Rapscallion Seafood House & Bar Restaurant Review: A Reno tradition since 1977, Rapscallion is the place to go for seafood, as well as pasta dishes and good steaks. The setting is classic chophouse, with wood paneled walls, private booths, fine linens and topnotch service. Start with a seafood combo appetizer of coconut prawns, a scallop wrapped in bacon, and a crab cake, or, our favorite, the spicy yellowfin tartare. Salads include the traditional Caesar available with grilled chicken, calamari or bay shrimp. Prime Black Angus beef steaks top the entrée menu, but it is the seafood that keeps us coming back. Pan-seared lemon-pepper scallops are sweet and plump, served with a lobster bisque sauce. Tender and flaky pecan-crusted orange roughy is served with a rich Jack Daniels sauce for a Southern treat. The mixed grill includes swordfish, lobster and salmon paired with crunchy scallion potato latkes. The cellar features more than 2,000 wines, with roughly 25 available by the glass. For dessert, we recommend either the bread pudding with rum sauce or the baked caramel custard, both well matched with a glass of port. The lively bar is great for starting and finishing an evening.
