Great place. Always busy. Food is fantastic and the portions are huge. The only complaint I have is that parking is a premium (because it’s always busy) and the noise get pretty loud. Usually here for lunch and it’s even more busy at night.

We have been going to Bunny's since the '80's and it is still as good as ever. They have great breakfasts, my favorite is the Eggs Benedict, but also have wonderful sandwiches and pizzas. The servers are friendly and efficient.

This was our first time here. It was PACKED at 5pm for happy hour. But free mini corn dogs, cheesey potato bites, and lasagna! All they ask is you buy a drink. Fantastic!

This is the spot we typically go to grab a burger or meet up with friends. Happy hour is great- they offer complimentary happy hour food too. We enjoy the burgers the most. Sunday brunch is also a favorite.

Bunny’s opened at 4730 Excelsior Boulevard in St. Louis Park in 1933. One of the most often asked questions over the years has been, “Where did that name come from?” The story goes like this… The original owner, Henry Aretz, was in need of a sign for his new bar, Aretz’s Place. However, the sign maker had a different idea. He had made a mistake on a sign that read “Bunny’s” and, not wanting to scrap the job, asked Henry Aretz if he wanted to buy a sign “real cheap.” Henry, knowing a bargain when he saw one, bought the sign, and Bunny’s was started. The Aretz family owned Bunny’s until Gary and Sherman Rackner bought the bar in 1988. Bunny’s became a Bar & Grill, with the addition of a kitchen in the fall of 1988, and continued its tradition of a place where local patrons could relax with friends, catch a game, and also have a great meal. Unfortunately, Sherman passed away in 1997 and, due to the proposed redevelopment of Excelsior Boulevard, Bunny’s had to find a new location by the end of 1998. In January of 1999, Gary brought in a new business partner, Steve Koch, and they reopened Bunny’s in its current location. We are happy to be in St. Louis Park and look forward to being a fixture in the community for many years to come. In memory of Sherman Rackner, Gary’s father and business partner, we have named the back bar “Sherm’s.” Sherm, we hope you are proud!
