I have been coming here for more then 7 years and this is the last time I will visit this place. The food has gotten horrible and the bar service is neck and neck with the food. This place was a well run chain food joint. Now it is good for a beer if you can stand the fruit flys... More

I think the service and quality of good is going down with every visit. I used to like the concord and Burlingame locations for happy hour or brunch. When they still offered senior discounts, every table was taken at lunch time. We ordered the Mammoth appetizer tray. Onion rings were soggy and were dipped in some tomato based sauce before...

We stayed in a nice hotel just two doors down. We asked where to eat and they strongly encouraged us to go there. It was great. Busy place with a really varied menu. My husband eats heart smart and was very happy that they had selections that they could adapt to his needs. I had a wonderful burger, not heart... More

Visited the Elephant as a walk in couple early on a Friday evening. The place is large and pretty busy, so we had about a 40 minute wait although the estimated time we were given was 25 mins. This gave us time to study the menu which has a wide selection of world foods including Asian, European and American /... More

EB is one of our favorite places to visit for dining. After traveling a distance, we arrived for happy hour. Never have been disappointed. The bar area is very comfortable. There is a good selection on happy hour. The prices are very reasonable for the amount served. We will definately return to an EB if not to Burlingame.

Pub grub American style basically. Very busy but you can eat at the bar rather than wait for a table (if you can find a seat at the bar). The usual burgers, ribs, chicken etc and some more unusual Asian influenced dishes too. Filling and reasonably priced.

I had a fabulous noodle soup with rated salmon it was delicious. My wife had French onion soup and once she removed the cheese (she does not like cheese). We have now established that a starter is all we need as main courses are so big. Disapointing that like so many restaurants they don't have an espresso machine only that... More
