Nice ambience, but a bit loud. Dinners included a variety of dishes than combined cooking and flavors from around the globe. Best dishes had an oriental flavor.

We had a good time here last week. Menu was varied and not just another 'fries with everything' place, staff very friendly, service excellent. The only small problem was that we were located near an A/C vent, and it was quite cold. Apart from that, a great place to eat.

Unless this is a "Park & Ride" bus stop, a packed parking lot seems to say a lot about someplace. This is a family place with a very good menu and good food and service. But...it's one of those places where there's no noise suppression based on the design of the place. It's like one big room. It's open to... More

New management has ruined restaurant. No more coupons, senior discounts (explorer program discontinued) etc. They won't even honor their own points rewards in combination with a specially priced item or promotion. Food itself is generally small portions and pricey for what you get.

The barbecue sauce was a lot and soaked the rice . Mahi Mahi Fish was good. The broccoli in both dish were kind of overcooked. Creme Brûlée's... More

Trying some place new for Happy Hour is always an adventure! This adventure almost had us leaving within the first 15 minutes, but we thought we'd give Elephant Bar a chance. The first thing we noticed walking into the bar area was the sticky floor...really sticky. We sauntered over to a table where our friend was already seated and ordered... More

Great lettuce wraps! Servers are busy but friendly. We sit in the bar usually because it's easier to get a table there.

I was eating Cole slaw served on a plate and after biting into something very hard I spit out the food. I found a white plastic bread tie wrap in what I was just chewing. I told the waiter who contacted the manager. The manager responded with the statement, “I heard there was something inedible in your food” and provided... More
