We’re visiting Chattanooga this weekend and woke up late for breakfast at the hotel so I decided to get Father’s Day breakfast for my friend at The Blue Plate. It was really bad. I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant.

Close to river walk, aquarium, shuttle bus. Nice view of river inside or outside. Clean and modern. Reasonably priced. Good selection of entrees and sides. Nice waiters. I had fried chicken strips which were crispy and plump white meat with dipping sauces. Very satisfying.

My husband and I went to grab a quick bite. I ordered the Rosemary Chicken. I do like the fact that they use local sources for their menu items. The staff was very attentive and friendly. The good was average. Great location if you're downtown.

Very slow service. Food is ok. Everything is a la cart, with the price of a small chicken sandwich being over $9 (75 cents extra to add hot sauce lol) . I guess the prices reflect the location right across from the Aquarium. We didn't...More

We decided to have drinks here because it had outside seating with a view of the river. The staff were very pleasant and the drinks reasonably priced. Very nice indeed to the extent that we called back the next evening for a repeat.

Yes, they did since I had salad. But you can call them to check and I think they might have their menu on line.
