Waiter was very friendly although the service was a bit slow. Maybe just on island time. The food was tasty but felt it was very overpriced.

The best restaurant and bar on the island! This place will cook your catch for you while you enjoy and ice cold margarita after a long day of fishing in the gulf! Don't pass this place up!

Castaways is always a must whenever we come to Port Aransas. The old fisherman's atmosphere is classic, and the calamari is awesome! Service could be a little but more quick but I understand that it's a busy restaurant. Overall a great eat!

Food was good but the service was terrible. It took over an hour to get our food and waitress didn't even apologize from the wait. We were going to leave if it hadn't showed up in a few minutes. Food was good just bad service.

Strike one- my daughter ordered a Sprite. What she received tasted like club soda. It certainly was not a Sprite Strike two - we ordered hush puppies as an appetizer to share. The menu stated that it was 8 hush puppies. This worked well since...More
