If we were reviewing the restaurant itself, it'd get 3 stars. We didn't love the food, and as has been said, the service is slow. But Friday nights are Blues Night, and that's why you go to Blind Lemon's. Carlos is a great musician and...More

I cannot tell you how the food was, because it did not arrive until an hour later and we had to go. However, I am impressed that this restaurant donated part of their space to an organization that provides nutritious meals to children living in...More

I went to eat there and a large dog came out of the kitchen. I was not sure if it was friendly or not. No one came out to take my order. When I finally went to look for a wait staff and when I...More

The food is good--especially the Lemon Chicken--at this pretty restaurant, but be sure to stop in when Carlos Funk can treat you to some Blues. He is wonderful!

We had a good lunch here. As with most restaurants in the area service is a little slow. Despite that we both had good meals.

We love Blind Lemons! Carlos, the owner, is well-known around town and super friendly, and he plays the blues some nights. The turkey burger is fantastic, as are the veggie burritos. The restaurant, itself, is lovely, and built by the owner.

Cleanest restaurant in San Marcos. The lemon chicken was recommended to us; it was absolutely superb along with the veggies and ice cold beer. Back in a heartbeat!

By far the cleanest restaurant in San Marcos and the only restaurant with western style bathrooms! The lemon chicken is excellent and the beer was ice cold; why try anything else?

Constructed in the colonial architectural style with parabolic arches and gardens, Blind Lemon’s reflects the tradition of Guatemala. And set in San Marcos La Laguna, a small Mayan village on Lake Atitlan, surrounded by towering volcanoes, Blind Lemon’s holds out an invitation to travelers who want good food served in a pleasing ambiance.Blind Lemon’s was built by a blues guitarist musician and cabinetmaker who wanted to create a music venue to attract the best in live entertainment, and give value and satisfaction to his customers. The restaurant features weekly Blues Nights, as well as big screen showings of recent Hollywood, documentary, art, and foreign films. We have had theatre presentations and circus performances here as well as a host of wonderful musicians who have played here. We also have a bar and billiards for those so inclined. Blind Lemons also features an wireless internet cafe.The building is large enough to host conferences and workshops and with advanced notice we can serve food for large groups.
