We were blown away at the quality of food and service! The calamari was tender and fresh. The drinks were top shelf. The grouper melted in your mouth and the risotto was the best I’ve ever had! Even our salads were mouthwatering so fresh !!
Service was amazing and the Chef is a outstanding !!!
Great food and the service was outstanding. Views of the sunset over the bay was beautiful.
EXCELLENT. Nearly 5 stars. YES we would go back. LONGER VERSION: I am from Tampa, and I was entertaining a out-of-town client (who is a world foodie blogger) and we decided to go to Oystercatchers. Been here multiple times over 20 years and always great. SERVICE: It was not busy for a Sunday night, and we were seated in a Bay View table by request. Service from Nathallie - our main server - was Outstanding. She was there when you needed her and had a great attitude - especially considering the world events of early 2020. Nice job. WINE and COCKTAILS: By the glass (and bottle) had a small but adequate selection, and we opted to go with a couple of wines by the glass. Very good. FOOD: We started with the Calamari and Blue Point Oysters - fresh and Excellent. My companion had the fresh Whole Fish (Snapper), and I had the Black Grouper (blackened). Both were Excellent as well - very tasty. All perfectly cooked the way we liked it and we would order them again. The homemade bread they serve with the special salt/butter was yummy. OVERALL: A great experience with a short walk from the Grand Hyatt. A nice happy hour bar menu. Tip: Time your seating just before sunset (by 30 minutes or so), you will very much enjoy the view. Higher end for pricing, but reasonable given the freshness of the meal. YES we would go back. Two Thumbs Up from my client the foodie critic.
Beautiful location, outstanding service, and a great meal. This is one of our favorites in Tampa.
Need to have some salads or veggies without onion and garlic for people that are allergic. Was very noisy inside. Husband had to go to bathroom #2 before we left because something tore up his stomach.

Great selection of food on offer, I felt the waitress was holding back on refilling our drinks. Also after we asked for the check we didn’t see her again for a refill.

One of our favorite places in the Tampa Bay Area. A very romantic place, with the food being excellent, service is outstanding, drinks are fabulous and the prices are to be expected for all of that AND on the water.

Hello LivLetLiv, Thank you so much for sharing! We look forward to seeing you soon! Lindsay Carr General Manager
As tourists from Europe we went there in the expectation to have a special diner ambiance. I would say less than a sandbar. No tablecloth and no choice of sides with the entree. We had to accept rise because the chef had so decided. The quality was good but highly overprized.
Hello MarcT, I would like to apologize that your experience was so disappointing. We would have appreciated the opportunity to make this right while you will still here. Please feel free to reach out to me directly if I can be of any further assistance. Lindsay Carr General Manager
The only disappointment was that we picked a cloudy evening and did not see a sunset. The food and service were excellent.

It had been a few years since been to Oystercatchers. A bit disappointed in food.
Had their much touted buffet as in past.
Recalled more main courses and less entree salads and casserole type dishes.
Raw Oysters were full of shells.
Was birthday event for wife and was a pleasant time.

Hi Subzero96, Thanks so much for joining us! Glad you were able to enjoy brunch! We'll see you back soon! Lindsay Carr General Manager
The grilled octopus is always a great starter....Blackened grouper for my main meal always delivers all that my taste buds require. Sorry that they know longer have the delicious Brussel Sprouts however, the corn & okra side dish was great.
Hello sandram, Thank you so much for sharing. I am thrilled you enjoyed your experience. We'll look forward to seeing you back in the future for the new items our chef prepares! Lindsay Carr General Manager
The food was alright. Nothing mind blowing, but also nothing wrong with our meal. I think for the price, a little on the underwhelming side, but our overall experience was nice. The sides our entrees came with were probably more flavorful and delicious than the actual main item on the plate. The key lime pie was great though!
Our server was very friendly and helpful but it took almost 20 minutes to get the check!

Your feedback is very valuable for our improvement and I will definitely follow up with our team. If I can be of any further assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know! Lindsay Carr General Manager
Food and atmosphere were great. However, it felt like we kept getting forgotten about. Made us feel like we didn’t belong but it’s whatever. For my wife and I to have dinner for her birthday it took 2 hours and 20 minutes for some reason. The service was slow, we got our appetizer before getting our drinks and complimentary bread. Then waited 45-55 minutes for the entrees. By the end we didn’t even want dessert and they ignored that it was her birthday (it’s ok since we’re not looking for free stuff) so we just paid and left. Maybe they need for waiters/waitresses.
Hello, Thank you so much for sharing. I apologize for frustrating pace of the meal and that we missed the opportunity to celebrate your wife's birthday. Please feel free to reach out to me directly so that I may make this right. Lindsay Carr General Manager
