My son & I went in for an early weekday lunch. I ordered the Ahi Salad & it was light, tasty, decent size. My son ordered a salad with chicken, something on the spicy side & he said it was very good & ended up taking some of it home. Our waitress was great too!

I stopped here for happy hour one evening, and it was action packed. Ordered an appetizer and a couple of drinks which were very good.

Went there on a Friday night and expected a line, but we were seated promptly. The meals were good, and with an AARP discount, were able to get a 20% discount. The parking outside is a little hard to find, but if you dont mind walking its OK. The entry door is on the oppisite side of the parking lot.

In one word this place is rude, the food is over priced and not at all good, I can see that a franchise like this will not last long, the waiter that served my food hit me in the back of the head with a plate and the other one almost knocked over a water glass trying to slide a... More

Very healthy menu that my wife and I enjoy. Seared Ahi and Lettuce wraps are a delight. New attitude and very friendly hostesses, waitresses,and even a visit from the manager. I will continue to frequent this establishment.

I really enjoy the food and decor at the Elephant Bar. However, when there are a lot of people in the restaurant, you can hardly hear your companion talk across from you. There seems to be more and more restaurants that do not take noise levels into account when designing their restaurants.
