About The Owner
Christian Skillings opened the Iron Rabbit Restaurant & Bar in 2005, believing that a family-friendly restaurant could make inspired food in a casual and welcoming atmosphere. Christian is proud to operate a restaurant that demonstrates his values: locally sourced ingredients, environmental stewardship, well-compensated staff, and involvement in our community.
Christian was born in Olympia and graduated from North Thurston High School. While earning his B.F.A. from the Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, Ore., he discovered a passion for restaurants and the unique value they bring to communities as a gathering place and way to savor life. Away from the restaurant, Christian enjoys spending time with his wife, Oksana, and their beautiful daughter.
