Over the weekend, I took my friend to Blue Collar for the first time. They were out of Sauvignon Blanc and offered no alternatives, there must have been a shift change so we had experiences with two different servers. I had previously tried the braised brisket which was amazing, this time I chose the baby back ribs and honestly they were the worst ribs I have tried. The meat wasn’t tender it felt chewy and the sauce was sooooo gross. Chose bbq sauce on the side, they slap it on without any hesitation and it was just so dense and not tasty. The herb butter on the corn was underwhelming, and truly not even a side. My friend liked her dish which was the wild shrimp w grits but stated the grits were runny. We wanted to try a dessert but they were out of key lime which the server should’ve stated when asking us if we wanted dessert. So yeah, I don’t think I will try this place again and that sad bc I really wanted to like it.

Excellent and delicious conch fritters. The chicken curry made me feel all warm inside. I felt like I was eating dinner in someone’s kitchen. Amazing!

This is a great place for classic dishes! The food is so good and tasty! Very low key atmosphere and very homey dishes (bread pudding!). Desserts are amazing!

My husband and I wanted to go on a dinner date on New Years Eve, I was in the mood for steak so I began looking for steak houses. Blue collar came through as a “suggestion”, so I decided to take a look at the menu. As I browsed I noticed items such as conch fritters and griot on the menu, as a woman of Bahamian descent and my husband being of Haitian descent we both know that food items such as conch fritters and griot can’t be left to just anybody to cook. We decided that we were either gonna get a good laugh or be mildly surprised that they had a great attempt at these dishes. When we got there, only one couple was sitting outside so we were able to grab an outside table. Our waiter was attentive but not pushy, we ordered the conch fritters appetizers and water they only had beer and wine for alcoholic beverages, which is fine with me. The fritters came out and we tasted them, OMG! Top tier conch fritters! They were crispy, fresh and filled with conch, I couldn’t believe it! We ended up ordering some more. My husband ordered the Griot dinner, while I ordered the Filet Mignon with mashed potatoes and asparagus. Here was the moment of truth... I watched as my husband took a bite of griot and closed his eyes. He didn’t say a word, he just pushed the plate towards me... I couldn’t believe it! The griot was seasoned to perfection and cooked to perfection. The filet mignon? Perfect, tender and bursting with flavor. For dessert we had the bread pudding with spicy whipped cream, don’t leave blue collar without trying it! Our bill came came out to only $73.00! I was born and raised in Miami and I had never heard of this place but I will be making Blue Collar our family dining spot. Do yourself a favor and check this place out!

What more can one say about a restaurant where the food is great, same with service and at very fair prices? This restaurant is one of, if not my favorite places to go when I want a great meal (almost home-made) at a fair price and don't feel like cooking. i highly recomend BLUE COLLAR 100%.

Trying to eat out in the time of COVID has been challenging but when we do, we make an effort to eat in local restaurants. I wanted to commend the server-"guy doing everything" this past Saturday. I do not remember his name but he took orders, cleared tables, served everyone's food, even outside, dealt with the UBER Eats guy, hosted incoming guests, ...all with faultless ease. Big round of applause for that guy.

The food was just as good as it's always been before COVID. Tender and delicious brisket, latkes, sauted artichokes, and a Blue Collar burger, ..Oh and chocolate cake. Everything, excellent.

Food and service spectacular as usual. Tried their Shrimp & Grits for the first time and it was as good as everything else I’ve tried on the menu. Well sanitized and social distance seating indoors is well executed. Cheers

Had a nice time at this unassuming yet impressive restaurant. Rain delayed our reservation a bit, so the manager comped us an appetizer which was very gracious. Food was great and portions were pretty generous. Would highly recommend the shrimp and grits and the cheeseburger was delicious as well.

The decor and overall atmosphere of this place were unique and gave off a relaxing vibe. Our waiter was attentive and helpful. The overall experience left us satisfied and wanting to come back for more. Looking forward to my next trip here to try some different items from the menu.

We went to this restaurant because we saw it on Check Please. The TV program that reviews local restaurants. But the restaurant was not as great as that program had led us to believe. There’s nothing wrong with it but there’s nothing fabulous about it either. It’s obviously very popular with the locals as there were many take out orders being prepared. Perhaps that’s why our order took sa little longer than we thought it should.

We ordered the cheeseburger, ragout, steak, and the vegetable entree. You can choose the vegetables you want from a great selection. We tried to order a Malbec but they were out of stock so we instead ordered an Italian red wine which I was unable to drink. Not to my taste at all.

If we lived closer we would probably try the restaurant again. But we don’t / we traveled there especially to try this restaurant following the tv program. It’s a shame that it didn’t live up to its tv reputation.

The food was merely mediocre, We started with the Mac and cheese and it was dry. The noodles really needed some sauce, My dinner was the beef brisket on a bun but was not very full of meat or flavor. The rest was ok but nothing I would write home about.

A favorite restaurant for years. So happy they're doing well on the pandemic. Following all protocols, getting lots of takeout orders, but we ate in, food great as always, and their regular menu, too. Had to get the Heath Bar bread pudding...the best. Support this restaurant!!!

After hearing so much about Blue Collar, I was actually disappointed when I went for dinner.

I'm just assuming was a bad night and I'll probably give it another try.

I love this spot, the no changing menu and the consistency in their kitchen. We chose Miami Spice menu, it was a good choice. Sadly some items were not available and the chicken of the milanese was as not as tender as always. Overall years keep passing and we still consider BC one of our favorites places to eat in all Miami.
