Food quality and presentation are consistently top notch. Attentive service. Our corner of the dining room was particularly loud; this was probable a combination of a very noisy table next door and the abundant glass window on that side of the restaurant.

Really great location and food was amazing. However it was quite overpriced. $50 for one lobster claw is insane.

Hi Nicole, We appreciate you joining us and thank you for your feedback! I apologize for the confusion with our pricing. We actually do not serve lobster claws, but I believe you were able to enjoy one of our colossal stone crab claws. Pricing for these items is traditionally higher due to their limited availability. We hope to see you back soon and if I can be of any further assistance, please let me know! Lindsay Carr General Manager

Everything was exceptional. I might skip the Oysters Rockefeller next time, but the fried oysters were amazing. Both the Gulf Snapper and the Pan Roasted Florida Grouper were outstanding, cooked perfectly and had just enough flavor to enhance the fish, not overpower it. Service was attentive without being intrusive and the ambiance is classic elegance.

I had the tuna nicoise. I was a little surprised when the tuna came in a tuna salad form. It gave the impression that the tuna was left over and being used up from previous meals. Also it did not seem particularly fresh.

Not sure why people flock to this place. It was overcrowded. Food was marginal. I can’t believe so many were eating omelets at that price.

Was not enough selection of hot lunch items. Speaking of hot, all wasn’t hot. Barely lukewarm.

Nice desert station. Had to flag down server for drink refills. But of course they add their tip automatically.

Wouldn’t return. Four adults and two young children were $350.

Could have had a high end meal for that in a nice steakhouse.

We used to love this place and had not been here in some time. We picked it for fresh seafood and the view. The service was very slow and the server was very unprofessional and inattentive. The food was marginal at best. My grilled grouper was dry and overcooked and served with cold/tasteless rice. Dessert was no better, we tried the creme brûlée that was ruined by too much meddling in the chefs part (Carmel and bacon do work in it). We won’t go back. This was a very expensive lesson.

The service at Oystercatchers was amazing! They are super quick and always checking on you. The food was great, a little pricey we thought but good overall. Husband felt his lobster mac was overcooked but my blackened shrimp were amazing and the veggies so buttery delicious. The dock seats across from the restaurant were the best way to watch the sunset. A real treat we enjoyed! Thanks again for a nice evening.

This place is really special - fantastic views of the Bay, exquisite food..but waiters are dressed up like nobody cares of their attire: untucked shirts on oversized bellies for the most part...does not portray first class experience and is not aligned with food quality and overall upscale atmosphere.

My fiancé and I have been frequenting OC since our first date 8 years ago and the brunch is a favorite of ours to treat out of town guests to. This weekend was as great as ever but the service wasn’t what it normally was. I’m not sure if our waitress was new or just had too many tables but it required a few reminders to get mimosas topped off throughout. Otherwise, it was excellent as usual!
