    We're in the tropics and we dress for summer. The air conditioning is too cold and blows right on the tables. They need to put up directionals so that the air blows up towards the ceiling and the air in the room is a nice temperature without blowing on the patrons. I went back out to my car to get a beach towel to cover myself while I ate.

    The place is very poor looking, no ambiance, waitresses are in swim suit shorts and stained t-shirts and the food is $35-50 a plate for dinner? No class at all. And there was a nail sticking into my husband's leg from his broken-down chair! Front hosts were rude and unprofessional. Parking is a nighmare (we parked in front of a nasty dumpster while the cars in back of us fought for purchase in the nasty "lot"). And food just wasn't great great. This is a place, one of the few in the Keys, that I would NOT recommend. Overpriced, horrible ambiance. There are so many better restaurants in the Keys, don't waste your money here.

    Sat outside along the water. Nice, but there was no breeze as they have the fans primarily on the tables along the restaurant wall as opposed to those next to the dock. So we were sweltering! Then, when the food came, the flies came like crazy and when there is no fan to blow them away, you sit swatting at flies the entire time you eat. Food was delicious and the waitress Jen was wonderful. They don’t have Mac and cheese on the kids menu so that might be something they could incorporate as they already have lobster Mac & cheese on the menu. My daughter ordered mac & cheese, no lobster, and we were charged $20. Seemed exorbitant. However it was a large amount of Mac & cheese.

    We took a drive down from Key Largo and it was absolutely worth it! Our server Brian answered all of our questions and gave us a super thorough tour of the large menu. Get the spicy Mae roll, you won’t be disappointed! Chef Bo came out and said hi, he was super nice and it just added to the overall great experience. Fun, relaxed keys atmosphere with amazing food and unique finds. 10/10 would recommend and make the drive again.

    Been going to the castaway since the mid 70’s seen a lot of changes but the food is still excellent. Lobster Bisque was delicious as was the Fried Shrimp.. if there was a negative the Salad plate was a little small… not the salad quantity mind you just the playe it was on.. make a reservation

    When planning our trip to the Florida Keys I knew this was one of the places i wanted to eat at. I was not disappointed. From the staff that seated us to our server, it was all excellent. The food was outstanding. I would not hesitate to eat here again if we are ever in the Keys. Thanks for making our meal special.
