Heard so much about this restaurant. We were disappointed. Had the famous rack of lamb. I’ve had better. Wine and drinks are also overpriced.

Bread, cocktails, salads, entrees, desserts, and service this restaurant scores a 10/10 in our book on all fronts. We arrived at 7 without a reservation, but thanks to it being "off season" in May, were seated immediately at a semi-private table on the second floor...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!

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. Let Chef Tony Duren, Sous Chef Zach Swim and the rest of our team treat a wonderful Night.
