This is a favorite stop for us when we travel through the area. Tonight we enjoyed splitting a Shrimp Louie and a Bison cheeseburger with fries. It was more than plenty for the two of us. The burger was cooked perfect. We ended the evening with pumpkin cream Brulé which was yummy!

We took our Aunt and Uncle here and it is one great place to eat. I had the Black & Blue Bison Burger medium rare and it was the best burger I have ever had! It was tasty and had a ton of flavor. The garlic fries are great but too damn many! The salads are great and order extra... More

So surprised to find really good dining! The food was excellent, we ate on the outdoor deck which was very pleasant, the service was way above average. Very happy with the entire experience. Especially recommend the homemade desserts - I had the spiced plum sorbet which was heavenly.

We visited with friends and family on a Tuesday evening, the location is great the terrace lovely. Service was OK though the food a bit average. We had the Tuesday night special. There were some local singers on which gave a great atmosphere of small town America. Sorry guys but as singers better keep a day job.

Nice old bar building, but average food. We keep giving it a chance, hoping they will get better but the food is very inconsistent. Like the Calamari salt and pepper, it was undercooked and doughy. I wish I had sent it back. If they would step it up a bit with there quality of food, it would be the place... More

You should take a drive to this quaint little restaurant. Outside dining in a courtyard. Take a walk around the grounds to view the artwork/sculpture

$15 for a hamburger & garlic fries is exorbitant. I wish a chain restaurant would come into Lake Co., California and cause these Mom & Pop joints to compete ! I'd like to see an Applebee's come in and clean house. Earth to restaurant cor- porations = be the first chain restaurant here in Lake Co. and make us happy.... 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.
