Great Steak, Great Service

We visited Blinker's Tavern for dinner. Steak was fantastic and dessert was great! Suggest the Blinker's steak! Also, suggest asking for Virgil as your waiter....did a fantastic job! Food was great! Service was great! We will be back!

Went there for dinner on a Saturday evening with another couple, food was good and the service was excellent. Our friend is still talking about the horseradish mashed potatoes.

Blinkers is a reasonably priced restaurant with wonderful food and drink. I have eaten there several times and look forward to it whenever I go. On Mondays the special is $5. hamburgers and on Tuesday nights it's New York strip steak for under $20. including a salad and potato.

Short walk from Embassy Suites-got a table outside as we arrived, no wait (was late afternoon). Had a great waiter (Jeff). Food was good, fast service, great prices. Would return!

Go here for lunch weekly for the best burgers around. The food has never disappointed me. However, service there is very slow during the lunch rush. A 1 hour lunch here is very rare to come by...today especially. Told there was a 10-minute wait to sit inside though I counted 6 empty tables along the walk to the back-patio. Server... More

Stopped in for a burger and was not disappointed! The bacon cheddar burger had 2 large strips of bacon and an ample amount of cheese. The bun was very good too! The burger was tasty and cooked exactly as ordered. It was served with chips but you can substitute a salad or fries for $1. I had the salad, which... More

We were so glad that we chose to eat at Blinker's when we were in town last weekend! Adorable little restaurant with a fun atmosphere. Really enjoyed my mixed drink and our spinach artichoke appetizer!!! Highly recommend.

Good pub food. Cold beer. Limited tap selection. The Blu burger was good. My wife had the scallops which were also good but over priced. The spinach dip - a dish we like to think we are experts on, though we could be deceiving ourselves - was mediocre. I would skip it if I was you...or me there again. We... More

I ate dinner at this restaurant on a Saturday night. I followed my server's advice and ordered the crab-encrusted filet and it was one of the best filet's that I have had. The meal came with a side salad full of fresh greens and I ordered the potatoes au gratin for my side item. Everything tasted fresh and delicious. My... More

We went on Saturday for the New York Stip special and it was well worth the trip, It was not too warm so we were able to sit outside. Very nice atmosphere. The food was excellent and the service couldn't have been better. Oh, and we got dessert to go. Best Chocolate Cake ever!!
