Castaway is off one of the Keys "local" restaurants. It's hidden away on the Atlantic side of the island and unless you know about it you'd never know it was there. We were lucky enough to be told about Castaway's by Captain Jeff of "Hook-Em-All" charters. We were in the Keys for ten days and ate at Castaway's twice for dinner. Though it was about a thirty minute drive from where we were staying it was well worth the trip. Our party of eight had sushi, prime rib, fish, and shimp dinners... all were EXCEPTIONAL !!

The atmosphere is an open dining room and was a little loud - only because it was full. Outdoor dining had two areas; the front bar with live music and the back by the water, which was much more quiet. It isn't the white table cloth restaurant - so don't go there expecting that; it's exceptional food served in a traditional Key's environment... AWESOME !!!

We sailed into Marathon last week, after several days at sea, ready for some great food and drink. Following some local recommendations, we ended up at the Castaway and were not disappointed. We've been back three times in the past week and each time whatever we ordered has been outstanding. The Skipper's cut sirloin is a killer - thick cut and tender; the special sashimi dinner is a true delight; and the fish is wonderful - especially any "day's catch." The servers are pleasant and attentive and some interesting folks usually populate the bar. You just cannot go wrong at this place... go hungry and thirsty and remember - it's the Keys.

some folks at our campground told us abut this place. read reviews on trip advisor and went to see for ourselves. if your looking for great food in a place off the beaten path then this is it. nestled amongst the docks with herons and pelicans all over we enjoyed the food and the service and would go back anytime we are here. we own our own business and understand good service. this is the place...

Last night was our Homecoming Night so me and my date decided to make a reservation for two and have a dinner before the dance. We thought of eating at Castaway since everything is ALWAYS great. I personally never had a bad experience and every time I eat here, there is always something new and special. We started off our dinner with Calamari. I had the Crabcake Dinner while my date had their special sushi roll called 2 Year Roll (ask the story behind the name of it!) and Austin Roll. He said it was definitely the best sushi roll he ever had. It was awesome - EVERYTHING was awesome! We left really happy and in love with THE FOOD, SERVICE and PLACE. We will definitely eat again here - probably for the Prom. :)
Thank you Cindy and Thank you Castaway! It was a good start of the memorable night and [again] everything was great as always!
