You could die of old age waiting for service. Some people gave up and left. The food is great though.

I popped in while staying locally. This is a pleasant bar with pleasant staff.The midday menu is appetizing. The happy hour is 3 to 7 each weekday and is really jolly busy too! A visit is recommended.

Met friends here for lunch. This is comfort food and they do a good job of it. Husband and I shared the Asian sesame chicken salad and Korean beef tacos. Both good. Friendly waitstaff.

Decor is charming, and meals for delicious. I had the lamb shank dinner. It was so tender, just fell off the bone. Would recommend trying this restaurant if you've never been there. I'm from Indiana on vacation visiting a friend. She took me there.

Elephant Bar is a reliable restaurant to go to for good food, and good prices. The menu is quite broad, and should be able to please any guest. They have good specials, and a good rewards program

Good flavor in the dishes we tried. They offer smaller portions too so you do not have a ton of food leftover. Also a small nice outdoor patio, but it sits next to the parking lot.

We hadn't been to the Elephant Bar in several years as it was noisy (unless you sat out side) and the menu not all the appealing. /we were pleasantly surprised when we got a coupon and decided to try it again. Great menu selection. Something for everyone. We sat outside (very pleasant, they have heat lamps if it is cold).... More

We went to Elephant Bar today for lunch. It was my 6 y/o son's request. We ate there about a week ago and he liked the Mac and Cheese with chicken so we went back for him. When our food came one of his 3 pieces of chicken was dark brown and looked like it spent a couple of cycles... More
