My friends and I often chose Iron Rabbit when getting together for lunch. The food has always been great and the staff friendly. I appreciate their gluten free options. A nice, comfortable place to catch up with friends.

I had been excited to try the Iron Rabbit after reading some positive reviews, but it wasn't worth it. Two servers were on duty for only three tables of diners for brunch on Saturday, so service shouldn't have been an issue, but the coffee came lukewarm and the food had been sitting for a while before being served. The english... More

Thee food for our dinner was excellent, the waitress knowledgeable about the many beers and the origins and make up of the food on the menu. The name of the restaurant suggested a stuffy, white linen restaurant. Pleasantly surprised to find it is like a neighborhood restaurant and bar. Open kitchen, great staff. If you’re “in the neighborhood or passing... More

My husband and I just took a chance on this place - tired after a very long plane-ride-plus-rental-car day. We didn't know the town of Olympia, and we loved the name of this restaurant --- let's hear it for having a great name for you business -- it worked to draw us in and we were very glad.

The Bloody Mary recipe needs work. It was watery and lacked flavor, spice and any hint of alcohol. The Moroccan chickpeas were delicious though!
