Why, the nerve of those guys! What did they think it was - a holiday or something?
|North Woods Inn is a fun place to eat|
Then we realized that, although the North Woods Inn was closed, there was an open Elephant Bar restaurant next door. We'd already driven over to La Mirada, so we decided to try it.
The Elephant Bar is a chain restaurant, so you might have already eaten there. It takes me a while to catch up.
The place was busy - but mostly because there was a short staff on board that day, being a holiday. We got a charming - i.e. young, tall, and handsome! - waiter who was a delight and very friendly. He really helped make the afternoon a pleasant one.
First up, was the Parmesan encrusted green beans appetizer.

We made short work of that dish!

There were lots of yummy dishes on the menu, but we had gotten our tastebuds up for steak, and that's what we both ordered.
|Mine was nicely cooked with a side veggies|
It was all really lovely!
|Servers in motion!|
|The bar itself|
Next time I'm going back for one of the shrimp dishes!
