Returned to this great seafood restaurant with friends on a Saturday night. We had fabulous clam chowder, mussels and of course, amazing oysters. The atmosphere at one of the hightop tables near the bar was great-great music, lots of interesting people, and fun servers well acquainted with the oyster selection. Will definitely return.

Fresh Seafood but spartan accomodation. It is meant to look like a warehouse and does so on cold nights is a little chilly, take a crowd that likes oysters and beer and you will have a ball. Can get crowded though.

Rodney's is definitely not a fancy place but the food is always great! They have a whole bunch of different sauces to accompany the oysters which makes eating them even more fun. If you are looking for seafood in Toronto - this is a safe bet! Enjoy!

On a very cold January winter day - the less that 10 mins walk from the CN tower was important. On arrival the offer of a hot bowl of clam chouder followed by very jucy moules & frit was just what was needed for a warming but light dinner. Eating on your own generally means eating at the bar.

Service fine, good food, plenty of different fresh oysters which is really the reason one would go there. No complaints but it's overpriced for what it delivers.

Try the New England Clam Chowder and a variety of oysters! I am a huge Rodney's fan and go back as often as I can. One piece of advice ... select your own varieties of oysters if you are on a budget.
