We’re on the south side of King Street West, just west of Spadina Avenue. There are excellent public transit options (if you’re trying to drive across downtown to join us, for God’s sake don’t take King St), street parking on Wellington Street West and several lot parking options off King if you prefer to drive.
Be aware that you are only allowed to drive along King Street ONE BLOCK before having to turn right and get off, so don’t plan to drive across town via King.
Coming down Spadina: you can continue to drive across King St. north/south. You can either turn right (West) onto King and find a lot, or carry on to Wellington (south of us) and turn right (West) there. There are some unofficial lots on Wellington – usually between $10 and $20 flat rate.
If you need to walk up to us from Wellington, take the laneway beside Rodney’s. It runs right through.
Coming down Bathurst: you have to drive south of King and turn onto Wellington or Front. You can then go north on Portland and right onto King to find a lot.
Coming up from the Lake (north): from Spadina, turn left (West) onto Front. Or turn left onto King from Spadina – apparently this is allowed. You’ll have to turn off at Portland, though.
If you’ve read this far, you’re a better person than most.
Best bet – use the map to the right – that gives you the nearest official parking lots. Remember you can only go one block in any direction along King St. before you have to turn right and get off. Good luck!

RODNEY’S OYSTER HOUSE MULTI-YEAR ACCESSIBILITY PLAN 2023
The following is a list of barriers to accessibility to the business for those with disabilities as identified by members of the Company.
Front Doors – Custom made wooden doors do not currently offer electronic opening, making access difficult.
Steps – Entrance to the restaurant requires navigating 5 ½’ of stairs down from street level to the floor of the business.
Menu – Font on printed menus can be difficult to read.
Front Doors – crash bar and opening mechanism to be replaced, with electronic assistance buttons built in on either side.
Timeline: Doors are old, and will soon require replacement. Door buttons to be installed at the same time that wheelchair lift is installed.
Steps – Owing to the age of the building, lack of access is grandfathered in. Allied (landlord) has shown no interest in supporting leasehold improvements designed to improve accessibility for those who require it. When funds are avaiable ROH will explore installation of a lift. Timeline: unknown
Menu – Servers are trained to assist guests in reading and understanding our menu. Limited information is provided on the menu for all guests, regardless of degree of disability, so part of our service model is to explain to the guest what they can expect from our food items. Digital menus are available both via QR Code and online – all appropriate internet compliance is built in to them.
It is our belief that the physical barriers to entry created by our environment are the most difficult to navigate for persons with disabilities. Once these have been addressed we feel that the other elements of our business – physical layout, toilets, volume, etc – all work to support guests with disabilities in entering our premises.
