Humuhumu’s description:
The Castaway was a nautically themed restaurant overlooking the San Francisco Bay from Coyote Point Recreation Area. While not strictly tiki, it had many tropical and flotsam-and-jetsam elements, like float lamps, netting and monkeypod tabletops.

The Castaway closed in 1997 for major repairs, but the repairs never happened. After standing in increasing disrepair for over a decade, the building was bulldozed in February 2008.
