The Blue Lion

Blue Lion Jackson Wyoming 83001-1128

Since 1978, The Blue Lion has been serving French-inspired food in a small historic house in downtown Jackson. Forty-one years later The Blue Lion remains a fixture of the Jackson Hole fine dining scene. Starting at 5:30pm nightly, they serve up house specialties that range from cream cheese stuffed mushrooms to racks of lamb and elk tenderloin. In a refreshing throw-back to traditional restaurant dining, each entree also comes with a dinner salad. They also have live acoustic guitar music accompanying dinner almost every night, which makes this one of the Best Date Night spots in town. One of Jackson’s oldest fine dining establishments! Our signature rack of lamb and classic entree selections are available year round.

    While on our trip, we ate a lot of lamb. One of the best lamb racks is the one at The Blue Lion (it was suggested by a local here in Jackson). Portion to price is very palatable. The crust on the perfectly cooked lamb rack adds a sweet note to it. It makes it sing. For a starter, we ordered duck cakes. Delish. The French onion soup was tasty and even though I'm not a salad person, even the salad was yummy. The service was great. Our server was a very down-to-earth fella. We enjoyed chatting with him.

    Started off with delicious grilled Wasabi elk and the restaurant won me over with my fiance plate of the roast rack of lamb. That jalapeño mint sauce is definitely a new flavor for me. Definitely want the recipe on that. ... I got the huckleberry scallops which was still pretty good. But when I go again I'd get the rack of lambs instead. We came near closing so it was just us at the restaurant. When we entered there was some customers and they were raving about the food. And they weren't kidding! ... When I'm in the area again later this year we will definitely put in a reservation! ... Update: Visited again recently and still love the restaurant! Even when one of the dishes wasn't available they gave me my tiramisu on the house to make up for it.

    We enjoyed the elk tenderloin and local trout. The salad and house dressing was very good. Carlos played guitar on the porch while were there, which was really nice.

    I came by myself on a busy Saturday night and received outstanding service from Radu and the rest of the staff! I ordered both the elk and the stuffed mushroom appetizers, followed by the rack of lamb entree. Everything lived up to its name; I absolutely LOVE lamb, and this is the best that I have had so far. Definitely stop by after visiting Teton or Yellowstone!
