    Our server was Bryan. He was great in assisting us with our first visit. The food was wonderful and the service was amazing. We barely had time to consider what we had ordered before our appetizer was on the table, and had barely started it when our food arrived.

    The Food and the service at Castaway was excellent. Chef Beau even came out and talked to us. Our server Michelle was very friendly and attentive. My husband had The Hog fish with the shrimp & scallop stuffing topper, and I had the lobster enchiladas everything was delicious. We will definitely return again and again.

    Our dinners were great—oysters and calamari apps, grouper and grilled hogfish platters=SO tasty! And Ann, our server, took great care of us, pacing the arrivals of each course perfectly. But make reservations, or you’ll wait for a table. The line forms before 6pm.

    Lobster enchiladas were way over cooked and dry as well as my child’s fish sticks. Gator bites are a bad version of popcorn chicken. Lion fish is also overrated the way they suggested. Basically a overlying lemon flavor and you don’t taste the flavor of the fish. Overall disappointed. For the price I would never go back cause of the lack of quality food. Service was nice and our server was good. Guy Fieri doesn’t know what good food is it seems. Fourth restaurant I’ve tried that he’s been at and only one was good. And that’s in Hawaii.

    We sat waterfront. A delay in getting a server was due to bringing drinks from the bar to the table and the servers not knowing we had not ordered. Excellent meal. Try the lion fish, an invasive sweet white fish. Only way to catch is by spear. One of our best meals in the Keys. And we’ve been there twice.

    This place was amazing! By far the best and freshest sushi I have ever eaten! We also had the swordfish which was caught that morning and was “melt in your mouth” amazing! The only downfall is that I live 11 hours away or I would come here everyday!
