Love their sliders. So sorry they are closed family friendly. Great salads. Bar for the men and television. Can be a little loud. If you ask they can seat you in a not so loud area. Attentive staff. None rushed atmosphere for conversation with friends.

Service was mediocre and the food was just blah......Lacked presentation and flavor. After awhile our waitress did not stop by to ask how everything was or if we needed refills. Never going back.

I ate here and the food was inedible. Nice atmosphere if you just want to go to the bar. Few vegetarian choices.

The Elephant Bar is a nice place with good food. However, it does have some drawbacks. The outdoor dining is adjacent to a busy street and a major access to the shopping center. The indoor dining area is nice but very noisy. I've found it...More

The reason this restaurant is only three star is that some of the booths have damaged leather seats. The same seat that I saw on my last visit is still severely damaged. That neglect makes me wonder what else is neglected. Beyond that, The maitre...More
