“Wonderful Evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2014 NEW

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 added several special touches that make for a wonderful evening.

“Delicious and Delightful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2014

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.

“Best on Whidbey -- No Question!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2014

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 as everyone works together to make sure you are taken perfect care of. The food is creative -- flavor combinations that you've never had before without being too "out there" to scare away everyday tastes. We have some good restaurants on Whidbey, but nothing comes close to this place. Eat and enjoy . . .

“Yum! a fancy bistro for fine dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2014

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.

“The best restaurant on Whidbey Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2014

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.
