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

This is a great lunch spot on nice days, or even if it is rainy but warm enough to sit outside under the big glass pavilion. I really love their burgers and fries.

Love this place on a hot day for a beer after work. However, for the past few weeks, of their three draft beers two have been ciders and one a red ale. How about an IPA or even a good old local Hefeweizen like they used to? Will give them 5 stars then gladly.

ElephantsDeli, Manager at Elephants In The Park, responded to this review

Hello friend, The store manger just confirmed we have a red, an IPA and a cider on tap. Perhaps the store signage was incorrect. She is checking now. We take our beer pretty seriously around here. More
