We are starting a monthly retirement breakfast and we have been eating at Blue Plate for the past year. The service is great and they have plenty of space to host a gathering. The menu has a good selection and the food is delicious. The breakfast omelets are huge and their biscuits are also very good. So glad we've found... More

Supposed to be one of the best breakfast places in HSV, I found it to be just OK. I asked for my homefries to be well done, which means "well done" !! Sent them back twice; hey never got the white center cooked. Good coffee tho!

Wide variety of foods for all tastes. The place was pretty clean and located in a shopping center. The roads were being worked on and it was hard to get in. If you have a large family or guests a good place to try.

We had heard many good things about this place but every time we drove by it was packed & people were standing outside waiting to get in(that's a good thing). We decided to get there early one day & try what all the hype was about. I ordered the chicken finger platter w/ mashed potatoes & fried okra, my hubby... More

Wife and I love BLTs. These were the worst we've had by far. Tasteless bacon, artificial tomatoes served dry, NO mayonnaise, and I had asked for extra mayonnaise. Had to flag down a different waitress who brought us a bunch of little packets. Peach cobbler was terrible, it's just peach mush. And they don't serve ice cream!

Blue Plate is another concept by local restaurant owner David Martin. David is a genius at creating an authentic experience and then backing it up with almost perfect service. The food at Blue Plate includes an outstanding short-order breakfast with eggs and country ham and grits and all the rest. You are likely to find the mayor or some other... More

Blue Plate is a Huntsville staple! Their new location on South Parkway is huge - perfect for their busy lunch crowds. I am constantly trying different things on their menu but their lunch specials are always great because the menu items change daily. The strawberry shortcake is to die for!

After having lived in HSV for 8 years, we finally decided to eat here. Service was fast, friendly, and the place was clean. I'll give it that! I had chicken salad on croissant with fries. Couple of points here: The fries had an odd taste... Almost like they were using the same fryer to fry donuts in?? They were good,... More

Today I went for breakfast. I ordered coffee because I had already eaten. My co-worker ordered 3 eggs, bacon and grits. No toast or biscuit. Coffee to drink. Our check total was $14.45 before tip. I have also eaten lunch there. Overall, I would say the food is good. It has it's ups and downs.
