We ordered the pasta with Scallops. This was definitely very good. With about 7 or 8 pcs of large scallops cooked to perfection, I would recommend this to anyone who would dine here. Oyster's inciidentally were not the best as claimed but they were good. The Boston Clam Chowder is a must try ! Nice ambienace, Friendly service.

The oysters are so fresh you can still taste the sea. The staff is very knowledgeable about the different varieties os oysters served, which vary based on availability of only the freshest.

In town to celebrate an anniversary with my wife...and had dinner her before a Blue Jays game. If you like seafood you will like Rodney's Oyster House...strangely we never had any oysters. I had everything from the day's specials - soup of the day (Grace's soup - basically a seafood gumbo), Tuna tartar and a Peruvian seafood rice stir fry.... More

This is a well known spot in Toronto, basically casual oyster house. The servers are extremely entertaining. Lots of different sauces to use with your oysters. Also had the scallops which were pretty good. Cool place, a little loud but it was a Saturday night.

The best place in Toronto for a massive assortment of fresh oysters. Our server, Kelly was so informative and set us up with a sampler plate with a wide variety of oysters from the Atlantic as well as the Pacific. The Atlantic ones were a bit tastier. Our daughters all tried them and loved them. The fresh whole lobster, presented... More
