We were there pretty late on a Friday evening, and it was busy but not super packed. We were passed by several wait staff and it took 20 mins for someone to even come over to take our drink order. We were feeling pretty luxurious...More

Great spot and the oysters are great with a really great selection. It's a bit on the pricey side but it's worth it. Great location as well.

Found it on Tripwolf and it was just as I expected it to be. Although it was a bit dark for the middle of the day the environment was nice. People were competent and friendly, the oysters were delicious.

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.
