We sat outside on a nice evening during spring break. The coconut shrimp appetizer was the best thing I tried. I had the snapper and shrimp for dinner, it was well cooked but very poorly seasoned. Salt and butter did little for the flavor. The kids had sliders and liked them. My wife had a burger. Just so so.

I've been coming to Castaways for 20 years. It gets better every time. Shrimp was great. Chocolate pie and coffee was a great way to end the evening.

We were looking for decent local seafood place with vegetarian options for my teenager. Great margaritas and bloody marys at happy hour. Good menu selection and we were all pleased with what we ate. A little pricey but we did have appetizers and alcohol. Was in line though for most seafood places. Would definitely go back.

Kind of rustic and casual comfortable. Good server who offered a sample of a craft beer they were offering. The burgers and onion rings were very good - good buns and good burgers.
