Blue Collar was Amazing at my Wedding!!! They worked with us to get the exact cocktail hour food that we wanted! My guests were raving about how delicious the cocktail hour was, and the buffet diner was just as spectacular! Their wait staff was so courteous and professional in communicating with myself, my bride, and our guests!
I would highly recommend them for Big weddings, backyard bbq....or just a
good lunch break when in Lacey!
Thank you Blue Collar!

I had a party of about 45 people this summer. Gregg and Karen did an amazing job!! Karen helped with the menu planning and it was perfect to the T. There was an abundance of delicious, tasty hors d'oeuvres and the buffet was a hit. Our guests were so impressed with the quality and also the different choices we served. I have to say the Pork w/stuffing was the biggest hit! We would recommend Blue Collar Catering to anyone in this area. I am telling you, the price and quality of food cannot be beat!

The food was incredible and the service was pure perfection! You really helped to make a very special day better. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Hi Karen & Staff -
I know I am a little late with this but let me tell you - We love you guys!  The presentation, the staff and the food is all 5 star.  It's spectacular - No exaggeration!  We cannot thank you enough for traveling all the way to Little Egg to make our day spectacular!  One of our guests said that the Chicken Murphy was SO good he could have drank the broth and licked the tray!  I have to agree with him!  You guys also did a magnificent job on my now husband's 40th birthday party.  The trays were so delicious and the food was splendid - keep up the good work!
