The Blind Rabbit

I have heard nothing but good things about The Blind Rabbit, and I have had lots of friends tell me I needed to go there, so we did! They have 2 locations, one at the beach and one in Riverside. We visited the Riverside location since it was closer to home.

 We decided on the Poutine for our appetizer. For those of you unfamiliar with a Poutine, it is Hand-Cut Fries, Pork Belly, Tasso Ham, Cheese Curds, and Gravy....aka delicious! The gravy had a very nice taste and the fries were crispy.

I got The Holick Burger for my entree. It had a Sunny Side Egg, Intuition Braised Pork Belly, Tomato, Arugula, Homemade Bread & Butter Pickles, Lemon Aioli, on a Brioche Bun. I thought the burger was very good, but it didn't really need the pork belly. I don't think it did anything for the burger and it wasn't very flavorful. However, the rest of the burger was great. I got mac and cheese on the side. It was very creamy and the topping was crunchy and flavorful.

My husband got the Blues Burger, which had Maytag Blue Cheese, Caramelized Onions, Lettuce, Tomato, Homemade Bread & Butter Pickles, and a Brioche Bun. He has been craving a good burger and said that this one hit the spot! He got fries on the side.

Verdict: Liked it
We really liked everything and were pleasantly surprised. We didn't try any whiskey on this trip, but  they have a very large whiskey menu for those who are interested. While the prices are not outrageous, they are a little higher than some burger places in town. Still, I think it is definitely worth it. We plan on visiting again soon!

The Blind Rabbit - A Burger & Whiskey Bar on Urbanspoon


  1. Hello Jill,

    I currently live in south Florida and my family and I are looking to move to Jacksonville next year for my job. My fiancé and I have two small children so we are constantly searching for new restaurants to check out for date nights.

    I came across reviews that you have on Urbanspoon and it led me to your blog.

    I have got to say…I had never heard or seen “Poutine” before and it looks amazing! My fiancé would LOVE to try it, plus we love a good burger place.

    I checked out your “Wall of Fame” posts to see what you think are the best restaurants in Jacksonville and the lunch special from Mr. Taco looked pretty healthy, and Gourmet Aviator seemed like a good lunch place to check out. Although, I was surprised that The Melting Pot was on the list because it is a chain that most people have probably heard of and my fiancé and I tend to like the hole-in-the-wall secret treasures. Also, for the amount of money I would rather my food come already cooked 

    Great blog! I can’t wait to check out some of these restaurants when we move up there.

    1. Hi Anna! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a comment! Yes that poutine was absolutely delicious. Definitely a winner.
      While I do always try to eat hole in the wall places, I have to say that I really love The Melting Pot. I just have a thing for fondue :) Whenever you move, if you want more specialized recommendations or if you have any questions let me know! You can find me on facebook or shoot me an email at
      Thanks again!
