Large windows look out onto the tree-covered patio of the next door Tallman Hotel. We enjoyed a delicious dinner, friendly server, and great blues from the band playing next door.

Amazing cocktails, crab cakes, soup, & dessert. Service left a bit to be desired. Staff put off vibe of being burdened by having to serve.

The Blue Wing was opened in 2005 on the site of a well known local saloon of that name that operated from the 1880s until the 1920s. It is separated by a relaxing garden from the fully restored Tallman Hotel. A full bar and seating inside is complimented by seating in the garden and on a heated veranda. Quality food and drink is served in a relaxing atmosphere at lunch and dinner seven days a week. Live music is performed at Sunday Brunch, Sunday Supper, Monday Night Blues and for the special $20 Tuesdays.
