This 1853 place is one of the originals in this time period in this small olden town. We wanted to go some place new and also different. Here we were able to do both for my wife's birthday. The insides still looks like the turn of the century style. After a movie in the city on Lakeport it wasn't that... More

We had dinner there two nights. The burgers, especially the bison burgers, seem to be the hot item here. They are very, very good. The fried calamari appetizer is excellent and is presented with a nice-sized serving. The seafood pasta and the salmon are excellent. Good service, too!

Very relaxing and a perfect place to recharge after wine tasting. The food was prepared with locally sourced ingredients. Any variation on their potatoes is great.

We dined at the Blue Wing twice during our stay in Upper Lake, as there are very few other dining options. Both evenings were a delight and service was very, very good. We had the crab cakes and calamari for starters one night and the soup the second evening, all great. These were followed by the pork chop (exceptional), beef... More

We were impressed first by the ambiance of the saloon and the nearby Tullman Hotel (we like history). The soup was hearty on a cold winter day. The fries are really good, and I think the grilled cheese even had garlic bread (garlic is a theme). Just a little disappointed that they overcharged us twice (only one that we noticed... More

Service was slow and still got order wrong! Steak was very rare and cold before it got to us. Vegetables were good! Atmosphere was ok! A little high priced for the amount of food!

After of day of wine tasting we were ready for a hamburger to soak up all that wine. We went to Blue wing based on a comment in Trip Advisor. We all had hamburgers, so I can't comment on the rest of the menu, but the hamburgers were great. I had the sweet potato fries which I also enjoyed. Most... More

The cafe was rebuilt using wood from the hotel and a tree from the front yard. Nice relaxing neighborhood feel. Oh, and the food is really good.

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.
