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.

We came on Thursday August 2 to celebrate my fiancé's birthday and we both couldn't have been more pleased with our experience. I am so sad that I can't remember our server's name but he was incredible. I haven't had service like that in a long time and he made our experience very special. He was very knowledgeable able about the oysters on the menu and his recommendations based on the little he knew about our palate preferences was incredible. He was very sweet, kind and attentive to all of our needs. He knew that we were in the mood to share our meals (without even asking) and brought our main dishes on a wooden plank. It was fantastic! I loved that! At the end, he recommended the key lime pie and it was on the house for my fiancé's birthday. So sweet. The food - to die for. I have been to many seaside towns for lobster rolls and crab cakes and I have to say this meal was by far the best. I very much enjoyed the amount of lobster and crab in both dishes and the flavours were perfect. My fiancé and I also commented on the atmosphere and that it was very nice. Lighting was perfect as it was not too dark and the costal theme was classy. We were seated right beside the wall of signed oyster shells and it was nice to see all the different people who had signed them. Overall, one of the best dining experiences we both have had in a very long time. Thank you for making our day special!

Perfect as always. Oysters were great, bottles of rose were well chosen by the restaurant and very cold and the soups, featured mains were great and the mousse and lime pie were a great ending.

Woody was the name of our waiter. He was very knowledgeable on all things of the sea. Thoroughly explained about the selection of oysters available on the half shell. He made it easy for us to make a selection. We order 2 dozen oysters ( a various mix ), along with some St. George’s scallops and a lobsta roll. It was fantastic, all of it. I even picked up their t-shirt. All in all Rodney’s was great. We’d certainly make the drive in from Niagara again to dine again. And to add to it there was public parking directly across the street!

Everything was great. I am new to the whole oyster thing and the server, I didn't catch her name but she said she had a top ten finish in the oyster shucking contest, was fantastic and really knew her oysters. I had her pick out some for me to try and they were fantastic.

Had an absolutely lovely time with a friend from Saskatchewan. All she wanted was oysters. The gentleman that helped us was unbelievably knowledgeable and silly gracious. Which I love. We got passed to another gentleman who was equally lovely. Well done Rodney’s. I knew you’d be smashing. ❤️
