Centrally located on Whidbey Island in Coupeville, the Oystercatcher has proudly served simply good food for almost 20 years. Chef Tyler Hansen and his team create a harmonious farm-to-table menu to showcase all that the island, and the region, has to offer. Historically, the island provided an abundance of food, with the prairie serving as a sacred place for those who lived here. We honor that tradition at the restaurant today by working with the farmers who continue to keep that heritage alive on the island.
