We stopped by for lunch after birdwatching at a near by park. My teenage son enjoy the building and it's decors while husband loved the beer selection. All of our entrees were wonderful, as well as the service. We will come back again!!

The food here is excellent and a fun place to bring friends for a night out. Each week night there are special and the patio in the summer is a must.

I'd give it a five star, except that the group reservations were misplaced. After that was resolved, we had a very nice dinner. Wanting to eat light, I ordered a Ceasar salad with shrimp and still had some to take home. Sharon had the Quesadilla, also very good. Finally, a restaurant where you can converse with others at normal voice... More

I don't think I've ever been treated so rudely by a restaurant as I just was here. We arrived just minutes ago at 3:45 based on a recommendation from the tour guide at Cornwall Furnace. A handwritten sign stating that your were closing at 4 and last call for food was at 4:30. Not really understanding we stepped in to... More

We heard about the Blue Bird on Lebanon's FM station and decided to give it a try. We didn't make reservations and were fortunate to be seated in about 10 minutes. The inn / restaurant has been in business since 1855 (not by the same person). Our server was Cindy and she was a gem to deal with. We ate... More
