Great Happy Hour

Food is better than average with terrific Happy Hour menu. Only complaint would be the noise level which can be extremely loud and distracting. Waiters are friendly and efficient. I would not recommend patio area for dining unless you wish to consume auto exhaust (looks directly at street and... read more

this location seems to have trouble with service and the chain overall is not a great food value. It seems that the the push is to get people in and out like most big corporate locations. I felt rushed every visit. Atmosphere is cold and uncomfortable. Food portions small.

The Elephant Bar has a very wide variety of food types. Many of the plates are quite unique in the pairings, and in the spices. They have menu choices that you will not find elsewhere, and they will be excellent.

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.
