My extended family often gathers at local restaurants and one of our favorites is the Elite Restaurant in downtown Jackson. The service is always friendly and attentive and the food is delicious. The traditional selection on the menu is varied and reasonably priced. The family atmosphere is relaxed and a reminder of a more civilized time when dining was not... More

The Elite has been around for many years. My family has been dining here since the 1960's. They are known for their Veal Cutlet. They have excellent fresh fish, fried Shrimp and Fried Oysters. They have excellent onion rings and their rolls are the BEST EVER!

From the outside I was expecting a modern, maybe hip place. Totally not what I got. This place is in desperate need of a remodel. It's like an old-school diner with the service bar all along one side of the long dinning room. You can see everything they're doing, from pouring your drinks to preparing your salad. There is carpet... More

We ate here for breakfast and the food was extremely mediocre. My biscuit sandwich came with an egg that was almost hard boiled and the biscuit was cold, my partner's pancakes unremarkable. We would not come here again

Our church group of 9 visited this restaurant at 11:00 am. We were served a very small plate of iceberg lettuce with one 1/4 inch piece of tomato and a similar sized piece of radish. The lettuce was wilted and brown on the edges. The dressing for this "salad" was on the table and was a secret as to what... More

We happened upon this lovely restaurant while visiting Jackson recently. We were welcomed warmly and enjoyed a very special meal. The red snapper sautéed in olive oil was light and sweet, very fresh and delicious. My husband loved the German pot roast special and we both appreciated the fresh salad and vegetables. Charming hostess related some fun tales of this... More

This is the best fried chicken I've had anywhere!! It tastes like your grandmother made it. If you are not getting it on the Tuesday or Thursday lunch special you might want to call it in about 20 minutes ahead. They don't cook it till you order and good chicken takes time to fry.

Mr Pete should have shared his secret roll recipe... They are still good but not like he used to do them. The menu may need updating with healthier choices like fresh veggies. Still a fun place to eat. Just a few of the good fun waitress are left.
