    Have been wanting to try the lion fish for a while it wasn’t as fresh and tasty as I thought maybe it’s not the right season for it not sure. The lobster Mac n cheese was amazing!

    When making our reservation through Open Table, it was asked if there were any special requests. I asked if we could be seated in a booth; there are only a few booths in Castaway so I was hoping this request would be granted. When we arrived to Castaway the young man promptly asked for our name and immediately took us to our booth...YAY! He was very courteous and friendly. The couple we came with had never been here before, and when we left said that this was definitely a Keys experience and they would recommend it to others. Our server, Tammy, was excellent. She answered all our questions before we actually asked them. Kudos!! We never had to wonder "where's our server" either. Usually when it comes to getting the check, there's a lag of time. No lag time! My only negative comment: I ordered two things from the sushi menu, one of which was a spicy tuna item. It really wasn't all that spicy and not much tuna. However, the other item was a lobster sushi item...plenty of lobster. All in all, a positive dining experience. I might add; my husband and I have been here before (we're locals) and it's always been a positive experience.

    I thought that the whole Lionfish appetizer was a rip-off. The fish was small and there was hardly any meat on it. It was not worth $18. On the other hand the snapper BLT was delicious and well worth $18.

    We had fabulous service from Kelsey both nights we came! We brought our fresh catch in and they did a fantastic job of not overcooking the fish. The Oscar style was the best! We definitely recommend eating at this place while you’re in town!

    Food is ok, server was ok, the biggest problem we had was getting salad and 5 minutes later getting our main entree, we did not enjoy our dinner, all they want is to feed you quickly and turn the table to another customer, thank you for ruining our dinner. Also they claimed that we did not even show up to our reservation, I had to send copy of the charge to Open Table to show that we did not miss our reservation!

    The atmosphere is dated and the service was terrible. The host was extremely hostile towards us trying to seat our small child at the end of the table. I have never been to a restaurant that didn’t allow a chair for a child to sit in. The waitress has a sour attitude and the food was nothing to brag about. Don’t waste your time here.

    We went here twice on our trip of 4 days if that says anything. Our daughters were doing a fried shrimp competition for every restaurant we went to and Castaways came in first. We also did a key lime pie competition and it came in second. I enjoyed “wreck diver style” on some Mahi Mahi and Cobia on the visits respectfully. Definitely recommend. Does get a little hot so maybe sit inside depending on how you like the warmth.
