Blue Ribbon is a great atmosphere for families, from young to old. On any given night you'll have families with both pre-schoolers and Senior Citizens dining table-to-table!

We dined on a very busy Saturday morning. Our breakfast was served promptly, hot and very plentiful. The staff has always been very courteous on the 3 previous visits I have had there. The waitress brought us plenty of coffee and even though she was very, very busy still took a minute to be attentive to our needs. The restaurant is also very clean.

This was our first visit and we were very impressed with this restaurant. They have an extensive menu with reasonable prices - you WILL bring home a doggie bag. The waitstaff and busboys were working very diligently. We are looking forward to going back when we are visiting our daughter who attends college in Schenectady.

I often take my elderly Father in Law out for lunch on weekends, and the Blue Ribbon is often our destination for a number of reasons. They have a number of handicapped parking places (10!), which is vital for taking my Father in law out as he has difficulty walking. Three of these spaces are within 10 feet of the door. Even when the place is packed on a Saturday or Sunday morning, we have never waited more than 2-3 minutes for a table. The secret is that the Blue Ribbon gets your food out to you so quickly after ordering, that it is hard to believe. Basic egg breakfasts typically take less than 5 minutes to be served. The food tastes good, and portions are plentiful. The home fries are tasty and flavorful, but my one and only grip is their bacon. It is super duper thin. Like see through thin. I would pay more for thicker, juicier bacon. On the way out, we always get some sort of baked pastries to bring home.
