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.

Twelve of our Optimist club got together for breakfast at The Blue Plate Café before we began delivering our annual Thanksgiving food boxes to needy Huntsville families. The restaurant was busy, however we had a reservation and were seated quickly. Our server, Tia arrived quickly and took our orders and provided fresh coffee. The breakfast menu was varied with something... More

Had breakfast with a co-worker and really liked it. Waitstaff was excellent- really friendly and made you feel at home. Food was really good, fresh, hot and quick. Cheese grits were great! Will try dinner next time!

Friday nights we get together with our friends for dinner. Talked them into Blue Plate. No hostess when we arrived, seated several minutes later. Waitress finally came to get drink order but we all had plenty of time to decide so we were ready to order. One had the meatloaf, was not impressed. One had chicken n dumplings stated they... More

We both had the blue plate specials. Pot Roast and chicken & stuffing. Both great. Service was friendly and welcoming. I love the South.

If you want a quick home-style meal at a great price, the Blue Plate Cafe is hard to beat. They offer daily specials including pork chops, meatloaf, catfish, chicken, etc. They have a great selection of vegetables to round out the meal.

I am beginning to believe that I just do not understand the sophisticated palate of the folks in the great state of Alabama. This is another local restaurant with great reviews that I found to be just meh. The food was not bad, but it certainly was not as good as many of the reviews raved. The atmosphere is very... More

Been going here for 5 years. Great service, fresh ground coffee, pancakes, french-toast, grits, hash-browns and omelets. The only con at this place is that there is not enough parking so go to the travel agent next door and park. Great food at breakfast.

Thank HGAL2015
