Sad at the best place off the restaurant, which is at the bar. The lady servicing us had a slow start, maybe as she didn’t understand our Dutch accent, and when I unasked made a picture of her opening Oysters right in front of us....More

This place is over the top; food, oysters, service and atmosphere were outstanding. We sat at a high-top table in the bar. The bartender waited on us and provided lots of information about the types of oysters that were available. My main course was scallops,...More

I loved the oysters and the tray of condiments and different hot sauces. The tartare was on the small side, but the service and atmosphere was worth it. Great for a lunch date. Try the sparkling riesling from Niagra. It was the perfect accompaniment.

Despite jet-lag, I delved into Rodney's iconic, memory-inducing New England Chowder starter, followed by a Canadian Lobster so fresh and succulent, I know no comparison! And kind kudos to the staff who demonstrate how knowledgeable, friendly and attentive they are, most appreciated! I'll be back.

We have been eating Rodney's oysters since 1980. Over 40 years of this delicious delicacy on many different occasions. Rodney himself is legendary . His restaurants have always served a fantastic selection of seafood and obviously specializes in oysters. Always a fun place.

To say this place was great is an understatement. The oysters were fresh and delicious. As I watched the staff prepare the oysters from the bar, each is careful to make sure the oysters are good. Mine were FABULOUS! Wish I could've stayed longer and...More
