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.

Like the title says, this is a great upscale restaurant with wonderful sunset views. Food is fresh and high quality. Great and friendly waitstaff. The bartender was nice and knew about the beers and wines that were carried (which can be pretty rare) and she was very attentive. I'd recommend for anyone traveling solo or as a couple.

If you're looking for a place with a great view and atmosphere as priority, this is a great place. The food was pretty good from what I remember, but it didn't blow me away.

I guess this place gotta be one of the best in the Tampa region. Quietly situated at the area of Grand Hyatt of Bay Drive. Beautiful view and setting. Friendly service and excellent food. Obviously go for the seafood. Limited but well chosen wine list ( if you are in spending mood try the Kistler ( Chardonnay) and the Silver... More
