This is an oyster bar with music and great service from Duncan! I met Bronwin who is the daughter and so sweet! Food was delicious and even though it was Wednesday it was packed. I enjoyed this place!

We went for a late lunch today and had a great time. Service was great! Staff are funny, knowledgeable and attentive. The oysters were delicious. We had a variety recommended by the staff. The spicy vodka was awesome! We will be back for sure!

Jay - that's really disappointing to hear! A good, well-shucked Oyster is the foundation of our business, and it's terrible if we let someone down. I wonder if you would call me directly so I can get a little more detail about your visit (when...More

Sitting at the shucking station and enjoying beer is my way of enjoying the best oysters in the city. The booster roll is also outstanding.

When we have them in (which is most days) they are available lunch and dinner. We steam them, and serve them with a drawn butter broth for dipping.

Rodney Clark has been offering oysters to the masses in Toronto since 1987. Our selection changes daily, but we carry on average 12-18 different varieties from around the world. We also strive to offer the finest in fresh seafood, sourced from sustainable fisheries - as we work primarily with fresh product, you'll have to come down and see what's coming through our doors this week.
