Good simple spot

This is not fine dining. It is fairly simple diner type food. It's always good, not great thought. Great location and view. Always crowded. Great outdoor seating area.

Great southern cooking. Wonderful service! The fried chicken, mashed potatoes with the skins, hash browns, and broccoli casserole all have a delicious home cooked flavor. The corn bread is dense, sweet and scrumptious. Definitely a tasty dinner (the kind you keep eating after you are full).

We ate at this spot and I would go back at any opportunity. A casual atmosphere with a bistro flare. I had a fried chicken wrap with a melted cheese and the tortilla was fresh - it was great. The Mac and Cheese is phenomenal and I wish I'd gotten the Shrimp and Mac - but I could not eat... More

We got there late and actually ate at the Local. The food was excellent and the service was above average. I'll make it a point to go back there when I'm in town.

We came in starving and we left with full and very happy stomachs! The food was very good and creative. I had the loaded grilled cheese which had mac and cheese on the bottom and pulled pork on top with american cheese holding it all together with homemade chips! You get so much food for such an awesome price! We... More

Three kids and two parents, all with a particular idea of what makes a good meal out = somebody's going to get disappointed. Except at Blue Plate. Blue cheese chips, unique salads, consistently good sides, amazing sandwiches, breakfast, even a bar! And, the tastiest chicken tender we have had. Outdoor seating is appealing on temperate days. Staff only generally friendly,... More

I though this was going to be a meat and three using local sources. NOT. loved the fried pickles. my potato soup was above average, but a lot of the food we saw passing by us looked wonderful. great location and view. closed on Mondays.
