Fun, high energy and always entertaining service! This place is the first place I recommend to out of town guests or for a good girls night. The Rodney caesars are by far the BEST in town! The Yaletown location usually has a line up at night, but it is well worth the wait.

Went for the happy hour of $1.50 a shuck. Good oysters. A glass of wine poured to the brim in a weird glass. Overall we enjoyed and would certainly return.

Ate here with a group of business colleagues. The atmosphere was casual and friendly. Food was OK, but not spectacular. I wouldn't hesitate to go back. Go early for dinner. The Gastown district can get a little creepy as night sets in.

I have no idea why we haven't been back here for way too long. we don't live in Vancouver so when we do come, there are so many places to try out. we are slowly realizing tho' that if we find a good place, why keep trying others? Rodney's remains fun, servers wearing shorts, wine served in water glasses, seating... More

I am not really a seafood person, especially not for oyster; but since this restaurant was highly recommended by a friend, I decided to give it a try, and I am glad I did! We went there during happy hour, so it's a bit cheaper than the regular costs. We ordered raw oyster, mussels, garlic shrimp, pan fried oyster, and... More

Love fresh oysters? This is the place for you. The early bird gets the Happy Hour price which is a significant saving. You also get a slightly more subdued experience for us older crowd as it tends to get VERY busy in the evening. The servers are very friendly and all the meals are beautifully prepared and presented and delectable.... More
