This cute little diner is located overlooking river and behind the ice skating rink. The food was really good & service was quick. There is a good variety of food. We were glad we stumbled upon this jewel.

We are here for lunch while visiting the aquarium-it's just across the street. Everything we ate was delicious and fresh with some unique menu items! Fun atmosphere.

All I have to say is BLUE CHIPS, you must get the blue chips. We have ordered tons of things on the menu, nothing even comes close to being as good as the blue chips. We eat them there and then we get two more orders to go! BLUE CHIPS!

Had time for a quick lunch while visiting the city and decided to try the Blue Plate. Not fancy but very clean. Food was typical diner food but the portions were generous and tasty. Definitely worth considering for lunch.

We visited on a windy afternoon and had a great Tennessee chicken and pancakes. Fantastic food with a funky, relaxed atmosphere. Our host Lindsay was charming and knowledgeable and gave us good recommendations from the menu. The milkshakes are to die for!! We would visit regularly if we lived nearby. Cheers :-)

We were recommended the Blue Plate for brunch so went there on our way out of town. They have the best pancakes I've every tasted! They're at least an inch thick, kind of crusty, about the size of a softball. We got the blueberry. Also had Benton's bacon, and an omelet. We split the two dishes, and it was fantastic.... More

We visited as a large group on a saturday afternoon and were quickly seated. Food selection was good and at great prices. Place has a nice decor with a great view. Staff was friendly and very attentive to dietary needs, including food allergies. Everyone enjoyed their lunch. Easy access from aquarium.

The shrimp Mac and cheese was great (hubby had it) and the portobello sandwich was wonderful. Also, they serve Benton's bacon- the best in the world!

Get the homemade Chips with everything and a craft beer. Heaven. We also had their to-die-for Corn chowder. Salads are good. Music is too loud but the food made up for it. Eat outside if you can.

We stayed in downtown Chattanooga and asked the hotel staff where to eat breakfast. They recommended this place. We were pleasantly surprised. The food was good, and the prices were very reasonable. The waitress was attentive and friendly. After breakfast we just walked a few steps and were on the River. I would recommend this place for anyone staying in... More
