We enjoyed food and drinks 3 times during our stay. The only negative was my Bloody Mary glass had a chip in it and cut my lip on the last visit.

This is a long one but I need to write this one. Let me begin by saying that I've been to this location at least 100 times in the past 6 years, and have had multiple conversations with the manager, so I am not new to Dexter's...However my experience yesterday, on New Year's day, was so frustrating that I don't...

Stopped in for lunch while staying downtown. This restaurant continues to be great. Friendly service. Good tasting food. I had the Cuban sandwich black beans and rice. All were flavored well and good portions. The server had me try the smoked salmon chowder. Wow!! I recommend it. They have their own chips appetizer that's worth sharing.

Stopped in for an early dinner. Was looking forward to their Neopolitan Eggplant as it has been good in the past. Today it sucked big time. Not sure what is going on in the kitchen but they might as well gotten it in the freezer isle at Costco. It was lacking crunch, sauce, and presentation. The draft beer selection also... More

This place looks super unassuming and casual, but after looking at the mouth-watering options on the menu, which was more upscale than I was expecting, I knew this was where we were eating. My mom, my dog, and I were promptly seated outside, and we were accompanied by 3 other dogs on the patio. The only reason I'm giving this... More

I found out about Dexter's going doing online research as our daughter is transferring to UCF (15 minutes from campus). What a great find! Charming neighborhood, great food, super friendly manager and staff! Brunch menu is full of items with an eclectic twist...excellent Bloody Mary's and Mimosas. Could not have had a better experience!

Love this little neighborhood in Orlando close to downtown. The menu has lots of great options; I chose the Cuban sandwich. My only disappointment was our server disappeared and I had to track her down to get our bill.

Having been to & taken out from Dexters many times over years visiting family...I was really shocked today. How many times have we all ordered items, gift certificates, Incredible Edibles, flowers, etc on the phone? I called to order a gift certificate and Greg, the manager, told me he couldn't do it unless I was in the restaurant. I said... More

I love Dexter's! It's one of my favorite spots in Orlando! I love the Smith salmon salad as well as the burger and sweet potato fries! Yummmmmmmmmm! The drinks are also delicious!! There are several locations around the city, and my fav is 1) Thorton Park; and 2) Winter Park! WP offers live music!! Check them out!!

We came to have brunch after shopping and it was great. I have never been to Thorton Park and it was really nice. Great food in a great neighborhood.
