We stayed in the Tallman hotel, so probably the only choice for diner was the saloon. Food was very good, sitting on the porch was very agreable and since it was mondaynight, it was bluesnight, so the music was top notch. All put together, we...More

The tree shaded patio with the fountain was very pleasant and cool on a hot day. We had a gazpacho and stir fried vegetables. Great flavours and well presented. Makes a change from the black bean burger that most bars think meet the needs of...More

Not sure who is to blame, but in spite of the charming atmosphere, the pleasant music and fairly decent food, there is absolutely NO excuse for having to track down a server after being seated for 15 minutes to be told one would be sent,...More

I'm very sorry for your experience at the Blue Wing. This was a series of events on Sunday that doesn't happen often here, but your experience was clearly unacceptable. Before reading your review, we discussed your experience yesterday at our weekly management meeting. We all...More

Very good food and delivers room service to the Tallman Hotel next door. Beautiful setting outside as well. Sunday Brunch is fabulous with entertainment outside from the Tallman Hotel.

Everything was made fresh on site including the ice cream. The Scallops and meatloaf were delicious. I didn't care for the Strawberry Rhubarb pie as it tasted more of blueberries cooked down in a thin juice rather than thickened filling. The flavor was mild and...More

Very sorry about your experience on Monday. Every Monday from 6:30 to 9:00 we feature danceable blues bands in the restaurant. Any music we have on other evenings is only of the background variety. Monday evenings here are very popular locally. This would have been...More

As an adjunct to the Tallman Hotel, they are woven together. Lovely outdoor seating in a carefully and artfully designed garden. Live music. Wide selection of drinks.

I love this place. I've always eaten outside and the ambience is spot on. Cool mix of tables and adirondack chair clusters, festive string lights, all under the shade of a huge tree. The food and service are fantastic. Had the meat loaf this last...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.
