Disappointing

I travel here for work about once a year and the Elephant Bar has always been on my list to visit because it had a large and varied menu along with some great salads. This has apparently changed. The menu has changed dramatically from what I remember. Fewer items of less imaginative food. Not... read more

I don't blast places to often because I understand that my words could impact their business. However, when you provide undercooked food/meat I think everyone should know. The server was AMAZING and one of the two apps we had was good but that's where it all ends. Shrimp was overcooked while my chicken was raw. Not a little pink but... More

Having been to the Elephant Bar many times, I was very disappointed recently when I went with a friend, my daughter, and teen age grandchildren. Right away being given the new menus cut to about 1/4 of the previous size, I asked out waiter if that was the dinner menu. He said, "Yes, I know it's a big change, but... More

My husband and I each and 2 drinks and 2 small plates and it was under $40. For the happy hour deal you must sit at the bar. The drinks were good and NOT watered down. The food was filling. The parking lot can get full fast. I suggest to drop someone off to put your name down while you... More

We like going to Elephant Bar but have not gone there recently. They discontinued the senior discount. Food is good, and very reasonably priced. There is a very high turnover in staff, and the staff is very busy. . Wait times can be long, we usually go early in the evening. We can walk to the restaurant which is a... More

We have eaten here several times over the years, and the food continues to be very good. They have a varied menu, with something for everyone. Portions are large and flavorful. Service is friendly and very good. A good value. Reservations are taken, and parking is usually not a problem, since they are located in a shopping center. They also... More

Went there with a dozen friends for Sunday lunch. We were seated quickly. Waitress stopped by pretty quick too. Ordered their ribs, frys, and a soda. Finished the soda quickly. No refill until the main course came. This was the last refill I got. The frys were so soggy I asked the manager for replacement. They never came. There was... More

We have had some interesting experiences here. Food here is very very good and they are good at improvising upon your requests. However, we have had unusually long waits for a table. We have had salt mistaken for sugar in the creme brûlée. But they always try to make it right. So we keep coming back.
