For years, one of the best restaurants in town

My wife and I have had dinner here too many times to count over the years, and it's always excellent. We also go with the extended family for special occasions because of the comfortable casual atmosphere.

The Lamb was as good or better than I've had anywhere. My wife had the Halibut and expressed the same about her choice. Service was excellent.

My hubby and I had dinner here and it was wonderful. The French onion soup was rich and full of onions. I had the smaller grilled salmon and it was great served with rice that was very tasty plus grilled asparagus that was perfect. My hubby had the lamb and he loved it, cooked perfectly and great flavor. Known for... More

Always top shelf! while famous for the rack of lamb the elk medallions should not be missed either. I have eaten there many, many times with family celebrations and for taking out my best clients. I always enjoy it. If you go early ask for the 20% discount.

Wonderful food, wonderful service!!! This restaurant is a fine dining restaurant with a local feel. Our waiter was wonderful!!This restaurant is known for it's lamb so we ordered the Lamb chops which were fabulous. I'd recommend the buffalo ravioli. the capri salad and the lamb chops. Great wine selection and live entertainment!! We'd make a special trip to return to... More

Wonderful gem in downtown Jackson! My husband and I made a reservation here for our anniversary dinner and what a find! Our waitress, Joelle, gave us first class service and let us know the history of the restaurant including the chef who has been there for many years and has the meals down to a science. My husband had the... More

We had a table outside on a lovely evening. Outdoor heaters took the chill off. The food was fantastic - especially the rack of lamb. Others have commented on it - they're right. This was not a quick paced meal - each course given it's time. We particularly enjoyed Marco, the guitarist, who quietly played beautiful renditions of more songs... More

We got to the Blue Lion around 8pm, after a 13 hour travel day. We had looked at the menu prior to arriving so we had a pretty good idea on what we were going to order. We asked to sit outside since it was nice weather. The outside sitting area was still enclosed to keep out the cold wind.... More

The Blue Lion is my favorite restaurant in Jackson. It has been a Jackson jewel since before I moved here in 1978. The food is delicious! The service is perfection. I am never disappointed. I save the Blue Lion for special occasions and have many wonderful memories of the beautiful meals and the wonderful people I was with. Everyone adores... More
