Dinner was just Ok, nothing real great but Ok. Not a very big variety on the menus. Go there maybe once every 6 months.

We went here for the first time recently and enjoyed the eclectic menu of Asian, American & African fare. I ordered the teriyaki chicken and my husband ordered the jambalaya. I also had the most delicious martini and ginger/green tea spritzer. As this is a chain restaurant, I kept my expectations low, but I was pleasantly surprised.

Before I went to that restaurant, I read the reviews because I was visiting the area. The plce is nice. I was alone so I sat at the bar and the bartender was very nice. I ordered a salmon salad.

Seating the 8 of us at 8 was not easy but this staff is prepared to handle it. The menu was extensive and had something for us all, even my 3year old granddaughter ate almost her whole pizza. Will come again.

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
