We enjoyed a quick lunch before leaving the property to travel home. The food was better than I hoped. Starting with the crab cakes, I know, everyone does this. The Chef here managed to make some that taste unlike any I've had. Fish tacos were out of this world. Smokey taste with seasonings, so simple, so amazingly good, I could... More

Birthday lunch celebration over looking the beautiful scenic Tampa Bay. Spicy calamari were simply delicious as appetizer, and could easily become a main dish with their various selection of salads. Others enjoyed the shrimp and grit combo. Service quality was well attentive and capable of breaking out separate checks for large parties. Highly recommend for special occasions or positive dining... More

Ive eaten here several times. The fish is always fresh. Steak is good but there are better steak houses in Tampa area. Id eat here for a special evening, and count on desert as well. Service is great, wine list is very good.

A party of ten of us enjoyed dinner here last night. The ambience is absolutely beautiful inside and out. Very modern and airy. We had an assortment of appetizers including fabulous Oysters Rockefeller, calamari, jumbo shrimp cocktail and crab cakes. I also shared an order of ahi poke before our entrees arrived. I had blackened Black Grouper for dinner served... More

Next time just ask at the front door to be seated outside and if we have a table that can accommodate your party,... More

This place 's by exceeded our expectations! On vacation in Tampa and wanted something delicious that had seafood. I'm not a huge fan of seafood so I tried their beef filet which was delicious and juicy. But my favorite part was the lobster mac and cheese!!! I would come back here solely for that. We also had the seafood grill... More

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
