This establishment has been voted the "Favorite Seafood Restaurant" by the Reno Gazette-Journal poll for more than 18 years. The decor is reminiscent of San Francisco eateries of the early 1900s. Stained glass, elegant wood paneling and subdued lighting add to the charming atmosphere. The menu features a vast array of seafood, lamb, steaks and pork dishes. Try the Rapscallion Seafood Grille prepared with jumbo prawns, swordfish and salmon served on potato latke and drizzled with lobster bisque for USD19.95. The wine list has more than 150 wines from around the world with prices in the moderate range.
My wife and I for the last 5 years have gone to Rapscallion for our anniversary. I will not set foot in the restaraunt again. The service was lousy even though there was almost no one in the place. The steak I ordered was burnt on one side and stringy. The potatoes were cold. Overpriced for the lousy service and lousy food.
I was disappointed by my recent meal at this restaurant. I ordered the NY Steak which was supposed to be dry aged prime angus beef. While cooked medium rare, I highly doubt that this was prime meat as it tasted no better then I could routinely purchase at my local grocery store. It was chewy with tough connective tissue running through the cut. Having eaten prime dry aged beef once a month for the past year this gets a definitive thumbs down. Perhaps I would have fared better trying their seafood.
Our food was excellent, and the staff went above and beyond to recognize our anniversary with a special card and dessert. They also made it more romantic by seating us in a "cabin". We can't wait to try Sunday Brunch.
My husband and I went to Rapscallion's for New Year's Eve. We made reservations but they seemed to be overbooked and overworked. Service was patchy, the servers harried and the food was mediocre; warm, not hot, and either over or under spiced. Since it was a special occasion my husband ordered the caviar, which was stylishly served in the jar in crushed ice. Hey, at least they took the lid off for him. The caviar server was a wooden tongue depressor.
In previous years we've gone to Rapscallion for special occasions but New Year's was such a disappointment, and two subsequent non-holiday dinners were the same, so Rapscallion's is off our food radar.
Rapscallion has gone from the top of our list to the bottom. On our last 2 visits (and believe me they will be our last), the waiter forgot one of our orders, requiring one of our party to share off everyone else's plates until their meal arrived - 20 minutes late. The next occasion, I ordered dungeness crab, and discovered the meat had been overcooked to the point of being 'crab jerky'. At first, I assumed there was only a problem with one leg, but as cracked more legs, I found the entire crab was a mass of stringy, dried out meat. Roadside fish stands have better quality control than Rapscallion.
Fat laden fish meals, way over priced. Big over cooked
shrimp. Dry halibut. Cheap bread. Greasy fish joint.
Smoke travels into non smoking areas. No Thanks.
Greasy spoon rendition of a true seaside fish house.
