We sat at an inside table overlooking the bay. Food, service and the view were excellent. A little pricey but overall, worth it.

Been here many times. Food is nothing special but atmosphere is quite nice. Even nicer is being a guest at grand Hyatt and not having to drive to dinner

My crispy fried whole snapper was simply wonderful. Drinks were good and service was good considering our waiter seemed slammed by too many tables at once. I guess my only real disappointment having not been there for awhile was whose idea in corporate was it to take away the previous wonderful Key West sort of atmosphere of Oystercatchers and replace it with generic plain decor to make it look like any dining room of any typical contemporary hotel. I live in Florida myself, but I'm 99% sure that most travelers to Florida would far prefer a relaxed but atmospheric decor of a Florida seafood restaurant as opposed to what could be a meeting room in any hotel in the US. In my book this was definitely not a change for the better. While they're at it, why not take away the name Oystercatchers which now seems totally inappropriate and just call it "the dining room" or something generic to go with their decor?

Outstanding setting and view. Brunch was excellent with abundant refresh of Buffett line. Great seafood bar from oysters to shrimp. Sushi was good but limited. Salmon was fresh along with caviar and other fixings. Pasta bar and omelet stations were great. Entrees from covia, chicken, clams and mussels, to carving beef station excelled. Champagne or mimosas were endless. Desserts seemed to be enjoyed by others from banana fosters to ice cream and pies .

Our first time at Oystercatchers for Sunday Brunch. It is probably one of the best brunches in the Tampa area. Raw bar, caviar, waffle bar, omelet bar, pasta bar, bloody Mary bar,desserts, carved beef, sushi, and even healthy stuff like fruit. All you can drink Bloody Marys and Mimosas. Nice seating area outside. Huge selection and great service. Expensive for some at $55, but there was a Bentley and a Rolls Royce parked outside!

We came here for a family dinner. I’ve been here multiples times before and have always had good food but the service is varied. This time the service was very good. The hostess was not the best. She didn’t know that we requested a quiet table and we had to wait an additional 30 minutes.

We thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant which I hadn't been to for many years having moved. It was even better than I remembered it with a deft hand at cooking fish and a nice wine list. I had the best shrimp and grits I have ever had. Afterwards we walked on the shore enjoying all the birds and the views.

We were among the first seated for Friday service; table for two at a large picture window. As such, we had an excellent view of the Bay and sunset. Max, our waiter, perfectly gauged our pace, never pushing us. We followed his oyster recommendation and were quite pleased. The shrimp lobster bisque was the best I have ever tasted! We ordered whole snapper and grilled grouper; both entrees were prepared perfectly. Live piano player is a bonus. Will definitely be back!

Service very slow. Not sure if our server was alone with all our tables outside. We asked for the oysters 15-20 mins. After placing the order and were told when they were ready she would bring them out. Food was quite good but taking 40 mins to get our food was annoying and one order was a jelly sandwich for a 6 year old. Perhaps checking in on us would have made us feel more welcome.

Went to this location the day after Valentines Day. Very comfortable setting. Waiter came to the table when he was needed. Left us to enjoy our time. Food was exceptional as expected. Recommend this location for that special occasion.

My girlfriend and I went for Valentines Day, which was on Ash Wednesday, so it was very quiet. So, we were very lucky. All of the food was exquisite, from the Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes, the Ahi Poke, Oysters on the Half-Shell (of course), to the Local Gulf Shrimp and Black Grouper. The service was excellent as well. The valet parking was exceptional, too.

We were celebrating a "30 Years with the Company" anniversary. Last minute, as a surprise, two VIP's joined. The reservation was set for 12:15 but the addition of the two VIPs changed everything and we ended up arriving 45 minutes early, unannounced, and with an extra two in the party. Jennifer didn't bat an eye! She said "No problem!", we were seated immediately at a roomy table with a GORGEOUS view! Everyone in the party was very impressed. Our server was outstanding, the food was delicious, and as an added bonus the complimentary bread was raved about! Thank you for the seamless handling of our special celebration! We will be back!

Seafood grill and Grouper dinner was ok. Wedge salad was uneventful and not very fresh. We were both very disappointed with staff attire. Perhaps shorts is appropriate for lunch but we expected different for dinner. This was a special occasion for us and we chose this restaurant over several others. Really nothing to brag about. Not worth returning.
