So delicious! From the outside I was expecting more of a beach bar type atmosphere. I was pleasantly surprised that this is a nice restaurant with an open wood fire grill. The scallops were excellent, as was the fresh catch snapper.

We had really a nice experience having dinner at this restaurant during our stay in Tampa at the Gran Hyatt Tampa bay. Staff is very nice and courteous, and food is really gourmet style, well done, precisely seasoned.

The brunch and the value for money for the brunch are outstanding at Oystercatchers, we did not feel the need to move out of the hotel and look for alternate venues. Highly recommended.

Oystercatchers has the freshest and best seafood in the Tampa area... It's tucked away as part of the Hyatt complex but has a great view once you find your way there. The shellfish is all super fresh - oysters are a great start. The blackened Mahi is my go-to with a few grilled shrimp as an add-on. A little on... More

This restaurant is right on the water so you can watch the tide roll in and out. Fresh seafood is on display and is wonderfully prepared. Can't beat the view.

Sunday brunch has been highly touted although some cited a higher price ($75 pp) than what we actually experienced ($55 pp w/o tip). We were more than satisfied with everything from food to drinks to service to view! Plentiful seafood options, a great custom pasta station, an omlet station manned by a very deft chef, beautiful rib eye station and... More

During business conference at Grand Hyatt, our group of six made the trek to nearby Oyster Catchers. We did not realize this restaurant was associated with the hotel but no matter. The freshness of the dishes was apparent. Very good appetizers included calamalri and scallop cerviche. Blackened Grouper was nicely prepared. Only reservation was prices did not always match the...

Restaurant is a distance from the Grand Hyatt, but there is a shuttle and on cool days, it's a nice walk from the hotel. Great food selection and very friendly service
