My wife and I enjoyed dinner at Rodney's last night. They have a wide variety of oysters to chose from and you can mix and match to your hearts content. We split a dozen oysters and then moved onto the main coarse. A live crab and lobster were brought to our table for our approval and 20 minutes later we... More

I went in a group of 7 people. Because we were greater than 6 there was a 20% added gratuity. We didn't know this until the very end (no one told us) and when we did find out we realized it was probably the reason why our waitress was completely useless throughout our entire dinner. Every single person at the... More

I have been coming to Rodney's for 30 years and it never disappoints. The food is always fresh and excellent. There are some pretenders but there is only one Rodney's. Oysters like nowhere else. Fresh lobster and other fresh fish and seafood.

My daughter and I were treated to an unbelievable evening of seafood that started with their opening collage of oysters from various parts including BC, Maine, Conneticut, NB, and Rodney's very own from PEI. For our second round we settled for a dozen of Conneticut's best. We were not disappointed as we kept their taste simple by just adding a... More

I've been here a few times and every time it's packed. So definitely be sure to get a reservation. One time we had a party of over 20. They had a back room available for us and a dedicated waitress. I love the selection of oysters. Trust me when I saw we love our oysters. Having the variety was great.... More

The Nice Fundy Scallops paired with a nice white wine. The scallops were on a bed of spinach, tomatoes, mushrooms. Just the right combo of spices so not a really heavy meal. Well worth the price.

The King St W area of Toronto is packed with excellent restaurants. Rodney's is definitely amongst the top tier restaurants there, and probably one of the best for seafood in the area. Start with oysters for appetizer and try a variety of Pacific, northern Atlantic and southern Atlantic oysters. Sample some of the amazing sauces they're served with, but have... More

First time...oysters were a hit and was nice that there was a HUGE variety and got to sample the many different kinds from all over. It was an excellent experience and my boyfriend enjoyed. Would do again for sure!

Always great seafood, just loved their Oysters and Calamari and my family loves to be here as well! Sauces are perfectly blended and good choices of beers also available for a perfect meal.
