Dexter's - Lake Mary Ratings and Reviews
We were looking for a place to stop before our final destination but didn't want fast food, This place was great! I wish we had one closer to where I live. The food was delicious. I had the greek burger and my boyfriend had the seafood burrito. Both were amazing.
Dexter's gives great for a great value. We were there this time for the New Years eve dinner. The manager Johnathan came and asked for our wishes.. Julia (our gorgeous waitress was caring and did an impeccable job. (Thanks both for working on new years eve.) Dexter's does not specifically raise the rates for special occasions therefore you can eat and have fun at a very reasonable price for a great food and drinks. (I love their Hendrix gin martinis, my wife enjoys the dirty vodka martinis.. Bar is also great.)
Excellent place for the money.
Food was delicious - very large portions and very tasty. Service was excellent. I hosted a group of 7 and everything was perfect. We were seated at a nice round table which was awesome. However, the temperature was set a little too cold. Probably wouldn't have been so bad if there were more people dining, but we had our sweaters on. Also, the lighting was a little too dark. Other than that, it was a great experience and I will be back!
The food was mediocre, too much pasta and small not de-veined shrimp. The band was terrible, some songs were not even recognizable and when some were, they were awful. I left early on this first date, needless to say that didn't go well. I had been to another Dexter's, the food was great and the band was also very good. Very disappointed. The server however, was excellent, always making sure everything was good.
Dexter's Lake Mary location is always a great experience...from the ambiance, the food, the service and of course, the live music. We always make a point to sit in the bar area for good people watching and good seats. This weekend we had their hamburger & fries, some nice drinks (and a great waitress BTW!) and danced to My Generation. Friends we hadn't seen in a long time showed up as well which made for a very fun night! Hope to see you there!
I think I was expecting a more upscale environment, so I was a bit disappointed to see that it was too casual for the special occasion I went there to celebrate. My eggplant was very good, but my fiancés pasta dish was only so-so, and did not seem to have much flavor to it. The service was good, but our waiter knocked over a full glass of water onto my lap which made for a very uncomfortable experience. I still left him a decent tip.
Dexter's is a fantastic spot for delicious food, friendly service, and atmosphere to boot.
I was there for my birthday, and had a great time. Dexter's has one of the best service teams around. Everyone from the hostess to the bartenders are personable and accommodating.
Normally, a great restaurant. There was something off on Wednesday night. Southwestern Quesadillas had almost nothing in them; Mediterranean Pasta Toss was just ok at best. We'll definitely be back as it is typically a great place to eat. Just not this past week.
Was staying at a nearby hotel & was looking for someplace to walk to. Great find. Definitely try the chicken egg rolls as an appetizer. 4 large pieces that were delicious. Could even eat as main course with a salad. Cobie fish also prepared well. Had a reservation & was taken almost immediately. Really enjoyed our meal here.
We are from out of town and found dexters because one on our favorite bands "hooligan from Orlando" was playing their. It was a great find. They have a menu to please anyone. We had the Brie appetizer and had the pecan crusted chicken for an entre. The food was awesome, out waiter Heather never let our drinks become empty . Strongly recommended this place. We will be back the. Next time we are in town.
We chose Dexter's for our immediate family reunion. There were 8 of us. That atmosphere is comfortable. The waiter was knowledgeable, and when asked about gluten free meals, he checked with the chef to be sure. Too our pleasure, he arranged for gluten free entrées. we would not characterize Dexter's as "fine dining," but it was solid comfort food at a reasonable price. We would return for a casual or business lunch. Great location; the neighborhood was great for an after-dinner stroll.
