This is my 6 or 7 visit to Rodney's and love it every time i go. I usually go for the Oysters and clam chowder. They always have great Oysters from all over. They are fresh and tasty. They also have good assortment of beers. I must say this is not a great place for Kids unless they love seafood.... More

I went to Rodney's last Saturday. The place is very nice, since we are not oyster eaters we started with NE clam chowders which were very good. For main we had the daily fresh fish which was the red lobster deep fried perfectly, plus steamed mussels with wine sauce which were the tastiest I had and the cajun shrimp served... More

Took my daughter for her first foray into oysters. Rodney's did not fail to deliver. Service was attentive and knowledgable. Food was perfect. Atmosphere always cool and relaxed. Couldn't ask for more. Jory Bocknek

Had dinner here on the recommendation of a friend. Our server was great and ever so friendly. The oysters were delicious but pricey ($3-4 range each). Really not many entrees but the 2 we had were delicious but on the small side (pasta w/shrimp & pasta w/scallops). We saw several people with lobsters and they looked yummy but again were... More

We went after a show. The place was crowded, but we were sat right away. The shuckers and other bar tenders were all very helpful, fun, and worked hard to ensure a nice night

The oysters were excellent. The smoked fish was the smokiest fish I've tasted and was just wonderful (they make 4 or 5 kinds)! The real star, recommended by our fantastic server, Rachel, was the marinated mussels. They are done in-house with lots of fresh dill. They were amazing! Saw others partaking of the lobster and whole fish which looked fantastic.... More

Staying in Downtown West

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
