About

Belonging to the chain of restaurants run by Jackalopes Restaurants, the Peculiar Rabbit is an Americanized gastro pub that serves hearty English fare with a southern, American touch to it. With a brunch menu and a dinner menu, diners can enjoy English breakfast classics or go for more diverse options such as the apple cake pancake or sweet south pancakes.

The dinner menuat the Peculiar Rabbit offers hearty items like fish and chips, pork chops, and shepherds' pie.The best part about the Peculiar Rabbit is its outdoor patio that gives crystal clear views of the stunning skyline. Sunset is a popular time to sit and eat out here and with live music performances being held on certain nights, it's no surprise that dinner is always an outdoor affair.

I like this place for brunch, but during my last visit my waitress lacked personality and good service.

I have food allergies, which can make dining out challenging. But the Peculiar Rabbit staff was incredibly accommodating. They turned one of their dishes that I may not have been able to have into something extraordinary for me. I would highly recommend their short ribs. The only downside is that because the outdoor dining on the ground floor is essentially on the street, when a group of smokers sat on the curb for a while, we could not escape the cigarette smoke. The upstairs outdoor dining would be strongly preferred and worth the wait.

Vanessa was wonderful. Outside patio had a great vibe with perfect weather. Food was a little disappointing. Just expected more from the kitchen and lacked creativity.

Made a reservaction for 5. Asked for rooftop table but told they don't hold rooftop seats. last time I was there they said that I couldn't get rooftop unless I made a reservation. We sat outside on the street level, which was very noisy with idling delivery trucks, motorcycle reving, and car traffic. My husband ordered a beer and three times they came back and told him to pick another because they didn't have what he ordered off the beer menu. The kitchen staff brought out hot entres for two of the five of us, then, 10 full minutes later, they brought out 2 more meals, and finally the last person received their meal another five minutes later. by then, everyone else's meals were cold -- and to top things of the last enter served was all wrong. when a replacement was finally brought out, everyone else was done eating. they whole experience was dreadful and our server never apologized or made any gesture acknowledging our plight. Never again!

We had specifically ordered the appetizer before ordering the main dish so that we could enjoy them both. There was a difference of ten minutes between ordering, but they still came out together. We were there at 7:30 on a Saturday night. It started out pleasant like a restaurant atmosphere, but then quickly turned into a bar scene. Became very loud and we were unable to carry on a conversation across the table.

I enjoyed the PR two other times. Everything was great and the cottage pie was a favorite of my guests. I brought a party just last week and was very disappointed with the new menu. Instead of some interesting signature dishes, the PR is offering expensive salads and burgers.

Didn't know what to expect as this was my first time dining at the Peculiar Rabbit. I was pleasantly surprised. The menu choices were different and interesting and the server was attentive and friendly. I would highly recommend to anyone wanting to get away from the run of the mill. I will be returning!!!

My son chose PR for his birthday dinner. Our server was polite but service was slow.
The menu was most interesting. The food was artful but just okay though priced with the extraordinary.
The final insult, burned Creme Brulee. I cannot believe they presented this scorched mess at table...My son's birthday dessert, ruined. We had waited so long for it, we did not reorder.
Most disappointed.

Had Sunday brunch menu. Only gave us 1 set of silverware for 3 of us. Never brought any more. Asked for ketchup, nothing. Had to grab it off an empty table across the restaurant. My chicken and waffles was ok but chicken was very dry. Nice beer menu on tap though. Nice atmosphere with so much promise but can't overlook mediocre food and poor service.

We had calamari and Thai honey wings to start. I had the meatloaf, if was perfect comfort food. My daughters burger was great, my son had the pork loin. We all loved it. My husband really enjoyed the chicken and waffle. Even the brussle sprouts were good!

Hannah the bartender was great. Considering she was in an empty restaurant on Wednesday at 1 pm, she was upbeat and welcoming. The food was hot and served on time. The calamari was basic but crisp and cooked just right. The same with the fish and chips. Although, the actual piece of fish was the high point of the meal for me. Flaky, battered just right and fried great. The jalepeno fritters were, again, fried just right but lacked depth of flavor and were overpowered with chili or cayenne pepper and celery. They were not that good. The major problem I had was with the "stupid sauce". This sauce was, while good, served with 3 out of the 4 dishes we ordered including a burger. The menu is limited and this sauce was all over the place, so it was a bit of a turnoff after a while when everything began to taste like it. I'm a bit critical being in the industry, but this is an area that should be re-examined in my opinion. Give the bartender a raise, She was the highlight of the visit and I might return simply because she is there providing professional, kind service.

The chicken sandwich was great and just enough to fill me up with the sweet potatoes mixture as side dish. The staff took me to my table right away. The server was excellent and the service was excellent and the location was excellent as well, no trouble finding parking. The view was excellent as well. Great Restaurant to eat at would recommend it to anyone!

The food was okay but not great. Our cocktails were good and our waitress was great - name was Erin. We didn't have trouble parking because our reservation was for 7 on a Wednesday. It turns out we didn't need a reservation at all. The last time I came for lunch my friend received a parking ticket.

Overall I had a good time at the Peculiar Rabbit. Their drink list is impressive. However, I was not happy with the food that I was served. I ordered the fish and chips. I figured that would be simple enough for any place to prepare. The breading on the fish was very spicy. The tartar sauce was spicy too. I have never had spicy tartar sauce.It was actually not reminiscent of tart sauce at all. Since the menu did not mention that the Fish n Chips were prepared using a hot a spicy recipe, I was caught total off guard. I was able to finish my meal by pushing the tartar sauce aside and peeling the breading off of the fish.

I let the server know about my discontent when he asked how things were. He was very apologetic and gave us a free dessert, which was nice. I may go back and try something else one day because of that gesture.
