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...

Fast service and good food! Indoor and outdoor eating in the park. Near Nordstrom's and Regal Theater. Nice place to watch the world go by.

We were looking for a reasonably priced lunch in or near the Cultural District of Portland. A guard at the Museum of Art mentioned this along with a few others. We checked the menus of several other places, and there were either heavier meals, or more than we hoped to spend. The menu here looked good, so we gave it... More

Elephants in the Park was recommended to us as a restaurant with lots of choices for fresh, good food at a reasonable price. But, we couldn't find the restaurant. When I called the tour company that recommended the place we happened to be standing in front of it, our so I thought. We were in front of their "fast food"... More
