Last week I headed out to Bridgeville for Pittsburgh’s second TasteCasting event! This time it was held at Castaways outside Inn, which is located right on the main drag in downtown Bridgeville. The place really isn’t hard to miss with the bright yellow awning. Castaways calls themselves a sports bar / restaurant and that is exactly what they are. Some of best food that I’ve had has been at a bar! When you come into Castaways there is a large bar area and some restaurant seating in the back. If you walk around the corner there is a door that leads to the outside area. Most of the outside area is covered, which if you know Pittsburgh weather that is a good thing! The outside area has another large bar and quite a few tables for people to sit at.
Instead of us ordering food we were served buffet style, which is nice because you get to try quite a few of their selections and you may try things you might not order regularly. They had potato salad, wings, ribs, pulled pork, and fried green beans.
Castaways is known for their wings and on Thursdays from 5:00-11:00 PM they have FREE WINGS! That’s right free wings! I don’t know of any place in Pittsburgh that does this! No one can complain about free food! I started off with a plate of wings and pulled pork. Castaways had all of their sauces out and I tried all of them. My favorite was the honey jalapeno, which has a very distinct flavor; nothing that I have tasted from any other wing place. The pulled pork was great, I could eat it all day! My second plate was mostly the ribs, which had caramelized onions on top. The ribs were cooked perfectly and fell right off the bone! I think I almost ate an entire rack myself!
The atmosphere inside and outside of Castaways was great and I wouldn’t mind spending a night here just relaxing and having a few drinks with friends. This place definitely has to be packed during Steelers and Penguin games! If you are local to Bridgeville definitely check out Castaways, you will not be disappointed!
