Great menu great food great service great atmosphere I’m not even sure how we found the place but it was a great place to go!
Food was great. From my kids food to my wife's fried shrimp to my shrimp and scallops stuffed lobster. All great
Amazing Amazing Amazing, loved !!!!! Food was delicious 😋
We had made a reservation on open table and was seated immediately upon Our service was poor and took a long time. Food was a saving grace as it was very delicious.
With reservations at 8:30(hardly rush hour), it took us an hour to get seated and have glasses of waters at the table. We asked if we could put in our order and was told she couldn’t handle that at the moment. Waitress was nice, food was fair but the experience was far from enjoyable.
I was an excellent experience. Everything was fresh!Great!!!
Food was very good. Wife had chicken wings and I had a mahi sandwich. Decor was waterfront casual. Service was friendly, fast and regular without being annoying. We had an early dinner 5:30 6:00 so noise level was low. Covid was keeping crowd down. Never had a bad neal or bad school at castaways.
There us a huge selection of sushi, seafood and land items! A kid's menu is also available. The lobster bisque us0 pretty good. The crab cake dinner wasp ok, had big chunks of crab but the filling was a bit dry, maybe because they were baked. Service was quick and professional, outstanding!
Great local place in a hidden away location on the water, (Do not let the short drive through the neighborhood deter you). Its great food in an indoor and outdoor setting. Big menu and everything we tried was delish. This was the freshest fish we found in Marathon. Also, great sushi and a full bar.
It was a lovely Covid experience. Great food. The snapper was awesome!! Love it. I will be back.
Awesome food and even better fish. I’ve been coming here for a while and everything is always on point. John and his staff are great!
We had great service! We brought our catch of the day in & the kitchen prepared it 3 different ways! My children (11 & 15) were impressed & so were my husband & I!
Awful place!!! Its says waterfront but it’s really on a super skinny canal with single wides across from you!!!! They sat us at a dirty table.. then cleared it without even wiping it down!!! In the midst of covid!!! Waitress was clueless.. screwed up our order totally. IT WAS NASTY!!!!
Sat outside due to Covid but they are not prepared to accommodate outside service- obviously hot but no fans work or air circulation- impossible to enjoy your meal in this heat at this restaurant
Absolutely outstanding sushi!
Yuki Tuna and miso soup and ginger salad and the Special Sashimi Dinner were top notch.
Many different seafood entrée and sandwich options that all looked spectacular.
Nice Selection of beers and cocktails
Going back tonight for the last night of our trip and we can’t wait.

Great food and service. Sushi was great , we will def go back next time we’re down there
Our server was AMAZING! Wish we could remember his name but he was awesome would definitely come back
Best food in the Marathon area during our recent vacation. We visited all the top rated restaurants and Castaways had the best food and service. Food recipe were well thought out and prepared. Don’t forget the Key Lime Pie.
Tracy was on top of things excellent service great food
The guy with the curly hair that is the host is AWFUL. Left a bad impression and he’s the first impression. Very disorganized and rude.
We went on yelp to find a restaurant in the Duck Key/Marathon area that would take reservations since the Rona has forced us to make adjustments but no issues with social distancing for us, we wore our masks as required. We were greeted when we got there and immediately seated for reservation. It was outside on the back dock in the shade so despite it being hot, we had drinks and water to cool us down lol. My Wife got a sushi roll and I got the crab cake for an appetizer both were delicious. Then for the entrees, we got the snapper and seared scallops and again both were delicious. We were doing a late celebration for our anniversary and our server was so nice and professional and wished us well and congrats. Would we come back here again, that would be a hell yeah!
Priced high for sure! Waitress was great! Very attentive! Food was just ok.
The food was really good. The service was friendly and good. The ambiance and location was about as poor as you can possibly get in the USA - very third world at best. The “waterfront” was a filthy canal facing Fla Keys slums of pit bulls, trailers, shanty’s and RVs. It was down right scary driving up to the place. Again, the food and service were really good. The setting is not something I would recommend unless you are just getting off an 8 hour fishing trip drunk as could be and can’t see what’s around you. Not a place for a family dinner. If you take the chef and staff and put them in a better location it’s a 4-5 star experience.
So hot outside. Invest in a few umbrellas for shade.
Totally awesome food ! Especially the sushi and hogfish ! Also had the calamari appetizer which was great ! We will make this place a must eat stop on all future stops
Lobster mac-n-cheese was a disappointment. The cheese sauce was quite processed- reminded me of boxed Veleveta man-n-cheese. Hogfish Mazatlan was better - maybe 4 stars.
Sushi was amazing. Server was super nice!
One of our favorite places and now we've discovered their great breakfast from 8-2pm! I recommend highly.
We got the hogfish and it was over cooked and super dry.
The food was amazing, but it took forever for our food to come out. It seemed as though the waiting staff was limited and over-utilized for their areas. Our waitress seemed very stressed trying to get everyone tended to. I would go back, but I would just prepare for it to be a long dinner.
Nice place. Will go back. AC could use a tune up.
Great ambiance and impressive menu, but 40 min for a drink and 1 1/2 hr wait for dinner puts a damper on the experience...
Very nice birthday dinner with family. Kathleen even surprised me with an amazing piece of key lime pie with a candle in it for me to make a wish! I loved it!
Lovely location by the water but the food was not good and expensive!
The food was good but not a great value for the money. We sat for 10 minutes before our server came, waited another 10 minutes for our drinks. It was not overly busy. We were let down given all the positive reviews.
Sat near the water and watched the manatees. Out of some seafood which was disappointing.
We have enjoyed Castaways restaurant for over 20 years and you will too.
