We have recently had a number of meals in the Blue Plate Diner. All have been superb, the American breakfast, and the Garbage fries were my favorites. The staff are always welcoming, and can't do enough to help. The atmosphere is really good. A proper diner. Look out for the sayings painted on the roof beams. Once you have visited,... More

We stayed in a nearby motel with no breakfast offered, and this diner was their recommendation. We try to eat healthy, and there really wasn't much to choose from except eggbeaters and a $5.29 bowl of fruit. I would have liked more healthy choices such as yogurt, granola, whole grain breads and bagels and english muffins. If you are into... More

Neat diner atmosphere but none of the grunge of an old diner. My dinner of pasta carbonara was tasty and filling. My friend had shepherds pie which he said was good. On the down side service was a little slow even though there were only 12-15 people in the place besides us. I suspect weeknights off prime tourist season are... More

We had breakfast here on the recommendation of the hotel. It was Ok, but nothing to rave about. Service was good and the place is clean and has typical diner decor.

We had spotted this in our travels and decided to eat there for Breakfast. We weren't disappointed. Very good breakfast. Coffee was hot strong and good. Eggs done well. Bacon crisp and tasty. Rye toast different but good. Not impressed with the homefries but overall very good.

I ordered mom's meatloaf and it was good, but not great. However, my husband's turkey dinner was so good! It was like Thanksgiving in October! Yum! Restaurant is really, really clean and staff really, really courteous and prompt. It looks like this would be a good breakfast choice too.

They have a great atmosphere the servers are dressed in kind of 50s ish style and cool sayings on the walls but the food is totally the star here. The fish and chips were out of this world. big pieces of fresh fish and the fries were great, not the standard. the prices were good service was fast and attentive.

This is the restaurant recommended for breakfast by the Howard Johnson staff. And a popular local spot - it's very worthwhile. Full diner atmosphere and menu, plus good food and service. Hit this spot!
