Small place but pretty good. Pancakes were very dry because they were cooked to long. Omelette was great and so were the home fries! Waitress was very nice and attentive and did a good job on balancing coming to the table and letting us eat. The establishment was very clean, not much parking though so hopefully it's not busy when... More

We ate here for breakfast on our visit to Newport. The menu was extensive and we didn't have to wait for a table. I ordered the "healthy" Greek breakfast wrap and although it was yummy, I had to keep draining the grease out of it so I don't believe it was healthy. My husband had the corned beef hash eggs...

Best diner I've been in so far. Imagine a team of professionals, everybody helping each other, no one missing a beat. Our waitress was the best, the kind of waitress you hope for, a pro's pro! All our meals showed up quickly (and the place was packed), all cooked to order as we asked. Corn beef hash - great, rye... More

Went a few times. The food is good and reasonably priced. My daughter likes their food. Had breakfast and lunch there. My daughter likes the pancakes and I like the BLT sandwich.

My family travels often to Newport, RI and we stay in the hotels on the strip of West Main Road in Middletown. We frequent this diner due to it's location and ease of accommodating us when other local restaurants are full or closed. The diner is large and clean - can accommodate large groups of people at one time, and... More

We were on our way to a wedding and decided we needed some lunch before we got to the reception later. Saw the Blue Plate on the way and stopped in for lunch. I had some clam chowder and an egg salad sandwich, both were very good. My daughter had coconut chicken strips, also very good! This was a very... More

This was recommended by someone while visiting the Middletown area and food was good, hot and restaurant was clean. More expensive than I expected, but then it is the east coast. Milk shakes were $5 each and weren't very big. Fast friendly service.

I recently had lunch with a friend at the Blue Plate and we very much enjoyed our choices. They have a lot on the menu so there are plenty of choices. And, they have Greek food!

Ate lunch here. The food was good, but the prices were rather high in comparison to comparable restaurants at home. This may just be a reaction to "sticker shock" due to the geographical location. In either case, we were on vacation, and prepared to absorb the cost.
