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.

    Food was mostly 5 star, service 3 stars at best, but maybe he was a new waiter? 2 stars for waiter, 4 stars for hostess/busser, she was good. The rack of lamb is one of the best I’ve had and the scallops were good, it was nice to share these dishes with my hubby because scallops are never very filling. We also really enjoyed the crab stuffed mushrooms and the mud pie for dessert!

    When we come up from Florida we NEVER miss this wonderful restaurant. We buy gift certificates so our friends will be guaranteed to try it. They they keep going back. Everything on the menu is amazing, as is the service, attention to detail and overall feel. Great for an anniversary or birthday but do not miss this place even if you have to drive down from Yellowstone to eat here. Rack of lamb is always stunning. Their specials are great too.

    The Blue Lion was by far mine and my husband's favorite restaurant during our honeymoon to Jackson Hole. It started with the wonderful atmosphere of the restaurant. We were sat outside on the patio, and there was live music that was just loud enough to be pleasant but not too overwhelming. I had never had lamb before, so I was a bit nervous to try the lamb but WOW it was fantastic. Seriously one of the most tender pieces of meat I have ever bit into, and the flavor was amazing. My husband had the elk tenderloin and he really enjoyed his dish as well. We got the crab stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer and they were also so delicious. Also, the honey mustard vinaigrette on the side was one of the best dressings we had ever had. It is so nice that this place includes bread, sides, and a salad with your meal because we kept finding that the fancier restaurants in Jackson Hole would charge for every little thing. Most places are pretty overpriced due to how touristy it is, but we honestly felt like we got the most value out of our meal at Blue Lion. Worth every cent and will return on future trips!

    What a fantastic place! Amazing food and incredible people. My wife and I had an amazing time. Big shout out to Ashley (I'm pretty sure that was your name!) for helping secure a table for us after we found out the reservation my wife thought she made didn't go through. The musician playing guitar was super nice and very talented - great background music for a romantic date. Elk tenderloin and Tuna shown below. Both were incredible but I'd lean towards the Elk when in Jackson. Great spot - thank you for the great time!
