I enjoy bringing my work colleagues in for lunch. Michael and his crew run a very nice, friendly and efficient restaurant. I always feel important dining with my family or with my business associates. Food is always fresh and tasty and I never leave hungry.

The abundance of main course choices made eating at the Elephant Bar restaurant a perfect place to have a meal.

This is a nice restaurant, casual but on the bay with nice views. We had an hour wait at 8:30 on a Friday night, but waited it out since the night was pleasant and they had outdoor seating for those waiting. The food was good and they have many dishes that are for sharing, but not many options for vegetarians,... More

The view of the bay & airport is outstanding. It is worth coming here for that alone. My wife & I had lunch & the food & service were great. The prices are very reasonable. The only reason it fails to get 5 stars is because it is very noisy.

One of our family favorites. They have the best appetizers. We like to order a bunch of them and eat family style. The entrees are huge and tons of options. Pretty much everything I've had was delicious. A few favorites are the sliders, spinach artichoke dip and the salmon rolls.

Prices are fair. Food is ok to good. I last had a nice burger there cook just as I ordered. Service is hit and miss, with mostly good service. Nice views of SF Bay are a plus.

We were in that restaurant last night 'cause my hotel is quite close. We waited about 40 min to have a table but the food was good and cheap. I ate Lemon-garlic chicken w/ basil pesto, some vegetables 'n brown rice (gluten free); my husband ate a good sirlon w/ mashed potatoes. It was a very good evening!

We were staying in nearby airport hotel within walking distance to the Elephant Bar. Restaurant has great views of the bay front and airport runways. Food was fantastic, service was friendly and efficient. We had a late lunch and decided to walk back later that evening for dessert.

I love this place! The ambiance is awesome, a little loud in the bar section, but great view of the ocean with planes coming in. Great date night with my sweetheart 💕

We were staying in a airport hotel nearby and so decided to pop over the road and check out the Elephant. There was a queue/line of people waiting for a table and we were given a pager so we could be notified when a table was available. We went to the bar expecting to wait a while but after about...
