You cannot go wrong with a night at The Blue Lantern. Whether its just for drinks and appetizers or a sit down meal, everything is wonderful. Their martini selection is amazing and all of their wait staff are friendly and attentive. Their menu has something for everyone. Love their banana peppers, meatloaf and pasta de loco. Great experience every time I've been there!

My husband and I were searching for someplace to go to sit out on a patio and we found just the right spot. We were seated immediately by the very friendly staff. Our server was excellent. Her reaction to everything was 'no problem.' We enjoyed our meals very much. Appetizers here run between $6-$12, Entrees are from $15-$30 and only a few at the lower end. Drinks were reasonable. Great for a couples dinner with an adult atomosphere. A must try.

Waitstaff -- fantastic. They were attentive to our requests and needs. Service was top-notch and pleasantly surprising for a smaller, out-of-the-way restaurant.

Menu -- Well-prepared and interesting. Bread and butter brought to the table after placing our drink orders. The drink menu has fun selections and drinks are reasonably priced. Salads were big and delicious--the beet salad was very good. However, the menu is limited for vegetarians and vegans. Our entrees were well-prepared and plated. Portions were huge! Entrees range from $15-$30. They offer specials throughout the week. Desserts were yummy.

The restaurant is charming and cozy. Although the tables are in close proximity to each other, there is a feeling of intimacy within the dining room. We didn't hear anyone else's conversations at the tables next to us, which was refreshing. Dress attire varied wildly--from jeans and sweatshirts to dress casual.

Parking is readily available and the restaurant is handicapped-accessible. The ladies room was well-kept and exceptionally clean.

We appreciate your kind words on many aspects for our restaurant and bar. We change our menu seasonally and with our fall menu, have added gluten free and vegetarian dishes. In addition, our entrees are prepared to order and for the most part we have a large variety of ingredients in-house. We are able to prepare special items for those that are vegan to order. Thanks for your note and look forward to your next visit.

We went out to the Blue Lantern for my mother-in-law's birthday dinner. The food was good, but we felt that the service was rushed. On the menu, we read about a birthday deal where you'd get twenty percent off during the week of your birthday. We asked our waitress about this because my mother-in-law's birthday was 4 days away. Because this was Saturday night and her birthday was the next calendar week, they would not honor this. Give me a break! Lost customers with a last bad impression over $3. Do yourself a favor and just skip this one.

Thanks for dining with us on a busy Saturday night. So sorry you felt rushed, it is not our policy to rush any of our guests... Given we cook to order, I am sure you can imagine we need to be sure and balance that with the number of people we are trying to cook for in a small restaurant. Most often our guests seem to fill our tables all at the same time...especially on the weekends. Catch 22. Our birthday treat is a nice treat and often used. We offer so many different discounts throughout the week, we do need to put some parameters around each of the ones we offer. Tom and Donna
