Another indecisive review. I want to go five stars, but something is holding me back to four. I guess that makes it a 4.5 star, and since I won't round up to 5 (5 is reserved only for the best), I have to go 4. We came here for a Sunday brunch. I'm not sure what my problem is though.... More

We went last night for my sisters birthday..service was wonderful,the waiters were great,and the place is beautiful. My only complaint is that the food is way over priced. There stone crab claws are $32.00 for 1 claw that's just absurd. I understand that restaurants have to mark up the food but for 1 stone crab claw with nothing fancy about... More

Don't get me wrong, this place is beautiful. My husband and I visited Oystercatchers while on a recent trip. We started with appetizers and a glass of wine and followed with dinner. If I had to change one thing about our night at Oystercatchers it would be ordering dinner. Our dinner was just ok-nothing special. We both got fish for... More

Second time I've been at Oystercatchers. Went on a Sunday night. The restaurant was almost empty. Service was great. The waiter - Robert - was attentive, informative, and had a nice sense of humor. The food was good, not great. The fish was a little overcooked and dry. Perhaps I was just a little tired from traveling because my last... More

The tuna melt is the BEST I’ve ever had, made with fresh tuna and avocado and placed in a sinfully delicious brioche. The calamari fries and dipping sauce were also delicious. Shout out to Andrew for the great service by the pool. Restaurant has a veranda overlookig the bay. Great spot to watch a romantic sunset.

The setting and service were very good. The selection of food was huge. The quality was decent, but a bit expensive for what it is.

We went with my daughter in her husband for this Thanksgiving buffet that was just incredible. We sat by the ocean all day and ate and drank while we watched the sunset. So many different types of food. Breakfast foods, seafood, italian, salads and of course; traditional turkey and fix ins. We ate slow, we were not rushed, the service... More
