We were early birds on a Saturday for dinner. The restaurant filled up while we were there. The draft beer selection is large, though they were out of my first choice. We started with calamari, which was dreadful. The presentation of thick slices of calamari in bland breading sitting in a pool of oil could not be saved by an... More

Our group of four loved this place. It's off the beat and path but the locals know where it is. Food was fresh and excellent. Fabulous tropical beverages, and the staff is super friendly. Will definitely dine here again and would recommend this establishment.

Great lively atmosphere! Eat in or out your choice. Both are special. Service is always great and the menu is huge and always adding new plates. Prices very reasonable and setting on the water with boats attached is wonderful. Fun to get to and once you find it they have a golf cart shuttle to take you from parking to... More

After speaking to a local charter boat captain, I've had high hopes for this restaurant. Hearing local mahi mahi and African pompano was being delivered regularly to the establishment definitely set high expectations. Upon arrival it was a very cute atmosphere with a shuttle bus driver carting my father and I to the hostess setting the mood for the evening.... More

Sushi bar seemed grubby....overall seemed unclean. Look, lots of good reviews... so maybe I'm wrong....but after driving past trailer parks and hidden behind a boat launch, we ate very light and booked out. Best left for locals....eeeessshhhh!

It was a good place. My husband loved the shrimp po boy. I had a very good blackened hog fish. His po boy was big. my portion of fish was a bit on the small side, but was very tasty. The honey buns were very interesting. My son loved that they had honey on the table and ate way too... More

We sat at a table next to the water. I felt like I was in Keys paradise. Food was excellent. I ordered crab cakes, they were all crab, just enough filler to hold them together. My husband ordered beer batter seafood platter. It had a wonderful light tempura batter and great flavor but unfortunately it had very little seafood, mostly... More

Just arrived in Marathon for the month and it was time to relax with friends and have refreshments. The shrimp Reuben was the best ever, cooked to perfection and great craft beers. Good outside seating. Fun time with other locals. A little off the beaten bath but really good.

This was our second trip to the Keys and we had to stop st Castaways again! This is not a fancy place. There is a good selection of draft beers. The food is amazing! I had snapper with Mazatlan sauce and it is one of the most delicious things I have ever had! My husband had the tuna Island style... More
