The staff here are excellent - the menu steps above the standard pub fare. We prefer seating on the main floor - bartenders are excellent. If not a hummer, a Vodka Gimlet will make your visit complete.

We have been to the Pink Elephant several times and have never been disappointed. Our last visit was with our daughter and son-in law. We had a very nice table and an excellent waiter. We all enjoyed our meals and would certainly go back again.

Great restaurant! We ate upstairs- a little more quiet. The Chilean sea bass was to die for! Fantastic service - the waiter made great suggestions.

I always come here for lunches and a dinner. It's very good and very good service. However, the menu has not changed and, it is getting more crowded. It could use a menu overhaul with some lighter offerings.

I really liked this place inside and out ! Start at the bar and everything is delicious on the menu. Try the blackened grouper. The “hummer” is a great specialty cocktail.

Four of us enjoyed dinner here, and we were lucky to get a table upstairs without a reservation because the downstairs was full. Drinks were delicious. And service was good.

I would check with the restaurant about it's hours in the summer. Boca Grande has 2 seasons: Summer and "Social". :) A lot of stores have limited operating hours in the summer.
