It was a great place to brunch with my family. Very accommodating to my large party of 10 and everyone absolutely loved their food. The bottomless mimosas were also amazing - definitely worth the $10! I would definitely be coming back.

We chose the Blind Rabbit for the proximity to our hotel, but were so glad we did! The food was good. We shared the Gorgonzola chips and Meatloaf sliders. We each had a cup of the Crab and corn chowder. So good!! We had their pecan old fashioned (can't think of the name) and it was, by far, my favorite drink of the whole trip. Good place for casual dining and feel good food.

Super loud, long wait for food, food was not good, service was bad. Manager was short with us, but agreed to take our bad food off the bill. Our waiter and manger told us our wait and lack of service from the waiter was due to having two twenty count tables, but that doesn't explain the poor food quality. Won't be back to this location.

We asked friends to meet us there, knowing it was Christmas time with the local JAX Beach Deck the Chairs display. We all enjoyed our drinks & meal. We know it is a busy place and somewhat loud, but we wanted to be in that location. I would come back soon because I found the appetizer & drinks very enjoyable followed by a tasty blue cheeseburger. I would recommend this for people who like a lively atmosphere in the JAX Bch location. Parking was free & that was an added bonus when it was hard to find spots on the street. Our server was very attentive and offered to bring our main dishes at a good pace after the appetizer of chips. Love those chips.

The Blind Rabbit in Jax Beach is a burger and whiskey bar. If you are going to go there, I would not deviate from that. We tried the following starters : chips with gorgonzola and balsamic which were ok, fried brussel sprouts which were ok and the fried green tomatoes - these were cut too thick and would not recommend. For dinner we had the shrimp and grits - too spicy for my wife- and I had the rib-eye - too much grizzle on the steak for me. If we had stuck with the burgers, I think we would have had a much better dining experience.

The first meal I had was so good I went back the next week. I had the classic cheeseburger and hand cut fries. I was excited they served it on a brioche bun—not as soft and doughey as I was hoping but still good that they thought about the bun being special too. Loved that they had homemade pickles. The lettuce could have had a little more heft and crunch, and maybe could have been a little more generous with tomato, but overall very good burger, worth every calorie. The fries were just what I’d hoped for. THEN...the s’mores milkshake—-handmade marshmallow slightly charred blended into a lightly peanut buttered graham cracker chocolate blended shake...to die for, perfect!
So I returned the next weekend.!the fried green tomato panini (a special) was amazing. The side of Brussels sprouts I had higher expectations for—when you go to a restaurant you expect them to at least be ceramelized and full of flavor. These were basically ho hum, good for nutrutionsl value only. Then the rocky road milk shake...the marshmallows did not taste homemade as before, the almonds were rancid/tasted old, and I was not expecting praline pecans—more of a rocky road true to flavor plain roasted chopped pecans instead. I just ate around the nuts...i was a little sad about it. They really need to freeze or refrigerate their nuts.;)
Based on the first meal only I would have given them five stars. Both times the server girls were excellent—attentive and pleasant.

I have never had a burger as good as the one at the Blind Rabbit. And the zucchini fries were ridiculous. Love this whiskey bar. Always try a whiskey flight. We have found new things to try based off those flights. If you are looking for a special date night go to, this is the spot.

This was our first trip to The Blind Rabbit and we liked it. My husband is a bit of a Cheeseburger Snob and wasn't overly impressed with the Cheeseburger (which came out a little undercooked for our taste) but the fries are great and the Deviled Egg appetizer was great. The Kettle Chips with Gorgonzola was good, but the cheese sauce drowned the chips, leaving them mushy..

Great place to hang out and have a few drinks and appetizers. The drinks were made well (blackberry mule & lemonade but the old fashioned was subpar) and the Gorgonzola chips are definitely the food to try. Good service as well.

We were sat in the back corner and my wife and I both had to move our chairs every time a server would walk by cause there wasn’t enough room for the walkway. This happened about 10-15 times over 20 min. During this 20 min of the servers walking by, not one server ever stopped to take our drink order or greet us for that matter. After waiting 20 min and no one coming to our table we got up and left. There were 4 other tables that were not in the middle of the walkway that they could have sat us at but didn’t cause they didn’t wanna take up a large table with only 4 people. Then when we tile the hostess they looked at us like we were crazy and didn’t respond at all. Very poor service

First time there and we will definitely go back. Everything we had was delicious. Loved the fried green tomatoes on goat cheese. All of our sandwiches were very tasty. My husband said the fries were the best he has ever had. Only complaint is that is is very noisy; the acoustics in there are not too good. But that won’t keep us from returning.

Drink offering and execution were excellent.
Was recommended to go there for the Pork Belly & Oyster sandwich and they were out so was a little bummed. Mushroom Bacon Swiss Melt was my 2nd choice and it was excellent.
Kitchen and Service in general were really slow considering it was Sunday night and not too packed.

The food was quick to come out and the service was very attentive. The food was very fresh and yummy. We had gorgonzola chips, and brunch food. All was great. Thank you for a nice Mother's day. Will be back again definitely for one of your delicious hamburgers.

We were in Jax Beach for a weekend graduation and need a quick bite after a long flight! Not having any clue where to eat we used Open Table to help us find a great place. Happy hour until 7 pm, a burger and a beer on a Friday night. What is not to love about that? It was just what we needed!

Service was lousy. There were 7 of us in our group.
We ordered 3 appetizers and only got 2 of the 3.
1 person ordered his meal, the server forgot to put in his order. 6 of us got our meals and the 7th person had to wait a long time for his meal to arrive. When he finally got his meal, it wasn't as he ordered it.

We went for a bite early on a Saturday. The place was reasonably busy with both families and just adults. There is a bar and a restaurant side. Service was quick, the burger was good. No complaints, reasonable price. Not the best burger I have ever eaten but certainly not the worst.

What an awesome experience. From the moment we walked in the door it was awesome. Our server was unbelievable, it was almost as if she could read our minds, always showing up when we needed her. I have never had such amazing service. The atmosphere was fresh and full of great energy. The food was superb. My husband said it was the best burger he has had to date. Loved this place. The next time we visit Jax Beach, we will definitely make a visit again.
