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

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.

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.

Stopped in here for the second time with my husband. Food is American fare with some Greek as well. I love the booths, tiled floor and feeling of what diners were in the 50's. My husband had fish and chips, which he said was very good. I had a burger and fries, good as well.

My wife, Daughter, and I love the Blue Plate. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are all excellent. My personal favorite is the garbage fries. My wife loves the turkey sandwich(Thanksgiving mmmm). My daughter gets a bacon omelette every time we get breakfast
