Nice view

Advantage for this place is the view of the river while you eat. I noticed some patrons had their dogs with them at the outside eating area while they ate. So if you don't want dogs around I suggest eating inside. The food was okay, nothing spectacular but the prices were reasonable.

The steak in the salad was much too done. Hamburgers overcooked. Decor was nice: blue and stainless steel.

I joined some family for dinner at The Blue Plate. They had eaten there several times before and recommended it as a good place. I had the rosemary chicken with mac and cheese and grilled green beans, all very good. We also had some delicious cornbread. Service was great. I would love to go back again.

It is seldom that you can find a traditional yet unique breakfast in this somewhat upscale diner atmosphere. My omelet had an unusual blend of gouda and buttermilk cheddar. Add bacon, toast with apple cinnamon jelly, and awesome coffee, my day was good to go. I was seated immediately and food was served expeditiously. Quirky and yet classy environment added... More

My husband and I have been here several times and the food is always good, fresh tasting and delicious. However on this recent visit, the service was not good. The waiter helped two other tables, seated after we were, before asking what we wanted. Never introduced himself and only came back twice to see what we needed. Most of the... More

Best breakfast in the downtown/ north shore area hands down! Menu is fresh and not over priced. Parking is easy and in walkable distance if you go around the building opposite the aquarium side. Great patio space for nice days!

We probably made a mistake trying to get a meal here on a Sunday Morning around 10 AM. The teenage hostess informed us it would be a 15 minute wait. We were given an electronic notification device and sat on a bench seat directly across from the hostess station. I notice that there were A LOT of staff at this... More

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.
