We stopped in on the spur of the moment after we left the Aquarium - I loved the seating outside, with a great view of the river. I ordered the portabello mushroom sandwich and it was the best I've ever had. Even my husband, the carnivore, said it was delicious. Service was good - food great - view of the... More

My wife and I stopped in The Blue Plate after visiting the aquarium from a recommendation. It's a pleasant place to visit, but it is in a location that's a little tough to find. My wife and I each ordered salads that were wrong upon delivery. I had the wrong dressing on mine, and my wife was missing shrimp from... More

The menu here is small, but the food is great. If you like a burger or salad, this place is for you. Their homemade chips are a nice treat and their service was friendly and fast. They do serve Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner all day. So, If you want Breakfast at 2pm, you have that option as well. It's a... More

I couldn't believe the wait time to be seated was 15-20 minutes when the restaurant was only half occupied at 2:30 on a Sunday afternoon. There were several parties which left the restaurant while we waited. The hostesses were seen slouched over the stand with chin in hand daydreaming when we decided to jump the queue and sit outside in... More

We visited the Tennessee Aquarium and walked into the food court. There was a horrendous grease smell so we walked right out. Took a walk just a block away and came across The Blue Plate. The service was excellent. I ordered the summer salad which was good. My traveling companions all had the pulled pork sandwich which they said was... More

I remember coming here years ago when visiting family and thought it was such an awesome/different atmosphere. Now that I live in Chattanooga my boyfriend and I decided to check it out. It has a completely different look. I didn't even recognize the inside. It was still really cool. We were seated in a area by the kitchen, which wasn't... More

I really liked this establishment. Its in a beautiful location of town right near the riverfront and other cool places Chattanooga has to offer. My server's name was Steven and he was outstanding. Ask for him. They use quite a lot of locally grown produce and locally made bread ect. My food was great. I had a burger. The homemade... More

On a very busy Chattanooga Saturday night, after looking for parking for an hour, and walking around trying to get into a restaurant, we walked into The Blue Plate at 8:45 pm and they say us down immediately. We enjoyed two great drinks from the bar, the shrimp Mac n cheese and the double cheeseburger! It was all amazing and... More

High ceilings, open spaces and hard surfaces plus loud music make The Blue Plate unbearably noisy. Signs on the door say no one under 21 after 4pm, so perhaps the nightlife vibe has simply spilled over to lunchtime. Not ideal for conversation, relaxing or hearing yourself think, but perhaps patio seating offers a different story.

Nothing beats quality food and quality service. We went there for lunch on a Friday afternoon. We were having great weather so we sat outside. We were promptly served, ur waitress was friendly and laughed at all my jokes. I'm sure it was because they were all very funny, we'll go with that. My wife had a mixed drink and... More
