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.

Nice place, friendly staff, cozy atmosphere, a little pricey and nothing really special to write home about, so it will due. So-so beer selection, check around some other spots and you can be the judge....

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

The reviews for Blinkers are all so wonderful, I almost feel as though I went somewhere else by accident. This was our first visit to the restaurant, and we were fully expecting a top notch experience. On the positive side, the atmosphere was comfortable and relaxing, the server polite and engaging. The restaurant was clean and adequately lit. We ordered... More

My husband and I travel to the Cincy area once a quarter for business. We stay on the Ky side of the river and love to sample the various restaurants that Covington has to offer. However, I think our sampling days are over after a visit to Blinker's Tavern, as we can't wait to return three months from now for... More

Please note that Wed is half price appetizers all day! Went for lunch, and it took forever to get our food. Most people liked their food. I thought the chicken tenders were pretty bad. The mac/cheese app was decent. So, that's why I'm saying it was just ok.

We decided to go here for our 17th anniversary , and our grown children joined us.(2nd marriage if you are doing the math). It was a very nice evening. Food was excellent and service was great. My only complaint is it is a bit noisy, but that's pretty typical for a tavern atmosphere .

We've eaten here more than once; we like the atmosphere and the decor. The food is not over priced, the menu is varied and we like coming here. It's a great place that is not your 'big chain' type of restaurant. Try it - you'll like it!

We had reservations for a party of 6 on a Saturday night and we were sat right away. 4 people ordered the NY Strip & all of them loved it - some saying it was the best steak they've had in a long time. There seemed to be a nice sear on the steaks. I got the Shrimp Scampi Risotto... More

We greatly enjoyed our first visit here. Arrived about 6 PM on a Saturday night and waited about 45 minutes for a two top. Enjoyed a glass of wine at the small bar just inside the entry (not a lot of room for those waiting). This is a very homey place with warmly painted walls, horsey artwork, old restored wood... More
