I love the creative menu.
I love the creative menu. Portion sizes are much larger than you expect. Had the chicken cutlet - two large pieces that were very good. Also had the bacon-wrapped meatloaf which was excellent. Be careful not to fill up on the fries - my wife and I split the appetizer and it was almost a meal in itself. Prices no higher than you would pay at Carraba's or Red Lobster. I was a bit surprised that there were tables open at 7 pm on a Saturday night. That got me worried - guys please don't go to a big chain restaurant when unique places like this need your business and give you a better value.

Convenient & the food was delicious
We were looking to have dinner somewhere near before going to see a Musical @ Bob Carr. The pork w/Brussels sprouts and the cauliflower with cheese sauce (usually served with purple mash, but wasn't available) was excellent! Our waitress was very good, location was great, minutes from Bob Carr and we will DEFINITELY be back soon!

Good food, fun place . Nice variety. Always a pleasure. Been going there for years, my friends commented that the menu is the same as ever.

a special occasion
My son graduated from Olympia High School and the ceremony was held at the UCF Arena. We were looking for a place that would be energetic, moderately priced and fun to have lunch after the ceremony. My oldest daughter had eaten at Dexter's once before and suggested that we make a reservation. It was the perfect place for us to come. We had a reservation for 8 and then had to up it to 11. It was no problem for the change. Our waiter was very patient with us and we thoroughly enjoyed the meal. My family will definitely come back as well as recommend Dexter's to our friends. The food was delicious and quite filling! I'm not sure that I could claim a favorite dish. It was all good!!

We went for a birthday lunch
We went for a birthday lunch for my wife. This was our first time here, I had the blackened chicken and shrimp salad and my wife had the salmon salad. The portions were great and the prices were reasonable. We'll be back!

Dinner for four
Dexter's has a bright atmosphere. There is a energetic vibe but, we were able to tune out the others as we lost ourselves in our table for four. We enjoyed a lovely sauvignon blanc (can't remember the name!). We started with chicken and goat cheese empenadas as well as artichoke dip. My salmon entree was cooked to perfection. Always a favorite spot to meet up with friends!

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.

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.
As a side note, we used the Open Table app to make our reservations which was quick and easy.
