Love Blue Plate for Brunch!

Our boys love going to Blue Plate when we visit them at McCallie. Always a treat for weekend brunch. Great food and fun atmosphere...enjoy eating outside and watching the riverfront activity.

We came to Chattanooga for our 35th anniversary. Were strolling downtown when we decided to stop at the Blue Plate for lunch. After a 20 minute wait, we were sat in a booth (holes in the seats both sides). My husband, who is an avid Sam Adams drinker asked the young lady for a beer. She informed him they didn't... More

We came with a larger party (5 adults, 1 child, 1 highchair) and they had trouble seating us during the lunch rush. Our waiter did a great job making sure we were taken care of, but the food wasn't exceptional by any means. I was entirely thrown off by the house Blue Chips, for some reason, and didn't find them...

Love this location right downtown with a view of the water and bridge if you choose to sit in their cute outdoor bar and patio. The extensive drink menu and seafood offerings are great. We love to hit this place for a drink and app or a romantic date night dinner.

Chef salad is huge! Double patty melt cooked perfectly. Fried pickles - awesome! Great lunch place, if you are at the Aquarium. Highly recommend!

Had the beef stroganoff. Was very disappointed! There was maybe one ounce of meat and the rest was mushrooms and gravy. Served with rice that was mushy.

They lost me quickly when I showed up solo. The restaurant had as many seats empty as they had full, but the hostess immediately led me to single diner hell - the table right by the bathroom or kitchen doors. I asked for and was seated elsewhere - but the reflex of "single diner, dump them in the worst seat... More

My husband and I ate a later breakfast here on Sunday. Very busy place but we chose the open seating outside. I had a order of the short stack blueberry pancakes with bacon. Very delicious. The pancakes are very thick unlike the norm. The pancakes are made using the Aretha Frankensteins mix. (We went there first but the wait was... More

Very thick pancakes on their Sunday breakfast menu. Delicious! Had a couple of drinks and an appetizer the evening before on their patio. Very good view of the river from there and nice atmosphere. Would definitely go back.
