We will be opening our open-air Oyster Garden (aka ‘Patio’) on Friday May 20th. We’ll be taking reservations there starting June 1, but we’ll also be sure to keep some chairs open for walkin traffic as the weather improves.
In late May, to celebrate the opening of the Garden AND the opening of the Atlantic Lobster Season, we see the return of Lobster Week May 31-June 5 – great lobster-themed food specials all week long, with our annual “Church Basement PEI Lobster Boil” happening on Thursday June 2 at 7pm. Cocktails, Oysters and Hors D’oeuvres in the Garden, then inside for Mussels, Lobster and traditional sides (cold beer, warm potato salad and tasty pie).
Tickets for the Lobster Boil can be found HERE
Lastly, and in small print – the Ontario Oyster Festival! The 2022 version, happening for real at Steam Whistle Brewery on Sunday July 17th. “The Oyster Variant (Show Us Your Tongue!)” Tickets on sale June 1st. We could not be more excited to have it back!
Lots of ways to get the Oyster into you – reserve a table or order through our website (click the link that says ‘Advance Orders), or through Ritual, UberEats or Doordash for delivery.
