Breakfast
Blue's serves breakfast and lunch with the care and attention you'd expect from a fine dining restaurant, making it an excellent brunch choice throughout the week. Co-owner Chef Joe Muench has crafted a modern American menu that is often recognized as Milwaukee's best breakfast and best brunch, including egg basics, buttermilk pancakes, and restoring grain bowls. Always check out the daily specials, and our signature Browns: fresh hash browns cooked in butter and stuffed with premium ingredients like our slow-baked pulled ham. Top it off with a Monkey Bread (with Crunk Sauce), and a Bloody Mary (with a chaser)!

Blue's looks at Modern American Brunch through the eyes of Lady Liberty, blending Old World ingredients, the vision of American immigrant cooking and the creativity of fresh concepts. We source ingredients that are high quality, regionally supportive and locally sustainable. By supporting the needs of the community we strive to preserve the EGG: Everyone’s Good Grace

    We had a reservation and my 8-month pregnant friend didn’t have any place to sit while we waited. When we finally got to our table, the chairs were uncomfortable and the wait staff was not pleasant. The menu was very limited and no one asked about any food allergies. They gave us grapes while we waited and then our food came and that’s when we really felt uncomfortable. The waitress was trying to rush us through our meal and even gave us our check when first started eating. We left it there and continued to eat but she kept coming back to check it - not check on us. When I finally gave her the card, she came back with the check for me to sign and I signed it but put it between me and the wall so we could finish eating. The waitress went behind me, between the tables and reached around me to get the check. We would have gotten better service at McDonald’s.

    I have always heard good things about the Blue’s egg. The food was fantastic. The service not so much. We were greeted by 3 girls at the hostess station, and seated right on time for our reservation. The restaurant was not overly busy, open tables. Coffee was slow to be offered, and i only got a refill when i flagged someone down. No one came to check if we needed anything, and my coffee cup sat empty. The food tasted great, the portions were generous.

    I blame a few slips on the fact that it was Father's Day and the restaurant was packed. Service was quite good considering, but the eggs in the Eggs Benedict were overcooked and so not runny, and the sauce could have used more lemon and a smidge of tobasco. I must say they were way generous with their signature hash browns.

    Now I understand why Blue’s Egg is so consistently rated in the top restaurants in MKE. Get the Monkey Bread - it was a tasty treat - and anything with the pulled ham. Service was very good, especially on an incredibly busy Sunday morning. Reservations recommended!

    Service was slow. Server not attentive. She acted like a robot, not endearing and showed little care about us; just procedural. Dampened The Who experience as I took a friend out for breakfast. Though I had a reservation I still needed to wait 12 min. for a table. ElizabethBeaudette

    Out of our party of four, one of us had a very bad meal experience and that was me. I ordered the classic eggs Benedict and asked if I could get a side order of corned beef hash. I assume our server was new because she didn’t know and had to ask someone. She came back and told me that it was fine and if I wanted the corned beef hash instead of potatoes and I replied yes. When our meals arrived mine was not remotely what I ordered. There was so much stuff on there I could barely make it out. I believe I was told that it was the “Benedict special” but I don’t even remember seeing that on the menu; I’m addition, there were potatoes but no corned beef hash. So it was taken away, our server came back and apologized and implied that my new (correct) order would be expedited. But it certainly was not. The other three members of my party were completely finished with their meals when mine finally arrived. This is what I received: an order of corned beef hash that was CHARRED. I mean hunks of barely recognizable black bits of potato and meat. The two bottom slices of the English muffin were burned, the egg yolks were hard and there was barely a drizzle of hollandaise sauce atop each egg. When I dug below this mess for something edible I found a minuscule amount (about three shreds) of your famous pulled ham (which was the thing I was looking forward to most. To say this meal was abysmal is an understatement. I am beyond disappointed. I live three blocks from your establishment and have eaten there often since its opening. I’ve only ever had one other unfortunate meal experience prior to the one described above. I was also a little embarrassed because my party was also comprised of out of town guests whom had never been to Blue’s Egg before and commented that they wouldn’t want to dine with you again at future visits.

    Met a friend on Friday and the staff, food, and atmosphere could not have been nicer! Food here is always top notch. Service was that amazing combination of attentive and yet non-obtrusive (shout out to Evan!) So glad that they are taking reservations now. If you haven't been here you really need to get this restaurant on your list of "places to try next."

    My husband and I are from Oshkosh and have eaten here a few times. The pancakes are our favorite anywhere. But after thinking about it we spent $26 for 2 orders of pancakes and split 3 pieces of bacon and had water to drink. A little too pricey but food was very good. The room was a little too cold for a cool day. Waiter was nice and did a good job

    Great place for breakfast. They have lots of good choices. We had the stuffed hash browns which they're known for, and they were very good. The paprika sauce they put on them is delicious. They have homemade hot sauce which my bf liked. Our server was excellent. The decor is pretty much what you expect for a breakfast place. I'm very glad that they take reservations now, because we tried to go there previously and the wait was so long that we had to go elsewhere. Will definitely go back.
