food was ok. Best part of the evening was the smoked salt with the bread, the wine (Opus One) and the view. Service was good but not top notch.

Great food, setting and ambiance. Mediocre service but the servers helper guy from Chile made it much better than the server guy who lacked attention, courtesy and smile. We tipped him separately.

Ambiance is always great. Service was great. But fish was over cooked and over salted. Not my best experience. I’ve been here many times but this was definitely the worst.

Faded glory...there was a time when this restaurant was absolutely superb. For many years the company I worked for held their annual conference at the Hyatt. Taking customers over to Oystercatchers was always a highlight. At the time the service and the food was five star. It appears the establishment has fallen on hard times. The building and interior were really in poor shape. We waited quite a long time before someone took our drink order. Their famous sourdough bread never made it to our table even when asked. The lettuce in the Caesar salads was wilted and soggy. We gave up at that point, paid our bill and left. It had been a few years since we last dined having moved away. It was one of our favorite places when we lived in Tampa and were sad and disappointed with our latest visit. 🙁

Took our friends that were visiting from NY and as usual we were not disappointed! Everything was delicious! We had the seafood trio, surf and turf, tuna and roasted chicken. The Brussels sprouts were amazing! Lobster bisque was on point and the shrimp in my shrimp cocktail were huge and excellent.

Love this spot on the water - we’ve been coming for years and this remains in our top go to dining choices.

We had a great evening. We sat out side and enjoyed a beautiful sunset. It was a nice touch when our waiter brought two glasses of champagne and wished us a Happy Anniversary.

Love the ambiance, view and the service was spectacular. The food was good, but not that great for the price. The portions are small and the flavor was just ok. No wow for me.

As always everything was perfect. The food is amazing and the service beyond anything you will get anywhere. Be sure to ask for a table with Cindy. She is the best and instinctively knows what you need before even you do. It was my birthday but we go all the time because of the food, Cindy and the sunsets. Highly recommend ❤️❤️❤️

Excellent service and food. Highly suggest parking at Hyatt and taking the boardwalk stroll to the restaurant. The outdoor patio was perfect. Our server was on top of everything and made sure we had a perfect date night. Highly recommended.

Grest place and great views on Tampa Bay. Greeted very nicely then had drinks at a very well-stocked bar with an excellent bartender. Our waiter was great too, very attentive and full of information and was there only when we needed him.
The food was orgasmic! Beautiful and flavorful. It was our second time in 7 years and we hope it doesn’t take us another 7 to return.
We both highly recommend it!

We enjoyed amazing “the seafood trio” and Mac and cheese. The service was very attentive. Wished we could have had an outside table but enjoyed ourselves immensely inside! Chocolate flourless cake was incredible!!!!

After visiting several times, this was highly disappointing. One of the main dishes was completely wrong, and that person had to wait for a new meal to be prepared. Three others were cold, and they just threw them under the heat lamp. The manager had no idea what was going on. Although our servers were very nice, they didn’t try to make the meals right. We will not go here again.

Service was lacking for a fine dining restaurant. Refills weren't as timely as I would like and not the level of service I was expecting.

The hostess though was outstanding and very customer service oriented. She was a pleasure to deal with before and after our meal.
