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.

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

Went here for a business dinner. Service was good and efficient. The food was fresh and unique. We had some people who really watch what they eat and they easily found some nice selections to chose from. I I tried one of their Asian specialties and was very happy.

Went for my granddaughters 16th birthday, which was my first visit. The staff and manager were very accommodating and friendly. The BBQ Chicken Salad was simply delicious and bigger than I expected! The Parmesan Crusted Green Beans were excellent! Everyone was pleased with their selections and with the staff as a whole.

I have been here 2 times and will never go back. The food is generic and not much flavor. They are disorganized.
