Castaway's has a super creative Sushi Chef who was able to create unique and wonderful surprises for us. If you are looking to try new and unusual combinations this is the place for you!

Loved this restaurant! The sushi was delicious and fresh. They had a great selection of beer on tap being served by an absolutely fun and personable bartender named Vicki. Great atmosphere and you could tell that this place is a favorite amoung the locals.

When you arrive at Castaways you feel that you are in the wrong place...probably somebody's not so neat back yard. But the sign says Castaways..even though it;s attached to a brick wall with peeling paint! The food is great and at least several of the waitstaff are lots of fun. You can dine literally, in the back yard, or along... More

Service was great, sushi was good, honey bun rolls were great. Hidden off the main road and was not super busy when we got there.

This was a great place! Huge selection of beer on tap, and really good menu choices. The Grouper dinner was outstanding! Beth was our waitress and was very friendly and knowledgeable! Off the beaten path, and well worth it!

I had grouper (coconut fried) and wife had stone crabs. Both dishes were just okay; nothing special. We also tried lobster bisque and it was mediocre.

I am sorry that you didn't find the meals to be more satisfying. I personally spearfish at depths in excess of 200 feet to bring fresh fish including grouper to the table. Stone crab are also a locally harvested product so both of your meals were actually caught on a boat that docks within a couple of hundred feet maximum... More
