Castaways Seafood & Grill
Castaway’s Seafood and Grill is a testament to resilience and culinary excellence. Founded in 1993 by Danny Danglade, a “castaway” from his family’s restaurant business, the establishment quickly became an island favorite. The journey began in a building that once housed “Grandma’s Kitchen” and the “Chicken Coop.” In 2005, the Jones Family from Port Aransas took charge, steering Castaway’s towards continued success.
The story of Castaway’s Seafood & Grill took an unexpected turn on August 25, 2017, when Hurricane Harvey wreaked havoc on the original Castaway’s location on Alister Street. However, the spirit of Castaway’s prevailed, and on August 25, 2018, they reopened across the street in a new location.
Fresh Flavors and Timeless Traditions
Castaway’s Seafood and Grill prides itself on the timeless art of hand-battered fried seafood made to order, whether it’s your catch or theirs. The menu, evolving over the years, reflects a commitment to offering something for everyone. From corn dogs and chicken strips for the little sailors to Angus Rib Eyes and pasta dishes, Castaway’s ensures a delicious experience for everyone.
A distinctive feature of Castaway’s is its dedication to freshness and flavor. They bake the bread for their Po-Boys daily, craft an excellent Gumbo, and boast the title of serving the BEST shell-on jumbo grilled shrimp, seasoned with their secret “Chef’s Choice” seasoning.
Castaway’s is an experience designed for the whole family, including your furry friends. The pet-friendly patio invites your four-legged companions to join in the fun, making it a true family affair.
