A word from Dexters of Thornton Park
Dexter's has been in business since 1984. A local and established casual hangout that takes food and wine very seriously. Enjoy over 30 wines by the glass or bottle, full bar, excellent service, and award winning Sunday brunch (peoples choice). Enjoy a simple build your own sandwich or a carefully prepared entree, everything is made fresh when you order it. Choose from the main menu or one of the cafe menu inserts that takes advantage of ingredients that are in season. These inserts and winelists change every other month, so there is always something new and different to enjoy ! The cuisine fuses many different culinary styles, there is something for everyone. The sidewalk cafe is popular as it is located on an old cobblestone street in an eclectic neighborhood. Wine List pricing is very fair and makes for a nicer bottle to enjoy. Check insert menus for organics and local farm raised fruit, vegetables and meats. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Come in from out of town two to three times a year. This is one of my favorite places for brunch - first for the chicken and waffles and second for the location. Wonderful area to walk after the meal and take in some of the sights of the Lake and vendors. Service is great. Staff are professional and attentive. Definitely recommend!"

  • "I have been coming to Dexter's for years. I made this reservation for a Saturday on Tuesday evening. We had a large group for brunch at noon. When we arrived there was no table ready. 12:15, still no table. We finally had to point one out to the hostess that would fit us. The food was good and waitress great. I am just not sure why I made a reservation if they has nothing ready and no intent to reserve the table."

  • "I've been in Orlando for quite some time and I can't believe I have never been to Dexters! My friend and I booked a table on a Wednesday night which proceeded our trip to the Bob Carr. We informed the server (using Open Table) of our need to be out at a certain time, and she was very accommodating. We enjoyed our meal. I was impressed by the variety of dishes on the menu, many of which I had not seen at any other Orlando restaurant, and chose the swordfish with pepper jack cheese grits. My friend, who grew up in New Orleans, said they were the best grits she had ever had. Her lasagna was delicious also. I look forward to returning and exploring the menu some more!"

  • "Our Valentine started at this restaurant large Terrance but NO heater for the outside :( no one was in the terrace ... As we enter the restaurant the hostesses did get our table quietly and left ( no friendly words) then our waitress was just doing her job without giving more attention just the necessary to get by ... The food was good it will have been very nice to have special napkins or candle anything to make us feel a little in the StValentin mood :( that was very desapointing no effort and no capuccino machine :( oh well!! But overhaul this will be a great neighborhood hangout . Will go back on a regular day No special occasion !"

  • "Crab cakes were tasty but served barely warm, almost cool in the middle. I would have sent them back to be heated but we had to leave for the airport and I was afraid it would take too much time. Others at my table enjoyed their entrée salads."

  • "My only complaint is that some of the food items may not be up to par. My boyfriend had a garlic pasta that was delicious, but I on the other hand, had a Mahi Mahi sandwich that tasted like it came straight from the ocean. Mahi is generally a mild fish, so I was really surprised at the extreme flavor, almost as though the chef lost control of his shaking ability with the Old Bay seasoning. I got about half-way through the sandwich until I couldn't stomach it any more. Everyone in my group seemed pleased with their meal though, so I'm willing to try some other menu items."

  • "I brought my friend for her 28th birthday. I requested that they sing happy birthday to her through OpenTable and it never happened. The food was good and the waitress was nice but I was hoping for a booth and they sat us at a high top. It felt like a regular night out and not the special dinner for my friend that I had envisioned."

  • "Jaryd was our server. He was prompt and helpful. The restaurant was out of the Baked Brie appetizer and he was able to recommend a worthy alternative. Knowing that we were on a time crunch for a play, Jaryd balanced the pace of service to meet our time needs. The food presentation was nice and tasted just as good. We have been to the Winter Park location many times but this was our first trip to this location. Next time we are in the area we will definitely make a return trip. Thank you As a side note, we used the Open Table app to make our reservations which was quick and easy."

  • "Dexter's provided such a fun and accommodating environment to celebrate my birthday with friends. I loved the art on the walls, the food was great and the service was wonderful. They accommodated me really well in spite of my reservation continuously growing."
