It's an amazing place, what can you say? It's always a fantastic experience eating fresh ingredients. Prices are okay, be prepared to spend fifty dollars a person if you enjoy oysters but also want their other boiled shelled creatures and crustaceans and side dishes and...More

Another fascinating food experience on King West (I wonder why they call that street a tourist trap). Rodney’s design with dimmed lights, edgy posters and a cave like indoor space resembles a trip to dodgy London dungeons, but that illusion fades once you step onto...More

I go to Rodney's for Oysters. They have seafood, but it's really about the oysters. For non-oyster lovers, there's enough on the menu to get by, but I go for their expertise in oysters, for the east coast right-off-the-boat ambiance, and a casual good time....More

This is the best place for Oysters in Toronto. Great quality and lots of variety. Do note it's a pricey place where the bill adds up quickly. Make sure to make reservations and do note that they sometimes won't let you split bills.

We stopped here for an oyster appetizer. A little expensive, but well worth the money for the quality and freshness. Lives up to its reputation of having the best oysters in Toronto.

Delicious!!! The oyster selection is great and having a selection you can really see the difference in flavours. This is my preferred restaurant in toronto for oysters. It is, however, very different from the Vancouver Rodneys - Vancouver is loud, lively and boisterous... Toronto is...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.
