I frequent Chattanooga a couple of times a year and Blue Plate is always on my list. A fun diner atmosphere with great food and a full bar, along with a beautiful view of the river. Dogs welcome on the outside patio!

Delicious food, great service, very reasonably priced, dog friendly. During our first visit I had the fried chicken wrap and my husband had the fried chicken taco with pineapple salsa. We had the mashed potatoes and broccoli casserole as sides, both of which were also delicious. This was one of our favorite restaurants in Chattanooga. We loved it so much... More

Grilled cheese and soup for all of us! Great grilled cheese with tomato and mayo and the potato soup was thick and rich! Reasonably priced for those at about $8.

Although it was a warm day and few people were on the patio, the diner, as The Blue Plate defines itself, had several people inside. Everything I had turned out to be heavy on the cheese and salt, leaving me feeling sluggish for the rest of the day. The service was nice, and I observed that the wait staff was... More

We ate lunch here between visiting the two different aquarium buildings. We ordered a fried chicken wrap with grilled green beans and cheese grits. The food was pretty tasty, but I thought the wrap could have used more chicken! It seemed to have few little pieces of fried chicken but more of the toppings like tomatoes. The service was friendly... More

We went around 1:45 on Tuesday afternoon and got right in. We had chef salad, soup/sandwich, kids chicken fingers plus drinks. We took my 2 yr old and she loved the big booth. All big portions and good food. It was $35 before tip so thought it was a little pricey for lunch but overall very good experience.

We ate breakfast on a Sunday morning. Very busy with about a 30 minute wait. Our waiter was very attentive and kept the coffee cups full. I had the French toast with bacon which was just okay. Had to cut the toast with a knife. Also had a side of cheese grits, which were tasty. However be warned they have... More

Right by the aquarium, this place could really price gouge for location and proximity. But the food was delicious and the prices were very fair. I had the chicken and pancake, and that pancake was so light and airy. Incredible! Hubs had the grilled cheese which was stuffed with pulled pork and mac-n-cheese. Great view of the neighboring park on... More
