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.

I could only put 5 stars above so here are some more ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️. Rodney’s helped me put together the most amazing evening to propose to my girlfriend. Everything was planned and executed to a T. We had an Oyster shucking 101 and oyster tasting. This was our first time at Rodney’s and definitely will not be our last. Thanks again to the great staff who helped me create such a memorable night. 🥂

I had a "shell" worth $600 and used it over many years of visiting Toronto from Calgary. Each time I visited, the "Front-of-House" team acknowledged the shell and made me feel really welcome. I sat at the bar at each and every visit. The service and attitude, including the warmth of the staff, was wonderful. The was top-notch. Thank you for all these years of being welcomed. My shell is now finished, but I'll be back, hopefully with friends next time.

If you are nit in love with oysters i am not sure this is the place for you. If you ARE in love with oysters go directly to Rodneys. And after you enjoy your oysters, order the crab cakes. They are phenomenal.

Simply amazing! I hosted a "5 anchor client" (high profile) here and they were blown away by the attentive service and the quality of the food and wine. I will be coming back time and time again!! A huge thank you to Bronwen, the manager/co-owner who made our visit unique and brought the experience up to a whole new level. Thank you as well to the crew - the oysters were amazing, extremely well presented and served with an explanation of where they were from and what flavor profile to expect - you simply wont find service like this anywhere else in Canada. I would rate Rodney's as a 6 out of 5 if I could - THANK YOU!

Our waitress was fantastic, we are Scottish & she was telling us how she’d studied in Edinburgh for a while which was nice to hear. The oysters were the best we’ve ever had, the lobster (roll & fresh) were delicious & the smoked salmon open sandwich was amazing value. Lovely desserts & a complimentary digestif topped off an excellent experience. Thank you guys!
