Oyster Boy is famous for being one of the best oyster houses in the city. They also do a brisk business in supplying the rest of the city (both restaurants and parties, home) with their oysters.

Hi Adam and John: We would like to Thank You for the great food we had at your Restaurant at the end of Nov. It was fabulous and an experience we will never forget. Your staff were friendly and polite and we felt right at home. We will recommend this place to all of our friends who visit Toronto. We look forward to seeing you in March and at our golf tournament at Windermere in August. Keep up the good work
Bon Apetite

I was kind of disapointed with this place. I had wanted to go for a long time but was always around the place at the busiest hour.

I think I just ordered the wrong things. My girlfriend and I split an order of baked oysters which were very good and then each got a fish main. Looking around I noticed everyone was just eating appetizers which looked way better then my flavorless dry piece of Atlantic char.

Service was okay, but could have been way more helpful and was terrible slow, we waited an hour and half for our meal. Does that not seem like way too long? We were pretty drunk by the time the food came.

I loved this place, so much that I went again the following weeks of my first visit. I had worked a contract job earlier that day and was recommended here by one of my colleagues. Though the wait was terribly long, everything me and my two other friends had ordered made it all worth it.

We had some oysters to start off and then followed our Deep Fried Oysters which just melted in our mouths. The Potato Laktes and Smoked Salmon were also a real taste grabber. The Chowder was good but I felt it could have been better.

The mains we had were the Mussels as well as the Fish and Chips. I can honestly say that the Fish and Chips really shocked us with its fresh taste. If you're looking for an oddball item that wows you then you for sure need to try the Fish Sandwich!

I was very satisfied with the friendly service and the relaxing atmosphere. This is not a place you would come to get fast service to dine and leave asap but rather a place to enjoy the company of your friends, music and hospitality of the servers.
Cheers

Fantastic restaurant. The atmosphere is very down to earth and the oysters are some of the best I've ever tried (including various European cities). The fish tacos are my favourite main dish, they're simple yet delicious. Definitely recommend it to all those who enjoy good seafood.
