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.

One of my favourite restaurants in the city! The food never disappoints. We ordered the Japanese eggplant, salmon crudo and oysters to start and as our mains we had the lobster and shrimp mac and cheese and the risotto short rib. Everything was incredible. Service was good as well and atmosphere is warm and welcoming

We had an excellent evening at Rapscallion. The service was impeccable. Attentive, personable and responsive. The food and drinks were delicious. Seated at the front booths is the only drawback to our night as many staff often congregated there, which took away from the ambiance. Shout out to our server Jason who was generous in trying to right that.

Pleasant ambiance and good service. The Classic Cesar's salad was very nice, so it was the Steak au Poivre, This came with "frites" that were sprinkled with grated cheese which, I feel, was totally unnecessary. The Lobster and Shrimp Mac&Cheese was way too heavy, too cheesy, too greasy. I would have like to see more fish dishes as only a Salmon Crudo was available. All considered, we felt that the food was overpriced. I hope they make amendments as the location is great.

The restaurant is really unique with a lovely ambience, a combination of 5 or 6 different rooms. Service was excellent. Thank you Bryson.
We were there for Sunday Brunch. Bloody Caesars were overpowering with Worcestershire sauce. Boneless chicken wings - Presentation was lovely but they were texturally mushy & the mustard sauce was a strange taste with chicken. Eggs Bennys were great, other than the English Muffin either wasn't toasted or not toasted enough, so was soggy, no crunch.

Excellent food and masterful table service. Little sound baffling so a little noisy made worse by loud group next to us (move unable to be accommodated). However group were wrapped up expeditiously by wait staff so issue was skilfully addressed. Found was very tasty and well proportioned. Would definitely recommend and go back. Nice to see an eatery from the past become so successful and add to the evolving James St South area of Hamilton. Just steps from GO train.
