We caught an Uber to Oystercatches and were thrilled! First, my team (Clemson) was staying at the Grand Hyatt so all the waiters, etc. were decked out in their Clemson gear. Then, we got a waiter and I literally let him order me all of his favorites. Stick with the simple fish menu - as I had the grilled snapper... More

It was a great surprise to find that the Grand Hyatt and Oystercatchers were playing host to the Clemson Tigers during the National Championship. The entire staff was in orange (many with the Tiger Paw) and the excitement in the restaurant was palpable. We had good food and a really nice team waiting on us. Enjoyed it very much.

We had not been here for dinner in a long time, so we wanted a special seafood dinner on New Year's Eve. My husbands dinner, he had the scallops, was okay. I had ordered the grouper, and that dish was very much overdone and therefore dry and not flaky like it should be. The plates could have been a little... More

Our dinner experience was very pleasing even though we arrived after sunset so we had no view of the Bay. The food preparation, presentation, flavor and service were all top-notch. There are no vegetarian options on the menu, but it was absolutely no problem for the chef to prepare a pasta dish for me with sun dried tomatoes, spinach, garlic... More

Took family to Oystercatchers for Sunday Brunch and we were blown away. While not cheap was still a great value for what you receive. All you can drink, Bloody Marie's and Mimosas, raw bar and soooooooo much more. Like I said Amazing food, drink and location. Be sure to make reversation! See you there!

A wide variety of seafood sauced and cooked to your order is the main feature of this elegant restaurant in a forest setting near downtown Tampa. Our service was very attentive but a little too pumped with energy, stopping very frequently to check our orders, wine and drinks. My Tuna Tartare Poke was quite lovely to look at but the... More

... because we love the location. Great to walk around before/after meal and drinks. Oysters were great while rest of meal was well below average and disappointing. DO NOT get the lobster mac & cheese or the overwhelming fishy salad.

Dined here last night and was somewhat disappointed. First the good: 1)Valets are always friendly and engaging; 2) Server (Deb) was terrific; 3) Table had great view of the bay and sunset. The meals on the other hand had too many problems. The calimare app was delicious--tender, lightly battered but the sauce was too sweet. Two of the four salads... More

Wife and I took my sister here for dinner, heard good comments. The service was very good, wasn't happy with the menu choices. Sister thought the food was excellant, wife and I thought it was ok, but highly over-priced. I would have rather sat outside for the sunset, drink some cocktails, and just ordered some appetizers.
