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

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.
