My husband took me here for a date night. He has been to the Elephant Bar before and swears that its good. The ambience was great. We came early on a Sunday night so fortunately we didn't wait to be seated (we didn't call for reservation). The ambience was perfect. They have great menu selection. So we ordered the garlic...

I like the Mongolian Beef. Tell the server to have them make it tender. I like the strawberry Lemonaide.

We like stopping in at the Elephant Bar for a meal. They have an extensive menu with some unique choices. There is a pretty vibrant bar scene there which results in an elevated level of noise, but that is what I would expect in this type of restaurant.

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.
