A no-nonsense fishing shack dedicated to the glories of bivalves. Flirty countermen work their magic on cougars and West End boys, shucking over 7,000 oysters a week. This place is serious fun—a carbon copy of Rodney’s in Toronto—but it feels more like Halifax: the staff is genuinely friendly in a way that sometimes goes unappreciated here. Fish and chips for lunch on a Friday or the chef’s-choice chowder and a pint of Guinness are a terrific way to wind down the week. “Low tide” specials from Monday to Saturday mean $1.50 cheap oysters, clams, and more between 3 to 6 p.m. No room at the always-jammed Yaletown location? Head to the two-level Gastown digs.
