I had heard from a few people that Rodney’s is a must when visiting Vancouver.  So, it went on the itinerary and I must say that it did not disappoint!  The restaurant is just about a block away from the Yaletown station, so it’s very convenient to get to.  Happy hour, or “low tide” as referred to at Rodney’s, is a great way to sample their well-known seafood.  “Low tide” happens Mondays through Saturdays, 3pm – 6pm, first come first served.  Even though we arrived shortly before 3pm on a Saturday ( in case there was a line), we were seated promptly and handed the happy hour menu.  Within half an hour, the place was packed, so it pays to arrive early!

 

 

The happy hour menu

 

There are about 5 different house sauces on the table, in addition to the different Tabasco sauces.  The sauces vary by spiciness and tanginess.  My favorites were the Seawitch sauce and the White Boy Soul sauce.

 

Fresh warm bread is served complimentary.  I think it’s marble rye?  Soft and tasty!

 

Fresh shucked oysters are CAD $1.50/piece during low tide.  I haven’t had oysters this good since Fishing with Dynamite!  Best part about Rodney’s is the freshly grated horseradish!  I haven’t seen that anywhere else, so it was a real treat.  Highly recommend trying the oysters with the various sauces.  Yum yum yum…

 

Mussels were also awesome!  Mussels are steamed in dill butter, garlic and wine.  They’re so juicy and tender… not to mention, very well-cleaned!  The sauce was great for dipping the bread!  CAD $13.95

 

Will definitely be back to try some other items next time!
