We stopped by for a late Sunday evening dinner around 8 pm. Cammy (sp) was our waitress. The service was great. I had the Baja fish tacos and my wife had the curried chicken flatbread. The food was nice and was served quickly.

Enjoyable lunch before the 5th Avenue. "Bar A" was our waitress, super et our needs completely- enjoyed splitting a lunch without a problem. Try the Rueben - very good, reasonable prices. The great service pushed the E and C rifgr to a 5!

Went with family for lunch and found many options on the menu which is great for a pub. Had traditional pub food plus wraps and salads. Everyone enjoyed their meals so good result. Service was friendly and efficient. Well done.

Wanted "comfort food" after a long day of travel, and as it was conveniently located, thought I'd give it a try. Had the Beef-Stuffed Yorkshire Pudding, which fit the bill nicely. The Yorkshire Pudding was very well-prepared, the beef was good (but could have been better), the gravy was the main source of flavor and there was plenty of it.... More

Elephant and Castle is one of our main dinner spots on theater nights. We've had many of the dishes, including fish and chips, shepherds pie, pot pie, and my favorite, the Yorkshire pudding. They're all good. I wish the pot and shepherds pies were about 25% larger, but they're probably right-portioned. The service is always good and you can get... More

Why eat over priced food when you can eat for 1/2 the cost during happy hour? Beers and apps are reduced in this centrally located restaurant. The ambiance is hip, but if there is a convention in town, watch-out. It will take forever to get a seat.

Good food, not great, but what do you expect in a Pub? I had the deluxe burger and my sister had the ruben and both were good. Nice atmosphere, friendly servers, but they could be just a bit more attentive.

The menu is rounded out by a wide variety of North American comfort foods and sophisticated offerings from around the world. E&C's drink offerings provide guests with a significant selection of beer, wine and spirits.
