Went with a small group of friends and we had a good time on the front patio. I ordered the shrimp and grits and absolutely loved it. It definitely has a kick to it and was a very large portion. I also tried my friend's lobster lasagna and it was very good as well. Overall, everyone seemed to be pleased... More

We had lunch yesterday at Castaways, after spending a few hours on the beach. The atmosphere is very casual, and they welcome people in cover ups and sandy flip flops. We sat on the front porch, so our view was fantastic, directly across from the beach and set up high. Our waiter was extremely attentive and quickly brought our drinks.... More

Great lunch spot. Get here early! Fills up quick! Food is very good. Loved the Cajun Taco! The service staff was excellent. Great music and just a wonderful overall vibe. Directly across the street from a public beach access.

They have live music, which is very good. It's a great place to go out for drinks & to listen to music. The service is a little slow, we gave up on our waitress & just started going to the bar ourselves.

Family favorite - never disappointed! Food is consistently good, service is great and the open air restaurant with views are perfect for the "beachy" vacation dinner!

This place was just okay for us. The crab dip was a great start. The service was just average, and the server added 18% gratuity (although we always tip 20%) to the check for our small party of 2 adults and 3 kids. The entrees were okay, with the entree salad being average, ribs great, crab cake sandwich just okay.... More

Ok. The view is great. That is the only good thing I can say about this place. I wasn't served a single thing that wasn't chewy as hell. The worst sea food I've ever had. Really. Really bad service. Not gonna go back.
