We had a wonderful time celebrating my husbands birthday. Service was fantastic. Only issue was the food came out too quick & we didn’t get to enjoy our salads. Surprised to see that the server took off the salads, which we were not expecting at all. The portions were big enough to share but we had plenty to take home to enjoy later. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Everything is always quality, the food, service and atmosphere. All the staff is always friendly and welcoming. We had a great view by the window but really every table where we have been seated is good. We especially love the corn fritters. The Dirty Martini was delish!

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.

About the restaurant
The Capital Bar & Grill may be the embodiment of Capital’s Southern Comfortable culinary vision focusing on provincial comfort food with a particular emphasis on the bounty of Arkansas. The tools of the bar include the most sought-after liquors, mixers and ingredients. In sort of a back-to-the-future twist, it has been a devotion to handmade classic and custom cocktails (the Aviation vs. the Cropduster) that has established Capital Bar as a nationally-regarded spirits destination. All this said, we strive to create a fun, relaxing experience for all of our guests: The friendly atmosphere is especially suited to business lunches, after-work drinks and get-togethers, as well as special date nights.
