Since Castaways has been taken over by new owners and new management, the place has absolutely become my favorite on Ft. Myers Beach!! The FOOD is fantastic (new menu) and the atmosphere is lighter and so much fun. Live entertainment keeps the crowd happy and dancing on the ample dance floor. Also the BEST bartenders in town! I highly recommend this venue on South Ft. Myers Beach!!! It's a MUST!!!

The ahi tuna appetizer was wonderful and the ahi tuna blt tops. Our server kept a constant eye on us. A great experience, with locals, not just a touristy trap. Great to meet Michael the new chef from Wisconsin. Looking forward to going back.

We went last night for cocktails and the band, Cocktails were OK and the band we could dance to. Decided to go back tonight to catch the basketball game and have a bite. We are very sorry that we did.
The Clam Chowder was thin and barely had a clam or potato in it. We should have been warned. Asked about the pizza and we were assured that it was amazing. IT WAS NOT! Tasteless and cardboardlike absolutely horrible. We are both back at the condo in pain!
There are so many restaurants to eat at on the island. Just to add to the evening.. we watched the lazy waitress kick a spoon across the floor back to the kitchen because she was too lazy to lean over and pick it up! Don't waste your money!
