Bday oysters

What a great seafood experience once again. Try mixed seafood combo and especially the large selection of oysters. Reserve at least 2 weeks in advance.

Great selection of delicious oysters - fresh and tasty. Waitstaff and bartenders were friendly and helpful and had plenty of info about the oysters and everything else on the menu. Glad someone at our hotel recommended Rodney's while we were in town on business.

First visit; certainly not my last. Visited with 8 friends to celebrate birthdays. We ordered copious amounts of oysters, some food and several rounds of beer. The oysters were exceptionally fresh and delicious - the condiments were perfect and everything was presented by knowledgeable staff. I will certainly visit again! Loved the atmosphere.

Good selection of oysters. Largest East Coast oysters I have ever tasted to date - "Choppers". Not cheap but well worth the money.

Had a sample of 6 oysters which we all very good and the crab and corn soup was excellent. The fresh poppy-seed bread was also excellent.

It's difficult to get a table at Rodney's, and it's easy to discover why: they have the best oysters in the city. Rodney is a champion shucker, and their selection is wide, varied and incredibly delicious. Going for oysters is one thing, but their seafood is incredible, too. I enjoyed the lobster club (lobster + bacon = heaven). Forget about... More
