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!

    Great breakfast spot! Would have preferred the pancakes to be more fluffy. They were flat like crepes. Other than that, food was great! Everyone was so nice.

    Appetizer was cold when we got it and had to be sent back to be reheated. Food was good not great, but not worth the price. Better options around Central Arkansas for the price. Had heard lots of good things and maybe expectations were too high but overall wasn’t impressed. Drink menu was very sad as well.

    My husband and I both had the tile fish, I had a crème brûlée for dessert and my husband had a cinnamon roll. We were taken care of as far as service. I also had a blackberry margarita which was one of the sweetest drinks I’ve ever had, pretty but super sweet. We were with friends, had a great visit with them, but overall it wasn’t a memorable as our first trip to the Grumpy Rabbit.

    Such a cute restaurant. Loved the name, but they weren’t “Grumpy” at all. The monster burger was delicious! The carrot cake was a special treat...yummy! The T-shirts were really cute so we bought one.

    The Santa Brunch is a wonderful experience. Next year maybe rent a few extra high chairs and booster seats. We had a 19 month old we had to hold because the high chairs were all in use. But that is definitely not complaint, just a suggestion.

    The Grumpy RabbitResponded on December 21, 2022Thanks for coming. You are absolutely right. We will have additional high chairs for children's events. We celebrate Dr. Seuss in the spring and I will make the adjustments before then.

    It’s a little expensive for every day but it’s not quite geared towards a NICE date night but a good casual date night. Prices seemed a LITTLE high because some dishes are worth their price and some weren’t. With all that said it was overall very good. Service is great! Drinks are interesting and good.

    While the food was tasty, the atmosphere ruined the experience. The lights were so turned up so high i thought perhaps the staff were looking for something that had been lost. The place was empty except for a couple of tables of local farm boys drinking and watching sports on the enormous TV’s over the bar. The waitress was poorly dressed, overly familiar, did not know the answer to simple questions — what’s the fish? Is there a vegetable with that? The pork chop was undercooked. The vegetables didn’t arrive until the end of dinner. And so on. The website for this place completely misrepresents the product.

We were fortunate to meet the lovely owner, Gigi , who shared the history of the building and the beginning of the restaurant. Also, was introduced to the talented Chef Kyle Carson. It was a special way to celebrate Thanksgiving and plan return soon!!

    Walking in through a strikingly large, vintage door, you’re greeted by vibrant colors and modern style, the walls adorned with alluring artwork. We made our reservation 15 minutes till close, yet they encouraged us to explore the entirety of the restaurant after we finished our delectable entrées. We were treated like family. Out the backdoor to the patio, past the bar and the pin-your-hometown map, there are multiple murals that fill the nearby walls that are dedicated to the restaurant. Heading back inside and up the playfully patterned stairs will lead you to the upper room, which is open and elegant, punctuated with some eclectic furniture and art. The real beauty is the vast window that looks over the quiet downtown streets. Overall, a spot I would highly recommend and somewhere I’ll be back to. Not only because it is a wonderful experience but because of their mission to help revive the local community, breathing new life into it with each job they create and person they inspire with their service.

    We were seated over 30 minutes before receiving our drinks. The server seemed to be doubling as a bartender and greeted those guests and took their order before returning without our drinks to get our order. There were also other guests sat in her section before those who continued to sit down and be waited on at the bar. The food was good, and we really enjoyed the setting, but I have a hard time returning to places where I am upset about the service.

    Service was fast and friendly. We ordered the tater tots appetizer with the extra sauces, and they were great. Two of us ordered patty melts and two the crawfish poutine. The fries were amazing, which made both dishes delicious. The rye bread on the patty melt was strong enough to hold up the sandwich while also being surprisingly soft. Overall it was a good meal, and not too pricey at about $25 per person. We'd go back again if in the area.

It is challenge to have conversations with those in your party because the place is packed. Not much can be done about that as everyone is there to enjoy their time and company.

    From the moment of our arrival until we departed the restaurant it was nothing less that spectacular. We even learned from our fellow patrons that the restaurant is open on the weekend for brunch. If the brunch is anything like the dinner, we had during Octoberfest I can't wait to try it. Anyone that patronizes the Grumpy Rabbit will be very pleased.
