Just arrived in Marathon for the month and it was time to relax with friends and have refreshments. The shrimp Reuben was the best ever, cooked to perfection and great craft beers. Good outside seating. Fun time with other locals. A little off the beaten bath but really good.

This was our second trip to the Keys and we had to stop st Castaways again! This is not a fancy place. There is a good selection of draft beers. The food is amazing! I had snapper with Mazatlan sauce and it is one of the most delicious things I have ever had! My husband had the tuna Island style... More

The atmosphere is informal and laid back with indoor and outdoor seating near the water. The staff is friendly, attentive, and courteous. Restrooms are clean. The extensive menu includes sushi and seafood as well as a great list of beers and cocktails. Definitely worth a visit.

We have enjoyed Castaways for years. Then, last year, every aspect was terrible both times we went there. We heard the management is addressing the poor service and food. So, we tried it again. Great news. The service was very good and we both enjoyed our dinners. Hats off to the management for making a difference. Today we talked to... More

The food was good, but we were surprised at how expensive it was. The ambience wasn't great. They had a good beer list! We just didn't stay long because we didn't feel all that comfortable!

We had an absolutely great dinner here during our recent trip to Marathon. The beer steamed shrimp was flavorful, and we had a great flight of craft beer for a reasonable price. we returned here for dinner a couple of nights later, and had some of the best sushi we have had anywhere. All in all, it was a great... More

Standard Keys place, vibrantly painted exterior nice large bar, and lots of locals to meet. There were two of is, one having the ceviche and I had conch chowder and crab cakes. The two bartenders were attentive and helpful. Saw some sushi go by and it looked good too. We had a very tasty fresh lunch, well prepared. It's worth... More
