My family decided to eat here in July 2014. We sat upstairs and enjoyed the live guitar music. I had the Ono fish wish was delightful. My father got the Elk and Trout combo and he was not disappointed. Our server, Spencer, was very personable and helpful. The clam chowder was a wonderful starter. My family enjoyed the Blue Lion...

We had heard about the Rack of Lamb in this restaurant and despite the high expectations we were not disappointed. It was one of the best I have ever had. We were 3 of us and we ordered 2 Lamb and 1 Halibut. Lamb was excellent...Halibut was good. Definitely recommend this place to any one visiting this area.

Wow! This place had a wonderful “feel” the moment we sat down on the outside deck. There were cloth napkins instead of the usual paper wrapped around the utensils! There was a guitarist playing very softly, mostly great “country” music. Each table had a big umbrella and everyone was quite warm and friendly. My husband and I split the special,... More

My 86 year old father and I recently visited Jackson Hole. I had read the reviews from Tripadvisor and made reservations at the Blue Lion. Superb food! We ordered the elk and wasabi seaweed appetizer and it was divine. The wasabi was just enough to enhance the flavor of the elk. We split a rack of lamb and it was... More

Went here for our only meal in Jackson Hole. Very good meal, quite pricy but worth it. Started with elk with wasabi seaweed salad, fabulous! My husband had the lamb and I had the tenderloin with blue cheese. The lamb was a little undercooked but mine was very very good. The beef done perfectly. Tables are a little to close... More

Great food, service and ambiance while negotiating my large party of 8. What a great experience and I will go back. The lamb, elk and prawns were delightful. Only the trout was a bit disappointing in size and quality. The service was excellent, and the wine list reasonable and solid. It is a wonderful atmosphere, and a really well managed... More

We have been coming to Jackson for over 25 years and have eaten at most of the well recommended restaurants here, but just like the locals we always come back to the Blue Lion first and are never ever disappointed. The meat is local,the selection and variety superb, the wine sublime, and the service always impeccable.

Husband & I both ordered seafood and it was wonderful! Service was attentive and friendly and the acoustic guitar in the background was lovely. Would definitely return!

My wife and I had a great dinner at the Blue Lion. It's just off the main drag, but worth looking for. I had the mixed grill (Trout and Elk) and it was excellent. My wife had the fish special (halibut) and it was excellent as well. Small in size, so definitely call for a reservation.
