    The food was phenomenal. My fiancé and I both got burgers that didn’t disappoint. They were severely understaffed so the service wasn’t the best but we understood and the food made up for it.

    When we walked in I was a little apprehensive. I already checked the cost of the menu, and I thought for the prices charged, it would be a little fancier inside. I was pleasantly surprised! Drinks were delicious! Food was delicious! Four of us were in our party, and only one didn't care for his choice. We will definitely go back.

    We had a delightful evening at the Elephant Bar. We had an early reservation (5:30) and almost had the place to ourselves. Once we navigated the online menu, the order was taken and food promptly served. Food done to perfection.

    Service and ambiance were great but the food was substandard. I had the crab salad. Greens were fresh very little crab that tasted more like tuna. Martini was excellent. I suggest going for small bites if you’re planning a get together because you will be able to talk with each other.

    Steak was delicious. Turkey burger was meh. They never brought our appetizers. The waiter made it seem like he was doing us a big favour by not charging for the appetizers that never arrived. He said he’d try to get our dessert comped, because he forgot the appetizers, but made sure we only ordered one dessert for the two of us to share.

    Waited for 25 minutes for cocktails with some ridiculous excuse that they couldn’t find a martini glass (?!?) Food was average at best. Ambiance was nice and the restaurant was warm and not too loud. Overall experience was summed up by the apologies from the manager saying they were sorry that our service had been so poor. I will not be returning to this establishment anytime soon.

    We were out celebrating daughters 21st birthday! Food was very good, we had a bad waiter, no refiles on drinks. we waited about 15 minutes after meal was complete for waiter to go to our table. We were going to order desert but waiter was really slow never offered desert, we just decided to ask for bill and called it an end to dinner.

    I used to really enjoy the Elephant Grill. At this visit I though the food was not very good, and it was overpriced. My friend got a vegetable stir fry, and two thirds of the plate was covered with wonton strips. There was a fairly small strip in the middle of the plate that was the stir fry and rice. That was priced at $13.99. I ordered the salmon tempura roll, which used to be delicious. It was okay, but nearly as fresh and flavorful as it used to be. The atmosphere in the restaurant is pleasant, and the servers were good, but they need to improve food quality and price.

    Have to say the appetizer platter was awful! Service was the same. We didn’t even finish our meal and was given the check. Waiter was reminded 3 times I actually came in for the dessert. He laughed and said I’ll get your desert. After 15 minutes he brought it packaged up and it was frozen solid. Nothing like the picture of the mud pie. We did even say the meal was bad and desert was frozen. After paying they had to credit the desert. Very unfortunate it was a bad experience we’re not from here and tried it and was disappointed.

    Our first year here for our Thanksgiving meal, not our last by far. Both the traditional Thanksgiving meal and the Turkey Sandwich were AH-MAY-ZING. Even reheated a couple of days later, the food tasted very good. Excellent service and excellent meal, we will return.

    We have been going to Elephant Bar for years. We decided to check out the "New" Happy Hour. The $6 bites are a rip off! I ordered coconut chicken and got five little shrimp the size of my pinky. My husband ordered shrimp tempura roll, again, 5 little slices. I did like my $2 gin and tonic but my husband was disappointed that margaritas aren't on happy hour anymore. There's other places to go that offer a much better happy hour.

    Excellent service. Another birthday celebration with my friends was so special, thanks to them and every team member who had anything to do with our meals. I used my free birthday dessert and a $10 Elephant Bar Reward for this meal and made the Brunch even more special (not gonna lie!) I love your Shrimp and Chicken Jambalaya 💖💖💖

    It was great because they were able to seat and serve a large group for Mothers Day. The table was ready and we were able to get right in. The seating was a little tight and we had young children as well as a stroller for a handicapped child so that was a little hare. The waitress was good but it took a little while before the food came and the kids got a little antsy. The portions were pretty small especially the pancake plate and the description was a little off. I realize they don't usually do breakfast so maybe that was the reason. I have been in there for other meals and it has been much better.

    I made a reservation for 6 adults. The hostess working were NOT helpful. I were sat at a booth that was uncomfortable for 6 adults, very little arm room, and I was sitting literally on the edge. I asked to move to a table, and the hostess said that was saved for a party of 7. Made no sense that a party of 7 was given appropriate space, while my party of 6 was squished. I later asked my server (Tony I believe is her name), and she got a table cleaned after we ordered 3 appetizers, allowing us to enjoy our meal comfortably. My server was amazing and quite accommodating. The 3 hostess working need some more training. After it was all said and done, that table saved for 7 NEVER showed up and was used for a new party of 4. This was a big night for me, my parents were meeting my fiancée’s parents for the first time. I picked Elephant Bar for this momentous occasion because we like the food and drinks, but this experience put a sour taste in my mouth based on the unaccommodating hostess staff. Will not be going back.
