For over two years now, COVID has kept us eating at restaurants only outdoors. I decided to go online to look for a few new restaurants that served outdoors. Castaways caught my eye even though it is rated a not-so-great 161 by Tripadvisor. The menu...looked interesting, so we decided to give it a try. Castaways is in the middle of a strip center on Skidaway Road; and you'll probably miss it on your first drive-through, as it is down a walkway between two storefronts. The outdoor dining is on a nice patio with tables under either umbrellas or a big awning. The ambience is "island casual" and prices for the large entries were mid-$twenty range. James, our server, was friendly and very attentive. My wife had lobster and scallop carbonara - lobster bits and three perfectly-seared diver scallops. It was delicious and the portion size was generous. I had the imperial platter - panko-crusted grilled rockfish under lump crab imperial, all served over roasted garlic mashed potatoes and grilled vegetables. The portion size was generous, and this was quite tasty despite being a bit heavy on the red bell pepper. The next time I order this, I will ask that more zucchini be substituted. Both dishes were very light on salt. We both definitely rate Castaways above a lot of restaurants with higher ratings on Tripadvisor.More

Four of us stopped in here right after getting off of our flight from Denver looking forward to some tasty food. However, I was unpleasantly surprised by my crab cake BLT being burnt on one side of the patty. We asked the waitress and she...said that’s how they come. I find that hard to believe. I scraped the black side of the crab cake off and ate the sandwich. It wasn’t very good, but considering half the crab cake had to be scraped away, I guess I shouldn’t have expected much. Everyone else said their meals were good, but everyone agreed my meal didn’t look good. Probably won’t be back.More

Found this place on Google and the food looked delicious and not your typical, so we went and would go back in a heartbeat. Chef Kirk Blaine uses the most interesting ingredients to make unforgettable dishes. Our waitress gets a 4. She was nice and...attentive, but did not know the ingredients in the drink I was getting OR the ingredients in the dishes we ordered. Try the Crab cake dinner...superb! And the shrimp and grits...very unique. Both came with these time Peruvian sweetie peppers❣️More

Simply fabulous. The flavors delivered here are so far above the normal. I ordered two appetizers (crab cakes and firecracker shrimp) and a side of battered steak fries and had more than I could eat. James was a great wait person. The martinis were excellent.... I really love the entre Scored Flounder but decided on the two apps for the diversity of flavors and could not have eaten an entre also. What a meal. You must try this place. I have known Kirk (the owner/chef) as he has moved from one place to another, he has reached his peak here. The food is amazing.More

Having relocated from the NE to Savannah 2 years ago and sampling numerous restaurants, we were very pleasantly surprised with the dinner we enjoyed as one of the best meals!! The Crab Cake entree offered a very generous serving of two crab cakes sitting atop...creamy rice, al dente green beans and the mango salsa as well as presentation made it picture perfect. The Mahi sandwich was also a substantial piece of fish with very tasty aioli on the brioche bun and the side of sauteed veggies were perfection. Both meals were served hot and amply seasoned. Service was friendly and attentive. It's our new go to place!! Kudos to the Chef!More

Its in between two businesses, but we found this place as we have been in the area in the past and didn't know it was there. I had a deliciously nice cold Cosmo, and my Husband had a nice cold draft beer, then the dinner...he has a fish dinner that was delicious, can't remember the name of the fish, I had the Mahi Mahi on top of salad.....the service was great as was the server...will go back next time we are in the area...More

Have been a regular for a long time. Food was fine and service WAS actually the best! Kurt has always presented a great menu and superb local food choices. Servers knew everyone by name and had tons of locals. With an open atrium area it...was a no brainer for a "go to" option during this COVID19 crisis. Then Logan showed up...sadly. Got the order wrong....blamed us...then continued to have an "attitude". We'll give everyone there...hello Megan...a mulligan! Logan was way off the standard deviation curve. Needs re-training or be shown the door fast.More

A local directed us to this restaurant located in a strip shopping center between two buildings. Has a similar vib to Miami and the Keys. There were 7 in our group and we all had different dishes. I had tuna bites which had been seared...and had a light dry rub on top of a combo of peppers. Several had fried shrimp dishes that they complimented. Wait staff was very patient as we did not know the menu. Very nice presentation.More

The Kingston curry was hands down the best curry I’ve ever had. The mermaid mule was also good! Appetizers we had were the tuna tower and firecracker shrimp, both were delicious. 15/10 must go.

This is a great place in Sandfly - creative dishes, mostly seafood oriented - all delicious. They are lucky to have a big open patio so social distancing is easy and they still get lots of seating. Great place, good is terrific and service is...always good. 👍😎More
