One the basis of the limited sample of one meal - this is a superb choice for a nice upscale meal. Location facing the bay is beautiful, decor is very comfortable, service is perhaps the best I have had in restaurant in quite a long time, and the food is simply outstanding - everything about my meal was spot on!

Save your money. There are so many nice restaurants in Tampa / St Pete and this for sure is not one of them. Just a run of the mill food, Cracker Barrell would have been better by far . Don't mind the price but the food just wasn't even close. Save your money !

The most varied brunch I have ever eaten. Every item is fresh. From shrimp to caviar to roast beef to eggs, sausage, bacon, and fresh fruit. Every item is delicious. The drinks are exquisite and plentiful.

Great venue, associated with the Grand Hyatt, but serving the public with one of the better vistas in Tampa. Busy cubed. Reserved at 6:30, and arrived half hour early but had to wait til 6:40 to be seated. Probably our fault, and I'd advise trying for an earlier time, as sunsets are very attractive, Once seated, the service, personal attention,... More

I hadn't eaten at this restaurant in several years and wanted a great place for a date. It did not disappoint. The setting is one of the best around. Get there at sunset for a spectacular viewing. The atmosphere was updated and clean. Service was attentive and never too far away.

We were going to Tampa for a weekend and I had researched restaurants. Oystrcatchers was highly rated and it was perfect since we were staying at the Grand Hyatt where it's located. It's located away from the main building but there's a wooden walkway through lovely foliage almost to the restaurant. I'm not sure why but when it ends you... More

We were staying at the grand Hyatt, made a last minute reservation for 5 and walked over from the hotel and we check in and the hostess says that it was going to be 20-25 mins, well that's were it all started to go to hell. Roughly 60 mins we finally get seated and that's because this place either was... More

Located behind Grand Hyatt on the water is Oyster Catchers. 5 minutes to airport this is a restaurant I have been to many times. Our group of 4 sat outside and ordered wine and appetizers. It took over a hour for the food to arrive! Oysters on half shell, maine lobster and bone marrow were the apps. All were good,... More

I came here on the last day of a business trip with coworkers and it was exactly what we needed! The service was amazing, from the second we pulled up (thank you valet!) to the moment we left we felt like our every need was met. The drink menu is incredible - they have a wine menu online but their... More

We have had consistently good meals here. The fish is definitely fresh and local. The outside dining is pleasant if Tampa isn't too hot and the views are great! We had wonderful service.
