Outstanding!

Came here on the tripadvisor rating and was NOT disappointed! This place was a great find. Nice but laid back environment. The food was very well flavored and cooked to perfection. The crab cake app is outstanding, I wish they offered it in a bigger portion as a dinner!

We were seated immediately without reservations on a Friday night. Our waiter Tracy had great recommendations on wine and food. Try the Char if it's available. Every course of our meal was served HOT, nothing sitting under heat lamps. It was a bit on the pricy side for 3 of us but well worth it. They also have a great... More

At the time I had dinner with my colleague here, this was the #1 restaurant in Covington, and it was walkable from the Marriott hotel (a staff member there recommended the place). Blinker's is supposedly "known" for their steaks, so my colleague ordered the Blinker's special steak (which was very tasty). I ordered scallops with caramelized Brussels sprouts. Our waiter...

I was in the area to race one of my horses at Turfway Park. So we raced down to Blinkers, but we only had an hour for dinner. This was on a busy Friday night for the restaurant. I told the waitress that we needed to be finished and out the door in an hour. Well she took it to... More

We came to Blinkers tonight with a group of 28. We received the best service from Audrey and Trevor, and the food was out of this world. So impressive that they could serve this large of a group so nicely with dishes prepared as if we were a small group. My husband and I had the filet mignon and it... More

A great spot near many hotels in downtown Covington. We had the tuna (definitely ask for extra ginger sauce on the side). It was cooked perfectly and came with green beans, also perfect. This meal fit way within my allotted calorie count for the day, per fitbit! My business friend had the salmon, which she enjoyed. Service was friendly, and... More

Met with friends for our monthly lunch. It was good - pleasant, clean place, friendly and accommodating staff - and for these reasons I give it a VG rather than Average. Everyone seemed satisfied with their meals although the offerings are not exceptional. I had the salmon salad and was impressed that the salmon was well prepared - medium/medium rare... More

Our destination was Cincinnati to see a play at the Aaronoff and spend the night. As it turned out, the Bengals were hosting a playoff game that night and there was not a reservation to be had in downtown Cincy (fortunately I had bought theatre tickets and booked a room months in advance!). So I turned to TripAdvisor for restaurant... More
