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 the gift that keeps on giving. We celebrated our 17th anniversary last night and the food never disappoints. Our server was knowledgeable about the oysters we received, friendly and provided great service.

Casual laid back atmosphere. Friendly service. Raw oysters were good and server knew about the different varieties and made good recommendations. Scallops main course was very good. The seared tuna main course was okay except the glutinous lukewarm glob of reheated rice that accompanied it. A restaurant of this caliber should have known better than to serve something in this manner.

Fantastic service and advice on all aspects. Her conversation and backstory on where the oysters were harvested (by Roach!) only made our experience even better. Our waitress showed passion for her job that day, her investment in the story and the companies investment in her too.

Kendall was our server and she made our dining experience at ease. Her recommendations on Oysters, Clams, and light meal from the menu was on the nose. We were in a rush to carch a show and Kendall accomodated to our needs. We will return again for sure.

My second time hosting a group dinner of 12+ people (24ppl this time), and Rodneys staff exceeded expectations again. Service was friendly, fast, accurate, and gracious. A most stop every time we visit Toronto as a couple or with a large group. Can't wait to return!
