Cool spot but the food and service a so-so

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... read 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.

We had lunch at this restaurant last weekend and We were so disappointed. The desert that we had looked like they had been in the frig for a few months. The service was terrible and we had to wait for a long time to get what we wanted and the bill. The staff said she will give us the bill... More

We had breakfast here twice on this most recent trip. I really like "small town" main street restaurants..this place served up a good breakfast, and the service was friendly and pretty efficient, though the manager/owner? who did nothing while the 1 server ran to look after everyone, should pitch in or leave during times of not enough staff. The decor... More

The service here was good and there eggs Benny was excellent. We sat on the patio which was great to people watch. The interior has some quirky items on display.

Sat down and waited 10 minutes while the lone server walked past us about 8 times. Then she asks "has anyone helped you?". As the only server, I'm not sure who she thought might help us. In any case waited a few more minutes after that and still no drinks or menus, so we left. Went to Clancy's and had... More

People go to the Elite for two reasons, to drink beer and listen to bands, and to admire the perfect 1950's decor (who knew early plastics would last this long). However the waitstaff is hit and miss, the food is average dinner food, and takes forever to get to the table (short order?). Drop in, have a milkshake, which you... More

My friend and I had breakfast on the patio Saturday morning. I love the quirky atmosphere of the place with vintage 50's accents, it's got a lot of character. The food is reasonably priced, the service was good and the food was what you would expect from a traditional diner experience. I enjoyed my breakfast while people watching at the... More
