“pretty cool diner”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

We stopped in on our way back to Connecticut. We are from South Africa so diners are not something we are are used to. this one was great, a bit of a retro feel with some quirky signs inside the diner. The service we received was fast and friendly. We ate breakfast and were all very happy. no complaints at all.

“As good a diner as you'll get anywhere”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

The Blue Plate had en extensive menu and reasonably priced. Service was first class and it also had a well stocked bar. I have been to so many diners that are not licenced this made a real change. To my mind it was not your average diner

We ate here twice - once seafood once steak / burger and both times the meal was gorgeous.

If your in this area give it a try you will not be disappinted

“Excellent place for breakfast”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

This was a great place for breakfast. I loved the corned beef hash omelette made from scratch and served with rye toast. It is a welcome change from hotel breakfasts and reasonably priced.

“Horrible food & service”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

The food was not homemade & it was expensive. Meatloaf was 2 patties of hamburger steak w/ can gravy. Julienne vegetables were drenched in oil. The chicken pot pie was canned creamed chicken soup w/ puff pastry sitting on top? No side dished listed. Appetizers $9.99 for spring rolls. I knew when we walked in on a Friday night that w/ only 2 tables occupied at 7pm we should of walked away, the locals must stay away in droves.

“So-So”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

Went here for breakfast before heading home to PA. The atmosphere and service was good. If you are here for breakfast, don't order the pancakes...they were not the best...very heavy and not what I would expect pancakes to taste like...coffee was okay. Don't think I would go here again unless I ordered something different...like eggs. Not sure I would even go back for lunch??? Definitely not dinner.
