We stopped in for lunch and really enjoyed the food. Our food was delicious.The lunch special had generous portions. My husband ordered a hot dog and fries and was pleased with his order also. We will be back!

Their specials are really good, as are breakfasts. It's good value for money too, especially on the gyros plates, and Greek salads. The wait staff are all nice warm folks who will do all they can to please.

I am a local and eat here often. The food is great and the people very friendly. Get there before 12 as the place will be full -- of locals and workers.

Castaway is right off the island of Ocean Isle, so if you want to get the most time at the beach: this is the perfect option! Food is pretty good and is served in large portions. The only downside was the styrofoam plates, but that's minor.

This place is not fancy, but if you are looking for decent food at a good price while at the beach this is the place to go. Basic menu of sandwiches and breakfast items. Plentiful servings, too.

First time eating there. Staff was friendly, food was average, but the coffee taste like they dragged the beans through the water. Very Weak! Was confused about the no check thing, as I waited for 15 mins before the staff said pay at the register. Won't be back until they put some coffee in the water.

There weren't many breakfast options in December so we were happy to find the Castaway Grill. The food was good and affordable. The service was good although confusing if you aren't a local because they don't bring a check. You go to the cashier with your table number instead.

The owners of the business are very customer friendly. The chicken that came on my salad was so tough and fatty I couldn't eat it.

Very slow service and you have to wait a long time for drink refills. We ate in but they devoted their attention much more to call in orders or take out and ignored those in the restaurant even though it was not crowded at all. The servers also man the cash register and the poor service is affecting whether people... More
