Whipper Snapper is a fun, vibrant neighborhood restaurant located on 4th Street in the West End Village of San Rafael. We're here to brighten your days with Cal-Caribe "vibrating vittles" that blend Latin flavors with local farm fresh ingredients.
Owner/Chef Bill Higgins is serving delicious tapas and reasonably priced daily specials in a space that will knock your socks off. He's a one-of-a-kind, wild guy that operates without borders (so expect a few surprises).
Award-winning resident artist, Patrick Maloney, has filled the space with his Whipper Snapper-inspired creations made from recycled materials. The larger-than-life wood sculptures were created in collaboration with local youth. Look for his hand-wrapped people, large fish mosaics and imaginative lighting sconces.
Come relax and meet your neighbors and friends over a glass of homemade Sangria at the bar, or bring a group and share dishes at a large table. Menu choices range from wild fish to plantains to the best-roasted potatoes around. Our friendly, upbeat staff will ensure that you have a good time... and you'll find yourself coming back again and again.
