Went on Friday night with two couples. Our waiter Matt could not be better. The oyster selection was diverse and we were totally satisfied. We had a fantastic time and if you like oysters; definitely go here. Hope you get Matt!

Had a delicious time sampling oysters from multiple coasts, with some mussels and wine thrown in the mix. Fun for group food sharing. Loud, fun 80s music kept the mood upbeat. When MJ came in everyone in the Lobby was bobbing their head and singing....More

Went there last night. Wasn't a great night. Our waitress was no where to be seen. Walked around and found her talking to the bar staff and dancing near the bar. I guess she wasn't happy that she had to work on a Saturday night...More

Had a family lunch at Rodney's Oyster House. Food was tasty, a little heavy on the fried batter overall, but the sauces were excellent additions and we loved them. Very attentive staff even though we were on the patio outside. Would visit again.

If you like oysters I would definitely recommend this place. They had about 20-25 different types, mostly Eastern Canadian and New England varieties. Staff was very helpful in sorting out some based on our preferences. Then snacked on some other small plates and soups, was...More

Andy; We don't have a standard Surf and Turf dish on our menu. We will put one on our 'White Plate Specials' from time to time, but in general, if that's your hankering, bring a friend, and order a lobster (1.5-2lbs) and a... More

First, happy pending birthday. We're about a 5 minute stumble from the Thompson - very close, and I'm sure they'll take good care of you. We don't typically broil oysters (we do something like that with live scallops, but... More

Rodney Clark has been offering oysters to the masses in Toronto for over 30 years. Our selection changes daily, but we carry on average 12-18 different varieties from around the world. We also strive to offer the finest in fresh seafood, sourced from sustainable fisheries - as we work primarily with fresh product, you'll have to come down and see what's coming through our doors this week.
