Good Eats: The Castaway…One of the Best Brunches in the Inland Empire

The Selection is Incredible and Don’t Forget to Try the Lamb Chops

Every time I visit my Grandma in San Bernardino, I make sure it’s a Sunday.

Why? So we can go to her favorite brunch at the Castaway. The restaurant is nestled on top of a hill with great panoramic views of the surrounding area that seem to go on forever. Simply Breathtaking.

The food here is amazing. The buffet has an incredible selection of delicious morsels guaranteed to satisfy even the most discriminating pallet, young and old. There is a huge salad bar to get things started.

I head straight to the seafood section and load up with chilled crab legs, jumbo shrimp, smoked salmon and mussels. Enjoy them hot or cold, as the staff will quickly warm them up and get you a nice side of warm butter. Delicious, perfectly Baked Salmon is also in this section.

There is a Mexican section with enchaladas, carnitas, rice and beans…and oh yes, menudo, There are several meat selections to choose from, sausage, bacon, ribs and lots more. You can get your ham, turkey or roast beef carved to order too. They even have sushi rolls.

There is an omelette and pasta station where you can get everything made to order. My favorite is the waffle station, I like to smother mine with fresh fruit and whipped cream.

You can also order speciality items off the menu. They have Eggs Benedict…regular or witth smoked salmon, freshly grilled French Toast, Fajitas…and my favorite: the Lamb Chops.

Did I mention the Champagne? The very polite, attentive and professional staff aways kept my glass nice and full. Perfect with the meal and even better with dessert.

The Dessert Bar had a Chocolate Fountain with all kinds of goodies like strawberries, bananas, pineapple and brownies for dipping. The pastry selection was amazing… there was so much to choose from.

Can’t wait to visit Grandma again really soon. The Brunch is $38.99 …but if you arrive early, you can save $5 per person.
