Good oysters and steak on the menu

marshaw Aug 26, 2013 10:43 AM

A friend is coming to Toronto from Ottawa for a visit. We always have oysters when we go to see her, but not sure where to get them in Toronto. The other request is that her friends that will be joining us do not like oysters and would like to have steak. Any good restaurants where we can get both?

      Starfish serves great oysters and keeps Cumbrae's steak on the menu for landlubbers. If you want a selection of different types of oysters, I'd head to Starfish. http://www.starfishoysterbed.com/.

      Jacobs Steakhouse serves all kinds of steak and good oysters, if you rather have a contemporary steakhouse atmosphere.

          My friend and I went to Starfish a few years ago, great oysters and grilled sardines. It will be her choice as it's her birthday. Just checked out BlogTO and Zee Grill also sounds promising. Has anyone been?

            Zee Grill is excellent and they have a very nice steak on the menu.

              Zee Grill is wonderful. It's our local. Oysters are great and my father loves the steak there.

                I think we will be going to Zee Grill. Will report back in a couple of weeks. Thanks.
