Last night my wife & I returned to the Oystercatcher and had a wonderful evening in this small & cozy place which is becoming one of our favorites! Our dinner of fall squash soup, Willowood pork and braised rabbit ragout were wonderful choices and made for a very enjoyable dinner. The new owners of the Oystercatcher, Tyler & Sara have... More

Six of us visited the island for three days and dinner one night was at the Oystercatcher.The halibut and pheasant got high marks and the vegetables and soup were equally remarkable. Combined with great service and warm and welcoming ambiance it all added up to a memorable meal.

I eat at a lot of very nice restaurants due to business travel, and the (new) Oystercatcher is as good -- or better -- than the best of them. We've eaten there twice and it's been knock-your-socks-off fantastic both times. Food and drink are superb, and prices are very reasonable when you consider the top-shelf quality. Service is also outstanding... More

I had mussels and a grilled radiccio salad - nice view, great service. A bit more pricey than some other local spots, and more petite portions, but certainly popular and nice view.

I am a dedicated foodie and have lived on Whidbey Island for many years. The Oystercatcher under chef Tyler Hansen is the best restaurant on Whidbey Island, period. Great service, a creative menu, and wonderful well-prepared food.

My wife and I had dinner here. The food is creative, beautifully presented, and delicious. However the dishes are small (price is not). This is probably a healthy choice for the diner and minimizes wasted food - still a bit larger servings would have been appreciated.

Spent our anniversary with the fine staff and dining experience at the Oystercatcher this past weekend. The food was over the top, atmosphere with our outdoor deck table, view of the beautiful Penn Cove and the wonderful staff made for a delicious and memorable experience in every way. Their farm-to-table mantra is very much appreciated and the local fresh ingredients... More

What a surprise, didn't expect this amazing food tasting!!! I grew up in France, I'm a baker myself, and trust me, I know good food when... More

Because local ingredients are used here this was the main determining factor to have lunch here with friends on a sunny day. This is a sweet little place with some work to do. The service while friendly and knowledgeable was very slow. Although somewhat busy but not full we had trouble getting our server's attention. The three of us ordered... More

We enjoyed an amazing dinner last night at Oystercatcher. Everything we ate was locally sourced or made in the kitchen from the fresh focaccia to the salted caramel ice cream. The food matched or bested far more expensive meals we have had at top-rated restaurants in Seattle. The service was friendly and knowledgeable and because we had an early reservation... More
