The food was exceptional. This was dinner out for my birthday, and I spoiled myself with the crab crusted filet. It was truly awesome. The place is nice looking - not too dark, not too loud with TVs, etc. The only reason for the four rating was that our server hit two of my pet peeves. #1 - When you... More

Decided to go to this place because of proximity to our hotel and the reviews online. While we only went for lunch the trip was amazing. This place had an interesting spin on food. Pastas, burgers, and sandwiches. It is strange, but it works. Some serious attention is paid to the food. I ordered the Philly steak sandwich, the wife... More

Blinkers is not the place you want to go if you are looking for a quite, moody, romantic dinner. But, if you're looking for a varied menu with very good food, this is your place. Our service was very good and our food was served hot and nicely plated. Fish. Ribs. Burgers. Salads. Everything was great!

I took my girlfriend here for a nice Valentine's dinner. Don't let the "tavern" in the name fool you. This is fine dining in a nice but not "stuffy" atmosphere. Service was excellent! Food was excellent! We both had the bleu cheese encrusted filet and it was one of the best steaks I've ever had. The homemade bleu cheese dressing... More

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.
