Homey and cozy, the Blue Lion is a Jackson institution that has been housed in the same 1930s home since it opened in 1978. Tables are grouped under stained glass windows, and in summer, the shady front patio hosts live acoustic music. The place is known for its rack of lamb with jalapeño mint sauce, plus its tenderloins (beef, bison, and elk) and grilled fish. French onion soup and buffalo ravioli appetizers are stand-outs.
