This restaurant is very good. Delicious and amazing place. The restaurant is right on the water. Looks like you are on a cruise.

We went for dinner. I ordered the seafood pasta which was the best meal I had on the island. It was a perfect portion, very tasty and perfectly spiced. It had a little kick. I would definitely go back.

This was a great place to refuel after a day on the beach at Fire Island. It is right in the middle of the village. It has a real beachy vibe, multiple TV's, and beach bum types hanging out at the bar. I had the clams on a half-shelf, oysters Rockefeller, and fish & chips. Everything was very good. The... More

I have sampled their food and it was very nice. The tacos on Wednesday are more of an appetizer style (FYI). The bartender was incredibly gracious and friendly. Alone, he would be reason enough to return. Be sure to stop by and enjoy the food and the friendly and welcoming vibe.

We had dinner here on our first night. My boyfriend ordered a steak and it was a little chewy and undercooked. I had seafood fra diavolo with pasta which was good but very, very hot! I think this place is more of a bar than a place for dinner, but the waitress was very sweet. She said it was her... More

My son and I went in for a drink while our wives shopped in Ocean Beach. We had Rocket Fuel which is not included on the Happy Hour Menu. The drink was excellent. They had clams and Oysters on special which were very delicious. Great deal and we will go again.

Went here on a weekday, both the place and the bar tender were very welcoming. Stop in to get out of the heat and have a drink with my wife. The drinks were well prepared and tasty. I recommend the place, I think you will enjoy.

After arriving in Ocean Beach for the first time we really wanted a light snack and a beer. Castaway is around the corner from our hotel so when we saw $1.50 oysters on the chalkboard we were sold. The place was empty so we grabbed a seat by the open doors. Our waiter came quickly and we placed an order... More
