This the second time we visited. Our first trip was about a month prior and had a better time. This time the drink we enjoyed the first time was not available. The fish portions were smaller and the service was not so good. I had to ask three times for water before I got it. Over all not so happy with this visit.

Great seafood. The prices were reasonable. Some of the dishes weren't seasoned to we'll but the food was prepared perfectly. I especially enjoyed the soft she'll crab and gumbo!!

Went here after the kids got out for summer. Since we had food poisoning back in August from Sushi (Cancun Grand Oasis, see my review) the kids and I can't do seafood anymore so we got burgers. The burgers were very tasty, great buns and good onion rings. We had to wait incredibly long to get our food and were seated at a table by the bar. The bar is very loud and full of drinkers obviously so it seemed like even longer than the approximately 45 minute wait for the food that it was. The atmosphere is dingy, low ceilings and we say in our family, "Salty." We would not return.

we arrived late into Port A on a Sunday night. after checking into our condo we decided to get something to eat. Castaways looked like one of those quirky places with good food.. We ate "outside" on one of the picnic tables. we all ordered the friend shrimp. it they were big and good.. but served on a stryofoam plate with some less than tasteful fries. the service was slow, I would not say rude, more than apathetic. the speed was not an issue for us as we were on vacation--island time. but compaired to other resturants we would visit throughout the week this was weak.

We weren't in a hurry. After calling to see if baked potatoes were available (due to a dietary need) and that dogs were allowed on the patio we arrived at 8 pm. We proceeded to wait for a spot on the patio due to bringing our dog. We expected a bit of a wait. As it approached 9 p.m., no tables had been vacated on the patio, however the long, bar-like table had. We had to hunt down the hostess and ask to be seated there. She seemed surprised by our request. Luckily we received the last baked potato and grilled shrimp in the shells. We enjoyed our food in spite of the late hour but would not recommend this restaurant to anyone with a dog in tow. How sad as there are so few restaurants that make this a priority.
