That statement alone hurts, but also a testament to how good their pancakes are. (even beating my own cooking :-(). Pride won't let me agree, but the pancakes are very nice and the loaded hahbrowns are delightful. The place itself is situated perfectly to watch the river or catch a bite before going to the aquarium or IMax, both are... More

My husband and I stopped in here to take a break in between aquariums. That is one plus - this restaurant is literally two seconds from the aquarium. Four stars because the food was fine - it just wasn't anything too special, especially for the price. I got the turkey club which was good - had an avocado spread which... More

I passed through Chattanooga on a road trip. I chose this restaurant because of a bill board and it advertised itself as "on the riverfront". It is definitely NOT on the river front. It is the closest building on it's block to the river, but about a five minute walk. Don't come for the river as you will need binoculars,... More

Another trip to Blue Plate proved that the previous experiences were not just luck. Blue Plate consistently delivers great food and great service in a bright, modern atmosphere. We enjoyed another great breakfast of killer pancakes and the steak/eggs special. Pancakes are a local favorite and Blue Plate serves them up as they should. Piping hot with butter/syrup on the...

Went to the Blue Plate as a last resort effort to eat before a show. No one was there maybe three tables including us. No worries is was a snowy cold night. The service was great but the burger was lack luster. I did have the blue buffalo chips that were pretty good but I have had better in other... More

The coffee was so wonderful. I had a cup of corn chowder which was delicious. I ordered one of the evening specials. This was more than enough food. Wonderful service and very good food.

After a long day at a cheer competition was looking for a quick bite to eat and stumbled upon the Blue Plate. Ordered the Flat iron steak with mashed potatoes, and broccoli casserole. All three were excellent and full of flavor. My child ordered the hamburger from the children's menu and she said it was one of the better burgers... More

First time to visit The Blue Plate and was not disappointed. We tried the Chicken and Pancake and it was delicious. The hash browns were pretty good but tended to over power the pancake and chicken with their savory taste. They would have been great as a meal to itself. Also great and friendly service. I would highly recommend.

Great breakfast. Everything was so fresh and the bacon has the most wonderful flavor. Service was a little slow that may have been because i only saw one cook and alot of servers. It was worth the wait i have to say.
