“Poor Service and questionable cleanliness”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

the waitresses were arguing in front of the customers (and they had a full house) and then our waitress smelled liked she hadn't bathed in a week and looked extremely unkept. She was rude and obviously mad.

“Always Wonderful Food!”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

Blue Plate never lets me down when I'm craving good breakfast food. Pancakes, waffles, whatever you want - it's all great! I highly recommend it. It gets busy, but they know how to move the crowds through.

“Ok/Standard Food, Service! Not so much!”
Reviewed December 26, 2012 via mobile

Recommended by friends and Trip Advisor, this establishment had ok breakfast food but service was not good.....Coffee not refilled without having to ask,and when you do ask, the waitresses breathe heavy sighs and appear put out when helping other customers besides their own. I was disappointed and would not rush back or drive through the city for this place.

“Not a good experience”
Reviewed December 13, 2012 via mobile

Had lunch at Blue Plate Cafe in East Memphis today. The dining room was dirty-/ floor unswept. We were a bit after the lunch crowd. Our server began promptly, then ignored us after the food came out. Had the fried chicken with two sides- chicken was overlooked and tough, sweet potato was burned on the bottom and ice cold inside, and green beans were lackluster with no flavor. I've been here in the past, and the service and food was better. This was a poor experience at best. Won't be back for awhile if ever.
