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

When there is nobody in a restaurant but us and when food comes and you start eating and the whole time not asked how the meal was, let me ask...is that not the bare minimum a restaurant can do? Well I experienced this in June and as well as having to sit and listen to how much tips they made... More

I've eaten at the Elite a couple of times now. And each time it was just average. The interior is kinda cool with an original 50's-60's decor. But it's also kinda junky.

I recently had the pleasure of touring a friend from Ireland through BC and Penticton was one of our major stops. Have spent many summers on OK beach as a child, I was pleasantly surprised to see that much of the charm still remains... including the Elite! Elite has a unqiue charm all to itself. We stopped in for a... More

Love going to the Elite for morning digs.... Great food and original atmosphere of the late 50's. Recommend to everyone who likes a great breakfast.
