We came for the Oystercatcher's Christmas dinner and it far exceeded our expectations. The set four-course menu was so diverse and unique with amazing flavors perfectly combined and perfectly paired with wines and an after-dinner cocktail. We have never had a less than perfect meal...More

I have eaten at the Oystercatcher several times for lunch, and each time it has been very good. Meals have included the PoBoy, Cassoulet, and a Reuben like sandwich. They make their own bread which is excellent. The dining room is small and cozy, service...More

Two different people we met suggested Oystercatcher and it was very good. They served delicious vegetarian but you don’t have to go vegetarian. The bread was excellent. The soup we had was delicious. It is an excellent spot for a special meal out.

Stumbled upon this gem of an eatery while driving through Whidbey. And looking for lunch. Totally unassuming from the outside. Once inside we were enveloped in great aromas and a terrific menu with very attentive staff. Atmosphere was wonderful, open kitchen and casual. Food was...More

The Oystercatcher was so good we ate there twice in our 4 days on the island. Truly exceptional preparations. Inventive combinations that were not artificially pretentious. They just worked. Like the Mussels with creme fraiche, garlic, wine and herbs. We've had mussels all over the...More

Ambience: we heard this place offered an upscale cuisine, so we were surprised with its simple, clean but unassuming décor. There is an outdoor patio area with a partial view of Penn Cove but we chose to eat inside. Service: very welcoming, friendly, attentive without...More
