Stopped by at the Elephant Bar for a couple of beers on a Friday afternoon. Good selection of beers which are well worth it at happy hour. Good atmosphere and friendly staff.

I have frequented the Elephant Bar when I travel to San Francisco. The staff are very helpful, food is great and they know how to pair wine with desert! I have met many locals from afar which add to the good atmosphere!

Nice chain restaurant you can't really expect anything special or food to remember but the view is excellent and we always had a nice service.
