Chris Gould is the best server in the entire world. Nothing can stop this guy. Does he have super powers or something? I gave a rating of 5 out of 5, but Chris gets credit for all 5. Yeah the food is great, but nothing...More

Stopped by for lunch ordered clam chowder with salad. Clam chowder was pretty good, I would definitely come back again. I have been here in past trips to Long Beach and their food has always been good!

During our recent stay in Long Beach 10/18 - 10/21/2018 we ate at the Castaways four times. One reason this is our favorite place to eat is because it’s within walking distance of our motel, but the main reason is because of the great steaks...More

We had a large extended family gathering out on the town, eleven total, plus our Lab. We had heard the chowder here was good. There was a variety of foods ordered (including the chowder in the bread bowl which WAS good!) and all were happy...More
