My family went here on a rainy Thursday night, we had a nice secetion of oysters which were opened perfectly, we also ordered 2 different prawn dishes and a lobster, all were cooked nicely and had a super fresh flavor. The only let down was our waiter, little things like asking for water and bread, i have a feeling he... More

A business associate from out of town took us for lunch at Black + Blue Restaurant a week before and we had the oysters. We thought we would impress him by taking him to Rodney's for more oysters. It backfired. The oysters were dark and small, unlike what we had the week before. The server was arrogant. I had to... More

This was our first time at this restaurant. When we arrived at 7:30 pm, the place was packed and noisy. That's not bad, except the only spot they had immediately available were two seats at the bar. We were warmly greeted by the server and he made excellent recommendations. My friend had scallops and I had pan fried oysters. They... More

Great place to visit--great food and drinks, friendly staff and we loved the oldy sing a long tunes playing. A bit noisy, and we learned that reservations are a MUST even on weeknights in October if you want a table, but sitting at the bar was nice too!

Great atmosphere, food was good, oysters amazing. Service let's the place down, the servers are young guys who don't provide a good service. Our server was arrogant and quite rude. Spoilt the meal. Wouldn't return or recommend.

If you want to have good oyster in Vancouver, Rodney's is the place to go. They have different kind of fresh oysters with different sauces. The service is excellent and the staff is really friendly! The clam chowder soup has the most clam I've ever had. The seafood salad there is also amazing. The only thing we didn't like as... More

Amazing food and amazing service. if you can manage to get a table that is.... The wait is 100% worth it. I had the garlic prawns, pan fried oysters, and obviously the famous fanny bay oysters.

This restaurant serves great oysters. They are fresh, moist and there are several sauces you can choose to put on your oysters. Unfortunately, the service is not so great. All the pretty boys are very busy with themselves, ignoring the customers and reacting arrogantly when you ask for something. They also do not tell you which oysters belong to the... More
