What we ordered: We started with an order of Artichoke Dip, a creamy blend of artichokes, roasted red peppers, chiles and parmesan cheese.  It was baked in a ramekin and served with garlic toast.  Delicious and flavorful!

I was having difficulty deciding what to order and ended up with a French Dip.  The sandwich was alright; it was piled with deli-style roast beef on a toasted french roll with a side of au jus.  It was decent but not the greatest; would have been better with real shaved roast beef rather than the processed deli stuff. I’ve gotten really picky about my meats in that regard.   I had the choice of side and went with the french fries.

My companion ordered the Rack Attack Burger with American cheese, bacon, sauteed mushrooms, lettuce, tomato and mayo.  This burger was much better than the french dip! The burger was 1/2lb and had an impressive amount of freshly sauteed shrooms.  It was served with a side of barbeque and fries as choice of side.

Service: We had no problem finding parking in the big lot or a table inside, although it was a busy Saturday afternoon.  Our service was alright; it took a little longer than usual to get drinks refilled and meals were served before we had finished our appetizer.
Overall Impression: The atmosphere was lively and the Artichoke Dip was very good.  Service was kind of slow.

  1. They have the other staff deliver your food. The wait staff is too busy. So don’t expect finishing your drink before you food arrives. They’re all about turnover, not about the experience!

  3. Hmm. was watching the game at the bar, its really great cuz the mngr got this new service so he actually shows the good games now.

    Its called SBMX. and if you run a bar you should consider getting it. And really… it makes it easier to focus on what you should be focusing on without having to shuffle thru TV guide.

  4. Hi, I’m one of the owners of Bunnys and I’m sorry you had slow service. I have tried to build a reputation of having great service. Please try us again. Thanks for the review. Gary
