If you’re in the mood for oysters, there’s plenty of menus in Toronto offering up deals on these sea molluscs, but if you’re looking for quality and quantity, we’ve got you covered. Read on to discover the best oyster deals in town, from endless dozens to buck-a-shucks.

Pearl Diver

Pearl Diver is Old Town’s answer to seafood, serving up seasonal dishes in a homely, casual joint. On Thursdays, you can get oysters for one dollar from 6-10pm, but there’s a catch: you have to order 100 of them. Challenge accepted. If you’re okay with spending a few more cents, head here on after 10pm any night of the week when you can get a dozen oysters for $15. Pearl Diver also hosts their Oysterlicious on Wednesdays, where you can get a dozen oysters for $21.88.
