If you like food, please don't eat here. The ambiance is good. Service is good. Over priced for awful food. Go for drinks and live music only.

Cute place in business since 1927. Food varies from seafood, to burgers, sandwiches, salads and "trunks". Their version of a fish tacos. We had burgers which were cooked as close to medium rare a possible. Both served with fries. Seating was pleasant on the deck overlooking the Bay. Service was prompt and pleasant. Music on the weekends.

The White Elephant may not be a gourmet restaurant, but it does offer a great view, a funky surrounding, and live music ON THE WATER. It doesn't offer a great sunset view, it's across the street, but it is nicely situated on the Bayside of Manasota Key so it has a great "feel". Average cocktails, but cold beer and reasonable...

The music is great and the outdoor atmosphere is fun. The food is very basic and blah. Better to eat elsewhere and end up here for drinks and dancing.

We were on our boat and wanted to stop someplace to eat, this place has a dock out back. We were lucky to stumble across it. Great clam Chowder!!

We visited here during our stay for lunch, everything was very good. We sat on the water, and had a good waitress. I would recommend going here for drinks and lunch. They have live music as well.

Have been here multiple times visiting my father. You can sit inside or outside depending on preference. Bar is pretty good sized and menu has a ton of options. Pulled pork is my go to and they have tons of burger options that are good as well.

I ordered you-peel-shrimp and got a plate of peel-on shrimp swimming in garlic butter. The server explained that the menu was confusing and that the shrimp cocktail was the only cold option. For $9.99 I got a much smaller serving of PEELED shrimp. I've been here 3 times in 10 years and have been disappointed every time. No more for... More
