Expensive, but service is good, and food isn't bad.

My husband being a Cajun was very disappointed in their Shrimp Jambalaya. My hamburger was huge. Got 4 meals out of it. The waitress was great. I wouldn't go back cause there wasn't too much on the menu that I wanted. But that is just me.

We love Elephant Bar !! First time in Bakersfield restaurant on Sat. (evening before Mother's Day) and was not a good experience. Don't think they were prepared. Hostess was overwhelmed and going in circles, sections were closed, empty tables but not seating people, long waits of families celebrating Mom's Day. Staff was rushed and not giving the service they should.... More

I normally enjoy Elephant Bars. Ones in Phoenix, Scottsdale and other locations are fantastic for a chain restaurant with excellent service. The one in Bakersfield is missing some key elements. Service, Speed and Quality. I entered the restaurant and went to the bar area (which was empty except for 3 guests) with no bar tender (and non scheduled). I waited... More

For being a chain restaurant the Elephant Bar in Bakersfield offers a very pleasant eating experience. Their menu is extensive with many good choices covering American and Asian cuisine. We read a bad review about the "worst service ever" and were prepared to expect rude behavior or long waits. To our surprise everything went smoothly, attentive and even with a... More

We have often stopped in Bakersfield on our travels and up until now have not had a decent meal. We've tried other Elephant Bar restaurants so decided to give the one in Bakersfield a try. We ate in the lounge so we could take advantage of their happy hour. You can order off the regular menu in the lounge. We... More

This is the 2nd Elephant Bar restaurant we've been to. The other one was in San Bernardino, CA. The food is always terrific and portions too large. I had an oriental dish and my husband had the Jambalaya which was great.

You go here only if you have to, Nice view to the ocean, rude waiters and over all average food. But if you have to: like me, staying at a nearby hotel to reach an early plane next day, it´s OK.

Ive eaten at this chain many times in cities all over. The menu is great with high variety. Although the last time I went they lost some items I enjoyed from the menu. I still feel the restaurant is good and food is always great but I will miss certain items. This location is fair. Although make sure to plan... More

Business friends wanted a grab a quick bite at the bar. Almost an hour and a half later we were able to finally check out. I have tried this place for the third and last time. Poor staff training at this location, business opportunities are available all over town. If you like poor service have a great time at elephant... More
