We had a good experience at the bar.

We came to the Elephant Bar for a drink and pupus. Amongst the snacks we had were chicken lettuce wraps, the mammoth and French ribeye onion sliders. All of these were good and priced comparably to other places we've been. We had one round of drinks to go with this including a couple of very... read more

While we were eating in the restaurant, someone broke the back window of our car and stole two backpacks full of electronics. After we finished eating and discovered it, we were told by a mall security guard that it happened at least an hour earlier and they couldn't find us. Considering that we parked right next to the restaurant and... More

On Sunday (11/15), I made a reservation for a party of six at 5PM. I arrived at 5PM and the front desk (Sydney) told us that our wait time would be approximately 20 minutes while they cleaned up a table. We said no problem - we'll wait at the bar. We ordered a round of drinks (about 60 dollars, 70... More

This chain of restaurants has remained consistent in quality and prices since it first opened its doors. The interior decor always reminds me of Africa, yet the food choices are a mix of national and international. I've visited this restaurant about 6 times within one year and at this location, you always have to wait for the bar maid/waitress/waiter a... More

Since the Elephant Bar has been bought out by another chain the menu has changed. Not to many selections and menu is not the same. Very disappointed

This is a chain of restaurants which offer some 'typical' dishes like burgers and pastas and salads, but many have a delicious or unique twist. One in our party had a cheese burger - with bleu cheese and pear topping - very good. I had Teriyaki chicken which was also very good - and the portions are quite large, very... More

Great restaurant with good food and friendly staff. Bar is in the front of the restaurant and not too loud for dinner guest. Large portions. Safe neighborhood.

We took our neighbor there a couple of months ago. Selection on menu improved from prior visits. Food tasted better too. Disappointed that they no-longer take the Safari Club / Senior discount promotions they used to. Understand new ownership did away with them. Always seems that chain eateries change things, usually not for the better.
