    We had high hopes based on reviews. They were out of several menu items (crab cakes, conch fritters for sample). The food we ended up getting was very mediocre. I had booked this for my husband’s 70th birthday dinner - quite disappointed.

    Last night in Marathon so we decided on a goto for dinner. Castaway fits the bill every time. Great service and food and a quiet night for the restaurant. Made a reservation but we’re able to walk right in. Back in a few weeks.

    This was my grandmas 99th birthday!!! Large party, waitress went out of her way and decorated the table before our arrival with decorations we dropped off earlier. Very memorable night, owner came and made us feel at home. Would give 10 stars if I could!!! Such a memorable experience with great unique and local menu items!

    Poor value for the portion received. Avg. seafood entrée is $45. I ordered Grouper Oscar style and the piece of fish was so small. Oscar style included 4 asparagus and hardly and crab meat on top for an extra fee. Small salad -premade in metal bowl and an undercooked baked potato. Good news, we did see a Manatee off the dock Would not return

    Awesome food, we’ve also seen a manatee while having food outside. They’re now testing Tuesday opening, so there was a bit of rush - but nothing too impactful.

    Great food, several had sushi which they enjoyed. Parking is a pain, so you may have to drop off your people and then walk some back to the restaurant. Well worth it. Inside is better in my opion.

    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.
