First of all, the manager at this place rocks. She always has a presence when we're there. She is helping to do everything, talking to customers and doing the things a good manager does. We love the boiled peanuts. Not many restaurants serve these as an appetizer. Just a little bucket of boiled peanuts to share..what an awesome thing. Pizza:... More

I was at the restaurant with a friend. The food was tasty and the shrimps plenty. However my best was the bread. The bread was simply out of this world!

Tried it a few years ago and didn't like the atmosphere or the food. Was convinced to try it again. Nope, still don't like it. If you get pizza it may be ok, but other menu items just don't seem fresh, seasoned properly or presented nicely.

The service has always been friendly and attentive. The food is always good and sometimes very good. Occasionally it can get a bit noisy but overall the ambiance is casual and warm.

We love Red Elephant because there is always something yummy on their menu to choose from even if you don't know what you want as you walk in the door. Mahi, chicken or beef grills with a variety of toppings, often making it hard to choose. So many different pizza combinations you want to try something new but hard not... More

We went there for the first time. Place was empty but they still sat us near the kitchen. The server had zero enthusiasm, you can tell she does not like her job. The table had been cleaned off but was sticky. I am assuming she used a dirty cloth. They have a small room where you can have larger parties.... More

This used to be one of my favorite restaurants a few years ago. Then I moved away. I recently moved back to Lakeland and wanted a Red Elephant pizza. Was I ever disappointed! Don't expect the pizza to look anything like the picture on their menu. The crust, that used to be so tasty and light and puffy around the... More
