Cocktail Bar
The White Rabbit Public House is named after the first spirit house opened by Mr. Jack Daniels of Tennessee in 1892. The saloon was a favorite Lynchburg gathering place where his friends and family could spend time together and enjoy a glass of the finest Tennessee sipping whiskey. We felt the name fitting. We Love Spirits, Our Friends & Good Times!

Our Vision is Simple... to provide Great Food, Create Exciting Hand Crafted Cocktails, as well as offer an Amazing Selection of Spirits, Beer & Wine. We offer a comfortable environment that creates a fun atmosphere while you spend your time with us.

    This place is my go-to place for drinks and apps on the weekend. The vibe is cozy and fun, drinks are great and servers are just the right amount of sociable. Will be returning regularly!

    First time there, definitely not the last! Food was amazing! Charcuterie board, taco salad, ceasar salad, steak frites, cauliflower wings and jerk chicken tacos! The dessert board to share. Drinks were amazing. Especially the Black Sabbath! Service was fantastic, music and ambience also great! Maybe the best restaurant in KW!!

    First time there and I was really looking forward to it by all the positive reviews. We were seated right by the door so of course our view were patrons coming in and out along with the cold wind. Service was slow but they tried. Crab dip was great along with our drinks. My fish tacos were almost burnt and my date did not receive part of his order. Our server was either really nervous or new but not overly friendly and we were there to enjoy but didn’t. Btw, they were playing 80s and 70s music which we LOVE but considering the average age is 35, nobody appreciated it. Not a place for those looking for a quiet date night. Will not be returning.

    Honestly can’t say enough good things about The White Rabbit, they hit it out of the park every time. Great service, incredible drinks and the food is unreal. Without a doubt one of the best places to go in Uptown Waterloo, we’ll be back again soon.

    Been to White Rabbit many many times. Love the vibe. Drinks are great. And in general, food is most often quite good - really good for a bar. This past visit Michael served us and he was GREAT! The right blend of sass and service that is perfect (imo in this type of environment). Mussels were great but the garlic bread that came with them was amazing. Can’t believe I’m raving about it because it’s usually not my thing, but this stuff is perfect with the curry sauce. You know I’ll be back again :)

    What can I say about this place? The atmosphere was quaint and comfortable. Our server/ bartender was amazing. She was quick to accommodate my low sugar requirements and make sure that anything sweet was put on the side. Customized my drink to be less sweet and was super attentive without being annoyingly attentive. Lol Food: mussels (yummy), Wonton Nachos and Chicken and Waffles very flavourful and a great combination.

    The evening could have been a disaster but for the keen eye and empathy of the woman in charge of the bar. The first status that allowsy table and then they said we'll move to the bar and the bar kind of sucked because the seat sucked and then they found us a really cute little booth where the music was a little less noisy. If you love old school rock and roll it was very good. As for the food, every dish was well prepared and interesting. Highly recommend and particular the lamb chops and the duck spring rolls. I'd go back when in Waterloo again. Also a perfect location to explore the main drag which for a small city is pretty interesting and lively. Skip Kitchener. Also, if you love jazz, it's right down the street from a place called the jazz room, only a block away.

    One of my fav places in Waterloo, and I go regularly. Waitress was not attentive at all and we had to flag her down each time. Both last night, and a couple of weeks ago, the music was too loud and it impacted conversation. Also, the “DJ” there a few weeks ago was misplaced and really detracted from a nice date night. It’s not a “DJ” kind of place in my opinion……. Leave that for for beer lounge next door please.

    Music was great, server very helpful friendly and attentive. Good busy atmosphere and great music if you love classic rock. Drink selection really good and the food was mostly excellent, especially the Cajun shrimp tacos. My pork belly tacos were somewhat too fatty for my taste but there was enough of it so I could perform surgery and it was tasty, and enough. Bread pudding dessert was weird, not to the taste of the sweet tooth in our party.
