The Castaway was originally built in 1951 and known for many years as a place to get beer and shrimp steamed in beer.  After all, in 1951 there were many shrimp boats parked a stones throw from the restaurant and if you never met a shrimper, the you probably don’t know it but them boys can drink some beer. 

In 1999 John and Arlene sailed into Marathon, Florida ending a voyage that began in Los Angeles.  They bought the restaurant and began a new adventure, oh yeah, they also got married that year, quit their jobs, sailed the boat and 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

43 BEERS ON TAP.  Seating is indoor and outdoor on the water and service includes lunch and dinner 7 days a week.
