This was such a cute and charming place to have dinner. Very hip and trendy. The building was awesome and great architecture. The food was absolutely amazing. I had the strip steak with onion strings complete with truffle butter sauce. It was delicious! The onion strings were very good. My Husband had the salmon and he said it was very... More

We decided to stop there for dinner- after reading good reviews on tripadvisor. We sat at the bar waiting for a table (we did not have a reservation) and got a table even before getting our drinks (5 minutes). The service was excellent and staff is very friendly. We shared an appetizer (shrimp bruschetta) and I had the salmon salad... More

Visited during Baseball All Star week. Right over the Roebling (sp?) bridge from the sports stadiums and near the Covington waterfront hotels. Indoor/outdoor dining, small bar inside. Good service and diverse menu - from burgers to "award winning steaks" 4 stars since waitress did not process the order correctly. (No verified SAT scores needed to get hired)

Decided on Blinkers based on their reviews and the fact it was walking distance from my hotel. Hostess was very cordial and sat me right away. The atmosphere is dynamic however the restaurant seating area is kind of cut - up and segmented and the back area is very loud due to it being all brick and tile. There was... More

A group of elementary history teachers studying about Kentucky as a border state stopped at Blinker's on the way back to Ohio. They loved it!!! Food, service, and atmosphere were outstanding. They want to bring their families back to visit.

There's lots to be said for Blinkers. The food, the staff and the location are all top notch! We frequent Blinkers A LOT for Sunday Brunch. The Breakfast Sandwhich (with a fried green tomato) is my favorite...my partner loves the Eggs Benedict. We're there a lot on Monday evenings as well for their $5.00 burger night. They have a great... More

Came upon this place walking around and decided to eat here. Italia helped us out and got our group together on the sidewalk. What a great place to relax, eat, and enjoy the neighborhood. Out steaks were outstanding and I now know why they've received awards for their food.

We read the reviews and were looking for nice "unique" place to have a comfortable lunch with a personality, decent casual ambiance and very good food. We found it on a little street in Covington. It started when our waitress introduced herself and explained the specials. After she left the table my wife remarked on her good vocabulary...her service was... More
