50s atmosphere, Blue Plate specials, meatloaf, chicken, green beans, fried okra, sweet potato fries, burgers, etc. and milk shakes made with Brewers ice cream. Restaurant was clean and appealing. Server was friendly and competent.

The last several days, I've been only eating vegetables. I really thought being a Diner, there would be more choices for vegetables than they had. Don't get me wrong, the field peas and the cabbage was good; but there were just too few choices. So...More

The food and service was awesome. Their Deluxe Salad was delicious as was the chicken. Definitely worth a visit. They also are relatively inexpensive.

The greatest thing about Blue Ribbon is that the staff has always been friendly and prompt. The food is a notch above fast food and it's good. Not fancy but it's been consistent for me.

We should have left after being taken to a table with a fly sitting in the syrup caked on the side. After opening the menu, we discovered that this "diner" doesn't serve breakfast. Again, should have left. There was no coffee brewed (on a Sunday...More

Service was friendly. Other than the cheese curds, food was not that good. My meal was over cooked and dry. Was surprised this place was rated so high. Definitely better places to eat in the area.

My friend ordered the Salad with mixed greens, cranberries and grilled chicken. I ordered the Grilled Chicken Salad with iceberg lettuce. Next time, I'll take her choice.

Everything I saw coming out of the kitchen seemed like it arrived at the restaurant prepackaged and frozen. I didn't see anything that was freshly made except the salads. You may have to call the restaurant and see if they... More
