The food here is good and we really like that they have a salad bar. Only downside is we think it is kind of pricey for what you get but that's normal in a touristy location. Will be back one day I'm sure.

We headed over and ordered drinks from their specialty drink menu. The best drink was inside a fresh pineapple. That thing was the bomb! Next time I would like to order food here. Nice, casual atmosphere for a beach town.

We had this on our list of places to try in Port A based on reviews, found it to be fairly average on both food quality and service. The kids meal prices were excessive at $9.

We have never been to Port Aransas before and our first night we really had no idea where to dine; so happy we found Castaways! Friendly ambiance, unpretentious. Had a couple of kids in tow. Responsive, efficient waiter Steve(follow his recommendations, superb), excellent, fresh fish. Would come again!

We eat at Castaways every year we visit, the seafood is great and the hamburgers are awesome. It is a must visit if you go to the island.

I ordered the fried white fish. It was good and well priced. Glad we have this establishment as a choice in port... More

Visiting Port A and was hoping to find a place with good, fresh sea food. We found it! We were here after the lunch crowd, so not crowded at all. Our waiter, Able, was great! My husband ordered the Ultimate Combo, which included a soft shell crab, along with oysters, shrimp, and local fish. I got the Shrimp Lovers platter... More
