Last month while in Newport, RI, we decided to go to the Blue Plate Diner. On the outside, it looked good. Plus it was close by the base. When we arrived on a Saturday for lunch, it wasn’t too busy. I was actually surprised with how empty it was.
The Blue Plate Diner looks like a diner. On the outside, it’s big, shiny, and metallic. It’s exactly what you picture in a diner. The inside is similar and very picture perfect: diner. There is a full-length bar, plenty of tables, and plenty of booths. I enjoyed the phrases and sayings painted on top such as “tho should not worship Golden Arches.
The coffee was usual diner coffee. There wasn’t anything unique or exciting about it.
When we arrived, I wasn’t starving, so I ordered the Greek Salad. I was disappointed. Even though I wasn’t hungry, the salad itself was small, and it came with an odd dressing. Was it ranch? Was it mayo?
Although by the time I was able to switch a vingerette, the rest of my party had finished their meals. The salad itself was boring and not something I would order again. Was it edible? Yes. Was it great? No.
Even though it wasn’t that busy, the service was extremely slow. We didn’t receive many refills, and by the time the waitress came back with a new dressing my family had finished their meal. I waited because I didn’t care to eat a dry salad.
For my salad and coffee, the cost was $15 which was more expensive than it was worth.
The Blue Plate Diner wasn’t the worst diner, I’ve been too but not the best either. It’s an ok stop.
