Finally went to this restaurant after driving past it for many years. We arrived when it opened and waited over 3 hours to get seated. It seemed to us a lot of the people who came in after us were seated first. There were only two of us. It appeared they wanted to fill every table to the max since they have limited seating. The hostess kept saying your table will be available soon. We were told by many locals the steaks were outstanding. In my opinion the food was mediocre at best. I grew up in the Chicago area and know what a good steak is! Will never go to this restaurant again or ever wait in any restaurant for more than an hour to get seated..
This place was highly recomended to us and we were anxious to try it out. Went on a Thursday and early so we didn't have to wait like so many others have said, but when we came out about an hour later there were people waiting outside. Very small inside and waitress was ok.
Wife ordered a steak hamburger and it was horrible. The waitress said it was frozen as they don't sell many of these. She made no effort to make it right. I had the Filet and it was good but not great. The steak comes sizzling very hot to your table and there is alot of smoke/steam in the small dining room. Kind of quaint if you like that sort of thing.
The bar tender was very friendly. We felt that this restaurant is over rated and wonder why so many locals recommend it. There are alot of
excellent restaurants in this area that are cheaper and have more atmoshere (on a lake) and really seem to want your business. We probably won't be going back to Blink Bonnie anytime soon.
I went to Blink Bonnie's last Saturday night, had to wait 2 hours but had a wonderful dining experience; my steak was grilled to perfection & FLAVORFUL. The hash browns were very tasty & not greasy. The before dinner salad was fresh, fresh ingredients, with awesome home-made house dressing. The dinner rolls were served warm which is always a plus. Overall, despite the wait, I had a fabulous dining experience & will definitely go back.
