I would not eat here again. All the food tasted the same. Terrible fries - limp and greasy. Portions are huge but personally I'd rather have a smaller slice of a nicer pie!! Service was okay but you get the impression the server would rather be some place else. The locals seem to love it tho' so maybe I'm missing... More

A very friendly family restaurnat with great service. Kelsey does not walk from table to table but practically jogs! Simple food but of good quality. Flat iron steak salad was excellent as well as the euro dog.

after our catastrophic experience at the dolce vita in Hope on our way up to the okanagan, (see review ) we did not expect such a nice meal . Split pea soup home made, delicious , and grilled chicken with salad . This is a great stop and the atmosphere of the diner brings you back to the 50s movies... More

Don't be confused by the sigh - it is not a drive-in, but rather a full service family restaurant and a walk up/in ice dream station. We had both dinner and breakfast there and the service was friendly and very fast, and the food well prepared and hot.

We went here for a hamburger after a long day's drive and were brought a treat of the Canadian treat poutine to sample. The food was delicious. We went back for breakfast the next morning because we couldn't resist the cinnamon rolls.

Or breakfast took more than 45 minutes to come to our table. The reason was because of the boiled eggs that we ordered. Frustrating if you are trying to get on the road to travel. Other than that the food was good and the service staff did their best to mitigate the lethargy of the kitchen.

You don't necessarily expect a good meal in a small town, so Hope Drive Inn was a nice surprise. We had chicken grilled sandwiches, with side salads and some really good yam fries. That I found out were not home made but were darn good. Service was pleasant, attentive and helpful. A great alternative around Hope.

This is an old long standing eatery in hope . We were lucky enough to have been staying beside it and walked over for dinner wow what a feast and affordable too. I recommend the chicken cordon blu home made and juicy and stuffed. The veggies were cooked so perfect ..it was so good we went and had breakfast there... More
