Let's talk about the veggie burger.

First, this place is on the small side, but that is one of the reasons I like it. Every time I have visited (yes I've been there a few times now) I have never had to wait for a table. And every time I order the same thing. The veggie burger. They make it fresh right there, and you can... read more

Food is always good and fresh. The wait staff tries hard to please. The owner, Jack is miserable. We were in his restaurant next door and he wouldn't honor the happy hour half price meals that started at 6:00pm. We ordered at 5:59 and were served at 6:20. His staff apologized for him. We used to go weekly and after... More

A small place right on main st in Old Saybrook. A good selection of "specialty" Hotdogs and hamburgers. There are also salads , wings and some sides. If you are looking for a quick, good lunch, that's reasonably priced check this place out. I can personally vouch for the "Chicago" dog and onion rings !!

Great burgers! Huge variety of burgers and beers. The onion rings are fabulous and so are the chili cheese fries.

The Bar side of Jack Rabbit's offers a wide selection of drinks and an interesting menu of several types of burgers (and a few other sandwiches and salads) with special fixings. I like the pepper/onion burger on a toasted bun with crispy fries and a glass of on-tap-beer. Quite satisfying -- and the burgers and fixings are much better (fresher... More

I have only eaten at the family side, never eaten in the bar side. I am not a fan of hot dogs, and I love the Maui Wowi Hot Dog. that's the only dog I've ever gotten there. The buffalo bill burger is also great, and I will get a couple of those as a slider. It can be a... More

The restaurant was packed, but that did not mean despite only one server that we were "lost" in the crowd. The young man kept his cool and all went along smoothly. We are grandparents and had two of our grandkids with us (10 and 6). The food was excellent, kudos to the chef and to the server. No manager around... More

She was clearly embarrassed and only wanted to charge me for one beer. Told her no, just ring up my two beers. She... More

I called to get takeout, they asked me to hold while they finished up with a customer. Not a problem, I understand restaurants get busy sometimes. They put the phone to the side and I could hear everything. I waited 1...2...3 minutes, still no pick up..4..5. Finally someone picked up the phone!!! However before saying anything they hung it up.... More
