    In the past I have been very happy with the food and service at this restaurant. I was disappointed with the pre fixe Thanksgiving menu today. The food was bland, very small servings for appetizers and soup and desert. The Prime rib was not seasoned and not tender. At $100 a person and automatic 20% gratuity, I was expecting a first class experience as I have in the past at Oystercatchers….not today. The service was fine.

    Dog lovers beware. They are listed on Bring Fido as "pet-friendly" but everyone acted like it was the first time anyone had ever brought their dog. I had to ask for a bowl of water and the server brought out a plastic take home tray that moved when our dog drank out of it so water slopped everywhere and she ended up laying in it, negating the bath we paid for earlier that day.

    Occasional customers - but 1st visit since Covid started. I’m my opinion: Brunch started out great with a good bread/danish/muffin board… Without a doubt, the calamari is probably the best you’ll ever find, although the shoshito peppers were awful - not much flavor and might as well have been boiled…ugh. The avocado toast was good, but I suggest keep all the mustard (Dijon based) on the side and put none on the toast….it’s a strange combo with the avocado. BTW Oystercatchers should consider serving the mustard condiment to the calamari - it went great together! The lobster/crab omelet was very good - abundant lobster but sparse on the crab (consider just making this a lobster omelet in the future). The crab cake Benedict was a failure. The eggs were perfect, but under a tasteless Hollandaise. I found only claw meat in the crabcake, and the fried green tomato was nearly as tasteless as the Hollandaise. This dish either should be revamp or eliminated from the menu…. Potato ash was wonderful, but couldn’t salvage this train wreck. Service was, as usual, fantastic.

    To start off, we use to love oystercatchers. We got engaged there a couple years ago. However, since the renovation it is not the same. The bar looks less elevated & more basic hotel bar. The bartender seemed annoyed to serve us. I ordered a French 75 & she didn’t even shake the gin, lemon juice & simple over ice. She simply poured it right into the glass without stirring it or chilling it. Same with my husbands old fashioned, not even a stir. The dinner menu is totally different & lacked flavor. I had the lobster gnocchi & he had the seared scallops. Bread wasn’t warm. East coast oysters were good but those are raw so kind of hard to mess up. It was not the best birthday dinner for my husband so I felt bad. Very disappointed.

    This was our 1st meal since they reopened. We usually would dine here at least once a month. We were very pleased at the new additions to the menu. The octopus appetizer was superb. There were 3 of us and 2 had the tuna for an entre and was a little disappointed that it was missing on taste. My sister had the pork on the bone and it was superb ! I wish that the wine list was somewhat a little bit more interesting.

    The food was very good! The presentation was fun and lots of good options and specials. Wait staff was super friendly and attentive and the atmosphere was romantic. However, we showed up 10 minutes before our reservation time for our anniversary dinner and we were asked to wait at the bar for our table. We waited for over an hour to be seated after asking for updates several times. It was very frustrating to wait when it was supposed to be a romantic night out. No acknowledgment of tardiness or the anniversary when we were finally seated.

    We made special reservation for birthday dinner. I called in advance to request for that we can bring the ice cream cake for the dinner and paid an extra fee for it to be cut. Upon arriving no one seems to understand it’s an ice cream cake and need to put in the freezer. I had mention to the receptionist that it needs to be frozen but she does not seems to get the message. When the cake was serve, it melted. In terms of food quality, the pan seared scallops were very small, the pork shank was overcooked and bland. Overall the food were not what we expected for $80 per person. It’s one time experience.

    It had been nearly a decade since I dined at Oystercatchers and it has fallen on hard times. The location is beautiful and the food used to be very good but no more. The salads weren't very fresh and the portion size was very small. Maybe the smallest beet salad I have ever seen . Worse, the grilled grouper was a soggy in a literal broth. I was hoping to expose some out of town friends to some great local fish but this was not it. I'm afraid its being run like an institutional hotel restaurant. Disappointing. I would not recommend Oystercatchers.

    A trash experience. I went there for my anniversary date. The restaurant advertises as upscale, but can’t follow through. It’s very casual, I mean shorts and sandals casual. The food is okay but for what the price point is, it should be better. Our server was very lackluster as if he would rather be doing anything else. Here’s a list of places you can go to in Tampa around the same price point that taste better, have a better atmosphere, and better service: 1. Charley’s Steakhouse 2. Coopers Hawk 3. Texas De Brazil 4. Flemings 5. FFS OLIVE GARDEN

    Menu has changed. Their calamari and shrimp were always wonderful. Changed the calamari fries to some mess with hot peppers. And no shrimp available as a main course. What happened to the delicious sourdough bread? The new menu is not an improvement. Will not be back.

    Big Disappointment! $16.00 bowl of Crab Lobster Bisque no visible pieces of either,tasted bland like a butternut colored bowl of heavy cream. $45.00 a plate Lobster Ala Catalan Lobster was overcooked Flavorless and rubbery covered with a small handful of radishs ,cherry tomatoes, sprouts and then sprinked with vinegar. 2 Margaritas $18.00 a piece made with jalapeno, pinapple,Don Julio Blanco that leaves a bad aftertaste and I never thought I would meet a Margarita that I did Not like until now.$6.00 Coors Light to get rid of strong Margarita after taste. Brunch for 2 total with $35.00 tip $209.00

    I’ll start with the good, our server Tyler was very personable and attentive and did a great job. Unfortunately we sat in an overflow room that was far from the main dining area and in desperate need of updating. This, despite asking the hostess to give us a table in the main area because it was my mother’s 80th birthday. She said there was no 4 tops there, but I saw 3 that were available for at least an hour after we were sat. The food was generally good but both fish dishes were a bit overcooked. Not a big deal unless you’re charging $45 per entrée. Our total bill with tip was $525 for four people. That included three cocktails, a $75 bottle of wine, three apps, only three entrées, one salad, and two desserts. If you’re gonna charge those kind of prices everything needs to be on point, which it wasn’t. The ambience in the overflow room was terrible, the food was good but not great, the men’s room was shut down the entire night, and the overall feel of the restaurant is just a bit tired. This is a small note, but they charged for the dessert that they put the birthday candle in, and I haven’t seen that at a restaurant in quite some time… especially on a $500 tab. The restaurant is fortunate that it is attached to the Hyatt Hotel because what they deliver at their price point falls well short of their competitive set in Tampa. They are living off of the hotel guests and it seems like they’ve gotten pretty lazy in terms of guest experience. I’ve been going to oystercatchers for 20+ years, but the visit last night will probably be my last.

    We celebrated our an anniversary and we were treated to a complimentary glass of champagne. Nice touch!! The view is spectacular overlooking the bay and we happened to catch a wonderful sunset. Service was excellent as was the food! Started with Shrimp Cocktail and nice big pieces were served. Bread was warmed and the butter was soft (bonus!). I had the Tomahawk Steak and while it was a bit red for my tastes, it was very tender and flavorful. My wife had the espresso crusted tuna and she was a proud member of the clean plate club!! Solid selection of craft beers, good wine list too. Only negative, and not really a negative since we didn’t order any, but $30 per Stone Crab Claw?? Cmon man. That’s a BIT excessive don’t ya think?! Overall, a great experience and we will go back!!
