The Blue Heron is a nice Tavern, with a small restaurant. They have pretty good vegetarian burgers and make good Long Island Ice tea, other then that their a good place to kick back listen to live local artists perform concerts while you relax drink and eat at the Blue.

Bar was full with live music patrons so we went into the dining room which was much quieter. We ordered the special which was delivered quickly and tasted great. there was a cowboy in spurs sitting at the next table...very colorful place. Love it!

Had dinner here on Saturday night and we were extremely happy with the food. One person had the steak dinner ($22) who said it was cooked perfectly, one had the baby back pork ribs ($18) and it was outrageously delicious and tender, and my friend and I split the seafood platter (not deep fried) but cooked to perfection - salmon,...

Waitress had an entertaining dry/disinterested style. Good portions, the Ahi salad was superb. Ribs looked great & fish and chips fresh

Stopped in for a hamburger, but when the super friendly waitress told us the night's special was prime rib and huge we decided to split this instead. It was a small roast and perfectly cooked to medium. The meal included a wonderful Caesar salad, loaded potato, and grilled veggies. More than enough for two, and as good as any steak... More

I believe each of us should be opinionated, make our own minds up about everything and create our own personal reality. From a personal view The Heron is almost a second home to me. It's neighborly, unpretentious and nurturing. Of course living 5 minutes away enhances the experience but I would certainly drive further to get there. It's a throwback... More

Had dinner twice in the Tavern section of the establishment. It's quite small & gets very crowded at night with the locals crowding in. Often there's a band playing loudly in the corner. Food was good both times. For families & larger groups there's a dining room.

The family stopped here for a casual lunch. Most had sandwiches which ere good and very generous. Also recommend the fish and chips. The batter was a little heavy but the fish was very fresh and tasty

The Blue Heron Restaurant is situated in the little town in Duncan Mills. On our way to the coast my husband have enjoyed the food. It can get busy on the weekends and they have limited dining tables so if you can enjoy a early dinner before the rush. The food is fresh and lovely. We enjoy the salmon for... More
