One of our favorite restaurant's in the area, and could be the best Happy Hour program with great pricing and selections 3-7pm Mon - Thur, and 3-6pm Fri-Sat. All the staff are fun and friendly with little turnover. Element is highly recommended.

Element's happy hour is wonderful! Drink specials, cheap appetizers (NOT skimpy serving sizes either). Apps to try: boneless wings, mussels, fried shrimp, and bruschetta. I tried the crab & cheese wontons and didn't care for them - too much cheese, not enough crab. The bar...More
