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.

Our reservation was for 8pm on a Thursday. Not terribly busy. Our server was excellent. Explained the menu very well and took time with us for our oyster selections. As usual, the food was exceptional. Particularly fantastic selection of oysters. Loved the Rodney PEI choice; well done! Thanks for a great evening. You’ll see us again soon!

I booked my reservation online and the only availability was 4:3opm. Once we got there, we were welcome well at the front desk, but the restaurant was EMPTY. We were there until 6pm and no one was there. The service was not good at all as all the servers were at the back chillin. Not impressed at all. We ordered 20 Oysters and it cos us with tip in and around $90. That way to expensive considering they are big on Oysters. This was for sure a one time !

The only negative feedback I have is that we had to wait 25 minutes even though we had made a reservation in advanced, while they were very apologetic, it was still a long time to wait.

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.
