Castaways - North Avenue Beach

If you happen to be a 20 something, Castaways at North Avenue Beach is your summer hot spot. It’s more than just a bar to bump into the good-looking, tanned and perfectly toned.

Grab one of the prime tables that overlooks Lake Michigan and the dozens of volleyball nets that are the prime focus of activity on the beach. There were at least three groups lined up to snag our table before we were even finished.

What’s different from last year? Castaways now offers Cabanas available for rent daily through Labor Day.

The food… a to die for grouper sandwich and the only $12 item on an otherwise inexpensive menu.

Castaways is owned by the Phil Stefani Restaurant Group which includes two of my favorites: Riva Crab House at Navy Pier and Tavern on Rush.

The shop on the main floor has eye-catching North Avenue Beach Tshirts that will constantly remind you that there is nothing better in the summer than a day at the beach.

Bon Appetit!
