Regular place to eat

It is more bar than restaurants, specially in the night time. THe food is good, but the environment is noisy.

I can't express how impressed i am with the generosity of the above restaurant in offering free dinner to the needy on Xmas. This is a very kind gesture. I will frequent this place on a regular basis based on this act. Well done, Elite, well done!

Have been a loyal Elite diner for decades, but my last visit was a real disappointment. Their burgers used to be great, but suddenly got a lot smaller. Bun was stale and not the same quality. Fries were still great, but now only a tiny portion. Friend had the breakfast special ... it was also smaller and came with just... More

Elite is more than just a restaurant. It's a bar/music venue and also a piece of Penticton history. We loved the style and feel of the place. The women working were friendly but also spent a lot of time talking to regulars (which, in my opinion, is as it should be). There was a young guy in making arrangements for... More

The decor is 40 years old and worn. Waited a long time for my meal and received it greasy and overlooked!

Our original choice for a old diner style lunch was closed and as we drove thru town we saw this place . It really feels like a trip back in time . I'm sure there isn't much that has changed since the mid 70's . There are vinyl album covers all over the back wall . The light fixtures looked... More

Have been going to the Elite since high school. 30+ years on it's now a nostalgic place to take our son to see the style of eating from years gone by. But honestly the food is mediocre. Might still be great for it's breakfasts but not so much for lunch. Asked if all the food was made in house and... More

Great traditional food. I love the booths for comfort. Been in Penticton since around 1729, I think. The older demographic tend to love this place. I see why. Very cozy and down to earth. I love the club sang which. You will too.

A long-time fave - we always stop at the Elite when in Penticton. The decor is vintage but the home-style food is up to par. Good breakfast - quick service, large servings, hot coffee, great for families... and a little 50's memorabilia.
