    It took a while for the server to greet and acknowledge us in the beginning. I would say a good 15 minutes. I had to go to the host and ask for the server who was literally right next to our table. However, once she acknowledged us she was pretty good. Food came out fast, drinks were a little slow but that’s a bar issue. Not a ton of menu options but Other then that I would go again.

    Not a huge selection on their menu but the food was good that we ordered. Our waitress was not friendly or welcoming at all and almost acted like it was a bother to take care of us. The hostess was very inviting. I would go back but I would make sure I got a different waitress lol I’ve been here several times and never had a problem

    Service was excellent. Food was very good, however some things were not hot when served - The DexMex eggrolls, the crabcakes. Also the sauce for the Egg rolls was not very good or complementary to the eggroll. The drinks were very good and cold and water was refilled properly. Value for food and drinks was excellent. Only the men’s bathroom was available and the bathroom and the hallway had a very bad odor.

    We sat outside. Perfect. The only bad thing was allowing smoking outside. To be honest, we moved ourselves to another table, yet it was very smoky still. Might consider no smoking completely .

    Asked for a quiet area, but within 20 minutes (7:30) the drummer was putting on a gig, publicity thing I guess, but there went the quiet atmosphere. Menu was very limited from our last visit, mostly hand held items except for my husbands salmon. Calamari was not fresh. I ordered a margarita but it came with jalapenos in it! The waitress knew I did not want anything spicy or hot from when I ordered the seafood burrito, and she apologized. Got me a new one. I had severe stomach issues later that night, apparently from the burrito. My husbands cosmo was probably the best item! It was our 32 anniversary and sorry to say I won't be back. What happened to the great menu from before!

    We really had a nice evening... the only thing I would say is that open table's app asked if there was a special event and I put on there that it was our 25th and that we wanted a certain dessert (and we wanted to pay for it) but no one told our server. I did ask her after she delivered our check and she gladly gave it to us but just wish the open table would have highlighted it to the hostess and the server. it was rectified but just would have loved for it to have been seamless ;)

    Advance reservation for 3 was at 7:30 on 3/5/2022 with Rocket Fly performing. Waited for table to be cleared and ready. Our waitress seemed to be trying to cover tables around the bar and the dining area which caused delays in initial drink orders, meal orders and follow-up. The appetizer flat bread was ordered and took over 30 minutes to arrive cold which was refused and reordered with our food. Reordering drinks was difficult without seeing the waitress. Over one hour later the meals arrived and the band started playing. The volume and base sound was so loud that we had to leave before the first band break and ran into another couple near the movie theater complaining of the same experience. Sitting near the back of the dining area we could see several other couples left before we did. The manager should have spotted or heard the problem but nothing was changed causing a loss of profits from fewer drinks and meals being served.

    Was seated promptly and served quickly. Food was delicious! Chicken Nuggs were perfectly cooked, crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside with a very delicious dipping sauce. Salmon tacos were cooked perfectly with garnish that worked perfectly together. The quality of the food is always on point.

    It’s been years since we’ve been to Dexters and they close the ones that were down in Orlando by us and then have the new concept now on Lee Road. Anyway we missed the old Dexters and when I heard there was one in Lake Mary and we were going to be going up to Topgolf I thought let’s go there. The hostesses were very beige in personality. We had a reservation for five and they stuck us at a four top and put a chair at the end in the bar. I specifically requested not a high top and we got… high high top. They did move us So that was good. The menu was very different from the old Orlando locations. It was much smaller and also way more basic only may be a step above bar food. Overall it was fine but we probably won’t go back because it really wasn’t the experience that we took are out of town guests to have.

    Jaliyah was an outstanding server, very attentive, providing detailed recommendations of the special dinner entree. The dining room was a bit too chilly, so she moved us to the patio. Our entrees were prepared as requested and all delicious. She made sure our beverages were refilled quickly, provided updates on our order, checked back after delivered, along with processing our payment quickly.
