A limited but great menu, fast and friendly vegetarian offerings, Nice outdoor tables. Good non alcoholic selection of beverages. Great after you have parked your car and have spent the rest of your time in stores and in the theater.

Cute little place with friendly staff. I ordered the fish and chips and they were very good. It would have been nice to have vinegar and cocktail sauce but otherwise, good food. The place was packed but the service was very quick and accurate.

Sandwiches are super here--fresh and tasty. I've had the veggie burger and fish sandwich and both were excellent. Unfortunately the options for sides don't include a nice, light salad which would balance the sandwiches better. Deep fried sweet potato tots are good, but you leave feeling like you need to go on a hike up Mount Hood to burn it... More

Two locations, one in the "park" and one on the edge. Burgers and sandwiches are good. Great place for a quick bite after visiting the Art museum.

I've been a fan of this local chain for many years but I mostly stop at the Fox Tower location for coffee and pastries. But on a beautiful sunny day I had a craving for a cheeseburger so I decided to give Elephants in the Park a try. I'm not sorry. The burger was the perfect size and the just... More

We really enjoyed our lunch at this little restaurant. It's a small place where you order at the counter and then sit inside or outside. We ate outside where we could watch the activities in the park. My burger was fantastic and my husband said his pulled pork sandwich was one of the best he'd had. We would definitely recommend...
