Good food, good happy hour options. Great location.
Dexter's Sunday brunch is worth the trip! Excellent dishes, and an energetic atmosphere. The bartenders and servers are excellent; the best in the area! Heather was exceptional for us Sunday! Enjoyable way to celebrate Mother's Day!
We enjoyed a lovely Mother's Day brunch a day early. Excellent food, great waiter, and nice atmosphere.
Delicious as always.
This was my second visit to this restaurant in the past four weeks. Both times I had a reservation and both times I was seated in the same section where they must also seat large groups for parties, The first time it was really noisy. They have concrete floors and on wall is glass, which must amplify the noise.
This past Sunday, the noise was unbearable. It was created by a large table celebrating a birthday, and another table of eight who at times, stood up and shouted to the person at the end of the table.
My guest for dinner did not finish the meal, said they could not take it any more, and left.
What is so disappointing is that no one from the management staff cared, or did not walk thru their restaurant to see how things were going.
There is no way I can recommend this restaurant unless you are a glutton for punishment.
Great experience!! Heather was a great server, food was Awesome and worth the drive.
Arrived with 2 more that reserved for and were quickly seated with no issues. Food was very satisfying to all in group, child, teens and seniors.
Fish and chips heavy on the greasy side. 2 in group ordered fish and chips
A wedding rehearsal dinner was set up. Two tables running across the width of the restaurant. When the group came in to be seated, it was extremely noisy and some of their party stood behind our table talking loudly.
I don't fault the wedding party, Dexters should have completely blocked off ample room for such a large group.
Great salad and service. We will dine here’s again
Shame you changed your menu !! We used to loved the crab cakes. ..The breakfast is just not the same !!
Excellent service, excellent drinks, excellent food, excellent server ALexis!
I decided to try something new for my birthday and the good was delicious. My friends and I had a great time!
Food and service were excellent, as usual.
My husband and I just love this place! The food and service is great. Had their new fresh tuna salad and was wonderful.
This restaurant had an extremely high noise level where I could not even hear myself speak, let alone hear my guest. We were moved to a corner table that helped somewhat, but it was still not adequate. The food was fine as I have been to Dexter's in other locations, however, this location may have serious acoustical issues. Very disappointing visit. Service was fair but not to level expected.
I always come here, however this was the first time I’ve gotten sick from the food. I ordered the Cajun chicken pasta and ive been sick in bed ever since! I’m not sure the ingredients either. It was almost immediately afterwards in the parking lot where I was hunched over in the pain. I love this place, but I’d recommend anyone stay away from this particular dish.
Disappointed. I’ve been to other Dexter’s locations and this one isn’t up to par.
Came on a Friday night before catching a movie. We were promptly seated, and service was very good. Food was average. It’s not bad, it’s just nothing special for the price in my opinion. Im sure we’ll return as it is right by our favorite theater.
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.
Enjoyed - will go back
Craig was an excellent waiter and the overall experience was amazing!
Birthday party for my daughter.
Wonderful evening had by all
I think they were having a bad night. Soccer party going on made it loud and slowed down food service. Manager did come over to apologize. I have gone to Dexters before and enjoyed it, so I will be back.
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!
First time eating here and loved it! great friendly atmosphere & the food was perfect! great prices too! our waiter "Craig" was excellent!
Food was ok just nothing special.
When my friends visit from another town, they always suggest we go to Dexter’s for Sunday brunch. Never disappoints.
Great service and food. Enjoyed the live music & dancing after dinner.
We Love Dexters !! We go there at least 1 once a month.
Very bad services and bad attitude
waiter was great as was the snapper soup. my wifes roll could have been fresher my mahi sandwhch was good but i didnt like the sauce coffee was horible!!
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.
Great Customer Service
Good food. Able to bring our dog.
Food wasn't good. Had burger and the bun on the bottom was very soggy, Cuban sandwich had three little pieces of meat on it and way too much mustard which had a terrible taste. We thought it was expensive for quality of food
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!
We had a great time, the server was very attentive, and all of our food was correct. They made us feel welcome, and we stayed for a while.
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.
Want on Mothers Day this passed Sunday. Had Craig as a waiter. He was fantastic and really added to our experience. Food was excellent. Highly recommmeded!
