Going to the Blue Plate is, for my husband and I, like being at a friend's house. We've been customers for a number of years. The menu doesn't change often, but there's a lot to choose from and always specials. The service is great.

Our first visit to BLUE PLATE and we would definitely return. Server was professional and attentive, even though the dining room was almost full. The wine list had plenty of selections from which to choose. The menu had a nice selection of "small plates" and dinners. We enjoyed our entrees thoroughly. The entire dining experience was perfect.

My wife and I love to go here for our date nights. I LOVE siting right next to the window with the street view. The food is great and the portions are good too! Always have to bring some home with us. I highly recommend the Blue Plate to anyone looking for a great atmosphere and quality food.

My husband and I are "locals" (I was born and raised in the area) and we have dined at The Blue Plate many times, and we dine out A LOT! What we found last night, 2/17/2017, was a changed menu, which isn't a big deal for us, however their mainstay of meatloaf, although still on the menu, the recipe was... More

I have been a loyal fan of the Blue Plate Restaurant in Chatham for 25 years. I feel compelled to review to share "the love" with those considering a change of pace. Backdrop. Chatham NY is funky. Classic, gracious warm home town all wrapped into one. Farm land with abundance of apples, goat cheese and organic garlic farm surrounded by... More

Years ago, we had dined here a couple times - neither was worth mentioning. But when friends and I visited a new location in town for lunch and found that the same gentleman was the chef at the Blue Plate, Ed & I decided to celebrate my birthday there. Staff was pleasant and acceptably attentive. I finally decided on the... More

Charming, contemporary atmosphere in a period building. Service was a bit "relaxed" (they were very busy), but everything else was top notch! Diverse, well-priced menu and fresh, well-prepared dishes. Would go again!

What a disaster. Went for dinner before a local theatre show. The place was not overcrowded and we were seated for two. We waited for a server as we watched 4 other patron groups seated. As we continued to wait we saw these four other tables being served their cocktails and wine. Still nothing at our table. Finally a server... More

We arrived Wednesday night at 7:30 and the place was packed. There are two seating areas. The bar below, (lots of very loud music) and upstairs which is similar to a better restaurant minus table cloths. Lots of good choices on the menu with a semi-Italian bent. Steak was pretty good, shrimp was great. The reason we can't return is... More
