About the Restaurant
The Castaway was originally built in 1951. Known for many years as a place to get beer and also shrimp steamed in beer. After all, in 1951 there were many shrimp boats parked a stones throw from the restaurant. If you never met a shrimper, you probably don’t know, but them boys can drink some beer.
In 1999 John and Arlene sailed into Marathon, Florida ending a voyage that began in Los Angeles. Hence they bought the restaurant and began a new adventure. Oh yeah, they also got married that year, quit their jobs, sailed the boat and also moved to the fabulous Florida Keys.
Now 16 years later (John looks it but Arlene doesn’t) The Castaway is busy again but with an expanded menu featuring all the S’s. Seafood, Steaks, Sushi, and of course Spirits and as of today now serving 52 BEERS ON TAP. In addition to seating indoor there is outdoor on the water seating. Service includes lunch and also dinner 7 days a week.
