We left the hotel and decided to walk around the area and have lunch. Blinker"s had an outside area and the food looked good,so we chose here to eat. And it was one of the best meals we had ever had. The food was wonderful and the service was excellent. We enjoyed all the recommended dishes and the conversation. Would... More

The service was a bit slow but the in house smoked trout was worth it. I will ask next time for something other than the cauliflower purée as I did not care for it.

We had reservations at a staple for us in Cincinnati but then we ran across Blinkers Tavern on tripadvisor,com. We decided to give it a try since we were staying in Covington and it was close. It's a quaint little bar and restaurant with a super friendly and accommodating staff. My wife ended up having their rib special and loved... More

Not great atmosphere, but darn good food. Looks like a sixties pub that could stand some upgrading. Nice menu, decent wine list. Good service. Small bar up front. Walking distance to Riverside hotels. The best part, however, is the beef. Steaks of excellent quality cooked to perfection.

Everything was as described in earlier reviews. The server was very attentive and the manager was very visible throughout the establishment talking to guest. I had the Blinker Steak which was perfectly cooked and tasty too. Recommend this one.

We had dinner here before a play at the Carnegie because of the great reviews for Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. There were six of us and we had a variety of dinner options and they were all really good. Julie's was out server and was out of this world. She really knew the menu and really enjoyed... More

We went here as as a last minute change of plans, but we were pleasantly surprised with both the service and the quality of the food! We both ordered the steak special, my wife got macaroni and cheese, and the mashed potatoes, I got the side salad and green beans. All the food was great. I've had steaks for twice... More
