Based on the reviews, I had to pop in Blinkers just to see all the fuss. Now at my core, I'm a carnivore, but due to health reasons, I only eat beef about once every couple months so when I do eat a steak it had better be exceptional ! I went for the 12oz strip served with onion straws... More

It was a cold Sunday afternoon when we decided to stop in. We were eelcomed by their friendly staff. Ordered food from Lunch menu. I had steak sandwich. Requested medium rare and that was how it arrived. Very flavorful and tender. Their burgers were good. Great neighborhood tavern. Will definitely return.

It was our first night in Covington/Cinci. We got in late, we were hungry, it was a Friday night. This place took our reservation 30 minutes beforehand. We got there and it was very loud and busy. Good sign. The atmosphere was great, the service was wonderful (Our server was Virgil I believe, he was so nice and helpful). The... More

This is a great family restaurant with great food. Nothing fancy just simple and tasteful. I recommend the GOETTA Mac-n-cheese. It's awesome.

We visited Blinkers Tavern in January 2015 while on a trip to neighboring Cincinnati, Ohio. Located in Covington, Kentucky, Blinker's is a contemporary dining restaurant that has a steak and seafood menu and decent wine selection. We started our meal with a huge plate of fried calamari that was much more than I expected to get for the price. I... More
