This restaurant was recommended by the Inn keepers where we were staying. There was a great food selection and the portions were quite large. My husband and I both enjoyed our meal.

I agree that the outdoor eating is small but it may be manageable depending on the size of the dog I would call the restaurant to double check

Hi, Late in replying as been away. I found that they were able to adapt dishes for me and provide a number of gluten free choices as a result. This is a good restaurant and would recommend it to you

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.
