Pretty good place to have lunch but they don't have a specific lunch menu. Nice surroundings by the river. Server was great!! Servings of food not that big from what I saw you don't get sides unless you pay for them or order a large dinner meal.

When we first went in the hostess said it was a 45 minute wait but we could be seated now if we wanted a high top table. That was fine with us so she directed us through a door behind her station. The only problem was it was a different establishment. The waiter said they shared the same kitchen and... More

The restaurant was packed, but we did not have to wait too long for a table. We all really enjoyed our brunch. Everything was decently priced and tasted good. Our server was extremely nice.

Went here because the reviews were great and was impressed. I was spending the day at the aquarium and this is right next to it. The first time I went was by myself for lunch. I sat at the bar and had Edward Norton for my server/bartender, (I'm so sorry I can't remember your real name!) who was great. I... More

This wasn't our first trip here and will not be our last. The Aretha Frankenstein pancakes are still Amazing! Bacon was cooked perfectly, and the biscuits and gravy were divine. Gus was a great, attentive waiter who kept the atmosphere of the Blue Plate fun. Highly recommend!

Our group of four had a great dinner here while traveling during spring break. Everyone enjoyed their food from pancakes to fried chicken Caesar salad to milkshakes. The staff was friendly and helpful. Large comfortable fabric booths face the river for great scenic views as well as help keep the restaurant quieter than many others. Kid and adult friendly with...

Imagine a strawberry vinegarette on a fresh crisp salad with slivers of almonds and ripe tomatoes along with a side of perfectly prepared asparagus and some hearty corn chowder. I'm in serious foodie heaven!

My 3 yr. old and I were in a hurry so we sat in the bar area of Blue Plate. The servers were so accommodating knowing that we needed to eat quickly. I was surprised how fantastic the food was. I had a cheese burger and it was one of the best I have ever had. My son had a... More
