      Thanks, been t rodneys, not bad, but may have been an off night, there was no one there... Starfish looks interesting, will do a search or if anyone has a POV

    2. I have enjoyed the oysters at both Rodney's (the King West location) and Starfish. However, I personally found the atmosphere more laid back at Rodney's, it's fun when you sit at the bar and always quite busy every time we've been.

      1. Love Starfish! Sit at the bar and watch the shucking in action with a nice glass of champagne..we have also been enjoying going to Biff's for "buck a shuck" after 5 pm m-f. You won't get the variety of oysters you do at Starfish (I think Biff's serves Malpeques) but they are still yummy!

        1. Starfish is wonderful - always fresh. We usually sit at the bar or at one of the bistro tables
          Rodney's bt Bay (on Temerapnce St) is also great and I prefer it to the Rodney;s on King

          1. Smokeless Joe on John St between Richmond & Adelaide. You can have a good beer with them.
