We had the pleasure of having dinner at Blinkers, to toast a great weekend getaway. We could not have made a better choice ! We were seated in a warm cozy atmosphere, where we had the pleasure of meeting Joe, our waiter for the evening....Joe made great recommendations for dinner, both steak and seafood. Joe promised us the best steak in Clearwater Beach. He was wrong ............ it was the best steak on the entire East Coast period ! The scallops and shrimp were impeccable ! We ended the evening with Blinkers scratch made bread pudding, a dessert that defines the word decadent. But what made the evening, was the great service and engagement from Joe !! He made the evening PERFECT, from start to finish. We highly recommend Blinkers, for the best dining experience in Clearwater Beach, bar none. And if possible, request to be seated at a table where Joe will take care of you. He is just exceptional !! Thank you Team Blinkers, for an exceptional dining experience. We will be back soon ,,,More

We had to getaway after being cloistered since last March, so chose to go visit the West Coast of Florida. While staying at the beach, we opted to find a good dinner place within walking distance of our hotel. we discovered Blinker's about two blocks...away and liked the menu, but wanted to find a beach view if possible. I mentioned this to the manager who was greeting guests and graciously recommended another nearby restaurant, where we could dine with a beach view. After visiting the beach view restaurant, we decided that the menu and the general friendliness of Blinker's was the better choice. It was. We both had seafood entrées, that were excellent. The atmosphere and service were excellent and the manager, Duane, checked on us frequently to assure we were having a lovely evening. All in all it was a great evening and we found a place well worth the trip across FL to dine.More

Decided to make reservations at this restaurant in Clearwater for dinner. Fine dining but casual if need be. Ordered the crabcakes as an appetizer which were unique and very good, for our main course we ordered the seafood fettuccine and filet. If you don't want...steak order it anyways cause this steak is one of the best we've ever had!! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Wonderful evening enjoying the fine dining casually!More

Went there after reading amazing reviews. The place was neatly cleaned, the staff was very friendly and trying to follow Covid precautions as much as they could. Too noisy in my opinion. Let’s talk about the food. I wasn’t feeling too hungry but my husband...and kids were starving. My husband ordered a Blinkers steak with broccoli which turned to be “good but not awesome”, it was cooked right but taste wise was not impressive. Kids options are very very limited and far from healthy. We ended up ordering another regular Blinker steak ($30) in order to share between my kids (4 and 8 years). Now let’s talk about me. I wasn’t feeling too hungry so I decided to ordered the chef soup of the day with an appetizer of Lobsters type nuggets (sorry but I can’t remember the name). The soup which was a creamy soup it was delicious BUT way too salty. I needed a lot of water afterwards and of course I had to say something. Disappointing. Then I received the lobsters type nuggets in an alioli base with corn and bacon. Let’s stop a moment here. I’m from the Caribbean, Puerto Rico to be exact, so we know about seafood. I was expecting something very delicious about this plate based on its description. Well, much to my dismayed I received something I can’t described. It was a piece of some type jelly type version of “lobster” covered in batter with absolute no taste. To remind you again I am from the Caribbean. This was far away from cooked Real Lobster. It was absolutely disgusting, which is a very horrible way to describe food but certainly is the only way I can describe this. I never leave reviews but this time I had to stop to express my dissatisfaction of this “over rated” place in my opinion. I can’t tell you this was the worse place I ever had food from but definitely I will never return. We ended up paying $100 including tip to the servers and I didn’t eat. So, here it is. I’m glad many others had a good experience, mine was very far from it.More

The service was okay, staff was very nice and pleasant. The only issue was that multiple orders were wrong or items were forgotten. Our waiter quickly went and got the missing items, but both steaks we ordered were over cooked. The food was good, but...not good enough to bring us back.More

We had dinner here based upon a recommendation from our hotel pool waiter. We ended up sitting at the bar where Rosie and Alex waited on us. While Rosie was pleasant - it was Alex who made our experience the best. He also made an...extremely good manhattan for my particular husband (well done Alex!) We ate shrimp cocktail, chopped salad and the grouper. I highly recommend all of it - although the salad was my favorite. We have been to Clearwater many times - and walked past this restaurant many times but was never intrigued enough to try it out. I don’t know if it’s the uninviting dark windows - or maybe the name. Blinkers doesn’t imply to me that the food may be something other than the usual fare - but I can assure you that it is well worth the visit!More

We were staying next door at the SandPearl Hotel and walked over for dinner. WOW, service was amazing, the homemade meatballs for an app was out of this world. I got the ribeye special with 2 shrimp, and 2 scallops. AMAZING AMAZING flavor is all...I can say. I travel ofter and have eaten at many top steak houses and it blew them out of the water with flavor. Let's just say is was better than my A9 Waygu I had the night before. There were 6 of us and everyone loved everything.More

We visited Blinkers Beachside. It was amazing please ask for Rachel. Timothy was our waiter and he is awesome. The steaks and grouper are the best. You have never experienced a steak like this. Duane Trachsel, General Manger came to personally ensure that we were...having an enjoyable dining experience. If you come to Clearwater. This restaurant is a must!!!!!’More
