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.

Amazing experience! This was our first visit and we sat at the bar. Where you can see the waiter shuck the oysters. They are all very knowledgeable about the type of oysters and describe their differences. Definite do again. Want to try the different items on the menu. Our first trip, we wanted to to try only the oysters. News: they also shuck and pack the oysters for you to take home.

As always the food was great however our waiter disappeared, a new server seemed to be filling in after a delay and we seemed to have been forgotten about. It was difficult to pay our bill even. Sadly the service put a damper on the birthday celebration we were there to commemorate. It has been the restaurant of choice for the last several years for our son’s birthday. Perhaps we’ll choose a different restaurant next time.

This was our second visit to Rodney's and it was just as amazing as the first visit. The oysters are great but a must have when you visit is the Tuna Tartar. It is our favourite dish and when looking around the bar, most other people were ordering it as well.

I do not have our server's name, but she was blond, with glasses, and said she had seen service as both a shucker and a waitress. She was very attentive and excellent in explaining the oysters we had chosen and the various condiments. We look forward to our next visit to Rodney's, where the food and service is always the best.

We celebrated my Mum's BD at Rodney's last night. I've been eating shucked bivalves at Rodney' for 30 years, but never ordered the Dungeness crab till last night. It was yummy, buttery, deliciousness... such luxurious food from our oceans. Feeling privileged. Thanks as ever to friendly Rodney's team.
