Nice place for lunch or dinner

Wide menu - lots of choices. Has a bar area. But it is noisy.... Plenty of parking in their lot or in the garage of West County Center.

I occasionally grab a late night dinner at the Elephant Bar after meetings. A couple of weeks ago on a Tuesday I was seated at the bar. I had the adequately tasty seared tuna and shrimp skewers. Ten feet away,one of the male staff was having a loud conversation with some friends. He loudly and creatively found a way to... More

Just okay IMHO. A large lunch crowd on a Friday so I would assume the same the other four days of the work week as well. Had the soup of the day, broccoli-cheese, and a side salad. A friend had the shrimp and chicken jambalaya. Soup was okay as well as the salad. The shrimp and chicken jambalaya had plenty... More

The wait staff was very friendly and the calamari appetizer was great. However, the sirloins we ordered lacked in flavor. The waiter said they are talking about possibly going with a different meat vendor to get better cuts of steak. She said other people have also commented that they did not like the steak.

Good food and good atmosphere...great place for quick lunch before shopping. Signed up for The Elephant Bar Card and got a free appitizer, we ordered the Calamari. It was good, and very pretty, not the usual rubberbands that you get other places. If I want great seafood, we go to the coast. I got the taco's and husband got the... More

Love the calamari appetizer, best in St. Louis. Great place to meet for a drink before shopping or a central location in the county along the 270 loop for lunch or dinner. Good Arnold Palmers too.

Started with the Calamari appetizer... Don't expect to share. The presentation was as pretty as the menu picture, the Calamari was just pretty scarce. The texture was very odd, too. You don't want it rubbery, but I have never had any that was such a soft, almost mushy texture. The flavor wasn't bad but mainly enjoyed the veggies and noodles... More
