We walked in with a group of 4 without a reservation and were seated on the patio. Weather was perfect, so no complaints. Enjoyed lots of oysters, a couple other unique dishes that we don't normally see, and many beers/wines.

We were visiting Toronto to see friends and family before a cruise up the East Coast of the States. We had decided we were going to enjoy oysters and lobsters during our trip, so naturally, in Toronto, that means a visit to Rodney’s. We took...More

Fantastic restaurant, period. Great atmosphere, very knowledgeable staff, and an incredible selection of seasonal seafood. The smoked fish (you can mix'n match -doesn't say that on the menu) is great. The oyster selection is very strong -I recommend trying different regions for comparison. A must...More

When we have them in (which is most days) they are available lunch and dinner. We steam them, and serve them with a drawn butter broth for dipping.

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

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.
