Loved Blue Collar for years... BUT this visit was a repeat of the prior visit where ALL the food was spicy (too spicy). I understand if a dish may be prepared with a little kick but even dishes that should not have a kick was spicy. We told the waiter and he was apologetic and even agreed that some dishes we had should not be spicy

A great place with unique character. Very much an "upscale" diner with "diner" service! Meaning the food was fantastic comfort food, served with a side of bristly service. The best key lime pie I have had in 24 years of living in SoFL. I'm looking forward to our next trip to the Blue Collar.

We had a reservation for my wife's birthday but we were running late. Adam saved us a table and treated us very well. The Brisket Eggs Benedict was great and the French Toast was awesome. Adam made us feel like family and we will definitely recommend this place to our friends and visit again next time we are in Miami.

Blue Collar is consistently good food. No frills atmosphere with decent service and food that is hot, tasty, and well-seasoned. Prices are very reasonable. Definitely one of my favorite places to eat in Miami. Reservations are recommended as the place is pretty small with limited tables. You won't be disappointed!

This can best be described as comfort food, very well-prepared. The service was excellent. Hard to believe that a place as small as this can put out the variety of food offered on the menu. There is something for everyone. We particularly liked the variety of sides available and that you could select the sides you wanted with each entree.

First and foremost the food here is amazing. Got the duck confit quesadillas, the channukah latkes, the fried gouda cheese and the daily special which was spare ribs. The spare ribs came with a side of choice and we got the sweet potatoes with jalapeno butter. The duck confit quesadillas were crisp on the outside and juicy on the inside. The raspberry jelly that comes with it is the perfect compliment to the richness of the duck. The latkes were super crisp and perfectly salted. The fried gouda cheese had smoked qouda which added an extra layer of depth to the flavor and the sauce they came with was perfect for the dish. The ribs basically fell off the bone they were so tender. The sweet potato was the best I've ever had. Not sure how they cooked it but it had a nice char to the edge which added a great dichotomy of textures along with the tenderness of the inside. The jalapeno butter on top was amazing. Never had jalapeno butter before but if I ever see it again I'll be sure to get it. The service was top notch here as well. Some of the best I've had. The place is super clean but the dining room doesn't fit many so make sure to get reservations to play it safe. Place itself is in an old hotel that is being renovated (not open). The neighborhood is a bit sketchy but don't let that deter you. Like the signs say out in the parking lot, bring your valuables with you into the restaurant and they can store them for you.

A unique dining experience. The ambience is not wonderful but the food and service sure make up for it. Delicious trout and very good cheese and grits. The beets and goat's cheese were a nice combo. My husband loved his ribs and my friend loved her gnocchi. We had an adorable waiter who was friendly and very attentive.

My wife and I are regulars at the Blue Collar, which consistently delivers high quality food at affordable prices. Nothing fancy here but delicious basic well prepared dishes. I usually order one of the dailies and never have been disappointed. My wife always orders fresh vegetables from the veg chalkboard. The servers are attentive and provide excellent service.

The food was just AMAZING. I had the shrimp & grits which I appreciated was not too big of a plate, just the right size. I do wish they had a larger outdoor dining area that was not on the street.

Took a friend to Blue Collar for her birthday. She loved it! We've been there a few times before and have always had a great time. The food is always fresh and hot when it arrives at the table, with an amazing variety, particularly of vegetables. (The veggie plate - 4 choices - is always a hit.) If we lived closer, we'd be there even more often. The ambience is great - a small restaurant attached to a motel! Saving the best for last, the butterscotch and Heath bar bread pudding is insanely good. Good prices and well worth the trip.

Home cooking - felt like I was in Adam's kitchen - all good. The apps and entrees were generous portions and delicious. A little over seasoned for me, but everyone else was okay with it. Would definitely go back.

General manager, creative kitchen professionals, servers and all staff Staff were excellent. Curried cauliflower was so delicious. Cracked conch was full of nicely chopped conch. Ox tail was so cooked right and delicious. Mashed potatoes...you will have no better anywhere. My hanger steak was not tough, cooked medium rare perfectly, but was definitely soo salty, as were the sautéed mushrooms. However, you’ve never had a better key lime pie anywhere. This place deserves accolades for overall success in their desire to provide you with a great dining experience at an affordable price. Maybe I should not have share this review with everyone as it will probably make it harder for me to get a reservation in the future. In any case, they deserve your patronage.

Had the B/S Chicken (Grilled) It was delicious, although I chose the sweet potato wedges amd they were a bit too spicy for my taste. But regardless of that, it was one of the best meals I've ever had!
