Pretty good lamb too. And creative, crafty cocktails (I had jalapeño nutmeg tequila drink). I didn’t like the jalapeño mint lamb sauce..but I did enjoy its uniqueness. And there was a daily special elk-in-a-blanket which was wonderful. The salad was solid too. The lamb that...More

I love the life guitar. He completely, single-handedly sets the mood for a nice dinner. The candles at the tables are a nice touch. I come here every year for my birthday. It’s perfect.

Excellent service, fair prices, popular with locals and visitors alike. Game is the specialty. Located in downtown Jackson Hole in an old house.

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 diner. We are open nightly at 5:30 and usually feature an acoustical guitarist as entertainment.
