Rounding out the menu is an exceptional selection of craft beers, and fine wines. Save room for dessert, our Heath Bar and Butterscotch bread pudding is legendary.

It's no wonder they've been around since Jan. 2011. Will not be a stranger as long. KEEP UP THE GREAT EATS+++! Thanks!

    I decided to celebrate my birthday here last night because I wanted to be at ease and enjoy some good ol' comfort food and they did not disappoint. The Ragout sandwich, conch fritters, latke, and fried gouda were absolute perfection. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect birthday meal.

    I have heard of this restaurant on a couple of occasions and that breakfast/ brunch was good. I was actually very disappointed with the service, ambience and the food. We were there when it opened and they had already run out of sausage, so server said it would be all bacon. Server was no apologetic at all. Service was aloof and not very good. Definitely not a place I need to return.

    Split the Philly Cheese Steak with my wife as it was just a late lunch. Delicious but found it a bit salty as my wife is on a low salt diet, although it was too salty for me also. Not entirely their fault. I neglected to mention that when ordering it. The fries were delicious. Great beer and wine recommendations. We arrived at 3:15 PM not realizing that they closed after lunch at 3:30 before reopening for dinner at 5. They treated us like dining guests in any case and never made us feel rushed. Have dined there many times and have never been disappointed. Great food and hospitality.

    The food at Blue Collar is exceptional! Don't let the name fool you, the quality of the food is very upscale. Hospitable hosts, great service, and delicious comfort food dishes. I started with the Chanukah Latkes which was accompanied by homemade chunky applesauce. One of us ordered the spicy oxtail which can be altered to your spiciness level. The meat was fresh, well seasoned, soft, and tender. It was served with fresh creamy Yukon potatoes. I am looking foward to my next visit. What a wonderful experience! Highly recommended!!!

    Food is good but the establishment may be trying too hard to leave an impression that they “over-serve” certain elements. for instance, I ordered a side salad at lunch and it was a bit too overwhelming with too much cheese added on top. It’s almost like the kitchen was looking to make the cheese a kind of “decoration” but all it did was cause my dish to become overwhelmed and too cheesy, and thus underwhelming. It’s best to ask for certain ingredients to be served on the side when dining here

    If I’m being honest, the eggplant parmigiana was mediocre. Angel hair is simply a bad choice since it can’t stand up to anything more than the lightest sauces. The grated cheese was hard and not given a chance to melt. The conch fritters were terrific, and everything else I’ve ever ordered here was good. Odd note: place was empty, and only 3 more tables joined while we were here. That was odd because on Open table I couldn’t get the time slot I wanted which I figured was because it was full. Mystery?

    Blue Collar was a great casual spot for dinner with delicious food. We had the Conch Fritters to start and then had the Spicy Oxtail and the Griot for dinner. Both were delicious. The Oxtail could be ordered to your level of spicy. I went with Medium (two Scotch Bonnet pepper) and for my spice level it was delicious. The oxtail fell off the bone, the Ju was great to soak up with the bread and it was just enough heat for me. The Griot was also nice and crispy but still moist and the gravy was done very well. Would definitely recommend for a casual dining experience with great food and friendly staff.

    Wow, what a surprise! I'd heard for years about Blue Collar, and finally my wife and I were able to make it there. We went for lunch and took our 2-year old (which proved to be problematic). I wouldn't recommend taking young children. With that said, we will definitely return. We took advantage of their Miami Spice Lunch Menu which included an appetizer, an entree, dessert, and a drink. We had the cornbread and shrimp & grits for our appetizers. The corn bread was phenomenal but the herbed butter was next level! The shrimp and grits were perfectly done: fluffy and rich. Our mains were the crispy snapper and the griot. The snapper and asaparagus were perfectly cooked; the french fries were a little soggy for our 2-year old (she's a connoisseur). The griot was a) the first time I'd ever eaten any, and b) solid. Essentially carnitas but more moist, they were served with a perfectly spicy gravy which we put on everything (including the crispy snapper). I also had the Italian artichokes and fried rice. The fried rice, while heavily on the English peas, was perfectly cooked. The artichokes were grilled to perfection; however, there was way too much aioli drizzled on it. The desserts were hit and miss. We wanted the Key Lime Pie but they were out and actually arrived after we'd received our orders. I went with the chocolate cake; without mincing words, this should be eliminated from the menu. I've had better Betty Crocker versions or even Publix. This was not up to par for the restaurant. The bread pudding with spicy cream was awesome and made up for the failure of the chocolate cake. It was scrumptious. All in all, I'd say this place is a neighborhood gem and very special. Go with some expectations and most will be met. Quality eats.

    This maybe considered a dive because it's a small place within a motel but the food is fine dining. Straight up delicious.
