    We went to brunch at Oystercatchers for our 7th wedding anniversary. There was an excellent selection of food ranging from breakfast omelets to sushi and the raw bar. We totally enjoyed our time sampling dishes from most of the stations. The mimosas were great and our glasses were never empty. A wonderful experience. Thanks Oystercatchers for making our day special.

    Long time Oyterscatchers fan. Our favorite resturant in Tampa Bay Area. Only regret from dinner is the fish portion was too small on several orders. Mahi Mahi is an inexpensive fish. My guest loves seafood and his portion was very small. The difference between a 4 star and 5 star rating

  • Chart House Tampa

    Dined on 9/21/2014
    This was the fourth Chart House at which we have dined and we were looking forward to the experience. Unfortunately, the barman and the ambiance left us disappointed. We arrived early so as to have a pre dinner drink at the bar and the Hostess reminded us we were still in time for happy hour. Good start. The barman recommended a wine and we made the mistake of not inquiring the price. We were a bit shocked when he billed us $25.00 plus tax for two glasses of not very good house wine during happy hour. He claimed he didn't realize it was still happy hour despite us overhearing him telling a waitress as he was pouring our drinks that there was ten minutes to go before the end of happy hour. Other staff members gave excellent service.

    6:30 reservation was made a few days in advance and had a wonderful view in a bay window overlooking Tampa Bay. The sun was spectacular as it set. For only a few well timed minutes before it set, the motorized see through shades came down so the sun would not spoil the view. Everything was terrific. Only if the sound level could be reduced some.

    Had a family dinner here last week. Food was expensive but great, we got the water view table we requested, service was very good. Only thing that could have been better was there was a little too long of a wait for our server to come between courses. The lobster Mac and cheese was a big hit - we shared one order among us. The various seafood entrees were all delicious and all of the entrees came out at the same time. Key lime pie was great too.

    Cocktails were creative, fresh and delicious! For appetizers we had the oysters and the pork belly. Unlike anything we have had before. The flavors were a perfect combination. For dinner hubby and I split the seafood grill with the crab grits. Everything was cooked to perfection and so delicious. The view was superb, looking forward to return soon

    Outstanding evening. We were given an excellent table with a view of the gulf. Our waiter was very professional, attentive but not intrusive. Service was not rushed with thoughtful timing between appetizer and entree. Even the wine service was timely, with more concern for our enjoyment rather than emptying the bottle so we might buy another. It was a Birthday celebration and the restaurant made it a special one.The food preparation was outstanding, we could not have asked for a more enjoyable evening.

    I often get to Tampa and when I do, I try to get to Oystercaters. The menu selections had changed, but there were still fantastic selections of seafood, chicken and steaks. The restaurant attracts quite a few hotel guest from the Grand Hyatt. The food is always fresh and well prepared. The service is stellar and I have never had a bad meal there. It is not a tourist spot, so you will have to go off the beaten path to find it. You will not be disappointed.

    We pulled up to drop off the ladies in our foursome and were greeted by a valet. No sign for valet, he wasn't wearing a uniform or even a name tag. I said I would like to self park, he made a nasty comment and left the door ajar. (btw, it is my custom to tip the valet even when I self park, but not this time). We then entered the restaurant, were greeted pleasantly, then seated. Very nice decor, however, I did request a table with a view of the sunset. We were seated behind a pole with only one person having a view. (there were other tables available) Then the power went out, just for about a minute. Then, the power went out again for good. We were not offered drinks or anything, the restaurant started to fill with smoke, we left.

    Oystercathers is a genuine Pearl! Upon entering the restaurant, you are greeted by a warm and friendly maitre de, and escorted to your table (with a smile!). The waitstaff was friendly, informative (not overbearing) with local food recommendations and wine pairings, and very accommodating. The view from our table was breathtaking. We dined at sunset. It was a magical painted picture. We had the blackened grouper and filet mignon. Both were expertly prepared, piping hot on delivery and full of flavor. The sourdough bread which was delivered hot & fresh with Vermont Cream Butter and smoked sea salt, it was intoxicating. That is almost reason enough to try this great restaurant. We ended our meal with freshly baked key lime pie. WOW!

    Was our first visit, I was happy to see we received a window seat as requested, the wife and I found it to be exceptional, *our only regret was we arrived 1400 hours (reservation) to find the brunch was over at 1430 hours, a bit disappointing but I guess that's my fault for not observing the brunch schedule, that aside we will definitely be returning (earlier brunch next time) and we are looking forward to trying it for diner very soon as well. PS: I believe our waiter was Damian (I hope thats correct) he did an excellent job taking care of us. thank you Damian.

    It is a "sin" in my book to visit a great city with several great restaurants and dine at the same place twice. I intentionally broke this moral code with OysterCatchers. Ate there on Saturday and then again for Sunday brunch. Daniel was our exceptional waiter... Service was impeccable. Conversation was sincere. Steve the manager also gave us individual attention. Very well run and they both infused a sense of belonging to our outstanding experience ... With a perfect view of the Bay, food that made me want to cry... Service that was outstanding. A Tampa blessing!

    So glad I found this place! Best seafood and dinner choices in Tampa. Everything my party of 12 had was amazing! The service from our waiter Max was superb. The only reason I did not give 5 stars overall is because my party did not get seated until our entire group arrived even though I asked for them to be seated as they arrived and given appetizers.

    We travel once a month to Tampa and always look for a new place to dine. Although Oystercatchers is not new, we had not heard of it. Upon finding it and looking at the menu, we decided to try it as it was on the way to a concert we were going to in Clearwater. The seafood is fresh and is served with wonderful sides and lovely presentation. Our server Charles was very knowledgeable about the menu and wine list and had wonderful suggestions as well as a great sense of humor (which we LOVE). Oystercatchers is a throwback to when service was on par with the fine quality of food. Although we do enjoy dining a restaurants that are more modern in style and service, this type of restaurant is a dying breed and thoroughly appreciated by us.
