Dr Phil's Foody Review

Food is ok. Used to be better when they first opened. Menu changed and food not always hot. Needs work on their menu.

Excellent!!! Had never been to an Elephant Bar (there was one in Palm Desert but it closed). Met with a group of friends for lunch and it was great. Wide menu selection and very good service! Perhaps the best hamburger I've ever had! A friend had fish & chips while a couple other friends had a small steak and baked... More

I lived in the LA area for a ton of years and recently returned to visit friends. We stopped at the Elephant bar for lunch. Wait staff was very attentive. Food was good. Facility looked well worn, outdated, and beat-up. The place could do with a make over.

The overall atmosphere is great but the happy hour menu has changed and not for the better. The selection is not great and the drinks have changed. It used to be a great place to eat and go for happy hour.

Like the variety of dished offered. A bit noisy but there are quieter areas to sit at. Try the green beans, they are wonderful.

A group of 10 ladies ages 60 - 80 ++ went here for lunch today and were graciously and professionally served by Brett. He kept his smile the whole time even when we all ordered water and then chatted over 35 minutes before we could decide what to order, (not Brett's fault, we were just chatty). Brett was very attentive,... More

Most of the food has been very good - once in a while, I've gotten something that is less than great. Service has always been good and it's a good place to take the kids. Also, it has a nice bar for a great couples experience.

The waitress was friendly and offered suggestions on what she recommended. I had the pomegranate margarita which was very nice! The food portion was too much for me - recommend the steak, garlic mash potatoes and sautéed veges.... All cooked to perfection and we didn't even have to wait long to eat especially considering it was a Friday night and... More
