Please note: the Blue Plate Diner is Closed and has been replaced by an overpriced Mediocre Italian Restaurant which is not family oriented.

Even breakfast is bad here . No flavor and they are usually out of everything . Not run very well . The best thing about the place is the waitresses and location other then that keep driving .

The last time my wife and I were here during the late Fall, the food was ordinary at best. This was the third or fourth time we visited, and each experience was mediocre. Why did we go back? Because it was local, and an inexpensive place for a quick mid-week meal. But after the last time, we agreed: no more.... More

I ate here for breakfast twice this summer in Cape May. It was nothing besides average diner fare on the pricey side. The large building was on the empty side so it's obvious that it's not really a local hotspot.

We were staying nearby and decided one night to try it. What do you expect to eat at a diner? Diner food and it was fine. We had ice cream for dessert and it was very good. The place looks tired and old, can use an update. Our server was friendly and gave us good service.

We ended up here for dinner, not really knowing what we wanted. The waitress was great, honest and friendly...the food was a hit, tasty and much better than I expected. Ambience needs to be upgraded, the place looks tired and old....

We should have known better when we walked into a deserted dining room, but our kid was hungry and the other 2 places we tried to go to had a long wait so we decided to eat here. Big mistake! The soup was bland and fluorescent yellow. The spaghetti w/meatballs was abysmal. The sauce was bland and the meatballs were... More

I have been eating here for years. It was great when it was the Rainbow Dinner. It should be called “Un fit for human consumption Dinner”. It has been going downhill for the last few years and has reached a point that I WILL NEVER eat there again. The staff is uncaring and lazy, the floors and tables are dirty... More

I've had several meals at the Blue Plate Diner in the past year or so, and overall I would rate it as average at best. On my most recent visit, I had one of their $9.95 specials, Chicken Croquettes, and I would rate that meal below average. A cup of soup was included and that was good, but the chicken... More
