Had a family dinner last night with 8 folks. Everyone was pleased with not only the food but the service too. Highly recommend.

This place feels like it's from a long bygone era when men ate thrice reboiled peas and the gravy comes straight from the bottle right onto freshly thawed calf's liver that has the texture of leather. If not for the canned beer, I half expected spitoons under every table. It has the charm of an ant suspended in amber but... More

Dear M/M Eidaromlag, Thank you for your recent review of our restaurant. I feel that you may have gained an incorrect impression regarding our restaurant. The calves liver has been well-received for many years and the gravy is made daily from scratch as well as all of our side dishes. As you know a restaurant strives to be at 100%... More

We both had the Mexican Enchiladas, which they are known for. Delicious as always and wonderful rolls. Customer service excellent. The restaurants downtown have had a rough 2 years due to Capital Street renovation. But they have hung in there with a good attitude and a smile on their faces. The Elite is a very comfortable restaurant with soft music... More

The food tasted like it was just warmed up frozen food. Very bland, nothing special. The decor is very dated and overall it just didn't seem very clean. I wasn't comfortable drinking from the glasses and chose instead a bottled root beer. The food was edible but just not very good and very overpriced.

Best Enchiladas I have ever eaten. The Elite is a longstanding part of Jackson tradition. The rolls are another great part of this restaurant.

For all of the hype and history about this place I was very disappointed in the food. The open faced beef was tough and flavorless. The new potatoes looked and tasted like they were from a can. The navy beans and rolls were the highlight of the meal. Definitely not the worst meal in Jackson, but was not in line... More

3 of us went to the Elite for lunch. The menu was very broad. We elected to go with the daily special. We all had a different entree--snapper, roast beef, turkey and dressing. all the entrees were excellent. The sides were very good and the rolls were worth the trip. None of us could finish our meal- the included bread... More

We stayed a night in Jackson on our US holiday road trip from Memphis to New Orleans. I was expecting more from Jackson but at 8pm we drove around with Trip Advisor recommendations and either nothing was open or we didn't like the look of it. Losing hope, we came across the Elite Restaurant. Very old school with a mature... More

Went to the Elite for a business lunch. I don't live in Jackson but the client I took out just raved about the lunches so we went. Let me just say, yes the rolls are good. I ordered the chicken salad sandwich. When you have a restaurant in the south and have chicken salad on the menu, it better be... More

I had lunch at Elite Restaurant today, July 3, 2014. I had one of the plate lunch specials - Gulf Shrimp and Jambalaya. It was served with buttered corn and a small salad. There were also roles that appeared, and tasted like, they had been home made. Butter (real butter) accompanied the rolls. The service was very good. The Jambalaya... More
