It has nice food and ambience, but lousy service. The wait staff are slow, not polite, and lacking professionalism. It's really nice to sit outside, though, especially if you're staying at the neighboring hotel.

Had a reservation (recommended), got a table for two in the courtyard. Food was phenomenal and the service was attentive, knowledgeable and friendly.

We happened to be staying at the adjacent Tallman Hotel (itself delightful) on a night when there was live music in the saloon. The atmosphere was fun, the service was efficient and, most importantly, the food was delicious.

a nice restored resataurant, with great service, eat in or out and good selection of wines and food, a bit more on the expensive side, but good food. The stormchaser says I enjoyed it

Sometimes you just want a tasty hamburger and homemade fresh slice of berry pie. For little extra, order the garlic fries! Yum! You get all that here!

We were glad the Blue Wing was able to squeeze us in at an outdoor table after we arrived around 6:30 pm without a reservation. It took a bit too long for the server to make first contact with us, but she was plenty busy...More

Outstanding food and service in the garden or in the restored restaurant/saloon. Fountains, shade trees and art accompany your meal. Excellent wines. Creative locally sourced food. Adjoining the Tallman Hotel. Cute little town which was once the last stop on the stagecoach trail.

Thanks for the helpful comments about your experience at the Blue Wing. Glad you liked the bean appetizer and sorry about the Avocado Toast, which generally comes out very well. There’s no cream cheese in the avocado purée- it’s vegan, puréed with edamame beans. We...More

The Blue Wing was opened in 2005 on the site of a well known local saloon of that name that operated from the 1880s until the 1920s. It is separated by a relaxing garden from the fully restored Tallman Hotel. A full bar and seating inside is complimented by seating in the garden and on a heated veranda. Quality food and drink is served in a relaxing atmosphere at lunch and dinner seven days a week. Live music is performed at Sunday Brunch, Sunday Supper, Monday Night Blues and for the special $20 Tuesdays.
