Had Elk steak with a sauce made from local berries. Good service. Close to the White Buffalo Hotel. We will stop again on our next visit.

If you like Rack of Lamb, this is by far the best we have ever had and that’s really saying something. Cozy restaurant with great outdoor seating. Excellent, friendly service. One of our favorites.

If you are a lamb lover, you must order the rack of lamb. It was the most tender, well prepared rack of lamb we’ve ever had. The mint and jalapeño dipping sauce was amazing. My husband had the lamb and I had beef tenderloin. The...More

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.
