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 have not been to Rodney’s I’m close to 10 years- since I lived in Vancouver. The meal and service was exactly as I had remembered and hoped it would still be. Fantastic selection of dishes and I can’t wait to come back. Thanks for a great night!

Thank you for a great night! The staff were fantastic, the night was as "normal" as could be. Thank you for following the necessary cautionary measures to make the night stress-free. The oysters, drinks and lobster rolls were fantastic!

The restaurant was fantastic during these covid times and they made us feel every safe. They had us fill out a form for the purposes of contact tracing, which were happy to do. The tables in the patio were very well spaced out. We saw the waitress wiping every of the table and chairs down so we knew they were taking the precautions seriously. Service and food were fantastic, as always. We will continue to come back again and again!

The service was impeccable. We were welcomed and treated warmly the entire evening. It was nice to chat with the servers and and see some familiar faces. Oysters were delicious and fresh. The shrimp in the shrimp cocktail was a bit overdone though.

The food is phenomenal, Service Very good. The only problem was very load music at our table. But at our request waiter was kind enough to lower the music volume. Who likes Oysters, this is the place must to go. I am visiting this restaurant for the last 15 years and I am always positively surprised with the selection and quality of Oysters they serve.
