This is one of the best restaurants in Simi Valley, CA with a nice atmosphere inside, where they make you feel at home! The food is very good for a reasonable price. Very special menu items to choose from. The service is super and I will for sure go back when we go out for dinner!

Although the Elephant Bar has a great bar, their drinks aren't the best (a little 'lite' on the booze) but their food has always been good. Prices are great. You get a lot of "bang for your buck". Sometimes the service isn't the best but mostly it's pretty good.

We went here a few years ago and loved it. We were shocked when we had dinner there tonight, as it was terrible! Food had no flavor except SALT. And because of the ridiculous saltyness I needed my water glass refilled 3 times, but I had to beg our waiter to do so. Vegetables were undercooked and flavorless. I love... More

Went to the restaurant while staying next door at the Best Western. I had eaten at one many years ago, so I was pleasantly surprised by the value for my dollar. Happy hour was great! Only complaint, I spilt my drink and they charged me for a replacement. (I previously owned a bar, and this is unacceptable!!0

I went on a week night during happy hour and it was lively and a little crowded. This is obviously popular. The clientele was mainly older adults. Service was zippy and worthy of a large tip. The happy hour drinks seemed slightly watered down but came out quickly. I ordered the chicken marsala, which was bland. The sauce tasted like... More

Somewhat upscale from a TGI Fridays or Applebees. Worth a visit We had a lunch and a dinner, and both were good.

Stayed at the Best Western Posada Royale right next door, so the Elephant Bar was a convenient location for dinner. We enjoyed the safari decor, and our sever was happy and helpful. We had a real mix of food: Chicken Tortilla soup, Chicken tenders, an iceberg wedge salad, and a seared Ahi tuna salad. Everything was very good, and we... More

It's a nice sports bar, and not overly crowded for NFL Sundays, which is nice. Kind of pricey without happy hour. Menu is good but greasy and heavy. Nothing I would truly call healthy on there. Good service though. Nice atmosphere. Large outdoor patio. Big parking lot.
