I took a work college here for a casual dinner. From the moment you enter the atmosphere welcomes you. The smells of the sea immediately make you hungry and you can see oysters being shucked. All the food ordered was delicious. Highly recommended!

Great atmosphere, the staff are quite knowledgeable about oysters and their menu. Menu specials everyday. Sit at the oyster bar and the shuckers will explain the nuances of each type of oyster and the location where they were harvested.

Not sure what has happened here. This used to be my favorite place in Toronto. As a woman alone at the bar on a Friday night, I was treated like a persona non grata. I ordered specific oysters, they started telling me they were something...More

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.

Andy; We don't have a standard Surf and Turf dish on our menu. We will put one on our 'White Plate Specials' from time to time, but in general, if that's your hankering, bring a friend, and order a lobster (1.5-2lbs) and a... 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.
