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.

Was up in Orlando for the weekend, and needed something satisfying when we got off the road...then, the next morning, we just couldn't leave without going back for brunch! Dexter's has a full bar, some craft beers, plus a very nice wine selection. Food menu is diverse and full of gourmet deliciousness. Indoor and outdoor seating. TVS to catch a... More

Cool restaurant near downtown Orlando with a retro vibe and unique menu. Even though this place obviously caters to the carnivorous crowd, myself and another colleague of our large group are vegetarian and we both found great meals. I really enjoyed the beer/cheese dip with chips and one of their really unique salads. The rest of the group gorged on... More

Always great food and service. I sat at the bar this go around. Service is friendly and attentive. If there for brunch, have the Ultimate Breakfast Cuban ($14)...it is OFF THE HOOK! It's the sweet relish that really makes it. I have never had a bad meal there and even if I did, I'm certain that they'd want to make... More

A friend threw a birthday party for his wife here for about thirty. The management and staff could not have been more accommodating. Fresh seafood was prepared perfectly. Great wines and wonderful service. A great time!
