One of the clerk's at the hotel recommended this restaurant and it is a restaurant that we enjoy near where we live, so we knew it would be a good choice. It's probably 3 miles from the hotel but it was well worth it. Prices are reasonable and service is excellent. They offer a full bar if you are inclined to just want a drink and are content to sit in the bar area. This is a large and nicely decorated restaurant. My husband and I shared a meal and just ordered a salad as a side. Servings were very generous and in fact we had more than enough to eat. It was delicious. The restaurant sets by itself where it's located, but it's very near a shopping center which includes a Costco.

On the plus side: great atmosphere, and a very sweet and helpful server. The kitchen was slow and our server kept apologizing for it to our party and the tables around us. When the food came, a sandwich was falling-apart soggy, with limp fries on the side, as if the dish had been sitting under heat lamps too long. Tomato soup, which was good, could have been hotter. The menu is confusing, with some items repeated here and there on the many pages. Our party of four could have been tempted to order dessert, or at least share one, but there was nothing there that appealed to any of us.

We hadn't eaten at Elephant Bar in a couple of years, and in our memory, it was a better place back then.

We are a family of 5 with 3 kids (6, 8, and 9). Food and drink was average and of a quality typical of chain restaurant. We ate there on New Year's Eve and there was nothing special happening (no drink or food specials). Our waitress was very attentive and just friendly enough that we felt welcomed but not put off.

We went there for dinner because a lot of reviews were talking about it. We were very disappointed because the meals we chose were not that good. We were expecting some original cuisine but it was absolutely ordinary and fair.

a giant menu always shows they can't make one perfect dish ! Drinks taste like sugar water , must have run out of alcohol ! 21 year old waiters who don't have a clue how to serve customers! food way overpriced and poor quality ! french fries looked like leftovers ! Ever heard of hot food ? Have been coming to this place when it was run by the Nancarrow family , close to 30 years. . always great then ! need some good cooks and above all a trained restaurant manager ! Oh,well back to Harry's Plaza cafe for a REAL MAI TAI!
