First,my Shrimp and Grits was very good and all seemed please with the food. Just expected a WOW factor but did not get it. Wait staff seemed short handed. It was a special trip to meet out of town friends. All I can say is it was Okay.

Went for hubby's birthday - he's a real oyster lover and he could not rave enough about it. When we first arrived, we went to sit outside to enjoy the last of the sun at 530 and were not approached by wait staff, so not a good start. After we got our own drinks! we then spent a little more... More

We spent my in-laws 50th Wedding Anniversary there for brunch. Great food with several food stations, mimosa served at your table or you can make your own Bloody Mary's. The service was fabulous and the view of Tampa Bay were spectacular. They serve oysters, caviar and fresh shrimp. The deserts were great also. We weren't rushed for our table ,... More

This was our first experience at Oystercatchers for brunch although we've been there several times for dinner. The brunch was excellent. They had a lovely display of oysters on the half shell and shrimp, that also included caviar and smoked salmon. The salads were fresh and many with fresh seafood. There was a carving station, omelet bar and pasta bar.... More

Booked reservations for three to celebrate family closing on a house! Great wine selection, calamari fries appetizers were amazing, unique main course items (coffee and salt crusted sea scallops recommended) and sides items are a must have... splurge for the lobster mac and cheese.

Service was so slow it was excruciating. Could not ever find server. Would wait forever for her to circle back through. She had the whole lower deck area where we sat and everyone was complaining. Couple next to us asked how we got our drinks finally. It was a Saturday night so they should have been adequately staffed. Food was... More

We have been coming to Oystercatchers every year ( since we've lived in Tampa's area) for my husband's birthday.(He's 69). We could not believe the difference on this visit. We were the first ones to arrive and were seated at the end of the restaurant with no bay view after asking several times for a good window seat. The seafood... More

Grouper sandwich and mahi tacos were fantastic. Very good calamari fries for appetizer. Service was okay. Very good beer and wine selection. Didn't see any beers on tap.
