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!!!!

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.
