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

Felt a bit peckish in the late afternoon, decided to visit Penticton's oldest diner. Inside, the furnishings are obviously vintage and moderately well-maintained, and overall there is some interesting retro decor. There were a couple of big TV screens playing old movies with the sound off. Actual soundtrack in the restaurant was very excellent 50s/60s jazz, at moderately loud-ish dinner... More

We enjoy live music and heard through friends that the Elite is attracting some interesting acts so we thought we'd take in a Thursday evening show. Ordered salads. At $13 each, we expected a good salad. The dressing was simply some cheap oil with dark vinegar, the spinach was wet and the bacon that the menu promised was non exsistant.... More

I'm not here to talk about the Elite's food. If you're looking for a great meal, go somewhere else. But.....you can't help but love the old diner atmosphere and the special event nights......on Wednesdays they have vinyl night where different people take turns playing records and being a 'dj'. They also have live bands some nights, and occasionally karaoke (I'm... More

not great. it;s a bit of a greasy spoon dinner that has been in Penticton Forever! The flavors are blah. The soup tastes like it came out of a can. The burgers are the cheap beef pre-made frozen patties. Not terrible not great.

An old style restaurant where you can mill around. Friendly staff. It's been around for awhile. The food is OK....nothing to write home about. But they have great live music at night.
