Great food and service. Wide variety on the menu and modestly priced. Quite noisy not for romantic dinners.

As other posters stated the food is average or mediocre. The inside of the restaurant is decorated nicely, but there is nothing that blocks sound. You cannot have a nice conversation at your table since the other patrons are talking loudly trying to be heard so it just too noisy!

I avoided Elephant Bar for many years before giving it a try. My Loss! We now belong to their senior discount program. We are very pleased with the quality and quantity of food. Portions are appropriate, not too small and not too large. Just right! The restaurant is clean and the service very good. If you've not tried an Elephant... More

I love the Elephant Bar. The food is average to good. The prices are very reasonable, and the Happy Hour is the best !!! However, it can get a bit noisy, so if your looking for a nice quite atmosphere ... This isn't the place : )

Great place for kids and family. Low lighting, floor design and decor is grown-up style, place is very thematic, food is styled for a child's palate or for folks who need bland. Really a good place to train children how to behave in a sit-down restaurant.

I've been to Elephant Bar many times; business lunches, office holiday gathering, and after-work celebrations. The food is always great and what they offer is unusual without being weird. Service has alwasy been excellent and they are very accommodating to larger groups.

This is a casual restaurant, part of a chain, but with excellent food. It is conveniently located between the I-680 and Highway 242 off-ramps. The diverse menu contains a large variety of starters and entrees. These consist of mostly American, Japanese and Thai cuisine. There are also a large number of salads and side dishes. We chose the lamb shanks... More
