As always, the bourbon and wines were carefully chosen and excellent, and the food was great, not to mention unique. My favorite place in town.

We’ve had dinner at this grill multiple times We were seated immediately. Picked our drinks and dinners, all were prepared to our liking. The specials were awesome. The staff was attentive and the owner visited us multiple times an invited us back for future evening specials. Reservations are recommended so you don’t miss out on an enjoyable evening.

About the restaurant
Restaurant/Bar with amazing Food, Drinks, and Service.

We strive to make your dining experience unique, flavorful and unexpected. Not your typical restaurant or bar, Rascals Tavern is a chef-owned restaurant offering fresh, flavorful dishes that reflect our rebellious nature. Everything is fresh and made from scratch by order so we cannot guarantee that we will have all of the items on the menu when you visit. More popular dishes and sandwiches will sell out quickly or she may use the last of one of her fresh ingredients before the day runs out. However, Chef Jessica can whip up something unique for you . . . Especially if you have a vegetarian, vegan or gluten free diet.

Limited capacity in-door seating and outdoor seating available.
Patio is not guaranteed but can be requested by calling 336-944-5527. We kindly ask that you limit your dining time during peak hours due to NC state-regulated capacity restrictions. Thank you for your understanding.

Jennifer took great care of us once again and was so helpful in recommending entrees. I had no thought in getting Catfish but upon her recommendation, I did. It’s huge but very flavorful and all the bones removed. Very happy with the drink choices and I loved the Old Smokey. Will definitely be back. Thank you Jennifer!!!
