Great oysters

We enjoyed a delicious dinner here with excellent Caesars (the drink, not the salad). A tip -- add the spiced vodka that accompanies your oysters to your Caesars. The Coco Curry Shrimp, Slapjack Chowder, and raw oysters were all well prepared with lots of great sauces for your oysters. Fun place.

This is the type of place you would go with a girlfriend and drink sparkling wine and order oysters from the buckets. The oyster bar

I've been to Rodneys in Toronto many times, so visiting Vancouver, when someone suggested this Rodneys, I was hoping for a good experience Not disappointed! The place is smaller than Toronto, with tables packed in on the second floor, but a more open area around the bar and oyster schucking table. We had a nice table for 5 on the... More

We were strolling along and stopped at Rodney's for lunch. What a great place to eat. We had seafood chowder which was delicious and mussels. Absolutely amazing in every way possible. The service was 10/10. At the end of our meal, the manager served us a few fresh oysters on the house. You don't get better then that. Thankyou to... More

The fish stew is filling, a bit spicy and slightly on the lean side (I expected more content. My wife said the potato encrusted halibut was fantastic. If you want it a bit quieter sit... More

The wait for the oyster was quite a wait. The Japanese oysters are good but the other side dishes are not so nice. So beside the oysters there is nothing to rave about. Rodney's serve good beers and nice wines.

Although they are known for their oysters, they are also a popular after work spot to grab a drink. 1 block off the sky train (subway) so easy to stumble back to your hotel. Clientele is professional and hip.
