The atmosphere in this historic Corktown location is casual and cozy. There's an oyster bar where customers can dine and watch staff shuck (could be World Champion shucker Patrick McMurray). The menu features fresh fish and shellfish, steak, and fresh-baked bread. Fish and chips with skinny fries and herbs is popular, and there's an extensive selection of wine and beer including their signature Oyster Stout. Along with local craft beer and Ontario and international wines, the bar menu includes Oyster Shooters and an Iceberg StarfishTini. Watch for Oysterlicious Afternoons daily 3 to 6pm, weekends noon to 6pm—a dozen Canadian east coast oysters are served (add a drink for $5). Also popular: sticky toffee pudding and Caesars (the drink, not the salad). A prix-fixe lunch menu Saturday and Sunday is a new feature.
