My friend told me about the opening and we decided to give it a try this past weekend.

I'll say this: I will be back.

The place has a relaxed, beachy vibe. I imagine you would hit up this place after spending the day at the beach.

There is a huge bar that serves as the vocal point of the place. There are surrounding tables if barstools are not for you.

They also have a few tables set up outside for outdoor seating but soon, their outdoor area will be stacked to the max.

I overheard one of the business owners talking to a few customers about his plans.

Once completed, there will be a second outdoor bar with additional stools and surrounding tables. They also have plans to hang up speakers so it feels like a party the second you arrive.

From what I personally tried, the food and drinks were pretty darn good.

They make a MEAAAANNNN mojito - a personal favorite of mine in the Summertime.

Also shown in the photo above is their red sangria (middle) and an aperol spritz (left).

For food, I tried their shrimp cocktail and the drunken clams. I must admit, the order comes with four shrimp, not three. I just couldn't wait before the photo was taken.

The seafood was fresh but the sauce for the clams could have used some extra spices and seasoning to amp the flavor up a notch.

I'm not overly concerned because it was still enjoyable and I finished the entire thing.

What do I want to try that I didn't get to yet?

Here's what catches my eye: fried calamari, beef empanadas, Thai chili & garlic shrimp, blackened salmon and YOWZA, their truffle parmigiano fries.

For cocktails, the Razberi Kiss will be next. It has Stoli Raspberry, Fresh Lemon Juice, Pomegranate Juice, Pineapple Juice and Simple Syrup.

Castaway's Pub: welcome to the Jersey Shore family.
