Great casual vibe at the Castaway. Lots of large parties made it a bit loud, but that’s to be expected in this bar-friendly atmosphere. The sushi was incredibly fresh and the desserts were fabulous. I’d definitely recommend for families or a large gathering of friends.
Great experience. Nicolas was Great. Shrimp and Grits were the best
Great atmosphere. The servers were amazing and the food is to die for especially the king of the jungle role. I never knew lionfish taste so good.
Food was fair, not great. Drinks were very slow to arrive and server and manager refused to take back a glass of wine not to our liking. Generally poor attitude from server which made our evening somewhat uncomfortable. Not our first time at Castaways but maybe out last.
Management is in dire need of an Above And Beyond type customer service training course! With so much competition, if ANYTHING is unsatisfactory with a meal item -then it should be a) comped, b) retaken to something customer wants & c) delivered with an apology. Period. Full stop. Because...
Negative word of mouth spreads like mold-And FAST!
If something tastes horrible to the customer, don’t make customer pay for it AND tell them to buy something else THEN return to tell them they wished their table had never been assigned to her because her shift as almost done!
We are all locals for decades. The management, last year has been horrific!
Don't go to CASTAWAYS iN Marathon, FL .
Food was great, service was outstanding. Andre was awesome.
Great service from the time we were greeted by the host till we were done with after dinner drinks. The wreck diver style fish is one of a kind! Highly recommend!!!
Great seafood with very friendly service. Had fish and scallops with sauce which was fantastic. Recommend place to eat in the Keys.
Great food, atmosphere and service. Cathy was hands down one of the best servers we have ever had anywhere. She took the time to write each of our names down and then used our names when talking to us the rest of the evening. Wonderful experience.
Sushi was good, so go for that if you have the time. Service was terrible, and clear the servers and kitchen staff are overworked and so didn’t hold that against them. It took 75 minutes to take our order after being seated and an extraordinarily long time after to receive our food and drinks. Crab cakes were without crab. We debated at our table whether the kitchen mistook the order for vegetarian crab cakes, but decided not given there were a very few random slivers of crab mixed in with the 98% filler. We were also charged for food we didn’t order, but the owner insisted we try because it was already - and mistakenly - made. We’ve dined here before and had good experiences, and so we’ll try again but not for a long time.
We were greeted by a friendly host who was thoughtful enough to offer us outdoor seating by the marina when another booking cancelled. The staff was friendly, the food was delicious and the view by the water at sunset was perfect. This was the best service we’ve had so far!
Sushi was very generous and fresh. Great beer selection. They were out of many menu items. The night we went they were very understaffed.
Cool super casual spot for a Keys dinner. We had drinks at the bar, bartender Joe was awesome. Food was great. It’s a bit of a hole in the wall place but good food and service. Oysters and fish dishes were excellent.
Service was exceptional, food was on point!
We went on our last night of our annual family vacation in the Keys to celebrate my daughter-in-laws birthday dinner. It was clearly a very busy night, but you couldn’t tell based on the exceptional service! Kathleen took her time with us, even as I changed my order, and took us through her favorites on the menu, called us all by our first names, and treated my daughter to an amazing birthday song and cake with candles.
Can’t wait to return - what an awesome last night.
First of all, made the reservation through open table and that part was fantastic. Then we arrived at the restaurant 10 minutes prior to our reservation time. When we met the hostess, if you want to call her that, she said our table wasn’t quite ready and we could wait in the bar and they would text when the table was available. We waited inside the restaurant at the bar and watched several people pull up in cars with a group of 5 people and they immediately got seated. Then a larger group showed of about 12 people and they were seated immediately. A group of two were seated and all the while we are waiting. There were two 6tops sitting empty during our 25 minute wait. When I stopped the “hostess” and asked her what was taking so long she explained that since we only had 3 people, we could not be seated at a 6 top. Well fast forward another 10 minutes and we get seated at a 6 top booth. The real kicker was that the very table I asked her about and she explained that she could not sit a 3 person group at she sat a party of 2 with a toddler!!!!!
This has to be the most unorganized restaurant in the Keys!!! This will be 2 hours of my life that I will never get back!!!
Wait staff was stressed beyond belief and it took at least 20 minutes to get our check!!! Never seen a restaurant that didn’t want to get paid.. Save your money and time and try anywhere else in all of the Keys!!!
Kathleen our server was AMAZING! She was friendly and engaging. Best service we have had in a long time. Thank you Kathleen.
Amazing sushi, great food and service, and a cool decor.
Good food with excellent service provided by Genelle.
It was just okay. Felt a bit sticky and dirty at our outside table. Wait staff super friendly.
Our server - Lori - was outstanding. Great recommendation on food selection. The food was amazing. Highly recommend!
Great food and drinks. They are accommodating to large groups too.
We went while on vacation in the Keys. I gave it a 5 for ambiance, not because it was in any way elegant, but it was quirky and very interesting. We were fascinated by the looping video of the owner’s spearfishing exploits. The sushi was excellent and all of the entree dishes we had were great. Short but good wine list and great beer and drink menu. Our waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable. We enjoyed the experience and the food a great deal!
Charlotte was amazing and super friendly
Great dinner spot in the keys. Not fancy but, your are in the keys. Food is excellent& service very good.
The seafood is fresh and wonderfully prepared. I would have enjoyed a wider variety of side dishes, but the entrees are the stars of the show here and they shine.
Not what we were lead to believe. Big disappointment. Way over priced.
We took our fresh catch in to be prepared, Andre took care of everything! It was delicious! Mahi 5 different ways!!
Our server Nick made our dining experience exceptional. Food was amazing. Lots to choose from. Good pour on the wine. Highly recommend Castaway! Make reservations if you want to be outside.
Kathleen was the absolute best!!!! She made the entire experience awesome. We had a long wait, but she was extremely energetic, kind, funny and overall the best. We will absolutely be back because of her!
If you like crab Rangoon, you really should try it. It was the best I have ever had in my life, and that is saying something. All of the food was wonderful though, and the drinks delicious.
Great food and wonderful service from our server, Kathleen!
We enjoyed some raw oysters, a rare Bison cheeseburger and the Lobster Mac n Cheese. Service was excellent!
Always great food and service!
The menu is huge and they prepared per our requests! There are almost too many items on the menu to choose from, but will solve this dilemma by going back again. All of our our food was amazing!
Terrific sushi and friendly service!
Our waitress Kathleen Fontes was the best she is 5 plus stars all day long. She made the experience for us. Our food was amazing. We will be back before our vacation comes to an end.
Another amazing evening at Castaway. Kathleen was our server and she was amazing as always. The other staff including Tami and Janell and Nick came to check up on us when Kathleen was busy with other tables. Recommended as always!
Neat hole in the wall ambiance and vibe but food just so so and over priced for the value.
Nice and fun. The whole restaurant seems to have a great atmosphere no matter where you sit. Very hard to just walkup and get a table for waterfront so I guess booking a reservation outdoor is a better option in the future!
