    Chef Jim has a wonderful, creative menu. The homemade pasta was fabulous! It's BYOB, but you can buy their featured ,local wine from the Wagonhouse Winery. Have eaten there many times for breakfast and lunch, but dinner is very special and atmosphere more upscale than during the day. The food at all meals is fabulous!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 2/14/2012
    Made a reservation yet when I entered and gave my name, the young lady looked at me as though she had no idea what that meant. Then, when there were many booths open, we were seated in the middle of the room at a round table. The hostess was clueless with other things as well. The wait staff was good. The appetizer and salad was mediocre. The entree, salmon, was wonderful as was the beef my husband ordered. The desserts - disaster - $50 for essentially a 6 oz piece of salmon not worth it. Wanted to try it; will not be going back.

    We went to Blueplate for Valentine's Day dinner because we had heard so many good things about it. We were very disappointed. While the first and second courses were passable, the chicken entre was bland and the desserts were inedible. Additionally, the service was spotty. We do not plan to return and would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 10/15/2011
    food was excellant. Salmon was brown sugar & chilli crusted,and cooked to perfection. Pork tenderloin was in a tasty garlic sauce and could be cut with a butter knive. This was served with apple sage stuffing to die for. Almost forgot - Tasty sweet potato soup, and I don't even like sweet potatos,and misses enjoyed the apple, walnut, and bleu cheese salad. Definitely will return with guests.

    This special peach dinner at blueplate was SUPERB!!! Every course contained delicious peaches, prepared in a way that the peaches were the highlight of the plate. Even the salmon took a backseat to the sweetness of the peach! The dessert was "to die" for!

    This place is a hidden gem..I used to have an occasional breakfast in there but have recently been to the last three or four "Farm To Table" dinners....the portions are adequate, presentation is inviting and, most important, the flavor of the food has center stage.

    Amazing! I went for the special Farm Fresh Week. Four courses for $35 and every course was incredible - what a steal. Join the restaurant's email list to be notified about their special weeks. I'm not going to miss any! Zucchini "meatballs" were beyond delicious and the peach soup was so refreshing during a hot week. The grilled pork chop with blueberry bbq sauce was out of this world.

    The food was excellent. Interesting selections, well prepared. I enjoyed a flank steak served with risotto, aspargus & roasted tomatoes. An onion tart appetizer was tasty (and a good size portion). I would suggest that the dining room could use a bit of a makeover. There are signs of wear and some very dated (not vintage or quaint). Service was friendly and attentive.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2004
    Dined on 3/26/2011
    Food was innovative and comparable to any fine dining establishment. Service excellent. The dining room unfortunately is the same for dinner as it is for breakfast which is local diner decor. Simple upgrades for dinner such as white tableclothes would enhance the diner decor. The interior needs a makeover to take this restaurant to a higher level. The booth we sat in had old cracked vinyl on the bench. Only complaint about the food was the poached Salmon was dry with little flavor. With no decent restaurants in Mullica Hill, Blue plate should be full every night.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2004
    Dined on 2/14/2011
    The special Valentine's Day menu was simply outstanding. The food was particularly beyond their usual incredible rating. The Potato Leeks Soup was a great start. The Oyster Martini Shot was the freshest I've ever tasted, the way Oysters are supposed to be served. The Pasta Bologna took me straight to Italy and their fresh homemade pasta. The Cavatelli was done just right and the sauce was delicious and beautifully crafted. The start of the night was the Filet of Beef, so tender and flavorful it brought Filet to a whole new level of tenderness and care for its preparation. The Chocolate Marjolie was a very nice complement to an already heavenly experience. It was nicely done and just the enough level of sweet to it.

    The place looks like a diner/cafe with fine food aspirations. The dinning area was nicely appointed although a little tight on space. The food was very good and attractively plated. The service was attentive although a little awkward because of the space limitations. A surprising gem in this part of South Jersey. I recommend it.

My husband had the Veal Osso Bucco and he said it was the best ever and I had the poached salmon which was delicious. We had one of each of the desserts which were absolutely sinful and I finished them both.

    I have been here for breakfast many times. Love it and look forward to my morning meals here. As for dinner that is a different story. We decided to give it a try and bring another couple along. We were first at a table for 8 and we were only 4. It took 15 min to have someone approach us. No appetizers, just salads. And the service was just ok. Our dinners were again, just ok. I decided to order a dessert since I was still hungry and it was a mess in a martini glass. I will not go here again based on my experience.
