I made a reservation for our anniversary and was surprised when we were escorted to the private vault room. What an experience! The atmosphere and attention to detail by the staff was top notch! The food: oysters, salads, pork chop, scallops , and carrot cake was amazing! The mashed potatoes were like velvet and so delicious. Even the chef stopped by twice to ensure everything was OK. The term “fine dining” must have been invented for Vault. Thank you for making our anniversary very special! We’ll definitely be back!!!!

It was a great experience! The music was nice! We were seated in a very nice spot outside overlooking the water and fountain. The weather was perfect, the service was excellent! We had the recommended special of red snapper with rice and squash. The lemon and vodka mule during happy hour was an excellent compliment to the dinner.

What an amazing gem in Little Rock! I booked a table for 8 for a business meeting. The table was ready ahead of schedule and the host was happy to seat us..... Even though not all members of the party were present The service was outstanding. Very attentive but not overbearing. The food was out of this world. Planty of options for different dietary needs and tastes. The cocktails are creative and delicious. The wine list is extensive and priced right.

Great service! We arrived with my 91 yr old mom and they quickly realized she would not be able to sit at the high-top table. I expected a little bit of a wait while they figured out what to do. The staff resolved it immediately and my mother was thrilled with the food and service! We had mimosa's, Cranberry Focaccia French toast, Breakfast crepes, Nutella and fruit crepes and Chicken Fricassee! We all shared and it was all fantastic! Thank you for making my Mother's Day memorable with your outstanding staff (Blane)

About the restaurant
Our vision for The Grumpy Rabbit is to serve both Lonoke residents as well as people from surrounding communities and visitors passing through town. We want Lonoke to thrive and be prosperous and believe that leading by example and running a successful business will attract others to the area and inspire similar investment. Our hope for The Grumpy Rabbit is that as an anchor for revitalization, it will become a central location that draws foot traffic to historic downtown Lonoke. Additionally, as we employ both full-time and part-time staff, we are excited to bring new families to Lonoke, and know they will love the area as much as we do!

We loved our first visit to The Grumpy Rabbit! We brought our young kids and everyone was so kind and accommodating. Their fries are probably my favorite in Central AR! All the other food we had was great as well.

We went here for our anniversary. Wonderful service. The food is fantastic. The goat cheese mouse is particularly good. I would go back just for that. The drinks were well made. Servers and bartenders knowledgeable. My only note if I were to be picky would be that it is a little loud in there with all the people and hard surfaces. There isn’t a lot by way of surfaces able to absorb noise. (Perhaps a bookcase could be good in this regard and give a nod to the original use of the space at the same time.) But everything else was absolutely outstanding.
