2017 has been a terrific year for us (marred only slightly by the confusion around the #Kingstreetpilotfail that has left people wondering how to get to us this winter). We’ve served more customers, and more Oysters, than ever before. We’ve been honoured to host weddings (no divorces yet!) memorial services, and have met folks from all over the planet, coming to King Street to experience the pleasure that a good oyster and good company will bring.  We’re fortunate that our friendly (if occasionally unpolished) style seems to resonate with people.
Thank you to the hard-working farmers, fishermen, winemakers and brewers we worked with this year.  And thank you to the many wholesale and catering clients that do so much to keep our trucks on the road and the lights on in the basement. 
On behalf of Rodney, Bronwen, Ann-Marie, all our talented shuckers, chefs and crew, thank you for your support, and Happy New Year!
– Julius

Catering, like oysters, is in our blood.

Long before Rodney “The Oysterman” opened his first restaurant, he brought the magic of the mollusk to Upper Canadians in their homes and at their events. Good shellfish, prepared simply and knowledgeably, and served with Maritime hospitality were the cornerstones of this catering business – and these values still hold true today

The Red King Crab – at the House of Shells.

KING CRAB ALERT! The Alaskan King Crab is back at the House of Shells for the next 6 weeks or so.  But although they are Alaskan in species ( Paralithodes camtschaticus), the crabs today are actually coming from the Barents Sea, which is north of the Norway-Russian border.
