Just want to help everyone coming over to Modesto. The business is closed already. Sad but true. I've been to other branches & they have nice establishments. A little on the pricey though, but pretty much good & tasty preparation & large servings. As I've said earlier, too bad they're not here in Modesto anymore.

Large facility. Clean. Service is great as is the food. You can eat in the bar area or the main restaurant. Prices are reasonable. I have gone to this restaurant several times.

The Elephant Bar is a very nice place to eat. We have never been disappointed in the food or service. They can be very helpful if you have a food allergy and need to make a special order, also. Other family members who have dined with us have enjoyed it too, so I definitely recommend it.

It wasn't busy, ( 4:00 pm, maybe 10 customers total in the whole place) but service was very slow. Looked like there were about 5 or 6 different servers waiting around. The server wasn't sure about menu items. Slow to refill drinks (only once) and only came to table 3 times after taking order. Food was o.k. but not as... More

Our favorite restaurant in Modesto. The menu is marvelous, covering just about anything you could want! We usually eat in the bar if we are alone. It is bright and spacious with fun people watching. The dining room is very nice but can be crowded. We usually try different dishes and have never been disappointed. Service is fantastic Our whole... More

Nice place, it is not a real quiet of place, but not that big of a deal. Good food. I'll be more than happy to return!

We were told to wait 10 minutes. During all this time, 3 woman were talking at front desk ignoring the client. Finally, one of them asked us to follow her with menu and assigned a table. It was about 20 other vacant table around. We were waiting 10 minutes for nothing or should I say, to allow them to finish... More

A group of us went to the Elephant Bar in Modesto for lunch and to visit. They let us stay as long as we wanted. The food was superb. I love anything and everything on the menu. I had the chicken Marsalla with garlic mashed potatoes. Yummy!

Thay had a coupon for dinner for 2 for $20.00 in the Sunday newspaper. It was a good value with an appetizer or dessert and an entre.

Reminds me of Rain Forest Cafe, without the people. Got there at 7 PM on a Tuesday and the place was empty. A lot of different types of food, no unifying theme, a little of this, a little of that. Decor was strange, a little of this (leopard spots) and a little of that (sort of African safari). Food was... More
