    Stone crab claws were delicious. We ordered the seafood grill and the stone crab claws and split both, and the waiter helped us by providing additional plates. Always excellent service and food.

    Oystercatchers has remained consistently a great experience over the years. The ambiance is sophisticated without being stuffy. The wait staff were excellent - 2 waiters working in tandem and our main waiter made an excellent wine recommendation for the meal. Our entrees were the black grouper (beautifully seared) and the filet, both excellently prepared, followed with delicious key lime pie and Starbucks coffee. The only negative (for us) was that there was too much starch on the plate and not enough vegetables. We enjoyed the music tremendously, from classical and jazz to current popular music - he played it all.

  • Should have gone to the Sand Pearl
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 10/17/2014
    It has always been a special occasion place to go and Friday night we were there for our 32 anniversary. The ambiance was wonderful. From there it went down hill. Our waitress had 0 personality, seemed as though she had someplace else she needed to be when taking our orders. The She Crab Soup was barely warm. We both ordered the Signature Seafood Entre. What a disappointment! 1 scallop, 1 shrimp, 1 piece of grouper, 1 piece of salmon, 1/2 lobster tail. The seafood was over cooked and warm/cold, the vegetables were warm on the outside and cold on the inside as if they had been under a heat lamp, and the potatoes seemed as if they were cooked the day before. Not what I would expect for a $42 entre. Should have gone to the Sand Pearl.

    Had the most incredible meal. I think my husband would have licked the plate if he wasn't in such an upscale restaurant. Our servers Debra and Barry were excellent. I was not feeling well when I arrived and Debra brought me a special drink that made me feel100% better, Looks like some of their staff are doctors too! Would recommend and has now become our favorite special night out restaurant.

    Our visited to oystercatchers was on a Saturday night. It first took 15 minutes just to order our cocktails and an appetizer. When the appetizer calamari arrived it was greasy. I got the mixed seafood dinner which was ok but my fiancé got the steak which arrived burnt and tasting like charcoal. For a restaurant that is $35-$45 a plate I was very unimpressed.

    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.

    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.
