Never have had a bad meal here, menu descriptions very accurate. Spot on service. Cost for 4 without drinks $100 ,,,,but you get what is described here. This place is miles beyond nearby " Lazy Days South"

Stopped in at Castaway for dinner and had an amazing time. Our server, Kathleen, was absolutely delightful, attentive and fun. She definitely made our experience memorable.
