    Love this place, all be it has changed. Slimmed down menu but concentrated towards quality an taste. Be sure to bring a sweater, it is chilly inside. Thank God she had a sweater in the car for me to get. We sat down next to a loud table, Like they were at a sports bar and obnoxious.. I get it they were having a night out but this is not the place and wish that their waiter had said that there are other guest trying to converse and enjoy their time too. Not big deal, nor restaurant fault, it’s low key and nice.

    The food and service was very good. The ambient noise was overpowering because of several tables of very loud customers. The meal was very over-priced.

    Food, views and service (Daniel) were excellent. Evidently Oystercatchers on the patio is pet friendly. After we had been seated for a while and having a wonderful lunch, a party with a dog was seated on the patio near us. The dog barked every time anyone walked by. This was extremely annoying and inappropriate in the setting and for the price. I spoke to the manager afterwards and she suggested that I only sit inside. No compensation was offered. This was extremely disappointing that she basically took the side of the yapping dog rather than the party of 4.

    We made special requests via email with the General Manager days before coming in to celebrate a milestone birthday, which were not honored when we arrived. Additionally, the host was quite rude—insisting he could not seat us until the last member of our party came in from the parking lot. The restaurant was completely empty. Food was edible but not exciting or worth the prices—it has gone downhill significantly over the past few years.

    Service was mediocre and food came out lukewarm and some dishes were even cold. We informed the manager but she just said sorry without even trying to understand or rectify the situation. None of the food was actually very good. My sister had an entire drink spilled all over her from the waiter. It was not a good experience at all. I would not go back.

    My family took me to Oystercatchers for my birthday celebration. From start to finish it was a wonderfully delicious experience. I have a gluten sensitivity and our server made sure my entree (seared scallops) was free of any gluten foods; and yet it was still delicious. The rest of my family enjoyed all their entree choices as well. Our server went out of his way to exchange the spicy margaritas with regular margaritas for family members who were not familiar with the taste. And the General Manager, Danielle, came by our table a few times to check on us and it made us feel like VIPs, by surprising us with complimentary champagne. birthday girl drink and appetizers. This was truly an enjoyable experience for me and my family.

    This was the perfect place to eat. It’s not attached to the hotel Which I thought it may be (as we didn’t stay in the hotel). The price was $174 without a tip but feel it was absolutely fair. 3 appetizers 2 meals 1 desert I would absolutely go back here. The staff were ALLL so friendly. The tuna was the best I have literally ever had, the lobster was good but the tuna was far superior. What an amazing experience.

The food and cocktails were simply delightful and the staff was exceptional! Especially Diane K! She was so accommodating and treated us like the only patrons in the building. What a great way to spend an afternoon with friends, we can’t wait to return!

    Most important comment is that OysterCatchers is not closed for renovation for at least 6-7 weeks. They did not have a firm reopening date. Many remember OysterCatchers as the go-to brunch spot in Tampa for years. They discontinued the buffet brunch with COVID replacing it with ala cart from a very limited menu. They have tweaked things in the last couple of months - each entree now comes with 2 Bloody Marys or 2 Mimosas. They also had complimentary danish platter before the meal and a complimentary dessert platter after. Food was good. Service was spotty considering how few people were in the place. I could tell that some staff were preparing for the renovation by moving things around. Overall noisy, but that was in part due to a very noisy table right next to us. They implied that the buffet may be coming back, but not on the scale it was pre-COVID. We'll see what is announced once they re-open.

    My first visit, but my wife's second to Oystercatchers was good. For a $$$ restaurant and one to have the name "Oyster" in their name was a bit of s disappointment when it came to the size of the oysters--very small. In fact the smallest I have ever encountered ($18 for 5). However, the Pork Shank was AMAZING. My wife had the Grouper which she had to return due to dryness. I think the best part of the night was definitely our servers Mike and Brian and the cocktails. They made us feel like royalty. From the water to the Red Sangria, over to the smoked Old Fashion, our drinks were refreshing and gone in no time. LOL. I would definitely return once the renovation is complete, late Aug 22.

    Did not know it was last night before closing for 6 weeks to renovate. So limited items and wine but would have expected if I knew in advance. Certainly not the normal attention to detail that the restaurant is well known for. Server tried has hard to correct and compensate but he was not the chef. All said look forward to the renovation and visiting soon as a local resident and not just the hotel guest that may be a one stop shopper.

    Appetizers (tuna poke and crab cakes) were delicious. Entrees (sea scallops and grilled seafood trio) seemed to be under seasoned. The grill seafood trio could have used more sauce and fewer potatoes.

    Went back to Oystercatchers last evening after a long break. Service and food were first rate. Recommend the french fried calamari and the scallops in a butternut squash sauce/mushrooms - out of this world! Marly (sp?) was our server and super attentive throughout the meal. A shame that they will be closing for a few months for renovations. Can't wait to return. Even the bread plate was first rate! One of the best dining experiences in Tampa for us in recent years.

    Our waiter Bob and his helper were outstanding. We never had a dirty dish on our table . Our drink order came out fast and they were great , I had a smoky old fashion and my husband had a Florida drink that was very tasty. I had the grilled oysters to start and the seafood trio for a entree, my husband had raw oysters and the lobster crab bisque and the scallops for his entree, both were fabulous. We ended our meal with the pineapple cheesecake,it was very creamy and delicious. The seafood was cooked to perfection. I would recommend it to all my friends.
