Celebrated my 34th birthday last night with an excellent steak and blue crab cooked to perfection. It was paired with a 337 cab per the staff recommendation. This place has a great atmosphere and the food never disappoints. I highly recommend for anyone looking to have a great time with excellent food and awesome service.

What a disappointment. I've not been in a while and never for lunch before and never again for sure. A friend suggested it because it's close to where I work. I scoffed having been before and being aware of the prices, at least for dinner. She said it was going to be her treat and the lunch prices aren't that... More

Celebrated with family and friends in the private dining room. Everything was perfect from the food to the service. It was a perfect setting for the gathering. Parking was a bit tight but we took a taxi so no problem there.

This place has been around for a long time and once you visit you'll know why. This restaurant has a quaint but cozy feel and the menu offers selections of popular dishes from beef to seafood. The service was outstanding and prompt. This is place suitable for celebrating special occasions, a romantic dinner, or a gathering of friends and family.

Stopped in for Happy Hour on a recent Friday and was pleasantly surprised at the great food choices and drink specials. We enjoyed the fish tacos and loved that they were authentic fish tacos, not battered, but grilled and regular sized, not those tiny one-bite tacos served at other establishments. There were 2 on each plate and after those, no... More

Seafood can be so-so or great. Count Rapscallions as great! Landlocked in Reno NV the fare is brought in daily and the freshness shows. Our party of four each enjoyed a different entrée, all delighted with the results. The wait staff is "big city" professional and covered all the bases. Wine, drinks--all top notch.

A friend recommended this place for either lunch or dinner so I decided to try it for lunch. Since I was on my own I just sat at the bar and that worked out well. A lady by the name of Erica was the bartender and also the server in the bar area. She was great. She took very good... More

This restaurant was better than a 4 rating, but not quite a 5. The food was very good. Our group had a variety of steaks and seafood. One member needed was accommodated with several a la cart items that were not on the menu. Steaks and prime rib were cooked to perfection. One person found their salmon a bit dry.... More

We were in the mood for seafood and Reno is not the kind of place that one thinks of when thinking about seafood. Yet here we were in Reno in the mood for seafood. Well Rapscallion foots the bill. Good ambiance, good bar, great service and good food worthy of the price charged. Not inexpensive but not pricey either.. a... More
