We sat outside and enjoyed the summer weather and the view of the Inner Harbor, then ordered small plates. The calamari was fine. Wine was okay, although not inexpensive. I tried a martini made with local vodka and was disappointed. It tasted like the ice...More

Why the Tree house and Oyster Catcher need to blast the harbour with poor music at the same time defies logic. They blast away at the same time around 6-8 pm. The food is mediocre, service ok, nothing to come back for. Sign said brunch...More

The Oystercatcher is located on a scenic harbour, much like a movie setting. It has a great menu, but be sure to find out the cost of the drinks; the bill may surprise you.
