We’ve eaten at the Blue Lion several times over the past 20 years and it is always a pleasure. If you love elk tenderloin you must have it here. Always the best!

It's safe to say, I don't go to Jackson for a weekend without a reservation at the Blue Lion. Be prepared for a 'local' menu with great twists and robust flavors. If you happen to be in Jackson during the off-season (e.g. November before the...More

Food and wait staff is outstanding. We had hazelnut encrusted chicken with a mandrin Florentine sauce and the elk tenderloins. Super good! The place is small so make reservations and bring your own wine.

We had an excellent dinner at Blue Lion. We are locals, and I can say this is truly one of the best in Jackson.

The place is not an accessable restaurant! We had to help our mother up the outside steps and into the restaurant. Once inside we were told they would get a table ready for us. We waited in the bar area. When the hostess said our...More

We had dinner here one night and really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. The restaurant is located inside an older house near the town square, so reservations are recommended, as they have limited space. If you have the opportunity to have a meal here, I...More

The prices are very high here. We did not have the best experience with the food however as the streak we had was literally 50% blubber fat. When you pay premium for a Ribeye, you expect fat...but not half the steak. The food did not...More

Busy place. First night, stopped by but all seats were booked; so we made reservations for the next evening, a Sunday. Not as busy then. Shared a wonderful lamb meal with soup and a salad. Good service. It was expensive.

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 those early days mostly due to retired head chef, Tim Libassi who's was with me for almost 25 years. 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 diner. We are open nightly at 5:30 and usually feature an acoustical guitarist as entertainment.
