A moonless evening, a large truck blocking our way and resulting confusing GPS directions but we finally found Castaway (after opting for Burdens and finding a 1 1/2 hour wait). It was good but not great.

Visited this very casual restaurant specifically for sushi and had the most wonderful meal of our vacation. The sushi chef is very creative and accommodating. Ask him to make you a special creation; you won't be sorry!

Another Happy Hour spot to experience the locals. Average foods, but interesting craft beers on tap. Great deal on steamed shrimp. Just watching the local characters is worth a visit.

Had the broiled Florida lobster tail which was good. Husband had a fried combination with most items on it good but a few just OK. Service was very good. Fun atmosphere and a menu that has something for everyone.
