This is a great restaurant to take people just getting in from somewhere else...it's close to the airport, you can get just about anything you want to eat, and it's not that expensive. The downside is that the wait is always horrendous, day or night, doesn't matter, and the service sometimes is not that great. The food is ok, not superb, not bad, just not exceptional, but you won't go away hungry and you won't have spent a fortune! I've been many times for lunch and dinner, the menu is the same all the time. Lots of choices, a very large bar and very noisy.
Thank you for your feedback!

Ya know Robyn, a good place usually has a wait. No reservation? Sorry babe...try having a drink at the bar where the girl bartenders are babes! OR maybe you wouldn't appreciate that since you didn't appreciate the restaurant in general. A fun place like that doesn't need a fud like you!

Hey Robyn (1st critic). A good place usually has a wait. No reservations? Have a drink at the bar where the girl bartenders are totally hot! But, you probably wouldn't have appreciated it since you couldn't appreciate the EBAR in the first place. A fun place like this is no place for a fud like you!

I was not very pleased with this restaurant. To start with, the wait is ridiculous and the waiting room small. They would not let me make reservations, so I was forced to wait an hour to be seated. I would not have gone had I not received a gift certificate for this place as a gift. The service was awful, even for a busy place. The server was rude and pretty much dropped our food and abandoned us. She also got the order wrong. I have heard from others that they have had the same experience with the service. The food was blah and not cheap for this type of restaraunt. I would not go again! Thanks! Robyn

A view of the Bay and planes landing is not all you'll see from the Elephant Bar Restaurant. This restaurant is a place where adults and children alike can have fun in the jungle theme. Waitpeople are dressed in khaki's to enhance the theme. Food is a combination of Asian and American. Try to E-Bar sampler for appetizer (buffalo wings, zucchini sticks and fried shrimps). Prices are reasonable and atmosphere is fun. Reservations for small parties are not accepted so be prepared to wait on busy nights.

First time I went there was a 50 minute wait so I left. Next time I went my wife and I got seated right away, but the service was like we would have expected out of a busy restaurant, not one that was lightly populated. I had the Super Sampler appetizer (lots of great food but I substituted Fried Cheese for the Zucchini Sticks). For the main course I had the Chicken Tender Platter. Very well cooked with a tasty Honey Mustard sauce. This restuarant is part of a chain from Southern California - I will go back again for the food was great and the view overlooking the bay not too bad either.
