We have been going to Castaways for years. It is definitely off the beaten path and at first glance might seem a bit "off the grid" but we just love it. Good eats. Great beer selection. Wait staff have always been attentive and fun. At first glance you might have second thoughts.....its a little rough on the eyes, but give... More

I had the hogfish stuffed with shrimp and scallops and my BFF had the lionfish cooked wreckdiver style. They were both fantastic and easily the best dinner so far on our Florida Keys vacation. The honey buns were great and the service (hey Nicole!!!) was fantastic! Highly recommend! Also, don't feel the need to dress up, it's not that type... More

Stopped here on my way to the airport via a suggestion from our dive shop and I am happy I did. I was looking for fresh lion fish and they delivered! I had the infamous "king of the jungle" sushi roll and was thoroughly impressed. Will be back next time we travel to the keys.

Castaway's has a super creative Sushi Chef who was able to create unique and wonderful surprises for us. If you are looking to try new and unusual combinations this is the place for you! We especially liked the torched wahoo. The menu is full of the traditional rolls and tons of cooked seafood and steak items. Everyone is able to... More

Loved this restaurant! The sushi was delicious and fresh. They had a great selection of beer on tap being served by an absolutely fun and personable bartender named Vicki. Great atmosphere and you could tell that this place is a favorite amoung the locals.

When you arrive at Castaways you feel that you are in the wrong place...probably somebody's not so neat back yard. But the sign says Castaways..even though it;s attached to a brick wall with peeling paint! The food is great and at least several of the waitstaff are lots of fun. You can dine literally, in the back yard, or along... More

Service was great, sushi was good, honey bun rolls were great. Hidden off the main road and was not super busy when we got there.
