Diner Reviews
  • "The food was for the price a disappointment. We order two seafood grills and two specials surf and turf. All items on the plate were over salted and black peppered to the point that it ruined all the flavors of what was an excellent filet minion and lobster. The best calamari I had in the USA after my Mother's and an excellent pudding. Everyones entree were way to salty. We should have return them but we were eating late, my parents were tired and it was their 52 Anniversary. We were disappointed to say the least.,,,"

  • "The sunset view during dinner is amazing. Food is great and service was good also. Great date spot but the food is better at Pane Rustica."

  • "Nice dinner experience in typical fashion of the upper scale offering of a large hotel. Cuisine was good to very good, service was standard, dining room was modern and clean, piano player added a very nice touch, views of the bay and the sunset were fantastic. Comfortable that returning would provide me with another good experience, however, it wouldn't be my first choice when considering more of a fine dining experience."

  • "Another great meal at Oyster Catcher's. The tuna tartare was perfect and the grouper had an inventive preparation that beats the ever popular fried. Service is crisp and efficient and helpful. When weather cooperates, the outdoor area is very special for a quiet dinner. The indoor part does get loud when large groups are there."

  • "I travel to Tampa on business a couple times a year and I make sure to dine at Oystercatchers - whether for a business meeting or just for myself. The food is to die for and the service is out of this world. Not to mention the fabulous view. I highly recommend it!"

  • "I liked the waiter. Attentive but not over bearing. Food was good but not great. Presentation of the food was exceptional. Oysters Rockefeller were incredible. Black grouper was very small and not fresh. Whole red fish was over fried and greasy. Dessert, creme Brule was generous and tasty. House chard was good for the bottle price."

  • "I remember Oystercatchers as being a very attractive and service orientated restaurant. What a pity that their standards have declined. We almost felt like intruders when we arrived and were shown to the cocktail bar. The person there was somewhat irritated (it appeared) that we may have interrupted his siesta. There were no 'nibbles' on any table. When shown to a table there was no-one to assist the lady in being seated and no one to arrange the serviettes. There was no butter knife on the side plates and onl one knife and fork when it was likely several courses would be consumed and no soup spoon either. No fish knives and forks. The standards and service are severely lacking."

  • "The food was absolutely delicious! Oyster Catchers is very secluded and it's almost as if it's on an island. The restaurant overlooks the beautiful Tampa Bay."

  • "I ordered oysters, and they were way over- priced and small. I have ordered oysters in high-class restaurants, and they were not as expensive. I am sorry, but I was disappointed with the food in general."

  • "My husband and I were in town to visit relatives, and asked our hotel concierge for a nice restaurant. We weren't looking to travel very far from our hotel, but when she described Oystercatchers, we decided pretty quickly this is where we would go. (It was about a 30 minute drive.) And I'm happy to say it didn't disappoint. Arriving early, we had a cocktail at the bar, where we found the bartender to be engaging despite how busy he was having to take care of tables as well. For dinner, we were given a table by the window with a great view of the sunset. Our server Michael was really friendly and gave us some great recommendations. The special was a tuna filet and shrimp with 3 sauces, each as good as the last. What a wonderful night out."

  • "Went with a party of 6 and enjoyed excellent service & fabulous food. Our server and his assistant were just helpful enough with refilling water glasses and accommodating us without being too overbearing. A talented pianist played a great variety of music, including "Letting Go" right after my daughter walked by him to use the restroom (sweet). The seafood was fresh, the portions were ample, and even for a vegetarian like me, there were enough salad and veggie side item options that I had more than enough to eat. I appreciated that when I ordered the braised greens side, the server was kind enough to ask me if it was okay that it was braised in duck. They offer a kids menu too, although I would not recommend it for young or loud children."

  • "I treated my boyfriend to a birthday dinner at Oystercatcher. We sat outside. It was hot, but the mist fans made it quite comfortable, and the view was breathtaking! Our server was extremely attentive and kept our glasses refilled and the bread coming. The food was delicious. I ordered the Mahi and my boyfriend ordered the red snapper. Both were wonderful! And our crab cake appetizer was the best I've ever had :) To top off the experience, our waiter brought out a birthday dessert of fresh berries and cream.....amazing! We will be back."

Space where were seated was very sterile......Server were good but very overbearing to the point of hovering and interrupting our conversation to ask if we needed anything which was obvious we did not....Probably will not return even though we have many pleasant experiences there in the past.....disappointed"

  • "During a get-away weekend to Tampa from the Sarasota area, my husband and I, and another couple celebrated two birthdays at the Oystercatchers Restaurant. They seated us at a window table for a fantastic view of the Bay. Our waiter, Charlie, was excellent; attentive, fun to interact with, and made great recommendations for everything from appetizers to desert. The Crabcakes have to be the best I've ever tasted, even compared to the infamous Maryland crabcakes! Everyone's entres were fresh and bursting with flavor. The She Crab soup is a must as well, but can be shared to save room for the dinner. I would most definitely recommend this restaurant if you're looking for a great experience all the way around."

  • "I had been to the bunch a few years ago ... It is no longer worth the cost .. It was loud and the food was nothing special .. I can get the same food at many other places in the area for half the cost .. Go to the Hard Rock ..for better food and better service "

  • "Oystercatchers remains one of our favorite brunch spots. But, the quality and variety of food has diminished over the past year. $50 is a hefty price for the food they serve. There is alot of it--but the beef is not grass fed and not cooked well. They used to have turkey and ham as well. The fish (snapper) was dried out and swam in a heavy sauce. There was no hot poultry dish. The marinated mushrooms were exquisite as was the asparagus salad. The mixed vegetables were ok. The highlight of the brunch was the omelette bar and the two young gentlemen who went out of their way to find habanero peppers to spice them up. Sitting outside was great! If you like to sit outside, eat alot of food and don't mind paying for it--this is the place. "

  • "Went there to celebrate a birthday. Amazing view but the service not so amazing. The server could have tried a little harder. She didn't ask if we were celebrating anything or if it was our first time there. We asked if we can get our oysters lightly steamed. Her response "uh i don't know, I guess" ....... Really ? She just wasn't friendly & looked like she had a long day and didn't want to work. I wouldn't go there again, it was a special day & we just had to focus on the good day we had so far rather talk negative on how the service was at dinner. Won't go there again. "

  • "We dined with another couple from out of state. We started with a cocktail on the deck. What a beautiful view sitting on a comfy couch. Our dinner inside by a window also had a gorgeous view, The guys had oysters and we had salads, the strawberry and the Caesar. Excellent and filing. Tasty bread with a sea salt accompanied these. I had the gulf shrimp which was a lovely presentation. All the meals were above average, portions generous and service outstanding."
