Had a delightful breakfast with friends; everyone's order was large, tasty, well prepared, and totally worth the price. If you eat mid-morning, you might as well skip lunch because the portion size will keep you going all day long. I would DEFINITELY go back (and the servers are great).

Went a month ago for lunch and there was a 30 minute wait. Food was fresh and hot. Went for dinner this week and the place was practically empty, yet service was poor. Food was tepid.

We went for breakfast. I read reviews and they were good so thought we would try it out. The food was good. The only thing is...while we were sitting there waiting for our food....one of their workers....bald head, dark skinned, took his hand and wiped his nose. I saw him go around corner than come right back out. There is... More

I sit here writing this review as my belly digests the awesomeness we just enjoyed. This is “comfort food” at it’s absolute finest. This was our first visit to the Blue Plate Café and we are huge fans. Excellent service and food. Loved the vintage Huntsville photos. What did we eat? Me: southern fried catfish. Wife: pot roast, mashed potatoes... More

People kept telling me about this diner, how good it was, and they were right! Meat and 2 or 3, plenty of choices, dessert, good, good price, hoppin' lunch atmosphere...good luck finding a good parking place!

I have eaten here several times. The portions are huge and the prices are fair. If you order out, they do not put your items on a divided plate with a lid. Each item is placed into an individual container with a lid. I have tried several items and they have always been good. The staff is very pleasant and... More

I came here for breakfast based on the reviews I read. The hostess was very friendly when I walked in and I sat at the counter. Bobbie, my waitress, was very pleasant to talk to. I went with her recommendation for the breakfast burritos and they were delicious! Much better than most other places I've been to. I would definitely... More

We really wanted to like BPC, it has a good reputation but it just wasn't there for our late lunch today. I might have even gone with a good rating but I've been using that lately for much better dining experiences. Lunch was not poor but it was just ok and that rating is not available. We stood at the... More

Great variety of home cooking, comfort food! Stopped in on a dreary, Saturday afternoon. Staff were attentive, portions were sufficient, and quality of food very good. Would definitely recommend and return again for another meal.

Thank Bob F
