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

Elephant bar has few low-calorie choices, but today i was feeling...fatter than usual, so i ordered their California Fruit Salad, adding a bit of chicken. according to the menu, this was under 600 calories. While the serving size was just adequate, there were two issues - the menu says 'topped with fresh mint'. it should say significant spearmint notes throughout... More

I use trip advisor when I travel for restaurants. This is not an above average place. There are mom and pop locations providing great food in Bakersfield. My visit was nice. I had absolutly no problems. I just feel other reviews mislead the quality of what is offered.

Great steaks, nice ambiance , happy and courteous staff . I love this restaurant. I love the fact that the kitchen area is visible from the dining area. Makes you feel confident that the kitchen/cooking area is clean, unlike those restaurants in the show " restaurant impossible " where the kitchen looks nasty and horrible. You will feel very relaxed... More

This restaurant offers an interesting eclectic menu. I have enjoyed the seared ahi tuna offerings in the past, but decided to try the chicken Marsala, which was presented as two thin breast cutlets drowned in a glutinous brown sauce over mashed potatoes. The chicken was more rubbery than my Continental gatorskins. It was sent back and I shared my wife's... More
