I love this restaurant. The food is good, along with the service, and atmosphere. We stop to eat here when ever we are in that part of town

Staff was friendly and attentive but once we received the food I started looking for hidden cameras like we were being pranked. It was that bad. We literally started laughing. I had the Cajun Chicken breast. The breasts were smaller than an average size chicken tender. Literally the smallest chicken breasts I've seen in my life. My date had the... More

Our server was very busy flirting with the hostess and the other... More

My husband being a Cajun was very disappointed in their Shrimp Jambalaya. My hamburger was huge. Got 4 meals out of it. The waitress was great. I wouldn't go back cause there wasn't too much on the menu that I wanted. But that is just me.

We love Elephant Bar !! First time in Bakersfield restaurant on Sat. (evening before Mother's Day) and was not a good experience. Don't think they were prepared. Hostess was overwhelmed and going in circles, sections were closed, empty tables but not seating people, long waits of families celebrating Mom's Day. Staff was rushed and not giving the service they should.... More

I normally enjoy Elephant Bars. Ones in Phoenix, Scottsdale and other locations are fantastic for a chain restaurant with excellent service. The one in Bakersfield is missing some key elements. Service, Speed and Quality. I entered the restaurant and went to the bar area (which was empty except for 3 guests) with no bar tender (and non scheduled). I waited... More

For being a chain restaurant the Elephant Bar in Bakersfield offers a very pleasant eating experience. Their menu is extensive with many good choices covering American and Asian cuisine. We read a bad review about the "worst service ever" and were prepared to expect rude behavior or long waits. To our surprise everything went smoothly, attentive and even with a... More

We have often stopped in Bakersfield on our travels and up until now have not had a decent meal. We've tried other Elephant Bar restaurants so decided to give the one in Bakersfield a try. We ate in the lounge so we could take advantage of their happy hour. You can order off the regular menu in the lounge. We... More
