Had the lobster roll. With bacon! Delicious. Oyster slap jack soup. Yummy. The best though we're the fresh oysters in the shell. Some fresh lemon and a little horseradish amazing! Incredible variety of oysters. Our server was knowledgeable and friendly. All around amazing experience.

Rodney Clark has been offering oysters to the masses in Toronto since 1987. 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.
