I have previously lived in the desert, when I come back to visit, I make sure I always visit the Elephant Bar. I'm a creature of habit and always get the chicken tenders, but the chocolate cake is to die for! You must try it!!

Just like a typical Elephant Bar with good selection of food at pretty reasonable prices, this place stands out for business and social lunch. Without a doubt, it is worth my recommendation.

Another late night location for a quiet town after 10pm. Late night Happy hour appetizers was a treat. Our server was the bartender and he was very polite and accommodating. It made our visit more enjoyable. Good food at great prices.

I often visit Palm Desert on holiday and this bar is within walking distance of where I stay. I love sitting in the outside area and eating and there is a wide choice of food on offer. I love some of the salads..far more creative than those we have in England. Service is always prompt and efficient. There is a... More

The name doesn't truly describe the place. There is a bar, true, but there is a darn good restaurant inside, too. In fact, the restaurant is the "jewel"of this place. The menu is quite varied -- from oriental stylings to comfort food --there is something for everyone. Sometimes the hostesses may seem bored to tears (even when the place is... More

Calamari was squishy and not crunchy like it should be. Overall, everything was burnt. The noodles were over-cooked, and the crispy "teriyaki chicken" didn't taste like teriyaki at all. The medium well steak was hard to chew (way too burnt), but it was nicely done on the inside. A decently priced place, but I stand by my overall rating.

We had a terrible experience in January and the Area Manager sent us a gift card so 4 of us went for a late lunch. We all had different burgers. Our server, Valeria, was great. All were served perfectly. We really enjoyed everything this time and will be back again.

This place gets very crowded after 6 p.m. for dinner. The reason for this is that families can get just decent food without spending an arm and a leg. Hence, it is packed with the elderly and families with young children. They accommodated us with a stroller and were very cordial. The menu has a great variety which is an... More

The food was delicious and well priced compared to other restaurants in the area. We even got a free appetizer by registering online. We had a nice, private booth. Our waiter, Juan Carlo, was AMAZING. It was like he was reading our minds, bringing us everything we needed without us even having to ask and he was very attentive and... More
