beautiful. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. The coconut crusted Grouper was excellent. I don't usually comment about the drinks, but I had a white Russian and it was one of the best I have ever had. I would highly recommend the coconut shrimp as my husband had it and said it was...

My wife and I took the short drive from Honeoye Falls to Castaways in Webster. We were looking to relax outside and enjoy the nice weather. This was our first time at Castaways but it will not be the last. We received a warm greeting by the owner and were seated outside on their huge deck. The atmosphere was like... More

This is the type of restaurant that has the potential to be stellar but fails miserably. It's clear that they are banking on location alone to garner patrons, as they put absolutely ZERO effort into their food and service. The other TripAdvisor reviews regarding mediocre food and dreadful service were confirmed during my recent visit. A group of us were... More

My boss brought us for a lunch meeting, as a treat from our usual monthly get together. We were there fairly early, about 11:45, on a Thursday. The biggest draw of the Castaways is undoubtedly the outdoor dining (with covered and uncovered areas). Sitting there on a sunny day, with a commanding view of Lake Ontario, you hardly care what...

Their deck is a great place to eat dinner on a hot summer evening; beautiful view of the lake. This is a nice, average Rochester restaurant. The food was good; I had the special of the day: mahi mahi with mango salsa tasted very good. My wife had the coconut shrimp and said it was fine. Everything was fine, but... More

The food at Castaways is hit or miss. Sometimes it's very good and others it's average. Today was a mediocre day. The soft shell clam special was so breaded, I could have been eating haddock and not known the difference. Luckily the small part that wasn't breaded tasted good. Surprisingly today, our service was not up to par. Our server... More

Perfect spot for dinner and drinks outside on a beautiful summer evening - you may even run into old friends! The indoor bar is comfortable while waiting for a table and the bartenders are great! The food is good but the service can be rushed. Our server was actually a bit rude and blamed it on how busy she was.... More

This is a nice place to eat if you can be outside. The food is good (nothing special) but the location on the lake shore is fantastic
