Rapscallion & Co. is a mischievous and vibrant part
of Hamilton’s restaurant scene, dedicated to offering the city’s culinary
connoisseurs a full nose-to-tail experience. We offer a regularly changing,
meaty and creative menu in a laid-back setting. Our skilled and
passionate chefs do it all, whether it’s curing, salting, boning, stuffing,
wrapping, charring, braising, or just leaving the meat raw.
Above all, we love to prepare food that pushes boundaries and pulls you outside of your comfort zone — just a little bit. We get tremendous joy out of food and offer items that you are unlikely to find another local restaurants. While we love meat more than some people love their firstborn, we are always happy to accommodate those who don’t. Vegetarians and vegans are always welcome, options available by request.

Rapscallion used to be one of our favourite restaurants - before they moved to this new much larger location. Clearly they haven’t been able to maintain quality of food or service in this much larger volume environment. This is a large group restaurant - where you go with 20 of your 20 something friends, grab a bite and have a few laughs. Doesn’t matter if you don’t get your wine with your food, doesn’t matter if the food is particularly good, you’re out having a good time. Not what Rapscallion used to be and not what we were looking for in our evening out. We won’t be back.

Our waiter seemed impatient, abrupt & impersonal. Food was better first time I ate there 3 months ago. My friend ordered the house wine. When we got our bill it was only $5? I would have ordered the house if the waiter would have told me, I paid $20. Felt like a number there. Sit down, hurry and order and get the hell out! Will not go back.

Was definitely not expecting the experience. It was my first time going there. It was nice trying something different. Food was great and the atmosphere was nice and cozy. Probably the best calamari I’ve ever had.

From the moment we walked inside and were greeted by the host, to the moment we left it was a wonderful experience.

The Beatles playing, hearing laughter throughout the restaurant, fabulous food & mimosas.

Our service was great, she was kind & knowledgeable.

Great food, excellent service! Excellent pairing recommendation by our server! We had the Crab cakes ( love the the coconut sauce and the squeeze of lime livens up the dish!), Steak au poivre and truffle fries we couldn’t get enough of and had to fight my husband for the last bite, decadent roasted bone marrow (like butter wow) and finished off with a delicious crème brûlée. Excellent date night! Glad to be back to experience this new and bigger location!

2nd visit this month. The food is incredible. Both visits exceeded my expectations. The waitress was friendly and knowledgeable,and made some excellent menu recommendations. We ordered 5 dishes between the 2 of us and loved them all. The steak tartar was exceptional. The best I've ever had. Gnocchi was fluffy and had a delectable smooth creamy suace. Literally melt in your mouth delicious. We really enjoyed letting our server take the lead on timing and the order in which the dishes were brought out. Beyond that, the atmosphere is great. Every person on staff was welcoming, polite and treated us like it was their pleasure to serve us. This place is a must try! I guarantee you will be hooked after your first bite.

Always the best experience at rapscallion. The food is unmatched, the service is incredible and the ambiance is great for all occasions. We had a table with a lot of restrictions/allergies and our waitress went above and beyond to accommodate us. We really appreciated her patience. One of our favourite restaurants in the city. Highly recommend.
