Where are the best fresh oysters in Calgary???

  • 7

I've done a quick poll amongst my friends and been told that the Living Room has the freshest oysters. Can anyone comment? I would have thought Catch would have had the best oysters? I've also heard, or read that Big Fish is very good as well. Best I've had was Rodney's in Vancouver.

  1. I LOVE Rodney's Oyster house in Vancouver.

    In Calgary, the best oysters I've had have been Catch, Charcut, and Sushi Club (they usually get their seafood fresh on Thurs)...

    Haven't tried Big Fish or Living Room... heard great things about the oysters at Big Fish and have been meaning to try them.

      I went to Rodneys in Vancouver recently - it was AWESOME!

    2. I also LOVE Rodney's Oyster house in Vancouver. I remember reading about it and dying to go there the second I could.

      Anyways, as for fresh oysters back at home, I like the oysters at Big Fish and it was nice having selection from east or west coast oysters when I went. It was also a buy 1 dozen, get 1 free which is only on mondays I think. I havn't tried Catch, Charcut, or sushi club (they had just sold out when I got there). But if you looking for an all out Oyster fest like they did at Rodney's, Calgary pales in comparison.

      1. Eric Giesbrecht. He supplies some of the restaurants in Calgary, including Big Fish and Catch.

        I tried a few the other night in Inglewood. They were very good.

        1. I love the oysters at Big Fish. I always go on Mondays when they have 2 for 1 oysters on.

          1. The District has great oysters!

            1. I'm surprised no one has mentioned The Embarcadero Wine and Oyster Bar. I've been there about a dozen times. They have an extensive oyster list and have never been sold out of any item that I've requested.
