We had a local friend recommend the Blue Lion and we’re glad we went. Both my wife and I had the lamb and it was terrific. The service was also excellent. The only issue is that the tables are very close.

Loved the food. Stuffed mushrooms and French onion soup were great. The steak was good the potatoes not so much. Loved the atmosphere. Our server Celia left us feeling like an inconvenience. That’s never nice. I hope she reads this review and ups her game....More

Looking for solid continental cuisine with a local flair? You can’t go wrong with the Blue Lion. The restaurant is in town but off the main buzz and by a relatively quiet street. It’s in an old house converted into restaurant for both indoor and...More

Visited here based on Trip Advisor ratings and recommendation from hotel. Was not disappointed. My wife had a trout special and I had the Bison Ravioli. Both were excellent. Service was prompt and checked on often. Will go back if in town again.

They did have some vegan options on their menu! They do have a website, with the most current menu on it! I'd check there for what they serve! Jackson is very, vegan friendly at most venues!

Description
The Blue Lion was built as a residential home in the late 1930's, in 1974 it became The Tourist Trap restaurant and then in 1976 The Blue Lion. I bought it in 1978 after graduating college. The Blue Lion has evolved a lot since the early days. We continue to add and change dishes semi-annually. The lamb, elk and fresh fish are our biggest sellers. There was a restaurant in southern California where I grew up that served mud pie and my mother made a home made hot fudge sauce which we incorporated into our own version of mud pie, a local favorite. The restaurant has been enlarged several times, the upstairs dining, the kitchen, the waiting area and the outdoor deck. In the winter The Blue Lion can accommodate 60 diners at one time. In the summer we open the deck enabling us to accommodate 80 diners. We are open nightly at 5:30 and usually feature an acoustical guitarist as entertainment. Let Chef Tony Duren, Sous Chef Zach Swim and the rest of our team treat a wonderful Night.
