Carlos invited us for a private acoustic blues sessions, amazing. His guitar playing and his good company is all you need for a great night. The food and drinks were very good as well! See you soon again my friend!

By far the best food we ate anywhere, and that is not saying the other food we had was bad! It's just that Blind Lemon's rocked. Lemon Chicken and Burritos are must haves. The beer is ice cold and the restaurant itself is very interesting...More

If we were reviewing the restaurant itself, it'd get 3 stars. We didn't love the food, and as has been said, the service is slow. But Friday nights are Blues Night, and that's why you go to Blind Lemon's. Carlos is a great musician and...More

The food is good--especially the Lemon Chicken--at this pretty restaurant, but be sure to stop in when Carlos Funk can treat you to some Blues. He is wonderful!

Constructed in the colonial architectural style with parabolic arches and gardens, Blind Lemon’s reflects the tradition of Guatemala. And set in San Marcos La Laguna, a small Mayan village on Lake Atitlan, surrounded by towering volcanoes, Blind Lemon’s holds out an invitation to travelers who want good food served in a pleasing ambiance.Blind Lemon’s was built by a blues guitarist musician and cabinetmaker who wanted to create a music venue to attract the best in live entertainment, and give value and satisfaction to his customers. The restaurant features weekly Blues Nights, as well as big screen showings of recent Hollywood, documentary, art, and foreign films. We have had theatre presentations and circus performances here as well as a host of wonderful musicians who have played here. We also have a bar and billiards for those so inclined. Blind Lemons also features an wireless internet cafe.The building is large enough to host conferences and workshops and with advanced notice we can serve food for large groups.
