Service was very friendly. Called before I went and it seemed like they wanted to servo me. Parking in the back is ok There is plenty of parking around anyway. Hostess was helpful and groovy. I had a great experience. The ny strip is very tasty and perfectly cooked.

Just ate here tonight and I was very satisfied with the food and the service. If I lived here I would be a regular. The staff was friendly and attentive without being overbearing. My server gave me great suggestions and when I told him that the onion tanglers that came with my steak were great there just needed to be... More

My wife and I have gone a number of times. the steaks and burgers are quite excellent! Especially if you hit "the special night!" when prices are low. We have taken children and seen neighbors and all are well served!

Blinkers was about a 15 minute walk from the Holiday Inn where were staying, and is near about 3 other bar / restaurants. It looks like a smallish neighbourhood bar from the outside but is deceptively spacious once you get inside. It was fairly busy but we were seated straight away. We both ordered pasta and they were absolutley delicious,... More

My wife and I were returning home after a weekend trip to Indianapolis and after searching TA for a a good restaurant in the Cincy area for dinner we settled on Blinkers in Covington. Parking wasn't too difficult and they were not busy and we were quickly seated outside at a nice table by the hostess. Our waitress came by... More

Just had a great dinner with my daughter. Started out with the cheese sticks which were the best I have ever had. My daughter agreed too. Then I had the Blinker Steak, my daughter the NY Strip. Both steaks served with fried onion strips , cooked to perfection. We finished off the meal with the best chocolate cake we have... More

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.
