NileGuide Expert tip:
If you get in before 6pm, you can take advantage of their "Low Tide" menu and save some cash.
Rodney's Oyster Bar is one of the best places to eat in the city. As you step into the casual restaurant, you will feel as though you have been transported somewhere outside Vancouver because of all the nautical East coast decor. The bartenders and servers are an all male team and provide stellar service and much entertainment. They offer a simple menu made with fresh ingredients, mainly from the sea. Oysters are their specialty and you can get them on the half shell or panfried. An array of condiments are presented to flavor the shucked gems, along with the classic condiments. If oysters aren't your thing, try the crab cakes and the clam chowder. The crab cakes are served with a lovely simple salad and it's big enough for two to share as an appetizer, or one as a main. Don't ask for mixed drinks, unless it's their signature Ceasar. They only sell beer and wine here.
