Horrible, horrible, horrible. I wish I would of seen the reviews before going. Slow, slow service. When we saw the twice baked potatoes, which had nothing on them, we should of walked out. My husband ordered Rib eye, it was a flank steak. I ordered a Tri-tip sandwich, absolutely NO flavor, no seasoning, cold and I felt like I was... More

We are on vacation and don't frequent bars, but we've been on a mission to find a particular tequila for a friends bday. After stopping at several liquor stores, with no success...why not stop in a bar!! Walked in and Dave was more than helpful, even drew us a map to a high end liquor supplier. Even if we don't...

Hmmm...maybe people really do read reviews. We had sworn this place off, but after what appears to be a full staff replacement, it appears 'The Plate' is working to correct previuos shortcomings. Glad to see it.

This place is a popular watering hole and a long time fixture of tracy.For us old timers,you always end up bumping into a familiar face and catch up on stuff....They have decent live music, especially on weekends though the wait times can be long.This is the kind of place where you can lounge around for hours and have a good...

We had been hiking at Yosemite and were on our way to San Francisco. Our hotel recommended this place and we ended up walking out. We were the only customers in the place, ordered an appetizer and drinks. We got our drinks but our waitress was preoccupied in the corner talking to someone. Kitchen rang the bell for our appetizer... More

Used to frequent this place, but it's off of the rotation after a serious nightmare following a change in management. Long story short, 20 plus minutes to get drinks; 60 plus for food; and the staff just wasn't prepared to serve anyone. Hopefully they get their act together because this place has been around for a long time, I just... More

I went to the Great Plate on a trip through Tracy. It was a quiet night with only a few patrons. The staff was as attentive as expected for the lack of customers. I had a IPA and it was perfectly cold and tasty. I ordered the BBQ chicken club and it was an excellent sandwich. There was a solo... More

This really is not a family place. Many people take there families there, but it is more of a bar that also sells food rather than a restaurant that also sells liquor. I wish them the best. Tracy really needs high quality restaurants, so hopefully someone that cares will invest some time and money in this place.

This place once upon a time had good food and was the place to be and now it's down right terrible. My husband came here on Monday afternoon and there where only 5 other people in the restaurant.
