We went to this place based on the reviews and for "date night." We weren't disappointed. Driving up we weren't sure what to expect but once inside we were greeted quickly by genuinely friendly staff. Our server was attentive without being too present or pushy and had a good knowledge of the menu. She had the alfredo penne with artichoke hearts and chicken and I had the rancho burger. Both were quite tasty, fresh flavors, and just right portions. We topped it off with the bread pudding and I enjoyed two "Working Man's Brown" beers. The atmosphere was warm and inviting. It wasn't crowded and overall an excellent dining experience. We look forward to going back.

Thank you so much for your review! We love guest feedback, and are glad that you enjoyed your visit to the Rabbit. We love being "date night" for some, the family spot after work for others, and the place to watch Sunday football for the Hawks fans. We hope to see you again soon, and thank you again for taking the time to write a review.

The place looks like a neighborhood bar, however, the drinks and food were more the caliber of a three or four star restaurant. Food was inventive and very tasty. The bar had infused concoctions that were unique and tasty. Don't underestimate the staffs opinions. They were right on. A definite place to visit while in Olympia.

Really loved the place back when. Then they added a ton more tables and it feels too tight inside. Not relaxed. Service has slipped as well. Last several times service really missed the mark. And we used to see the same three or four cooks and there gone now too. I always think of this decline as , a restaurant is only as good as its cooks and staff.

Popped to the Iron Rabbit as just travelled from the UK to see family and they recommended the restaurant. We had a good meal and the beer selection was excellent. The waitress was very pleasant. Thanks for a great start to our holiday, it will take a good restaurant to beat the Burgers!

a friend and I were in Olympia for an event and we went to the Iron Rabbit for dinner. We were both absolutely blown away by the quality of food; bar none the best burger I've had. beer on tap and drink specials were great too. if we ever find ourselves in Olympia again, we'll be going back.
