Blue Plate Diner (Middletown, RI)

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 surprised with how empty it was.

Blute Plate Diner (Middletown) Atmosphere; A

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.

Blue Plate Diner (Middletown) Coffee: B

The coffee was usual diner coffee.  There wasn’t anything unique or exciting about it. It appears the Blue Plate Diner (Middletown) also has a full bar and has drinks like the espresso martini and ultimate bloody mary.

A Few Blue Plate Diner (Middletown) menu options that stuck out to me:

  • Mixed field greens
  • Fruit smoothie

When we arrived at the Blute Plate Diner (Middletown), 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 vinaigrette, the rest of my party had finished their meals. The small greek salad itself was boring and not something I would order again.  Was it edible? Yes.  Was it great? No.

Blue Plate Diner (Middletown) Service: C

Even though it wasn’t that busy at the Blue Plate Diner, the service was prolonged.  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.

Blue Plate Diner (Middletown) Cost: $

For my salad and coffee, the cost was $15, which was more expensive than it was worth.

Overall Thoughts/Summary of the Blue Plate Diner (Middletown):
