I made reservations at the Oystercatcher for 3 couples last weekend, all fine food lovers. We were not disappointed! Beginning with the delicious octopus appetizer, followed by the incredible halibut entree, and ending with the lovely beignets, we were fully satisfied and delighted!

Great restaurant and great view. I enjoyed sitting out on the terrace alone, finding peace and police, overlooking the water. The soups are absolutely excellent, and by report, the oysters as well. Home baked breads.
