Don't go for a wide range of menu items but do go for some of the best oysters in the city. Licensed with beer and wine only.

One of my Favs

Ive been going to rodneys for several years. In my opinion you can't get a better oyster west of PEI than at rodneys. They're always fresh and professionally shucked. Im reading reviews that mention poor service, but have never experienced that myself, always average to great. I highly recommend for the seafood lover. If you or your dining partner isnt into seafood, definitley not the spot for you.

Food was good, but service ranged from non-existant to very rude. At some restaurants you can get away with that; this is definitely not one of them. Now that I have been looking around at reviews online, it seems that a lot of people have had this experience. People should vote with their feet and stop going to this place.

Rodney's is always exceptional. We've been fans for 30 years and never get tired of gong when we visit Toronto. Staff is very knowledgeable and always fun to be around. Atmosphere is great. The oysters are magnificent. Can;t say enough about Rodney's. Have sent many people there over the years and no one has been disappointed EVER.

Great casual place for excellent and well sourced seafood. The waiter disappeared mid-service without warning, to "scrub oysters", got back before just before end of meal. Everyone had a fun time. Always a classic.

The food and venue were great but it was the service that truly stood out. It was seriously amazing!! The best service I've ever experienced and I mean that. They were so helpful and friendly. We had a really big group - and one kid actually threw up - and they just smiled and whisked it away. I know there was a lot of hustling involved, from separate cheques, to serving cake, to appetizers and mains. I have nothing but a glowing review for all involved. I will spread the word - thank you from a very grateful host, the impeccable work made my job easy and everyone had a blast.

I couldn't have asked for a better meal, and the service was fantastic. Everyone in the group was thrilled with the food, and they all commented on how the cuddy room was perfect for a big party like ours. I highly recommend Rodney's!

Great food in a classic place! Decor is a little casual for the prices. Could use some updating. Service was good but waiter was a little too cocky and pushy with the specials. Lobster roll was a little plain for the price. It's an expensive meal but really good seafood and oysters!

We were there for our first time on a rainy Monday evening, so it was not busy, but the atmosphere was still great. All of the staff we encountered were great, from the young lady that showed us to our table, to our waiter, to the other young lady who brought our dishes out. Our waiter was Mike - such a great guy!! He knew the menu very well and his help with deciding what to order was very much appreciated. We ordered the smoked fish platter to start, with the sea scallops and lobster as our mains. Mike then brought us lime pie on the house for dessert because they had run out of one of the main dishes we wanted to order. All of it was so good!! We'll definitely be back.

Our experience at Rodney's was excellent. We had made reservations and arranged for one person in our group to have a "vegetarian" meal. We were seated promptly. Our server knew his stuff and was very welcoming. He explained the items on the menu answered our questions well and lightly joked with all of us, throughout the evening! We loved everything about our experience atRodneys!

My boyfriend and I had an incredible experience last night at Rodney's. Our waitress was so helpful and recommended awesome dishes. I wish I could remember her name so I could give her credit. She took time to wish my boyfriend a happy birthday based on the comment I left on my booking. She was thoughtful and welcoming and it was a great environment. Will definitely return!
