Food, while slightly higher in price than is usual in this area, was excellent. Service was outstanding. While making my Open Table reservation online I made mention that we were celebrating my wife's birthday. She was greeted with a "Happy Birthday" comment by the hostess when we checked in, by the waiter when he first got to our table and by a Manager during the course of our meal. She also received, without our requesting it, a complimentary dessert. My wife had the filet mignon and I had the prime rib special. Both were delicious. We plan to go back and sample the Italian portion of their menu.

They make their own pasta
They make their own pasta which is a nice touch and everything we had in our party of five was good. The pennies ala vodka was especially tasty. They have Frank Sinatra themed entrees.

The bar and restaurant were
The bar and restaurant were well appointed. The food was very very good. The menu was fun and there are lots of things I would like to try. I willgo again in the near future. However, the service was quite slow and it took a long to to get our check.

Enjoyed a wonderful evening of dining at this great spot. The atmosphere, food, wait staff and bartenders are top notch. Will be back and recommend to friends. Our waiter, Nate, couldn't have been better, and always enjoy seeing Wade and John at the bar.

Our waiter was very knowlegable
Our waiter was very knowlegable but a bit chatty. Service was very good and the food was better. Slightly pricey but would return on our next visit to Myrtle Beach.

My friends and I ate dinner
My friends and I ate dinner here before our 1/2 marathon race. Since I had never been to Myrtle Beach I had to rely on the reviews on opentable and they did not disappoint. The ambience and decor is modern and clean. The food was awesome, we all had steaks that melted away. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

The first time we went to
The first time we went to Castano's was November 2012 when they first opened and had a wonderful time, great food and service. We decided to go there for our 45th Anniversary this year and were not disappointed. My wife had the crab stuffed flounder and I had the veal, both were excellent. The even gave us a complimentary dessert for our anniversary. We will be back at MB in October and will definitely go again.

Great new find
We took a chance on other reviews and booked a table for our last night in town. One of us got salmon and the other steak. Great food. We got a booth which is cozy and semi private but could see the water from our table. In the right weather the patio dining would be great. Probably best for couples, adult groups and business groups. If you want cheap burgers and fries dont go here. Its not cheap but offers a classy/casual atmosphere and was worth it. Great Sinatra music piped in with live guitar in bar area. Our only issue was the speaker at our table was going in and out which was distracting but they got it fixed promptly. Great atmosphere, service and food. Would recommend whether you like steak or seafood.

Wine Dinner 5/16/13
We (and guests from Williamsburg, VA)all agreed it was a fantastic meal with excellent wine pairings. Veal Carpaccio and the caper berries a real treat, salad with warm pancetta dressing, duck breast was succulent and enhanced by the Morello cherry demi-glaze, panna cotta with fresh fruit was a soft sweet ending to a flavorful meal. We appreciated being
welcomed so warmly when we arrived, having an excellent and attentive server, having wine pairings and wines explained
thoroughly by the charming representatives from the wine company, being able to thank the chef when he was introduced, live music at an acceptable level, and then being thanked for coming. A great
evening and near our condo on Wendy Hill Beach. See you again soon -

Great decor. Really enjoyed
Great decor. Really enjoyed the pics of Sinatra and the Italian ambiance. Since it was our first visit, and we were with friends from CT, we asked our server Shayla for some ideas. She was spot on with appetizers and entrees. The cheese bruschetta is outstanding and enough to share. Our meals ranged from a huge pork chop to veal dishes. All were well presented and delicious. Castano's is a great addition to Myrtle Beach. Can't wait to return and try the steak!

Great new restaurant!
First time dining at Castano's and we were delighted with the charming booth, the delicious food, the good service and the attention of the owner. Will definitely make it a regular stop on our trips to Myrtle Beach!

Dininfg at Castano"s
Great place and great food. Been four times and enjoyed each one. You will not be disappointed with anything. The steak I had was as good as they get. Try them
5/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great all around
Great food with lots of variety. I went with a party of 15 and each person's meal was delicious. A good pick for pasta, steak, or seafood lovers. Pricing was very fair with entrees $15-25.
5/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Just a little note to tell
Just a little note to tell you how much we enjoyed your hospitality the other night. Our waiter was so polite & patient with us. He went out of his way to take care of our needs. The whole staff was great. So thankful for letting us bring that birthday cake in & thank you all for singing. It made it a special night for a special son. We will be back again & again.
Thank you Thank you Thank you

What a Great Experience!
We dined for an occasion - a friend's birthday and the waiter Nate made it very special for all of us. The food was awesome and the staff could not have been more gracious. We will recommend this restaurant to everyone we know; it was a fantastic dining experience.

Thumbs up for Castano;s
Our favorite restaurant at North Myrtle Beach, Cagney's, closed, so we were looking for a nice place. We went to Castano's and were very pleased. Our server, Michael, was great, the onion soup is to die for. A wide selection of different types of food, even sushi. We'll definitely go back.
6/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wonderful Anniversary Dinner
Food is well prepared and the service is wonderful. Interesting items on the menu - not the usual, ho-hum entrees and apps. Flavors are well blended. Homemade pasta is good, but overcooked - and that is the only criticism. Wonderful experience overall.

Our dining experience at Castano's
Our dining experience at Castano's was an enjoyable one and we look forward to going back. The waiters were courteous and helpful with the choices from the appetizers, wines and entrees. The Brie appetizer was creamy and paired nicely with a Pinot Grigio and a red wine for starters. The steaks melted in your mouth and the whipped potatoes paired nicely with the green beans. One of us got lasagna and a side of meatballs and sausage and loved it : ) Our only two complaints would be that the green beans were a little cold and unless you've got a GPS from the Gov't, the place is a little tricky to find. Bon apetite!!!!!
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good food, well presented, at a very reasonable price. Inside decor is classy and view to lake and outdoors is great. Can accommodate seating for any size group. Owner is on site and very attentive.

Best Kept Secret in Barefoot Landin
Great food, great service! Friday Prime Rib special can't be beat.
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Castano's was a choice we had and we chose it...we wanted something with a little more seafood variety, but this did satisfy our craving for a good steak. I had the filet (Prohibition Barrel)...huge cut of meat and extremely tender...excellent. I asked for bearnaise sauce to accompany my steak, and for $4, I was expecting a bit more than I received. It seemed to be about a tablespoon and got a drizzle. The Ms. Crab soup was exceptional! There was a slight mixup wth our appetizer, but it was corrected quickly and dinner came out just as we had finished it...so no harm there. Overall, a great experience...great service, portions for sauces could be bigger based on offered price, but we. Would go to Castano's again.

One of the best NMB restaurants
Located in barefoot landing- very fresh food (including seafood). Great atmosphere. They cared about our experience there. Knowledgable servers.
Group of 6- 4 adults and 2 kids. We ordered the filet, onion soup, prosciutto wraps, Mahi Mahi special that was over risotto, and spaghetti. All great. Bread and olive oil dip brought was fresh and good as well.
4 adult entrees, 1 salad, 1 appetizer, 2 kids meals: $155
Great pick- would for sure go there again. You won't be disappointed here.
Owner was on premises.
7/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
We loved the decor and the private booths. The prime rib was pricey but huge - we ended up splitting it but there was a split charge. There are no choices for sides - it is what they have for the night - no substitutions unless you want to pay for extra side dishes. I really like a baked potato with my steak but that was an extra charge.
7/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was completely blown away
I was completely blown away by how great their sushi was. They had one of the largest selections of sushi I have seen anywhere around in this area and it was outstanding. I will definitely be back.
7/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for a nice family dinner
The food was amazing. We had a variety of steaks , seafood and even sushi and everything came out perfectly cooked. Stefanie was an amazing server.

The sushi was excellent. Our server seemed to be just a little distracted perhaps - water glasses went empty for a bit and there was a delay on bread refill but otherwise the meal was great.

Great service. Wonderful food. Recommend the turtle cheesecake for dessert.

Highlight of our Myrtle Beach trip
We had tickets for Good Vibrations at the Carolina Opry (which was an awesome show), and we were looking for a nearby restaurant for the 5 of us. We lucked out and found Castano's, right on the lake at Barefoot Landing.
We ate outside and the view and atmosphere were outstanding. our waiter (Marc) was a service professional and everyone loved the food.
Only 5 minutes from the Carolina Opry on RT. 17 - Castano's is a great compliment to a great show.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our experience far exceeded my expectations. The atmosphere was upscale. The quality and quantity of food was excellent for the price. Sushi selection and quality and presentation was exceptional.
We will definitely make it a regular on our dining list.
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, poor service
Food was dynamic from special sushi appetizers to Italian plates. Service though was less than equal. Ordered 2 glasses of same wine and 1 came a full inch less filled than the other.. Awkward for an upscale Italian restaurant. Dining service in general was slow. We had a party of 8, but the restaurant was only half full. We would recommend this restaurant and may go again simply because the taste was quality-maybe the service will be better.
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went here because we could make a reservation the food was good. Great crab cakes. Service was a little slow I watched other waiters who were hustling but ours was not very attentive. Had to ask for a drink refill. Would have expected him to notice I was out of drink and refilled the glass without asking. We ate outside and it was great for us to talk and enjoy the evening.
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent service - attentive, but not overbearing. Timing of appetizer, wine , meat was perfect.

Been coming to Myrtle Beach
Been coming to Myrtle Beach for years and this was by far our favorite place to eat. The food and service was outstanding and when you have 6 people in your party and all of them say this was great, that speaks volumes. A must "go to" place if you're in Myrtle Beach. We will be returning before we head home.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
In the business, was head bartender at Marriott for 5 years, opened many eateries and bars in NMB, plus worked at North Beach for year. Now recommending Castano's to many locals and industry people. I worked with Jess your bartender before, a great lady and great bartender, good find! Looking for a new place to watch NFL after 5 years of going to Mollies, you need to open for brunch on sunday, have NFL specials and the ticket, could be great extra income if catches on.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love this place.
This is our fifth time at Castanos. Every thing was just perfect. Our waiter, Michael, is simply the best. Highly recommend this Resturant to all. The owners take the time to stop at your table to ensure all is well. Hope you enjoy it has much as we do!

You Must Try the Meatballs
This was my second experience at Castano's. The ambience is nice, the waitstaff are very friendly and accommodating. I had the spaghetti and meatballs and it was excellent. Best meatballs I have ever tasted and the spaghetti sauce was perfect. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves Italian food.

We had the sushi and it was delicious. Great sushi at an Italian Steakhouse, who would have known, we will be back.
9/3/2013 5:00:00 PM
This restaurant serves great appetizers and speciaity drinks. My dish was veal and it was served lukewarm but overall the taste was good. Their mojitos are delicious and so is there wrapped in proscuito appetizer. We would go again and possibly try their lunch menu. A little pricey.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Like a Hackensack experience
We love coming to castanos...friendly staff...good food. And you speak New Jersey English Only ting is sometimes music a little to loud..but everything still great
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful place to eat
So many varieties of sushi, and they are great. It is a wonderful restaurant for couples to visit for a nice romantic dinner.

We attended the September Wine Dinner At Costano's. To say we LOVED it would be an understatement!! First...beautiful place, inside and out! Amazing, excellent food prepared to perfection and looking beautiful on the plate!! Extremely well attended by the entire staff, very friendly and happy to assist in any way! Also very knowledgeable on any menu questions. The owner made time to sit down at the wine dinner where 12 strangers were seated together.....very nice, very calm and friendly. The man who did the wine presentation was awesome as well....like an old friend!!
There is no way we could say enough wonderful things about Costano's Italian Steakhouse!! We cannot wait to visit again!! #1 hands down!! GREATLY EXCEEDED our hopes!!!!
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food, service, and atmosphere were all great! We will go back!!

Great place . Very good food and service with decor to match. This was off season and still a little busy... Keep up the good work...

Food was good.
Servers were nice, but slow. I think they didn't have enough servers for the crowd.

service was outstanding as usual...my group blended with other customers and we had a ball....

We held our retirement party
We held our retirement party there with 31 people; the event was flawless! Nate, Michael, and our other two wait staff people were amazing and the food was delicious. I would recommend this place for any Christmas Party, Birthday Party or any other occasion for groups - they are simply the best!
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fabulous service, food, and ambiance. Will be sure to make this a regular venue to visit for all occasions.
