“Look no further”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2014

When we stayed at the hotel and ate here twice. Both times we were given a table with a bay view, so were able to watch the sunset. The staff we well trained, knowledgeable, and friendly. The atmosphere is casual making it a relaxing experience. The menu was varied featuring fish, shellfish, and steaks. Each time the dishes were perfectly cooked and accompanied by lightly cooked vegetables. They also had a good range of wines by the the glass. We were very pleased with the food and the service on both occasions. On one occasion the waiter suggested splitting a side salad, which was the perfect portion size for us. A nice touch was the smoked sea salt served with the sourdough bread. I do not think you could have a better dinning experience in the area.

“Overall very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2014

We stayed at the Grand Hyatt for three nights. On Friday, we dined at Oystercatchers. The food was excellent. We ordered the ahi tatika for an appetizer. While it was very tasty, there was a very small portion of tuna for the $16 price. My husband enjoyed the snapper and I enjoyed the grilled shrimp (only 6 shrimp for $30) with the addition of a crab cake. While all was delicious, it was a bit on the pricey side. Also, service for dinner was okay.

On Sunday we did brunch. Absolutely delicious. We have had brunch before and brought two other couples with us. Service was impeccable and brunch options superb. Although a bit pricey at $50 per person, it was well worth the money and we will definitely return when in Tampa. Fresh seafood, pasta bar, sushi, carving table, endless bubbles and bloody marys, etc. were all great. They don't have a dessert table, but a dessert room, which is spectacular for those with a sweet tooth. Definitely recommend reservations and a room at the Grand Hyatt.

“Not cheap but nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014

Prices were high for what you get but the view and the food were excellent,The grouper was delicious and the crab and lobster salad's were very good also. The oyster's were blue point and I felt were very good also. Service was delightful and the staff at the hotel where we parked were very helpful and walked us to the path to take to the restaurant. You can park at the restaurant but we enjoyed the walk. We were there for lunch.

Great food, friendly service, awesome view of the water. Wish I knew that they had a dock space you can fish off of before I traveled down there, though...

“A Great Mid-Range Choie”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014

As noted in other reviews, the Tampa Grand Hyatt offers their guests a full range of restaurant choices. This was their mid range choice.

The restaurant is short walk from the hotel, following a lovely boardwalk out to a beach location on the bay.

The seating was spacious, the decor well implemented casual elegance, and the service was outstanding. In particular, the Maitre d' was ever watchful of the needs of everyone in the property.

A wide choice of seafood was offered. It was consistently fresh and well prepared. Never outstanding. However, always very good.

Would definitely go back.
