“Hard to find; Average Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Even our GPS couldn't find this place. It should have been a 5 minute trip from where we were staying, but almost impossible to find. We ended up "guessing" where it was at (inside the resort) and finally found it. The food was average; service was good but a bit pricy;

“Overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

Food was good - we got pizza and wings, but were good. But it cost an arm and a leg! Seriously, $50 for 20 wings and a large pizza. That's it.

“Don't waste your time”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

The inside was smelly we had to sit outside because of the smell. You have to ride an elevator upstairs to the 2nd level which is dark and empty not very safe for kids or women. It's very expensive for what you get. The lemon pepper wings were good. The waitress was very rude and seemed like she did not want to be there.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

Our family went to Castaways over Spring Break. We happened to go on trivia night and had a great time with that. The place was packed so we sat outside on the patio. Wonderful view.The kids had some special requests which were cheerfully filled. The appetizers were great and the grouper sandwich was a favorite. The veggie pizza was also quite tasty. The service was amazing especially considering the large crowd. We had a very enjoyable evening.

“Don't waste time or money”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

We arrived early and rental house was being cleaned. After driving 6 hours we wanted quick and easy food. Castaways was dark and empty so sat outside overlooking lake, which was okay. Our wait person was apathetic and we did not want to tip well, but parties of 9 or more have tip included. After waiting 45 minutes, two girls fried cheese was cheeseless, of 12 cheese wedges only two had cheese, the girls ate the fried breading because they were so hungry. One girl had a Philly cheese steak sandwich, no cheese in it. Two girls had macaroni which looked and tasted like Kraft. My grilled shrimp tacos were mediocre and husbands fried shrimp tacos just okay. Hindsight says we should have driven 10 minutes around the corner to the main PCB area for pizza, burgers or fried shrimp basket.
