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

Going to any restaurant on Saturday night, right after a dinner rush, probably not a great idea. But when we sat at the bar - squeezed in - it was apparent the wait staff was much more important than serving their patrons at the bar. Apparently they share all tips. It was several minutes before we were even acknowledged but... More

So, I have been ignoring Elephant Bar as the name sounds weird! My friends and I have been to two different Elephant Bars in the past couple of months and I have been pleases with their food, service and ambiance.
