Wonderful experience! However; it did not open until 5:30 promptly. Reservations a must. We were seated outside. Lovely small atmosphere.

We went our first night and last night in town, making early reservations both nights. Enjoyed the bison, trout, halibut and chicken between the three of us in our party. Friendly service, relaxing acoustic guitar in the outdoor seating area.

VERY bad experience. My wife and I did not have a reservation, so we were told we could eat there, but could only have one hour and fifteen minutes. Sure, that works. Less than forty minutes later “four” different employers attempted to take my wife’s...More

Very relaxing atmosphere with both indoor and outdoor patio seating. Live music adds to the experience. Wait staff were very helpful and courteous. Interesting menu options. My wife felt it was her best meal during our vacation in Jackson. Highly recommended.

I believe they served the best rack of lamb I have ever had. Plus the service and music were very good. Will not miss this the next time we are in Jackson.

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.
