“Biscuit Time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Omg!!! The biscuits and gravy are the best. The restaurant is charming. It has a wonderful cottage feel in decorum. The restaurant is very clean and comfortable. Most of the food on the menu is your standard breakfast fare but the biscuits are really really good. If you go there.... just say biscuits and gravy please.

“Poor Service and questionable cleanliness”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

the waitresses were arguing in front of the customers (and they had a full house) and then our waitress smelled liked she hadn't bathed in a week and looked extremely unkept. She was rude and obviously mad.

“Always Wonderful Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Blue Plate never lets me down when I'm craving good breakfast food. Pancakes, waffles, whatever you want - it's all great! I highly recommend it. It gets busy, but they know how to move the crowds through.

“Ok/Standard Food, Service! Not so much!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012 via mobile

Recommended by friends and Trip Advisor, this establishment had ok breakfast food but service was not good.....Coffee not refilled without having to ask,and when you do ask, the waitresses breathe heavy sighs and appear put out when helping other customers besides their own. I was disappointed and would not rush back or drive through the city for this place.
