Blue Heron is a casual fine dining restaurant that caters to all walks of life. Whether you are up here for business, a laborer, a family, a couple of friends who want to have a drink, or a couple looking for a romantic dinner, you are all welcome to join us at the Blue Heron. We provide great service and delicious quality food for a reasonable price. From burgers and pizzas to steaks, seafood and pasta, we try to accommodate all tastes.
