Does any past brides have an example set up of their reception set up at Castaways (with round tables)? I found a cool seating chart option on wedding wire and I'm trying to play around but it's hard not having any clue how the room is set up!

Thanks mlite! I'm set on round tables though! I mentioned the rectangular ones to my mother in law and she shot me down pretty quick! lol ;)

I had my reception at Castaway, but I had one long table. How many people are you having? I only ask because where we had the dance floor was right in front of the bar and I think it would be cool to have people sitting on both sides for the reception, given that you have enough people to do that. I can upload some pics of my set up if you want.

I gave the guests 3 options: The beef and shrimp, scallops and mahi mahi, and pork medallions. I chose the shrimp and scallops in coconut milk as the appetizer and the lobster bisque but everyone got to pick their entree out of the three above.

Katie, some pictures would be fabulous! I've seen your review, but I can't remember if there are too many pictures of Castaways, well at least enough where I can actually see the lay out. I'm still uncertain of our exact amount but I'm thinking about 40 possibly more. Probably 5-7 round tables depending on the exact number of guest. Plus a sweetheart table for my FI and I, small cake table and small table for photos and guest book. I'm trying to visualize your idea of having people sit on both sides of the dance floor.. Would I have enough tables? I forgot there's already a bar in there, that's great!

I picked the same exact as you did, we'll I'm only giving 2 options, beef & shrimp and Scallops & Mahi mahi. But I also chose the shrimp and scallops in coconut milk and lobster bisque! The salad choices were not appealing to me at all so we went with an app! ;-)

How was the lobster bisque?

Those are the ones I chose too! :)

The beef and shrimp was delicious! I didn't eat much of the lobster bisque but I think everyone agreed that it was pretty good!

I forgot that the one side has this wall thing that might block people from seeing things if you have people on both sides of the dance floor:

ProcMediaServlet (params=[pa=0.5&sa=0&ry=400&rx=550&cr=0.0,0.0,1.0,1.0&nocredit=1&ci=47a2ce22b3127ccef1122dd33e7800000030O00AZM2jZk2ZtGgPbz4Q&py=4.665871278930243&px=7.0&r=0&cb=16777214&p=1&ps=50&po=0&g=2.2&f=0&bw=0.2&b=1&ph=65534&si=00404362643220121003135241664.JPG&gc=1] actions=[CachedCanvas (RawOrProxyraw(com.shutterfly.imaging.rendering.imageref.ReferenceManager$Ref@5643737e, 600) | FitToSize(java.awt.Dimension[width=550,height=367], 2) | ScaleRGB(1.0, 1.0, 1.0) | Sharpen(1.2999999523162842) | ShowPrint(java.awt.Dimension[width=550,height=400], 255, 1.0, 1.0, 1.0, 0, 0.800000011920929, 0.800000011920929, 0.800000011920929, 0) -> NativeCanvas(2AAAD5ABAB60))]) PixSense Recompression: PX_COMP_STD 172.16.17.51 2013/01/23 12:30:03.377

This shows the bar which was directly behind where we had the dance floor along the back wall:

This shows that not the whole side is blocked by the tall wall thing:

Hope that helps give you a better idea of the setup!
