“Great Find On A Saturday Night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014

Castaways was the first full service restaurant we walked to from our hotel. Great find! Place was packed but we got 3 seats at the bar. Friendly bartenders who poured a good drink. We had the clam strips with fries and a oysters rockefeller appetizer. Clams were meaty and good....great fries (hand cut?). The oysters rockefeller were outstanding. Juicy and briny oyster with fresh spinich and bacon and cheese baked to perfection. All the food coming out of the kitchen looked great. Def. recommended in Long Beach!

“Good fish and chips”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2014

My wife and I stopped in for lunch after receiving a recommendation from a local merchant and were pleased that we did. We both had fish and chips. We liked the beer batter on the 5 smaller sized fish pieces. Neither the fish or the fries were greasy. The accompanying tartar sauce and cole slaw (with dried cranberries) was tasty also. Castaways has a nice selection of beer and wine and since we had lunch in the bar area we were able to chat with the bartender and he gave us some good recommendations for beer from local breweries. The burgers that were coming out of the kitchen looked tempting also. We will definitely go back when we are on the Long Beach peninsula.

“Top notch dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2014

picked it out of AAA guide listing

great chowder-deserves accolades it has won
fish and chips delicious but pieces of fish small- get 4 pieces if hungry

only a few local microbrews on draft

prices gentle
worth a visit

“One of the Best”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2014

Our stay Long Beach this time was from May 5 to May 9, 2014. (Monday night through Thursday night.) Each time we visit Long Beach we eat at the Castaways. We consider it a plus because the restaurant is located within walking distance of the different motels where we stay. This trip we ate at the Castaways 4 times - 3 dinners and 1 lunch. We have always had excellent service and really good food. We think they have some of the best food in Long Beach. I read the reviews and see they have some poor ones and I can only say that maybe they had a trainee or something. This time we had four different waitresses and for us - all great, very friendly and attentive. I can honestly say that we have never gotten a poor meal or had bad service, but then again we always tip good. The restaurant has both booth and table seating plus stools and tables in the bar area. For lunch or light dinner we usually sit on stools at a table. I tried a clam chowder bread bowl for lunch this time and really enjoyed it - much better than a regular bowl of clam chowder. Fish and chips for dinners is almost a staple for us. This restaurant is one of the best!

“Very good food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2014

We went there for two lunches while we stayed in Astoria. Both days, they had really good lunch specials. It is a small restaurant but well worth a visit!

(I was on a diet and found several options which fit into my routine.)
