It makes a difference. Perfect dishes from the kitchen, helpful waitstaff with personality galore, and an overall caring atmosphere. It's a small place so we weren't able to be seated right away. We left our name, walked the one block to the small town's "Main Drag" for some pleasant shopping, and then returned to be seated with no further delay.... More

We stopped here because we had our dog and thought they might let us bring her on the deck. They did and gave us a nice shady table. But the food! We ordered appetizers to share and were very happy with them. The oysters were crisp and delicious. Who would have thought calamari stuffed with lamb sausage would be good?... More

I enjoyed going to the Oystercatcher, and there were elements that I loved. I loved the adventurous spirit and the way they played with flavor and texture. Some things didn't quite work, but when they did they were fantastic. The scallop appetizer was amazing, and the desserts were great. My entree was good, but my mother had the rabbit and... More

Small restaurant with the kitchen in the middle (but it don't disturb you), some tables inside and some tables at the outside with a beautiful overlook over the bay. The food is definitely great stuff. The mussels - pickled or steamed - are a dream. You should try it. Also all other stuff we have eaten was fresh and tasted... More

We have eaten at many Whidbey restaurants over the years but the Oystercatcher is now our #1 choice. From the PennCove muscle appetizer to the perfectly prepared halibut and fantastic breads this restaurant has set a very high bar for excellence.

The atmosphere was pleasant. The view was not great but not bad with a bit of a view of Penn Cove. The service was excellent. We were caught up in a traffic slow down because of an accident on highway 20 but we called and let them know we would be late. they were expressed their appreciation. They saved our... More

We went for dinner and we were surprised by the quality of food. This is a must stop for a great place to eat. The price is a little high but it is worth it. Start with the calamari and mussels. The menu varies but the rabbit, salmon and cassoulet were incredible. $15 corkage.

This restaurant is superb. It has a fabulous location, a lovely view and delicious food. The wait staff is stellar and they aim to please. Prior to getting our appetizers we were given a complimentary taste. An example of the special service at Oystercatcher is that I wasn't able to eat one of the ingredients in this complimentary taste. I... More
