    It is sad how much we spend for a night out to get mediocre food, service and have to sit in a loud half full dining room. And it astonishes me about the wine prices and you buy a $100 bottle of wine and they do not decant it or aerate it for you. This was my first time I think in my life I have been to Oystercatchers.. I am pretty sure it was the last. The valet team were fantastic, it was raining and they were out in the rain making it happen that was the one bright spot that was spoiled by being ignored by the hostesses and then she walks off turns and says follow me not by my name or anything like I should have read her mind.

    Our experience at Oystercatchers was pleasant. Service was great. Our server was friendly and provided recommendations. I appreciate that he was not constantly checking on us yet we always had all we needed. Drinks were good but not memorable. The valet attendant was phenomenal. It was pouring and he was attentive to all members of our party.

    The food was absolutely horrible. We had to send a steak back three times for being under cooked. The lobster was over cooked. The crab cake was mushy with NO LUMP CRAB! It gave a tuna fish texture. Nothing has seasoning. And we waited an hour for food with no updates from the server. We will never go back especially for the price.

    The view of the water was nice and our server was fantastic! While most of what we ordered was great, I didn’t care for my entree - seafood trio - because it only had one scallop, and the jumbo shrimp were tough to chew. The shrimp were so huge - maybe that’s why they were a tougher consistency. The brussel sprouts were soft not crispy. On the positive side, the lobster bisque was delicious, the polenta with mushrooms was amazing, and for dessert, the key lime pie was the best I’ve ever had! So unique! We will definitely come again.

    Sat at the bar, oysters were amazing. The staff was slammed so took a while. Lobster bisque was delicious even though it was on the cold side. Grouper was just ok. Will definitely return for oysters.

    I have been coming to the restaurant for years. I felt this time the flavors are slipping a little. I had the Beretta cheese, and it had very little flavor. The Sea bass was good but the sauce and polenta was not flavorful.

    Worst service I have ever received. Waited almost two hours for entrees that never arrived. The manager took care of the appetizer and two drinks we ordered, but we were never told how backed up the kitchen was and we’re promised our food four separate times. Horrible dining experience. Go elsewhere.

    Way way too noisy for this level of dining. The oysters and she crab soup were amazing as usual. Our fish was over cooked (shame for seafood focused establishment). Waitstaff must have been spread thin as they were absent a lot.

    Our server Zack was amazing he was very knowledgeable and just seemed super cool I really enjoyed having him as my server. I ordered the sea bass fish and chips style and the sauce on the plate paired perfectly with the fish and the potato’s. We also ordered the calamari and it was the best I’ve had the garnish was also very beautiful the chef did a great job on it. It was my 3 year anniversary with my girlfriend and we were offered a toast on the house, we had to say no because we don’t drink but it was really nice to go for our anniversary.

    Good food and service was excellent. Bathroom and restaurant itself needs some major cleaning. Walls by raw bar coming out of bathroom is gross and the grout on the floor is black. I actually feel on the greasy tile on my way out. Someone needs to look around and clean this place.

    Wonderful view of the bay and quiet until around 6:00 when other came and the noise level went up quite a few decibels, but understandable, which is why we went earlier. They have organ entertainment now and that was a nice touch.
