“2nd time around, still love it!”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

We stopped in here Saturday evening before the Christmas parade. This was our 2nd time to eat here and after the first time we knew we had to come back! This is a MUST stop place every time we are in the area. Their pancakes are to die for! I dream about them! lol

“Good atmosphere and service, cool appetizer”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

Enjoyed wine and appetizers, the grilled green beans were both unique in my experience and delicious. Nice to find something that isn't fried!

“Upscale "diner" with a view of the river”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Good comforting diner food in downtown Chattanooga looking out on the river. The Blue Plate is not exceptional on anything we tried but consistently very good. They use many local ingredients and products in their food which probably makes them so consistent in their quality. Good burgers and sandwiches and I usually order the meat loaf which I always enjoy. All the sides are good southern comfort food particularly the grits! Love them grits! This is not a bargain priced diner but serves diner type food at a good value for the portion size (large) and quality. The service is up and down depending on the individual and if they are very busy. I have not tried it but breakfast comes highly recommended as well. When you visit downtown Chatt, give them a try! You will leave very satisfied.

“Good Comfort Food”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

If you are wanting a good breakfast down on the waterfront or comfort food that can range from burgers and sandwiches to vegetable plates, this is the place for you. It is a diner, so it can be a bit noisy, but the location right on the river is nice. It is within walking distance of most of the downtown hotels and the Aquarium. Adjacent to the Blue Plate is its own cocktail bar area, but you also can order any liquid libation from the bar to be served in the restaurant. We enjoyed one of their nice light lagers on draft with tasty burgers.
