Our food is all made from scratch using the best, locally-sourced ingredients available. All of our cocktails are made fresh when you order, handcrafted in-house by our mixologists. Brunch is offered on weekends 10am-2pm with brunch cocktails, patio dining, and delicious specialty brunch entrees. We've kept the same, great Elephant Bar Restaurant exclusives you've come to love...but made them better, using only made-from- scratch methods and high-quality ingredients. Better menu items, new craft cocktails, new wine list, and new brunch cocktails. We've completely evolved.We can't wait to see you soon!

“Food 2013”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

I thought the food was horrible!! The restaurant was way to loud and the service was slow and terrible!! I swore I would never go back but I did...huge mistake!! The second time was worse, I tried a steak, it was over cooked, under seasoned and just plain bad, The waitress could care less about her customers, she was completley over whelmed and knew nothing about her menu and the manager was no where to be found, and the prices are insane for the food they are serving!!! Never again!!

“Great Food and Noisy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

We have eaten here many times and never been disappointed with the food or service. They do get busy, even early on weekdays, with lots of seniors taking advangage of their 20 discount card or other specials. We always tend to get items from the asian influence or sandwich part of the menu so can't address the steak situation. Don't understand the comments about bad food or service since we have never had it or had anyone else near us complain. We do go mostly at lunch on weekdays. It can be noisy with its open room and music also playing, but it doesn't seem to stop the discussions going on.

“Mixed drinks & dessert are the best.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

The "Molten Lava" (not listed on the bar menu) and the Jungle Colada are sweet and flavorful. The bar was really busy, so it took awhile to order our drinks. Unfortunately, the petite sirloin on the "light" menu was just ok. Thank God for the A-1 steak sauce; otherwise I would have sent it back. The parmesan crusted potato that came with it was really good. The creme brulee dessert was excellent. The restaurant, as always, was noisy, but for me it just adds to the excitement of eating out.

“Good Food, But Quite Noisy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012

We had dinner here and thought the food was very good, but the ambiance was totally lacking. It was so noisy that evening that we almost had to shout to hear each other. Not good for a quiet dinner out!

“NIce place for a birthday meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012

My husband use to eat at the Elephant Bar years ago when he lived in Fresno. He said the food and style of the restaurant was exactly what he remembered. The food is pretty good. It is a bit more expensive than a typical chain restaurant though. A major downside is that there are not many vegetarian options and the menu online is different than the one in the restaurant.
