We went to Castaways during a recent trip to Port Aransas. It was a Sunday night and the place was very busy. I have been there several times years ago. The place is small, but has been updated. There is still little "ambiance" to this restaurant, but the food was always good. We were seated quickly with a party of... More

The menu has so much to choose from. Drinks are good and the wait isnt too bad most of the time.Located right on the main road Allister and plenty of parking. Best place to eat for our family.

Just randomly stopped here for dinner and I am so glad I did! When the hostess saw that I was dining by myself, she told me she would seat me in someone's section that would take good care of me and she was right. My server, Cruz, was very attentive and made me feel like I was his only table.... More

Loved the large portion of calamari, but the food needed flavor. Food was bland , i orderd the shrimp lovers plate and my wife had the platter with had fish,shrimp and fried oysters. Oysters were good, but fried fish and shrimp needed flavor. Place had a nice atmosphere .

great family restaurant....it may take a good wait if you have a lot in your party but the staff is so very kind. A great menu...especially good if you have small children...they have a great kids menu. Fried or grilled....the food is delicious.

We went there last September and plan to go back in a couple of weeks! We went for lunch and the shrimp was really good. Nice staff laid back old beach town atmosphere.

The atmosphere was really good and cool to hang out. It is very load but of you need a place to sit and eat after the beach this is a good stop. Food was good just need a bit more seasoning "salt" at least. Lot of food for the price. Will be back.

Gumbo was fantastic-flavorful roux and nice amounts of shrimp. Fresh fish (mahi mahi) was amazing. Grilled shrimp was a little off seasoning-wise...grilled to perfection though. Place was packed-did have 30-minute wait, but well worth it. We were promptly served once seated.
