John & Sons Oyster House - Downtown

John & Sons Oyster House - Downtown is out of the way from the hustle and bustle of the financial core but at the same time right in the middle of it, hidden away. From ducking down our little street, you feel as though you are doing something deliciously wicked. When you walk in the door of our 40 seat joint, you feel as though you’ve stumbled upon the best speakeasy in town and you’re getting away with flouting all the rules while everyone else behaves. You may think you’ll only have a few oysters and a quick drink while you’re there, but everything around you conspires to make you want to stay longer. Our fare varies according to the time of year, coastal fishing quotas and weather conditions. We can always shuck to order from a selection of 5-10 different Oysters daily, drawn from both our own beds in P.E.I. and the best growers in Canada, the USA and further abroad.

"There low tide special is always an amazing deal. $5 pints of Guinness and buck a shuck from 4-6pm. I usually get fish when I go to seafood restaurants but I got the burger here and it did not disappoint. My girlfriend got the fish and chips which were amazing as well. Great food, great atmosphere and a great experience overall."

"Our waitress said the fish tacos were popular. I though they were terrible. A waste of $ and ruined the dining experience. The oysters were great though. The room is in need of repair/ clean up somehow, anyway that is the feel."

"Once again the food was just fantastic. We shared a calamari started (delicious) - my guest and I both had the tuna main, it is just absolutely to die for - I highly recommend it. My other guest had the fish & chips, which is just always consistently great."

"The location was perfect from our hotel, and being from Alberta we where out to find some oysters. They had 6 varieties that change upon the supply given. Provided with our oysters were 4 sauces to choose from all which where perfect, Minus the REALLY hot sauce but that is for a selected taste.
We had the octupuss salad and fish tacos and donuts for dessert. All which were decent but nothing to really rant and rave about. Are main purpose were the oysters and beverages for the evening.

"Joe and Sons is everything you expect to get when going for oysters. Good food, nice and friendly staff. The ceviche was really good as was the selection of oysters. Our favourite was thru grilled octopus. Don't dress up this is t shirt and jeans kind of place, can't wait to go back next time I am in Toronto."

"Excellent time with friends when we decided to go to John and Sons one evening for dinner recently. Restaurant is quaint and has a great atmosphere. The staff was exceptional and the food was wonderful and very fresh tasting. Everyone commented that they would like to go back another time. And we will definitely return when in the city again."

"Great little spot. Service was fantastic, I believe our server was the manager. The seafood was delicious and they had a great wine list and also craft beer."

"What a nice change of pace to have a seafood restaurant in the area that is neither fast food or sushi! The octopus was so delicious and still moist! The cioppino was so flavourful with every piece of seafood cooked perfectly! I will be going back for sure!"

"The only negative was the noise level which is unavoidable as it is a small space which is very popular and with good reason. Our waitress Jessica was efficient and good humored. Oysters were fabulous and fish and chips were what the dish is supposed to be"
