Have you been to Bunny’s Bar & Grill yet? This is a favorite spot for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It’s been open since 1933 in St. Louis Park and the name came from the original owner Henry Aretz, who ended with a sign made my mistake for someone else saying “Bunny’s” and was offered such a bargain that he decided to purchase it.

When the Aretz family sold it to Gary and Sherman Rackner in 1988, it became not just a bar but now a bar and grill when a kitchen was added. It remained a place for patrons to relax, catch the game, converse with friends and enjoy a great meal.

While they were forced to move locations in 1997 after a redevelopment of Excelsior Boulevard, they are now at a great location and keep the original traditions alive. Come check out Bunny’s for a great meal or sit in the back bar now called “Sherm’s.”

What to expect

The restaurant is located at 5916 Excelsior Boulevard in St. Louis Park moved from its original location at 4730 Excelsior Boulevard. They are open Monday through Thursday from 8am-1am, Fridays and Saturdays from 8am-2am and Sundays from 10am-1am.

For breakfast, enjoy your meal served with a complimentary juice, Bloody Mary or Screwdriver. Choose from options like steak & eggs, Denver skillet scramble, pork chops & eggs, cinnamon fritter French toast platter and great value breakfasts.

For lunch and dinner, start with an appetizer, soup, salad and dig in to entrees like burgers, pasta, pizzas, hot sandwiches, blue line specials and low carb entrees. Enjoy pop, juice, tea, coffee cream soda, root beer, or something from the bar. Try Bunny’s Ice Cream Pie or Bunny’s Root Beer Float. Enjoy beer on tap, by the bottle, malt beverages and more.
