Very full and noisy at weekends. Phantastic selection of Oysters. Very good lobster. Recommend pasta and scallops. Best scallops I had so far. Waiters are knowledgeable about oysters. Reservation is a must.

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.

Description
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.
