    This place was one of my favorite to visit in the area, and I am a local! From the moment we entered, to the walk out, every staff member was hospitable and pleasant; smiles all around. The drink menu was well crafted and thoughtful for the season. Our dinner was fresh and flavorful, not a thing that we didn’t enjoy. To top it off, the sunset was memorable and an exquisite way to spend the evening. We will return for another experience, cheers to the team at Oyster catchers!

    Overpriced and the food was sub-par. One diner actually said that a burger at the racetrack that he had previously was much better than the $34 wagyu burger here. The $44 grouper was drenched in a heavy sauce and you couldn’t even taste the fish. The snapper was served whole and was lacking flavor, as well. The snapper and grouper were served without accompanying sides. The whipped potatoes ordered separately arrived cold and with the cheeses still whole and not blended in. A very disappointing last meal for our trip. $355 for a party of four for not very good food. Ugh. One diner commented that Subway would’ve been preferred and head nods ensued from the other three people.

    Outstanding food and service!! We had two excellent and memorable dinners here this week, with great service and ambiance. My gal is a chef and we were hugely impressed with all aspects of the restaurant. Highly recommend the oysters, Scallops, and Tuna, but also several great sides: the polenta with mushrooms, broccolini, caesar salad, fabulous truffle fries and mocha cheesecake. Chef Alessandro was very personable and talked with many of the tables, and had some great suggestions! Servers Bob and Zak were both excellent too.

    It is sad how much we spend for a night out to get mediocre food, service and have to sit in a loud half full dining room. And it astonishes me about the wine prices and you buy a $100 bottle of wine and they do not decant it or aerate it for you. This was my first time I think in my life I have been to Oystercatchers.. I am pretty sure it was the last. The valet team were fantastic, it was raining and they were out in the rain making it happen that was the one bright spot that was spoiled by being ignored by the hostesses and then she walks off turns and says follow me not by my name or anything like I should have read her mind.

    There are so many other fabulous restaurants in Tampa. Used to love this place but it has gone downhill. The seafood bouillabaisse in sourdough was the worst! Who puts a broth based soup in a bread bowl that becomes soggy and gross. It would have been better to serve it as soup in a bowl and provide sourdough bread on the side. There was literally only one shrimp, one scallop, two mussels, two clams, and small strips of calamari with a small sliver of grouper. Worst price value I have ever seen and not what I would have expected from this place that used to be so good. This place is in desperate need of an overhaul.

    Our experience at Oystercatchers was pleasant. Service was great. Our server was friendly and provided recommendations. I appreciate that he was not constantly checking on us yet we always had all we needed. Drinks were good but not memorable. The valet attendant was phenomenal. It was pouring and he was attentive to all members of our party.

    The food was absolutely horrible. We had to send a steak back three times for being under cooked. The lobster was over cooked. The crab cake was mushy with NO LUMP CRAB! It gave a tuna fish texture. Nothing has seasoning. And we waited an hour for food with no updates from the server. We will never go back especially for the price.

    The view of the water was nice and our server was fantastic! While most of what we ordered was great, I didn’t care for my entree - seafood trio - because it only had one scallop, and the jumbo shrimp were tough to chew. The shrimp were so huge - maybe that’s why they were a tougher consistency. The brussel sprouts were soft not crispy. On the positive side, the lobster bisque was delicious, the polenta with mushrooms was amazing, and for dessert, the key lime pie was the best I’ve ever had! So unique! We will definitely come again.

    Worst service I have ever received. Waited almost two hours for entrees that never arrived. The manager took care of the appetizer and two drinks we ordered, but we were never told how backed up the kitchen was and we’re promised our food four separate times. Horrible dining experience. Go elsewhere.

    Our server Zack was amazing he was very knowledgeable and just seemed super cool I really enjoyed having him as my server. I ordered the sea bass fish and chips style and the sauce on the plate paired perfectly with the fish and the potato’s. We also ordered the calamari and it was the best I’ve had the garnish was also very beautiful the chef did a great job on it. It was my 3 year anniversary with my girlfriend and we were offered a toast on the house, we had to say no because we don’t drink but it was really nice to go for our anniversary.
