We ask for a table closest to the water (but breezes make it sometimes chillier than you expect). Varied menu prepared very well. We always enjoy the experience!

My wife and I Love to come here on a nice day in the summer, and sit at a table looking out over Lake Ontario. The food is good and reasonably priced, we especially like the calamari appetizer.

Another great dinner location on Irondequoit Bay. They have a small dock (almost hidden) across Lake Road in the bay. Food is excellent & reasonable. Good for couples and families. Awesome views of Lake Ontario with a huge patio dining area.

We went to a wedding reception at this place. Years ago I had been to dinner and did not realize how wonderful this place was. They had a pressure treated deck over the sand out back and had put up one white tent with the opening facing the lake. It was cold that nite so the parents of the bride... More

First time at this restaurant. I ordered French onion soup which was tasty, lots of onions as it should be. I had stuffed shrimp and steak, both tasted great, loved the stuffing. The steak was a good size. The bread rolls I got to say that I loved them, nice and hot and very tasty. The dining tables seemed a... More

The restaurant has a nice location, especially during the summer months when you can sit outside by the lake. The food is a bit pricey and not all that spectacular. Great place to go for drinks and a romantic setting. But I recommend you eat elsewhere.

Great great location. We have tried for dinner a few times over the years and some visits just for drinks on the deck for the great location and view. Every single visit was ended in disappointment. The food is awful, pre frozen nothing seems fresh, not even par with diner food, drinks are not good (especially bloody mary, don't bother),... More

We went up here for lunch yesterday. It was the first time that I had been here although my family had been here before. The view from the deck was spectacular. Our waitress was friendly and knowledgable. Overall, the service was solid. The lunch menu had something for everyone. Prices were reasonable. I ordered the fried haddock. It came with... More

Our server was dreadful, the food was worse, maybe a tie, don't go for the food. My "grouper" was fried haddock, served al dente with peaches, coconut, and pineapple plopped on top of it. Server never returned to ask how our food was, did give us the check.. Will not return.

After many tries to like Castaway's mainly do to the scenery looking over Lake Ontario, we walk away with a mediocre meal with not so great service at a high price. Sorry, don't like leaving bad reviews, but that has been our experience after several visits.
