Groups

Bringing a crew?

Our tradition is the Oyster Bar, but Maritime hospitality means we can’t resist a good party. Our private and semi-private group zones can accommodate up to 175 hungry guests at a time, and the neighbours are not known to complain about the noise. Ask us about customized menu options including non-seafood and vegan options to ensure there is something for everyone.

Please Note: The nature of our shared grub prevents us from accommodating the request for separate bills. We can break it down into 2-3 smaller bills, but you must request this option from the crew member taking care of you. We also have a pre-tax service compris of 20% on groups of 8 or more.

For more information about our group zones or to reserve a space for your event, call us at (416) 363-8105 ext. 22.
