“Nice family owned steak place.”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

I really enjoy going to locally owned places versus the chains. It is so much nicer and the customer service is traditionally gauranteed to be way better. The steaks are great here.

“Great choices, friendly atmosphere”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

I love their homemade italian salad dressing, plus their pizza's are wonderful, too. They have a wide variety on their menu, but I usually get the same yummy dishes every time I go.

“Great family place”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

My family has come there for many years and we always love it! The steak daily style is always great and it is way better than any chain and u know where it comes from not a box! The service is great and they have done a lot in the past few years to improve the restaurant. I just get to tired of hearing people complain on reviews I think most people only put the bad reviews to make them feel better........

Reviewed February 7, 2012

The food was average but the place was really noisy. Our waitress had too much to do and was not very attentive.

“Not the great place it used to be”
Reviewed January 16, 2012

Unfortunately, this restaurant has gone down hill. Steaks are priced for a high class restaurant, but high class it is not. Upon entering the restaurant, I noticed a bad odor, which curbed my appetite from the start. On the plus side, the staff was friendly. The restaruant lacks atmosphere, but yet prices are quite expensive. The baked potatoes appear to have been cooked in the morning and kept warm all day. A dinner for two was over $50 with tax and tip, but was reduced to $27 after applying our restaurant.com coupon. However, the Castaways has a sign on the door that it will not accept restaruant.com coupons after January. Tesxas Roadhouse is 10 times better . . . cheaper, better steaks, better rolls, better potatoes, and better atmosphere.
