We were in the area visiting family and friends. This was our first visit by invitation of local family residents. Honestly, all the seafood items we sampled were outstanding; the oysters, shrimp and grits, crab, lobster, shrimp cocktail and scallops. The onion rings were delicious....However, the fries were average. The service was welcoming friendly and attentive. We can't wait until our next visit.More

The ambiance was quite nice but we ended up next to a loud table of hipsters that made it a bit unpleasant. The patio looked lovely but it was full. As for the food, the New England clam chowder was delicious, although a bit small....The oysters were mostly excellent with the exception of one type that we didn’t care for. The Nova Scotia ones were delicious and the fresh horseradish was nice. We also had the calamari which was good but not amazing. I was disappointed with my Caesar that was loaded a bit too much with horseradish. Would return though as it all seemed high quality and I’d like to try the other dishes. Tuna tar tar looked amazing.More

Excellent service and everything I had was delicious. The oysters were fresh and the lobster roll was incredible. The scallop ceviche is an absolute must try!

Rodneys is open again! They have strong COVID 19 measures in place and you can reserve inside or on the patio. We felt very comfortable with the measures they are taking. The oysters were plump, fresh and delicious. We also had a nice selection of...scallops, calamari, fried fish and onion rings. The chowders were excellent. Good selection of wines, beers and other drinks. Service is friendly and great as always.More

Came here looking for great seafood and was not disappointed. Excellence oyster selection and advice from server. Lobster roll was excellent. Generally good for coeliacs like my partner but no gluten free bread options.

After booking my Toronto trip, I really wanted some good seafood and started to crave it. I could’ve ordered some seafood meal here or there, but waited on my third night. Ordered shrimp cocktail, yellowfin tuna tartare, chili corn crab, a dozen mystic cocktail oysters,...and grilled calamari with a creemore lager. Don’t worry, I shared with my wife, but I’m could’ve... It was all delicious and can’t wait to go back.More

I have visited here every time I have been to Toronto and will be back. You need to like oysters and seafood but if you do then this is a must. Funky, laid back service but excellent service.

A group of business colleagues were at a conference and went to Rodneys for dinner. There were a few big oyster fans and they were not disappointed! I had the New England Clam chowder and the crab cakes; delicious. Cool atmosphere and great staff. I...highly recommend Rodneys!More

We're about 11000 sq' indoors, and another 600 of patio space. A chunk of that is office space, and areas dedicated to our wholesale and catering departments.
