LOve their happy hour!

This is one of the only places where you can actually get healthy happy hour appetizers! Great selection and good choice of drinks too. Go early to get a seat in the bar.

Went there with our son who was in town on business and we had dined at the Elephant Bar in Albuquerque last week and the food there was great. Not the case in Concord. My wife's medium rare sirloin was cooked well and tough, the beans were burnt and raw. My post roast meat was dry and appeared to have... More

Young wait staff is very incompetent. The place is noisy, service is slow, bar drinks are poor and overprice (even at happy hour). There is no need for the delays as the staff is standing around chatting it up among themselves. There is no training for the servers and the food is average or below. I witnessed customers walking out... More

My husband and I visited here for "date night". Which was really pointless as we couldn't speak to each other it was so noisy! The menu is limited and the service was awful. Our food was just average but it took far too long to arrive. During our time there we watched 4 different families be seated at the table... More

Husband and I walked here from Hilton Hotel. Food was fine, but not memorable. Service was pleasant and prompt.

Too noisy for me and I don't like the idea of having to get my wine myself from the bar before I sit down for dinner to get happy hour price. After all you are going to spend more money on dinner. There are no good choices for people who have allergies. there is nothing written about it and you... More

I had to plan a corporate after hours event and it was a pleasure to work with Bill and his team. Very professional and friendly. We were able to reserve an outside patio space. We had food choices to accomodate gluten free, vegetarian and the whole team. The after work event was a success and a nice setting in concord.

I went to the Elephant Bar with my friends on a Friday night, and it was nice. We had drinks and hung out at a booth at the bar. It has a nice ambient.

The service was not very responsive, but that could have been because of the noise. It was more like trying to have a meal at a dance club.

The food here is okay, nothing wrong with it. The portions are reasonable, but the noise level is terrible. You cannot have a conversation, even with someone sitting right next to you unless you are shouting.
