We just ate at Castaways. All three of us ordered the brisket tacos. They were recommended by the waitress. They were outstanding!!!! Would definitely order them again. Nice view of the river also.

We have been here a couple of times. Both times the service has been slow. They have good food (burgers, sandwiches, apps, etc). But the service needs to improve if we intend to come back.

This was one of the few restaurants open on a Sunday night, so we stopped in. The decor is very tired, but the food was great. The sandwiches are huge and the home made waffle chips are delicious. Would highly recommend!
