Ate here on a Sunday brunch, mimosa are a steal! Usually get pineapple mimosa. Love the HoT Mess. The lamb burger was okay. The egg Benedict bread was burnt, I didn't touch it. Great service by Dillon

Dexter's has a great selection of sandwiches and light dish meals. I have eaten there for lunch and dinner and both are delicious. It does get busy at lunch time and on weekends but it's worth the wait.

We visited here for the very first time tonite- it will not be our last, for sure. Relaxed atmosphere, not pretentious- unusual for this community. We would not have changed anything. I had the French dip with truffle fries - it was loaded with meat and the au jus had so much flavor. Our server, Evan, was attentive but not... More

Good food and fun night with family. I had filet of beef. It was huge and cooked perfectly! Delicious mojitos! We asked to be seated away from live band which was accommodated.

We were appalled at the uncleared tables around us, and the unswept floors, while the staff seemed more interested in socializing among themselves. Food was great, but would have enjoyed a sparkling clean atmosphere.

We were disappointed in the cleanliness of the restaurant and the food was average. Not what I expected in Winter Park.

The only thing higher than my expectations was our server! Our food was excellent and reasonably priced, wonderful selections and the establishment is on spot bistro. The uptown french dip one of the best I 've had. Truffle Fries are to die for!! Our only disappointment was our server who had no idea what the daily specials were and when... More

Our food was delicious (lamb burger and French Dip roast beef), the staff very hospitable AND they offer a discount for Winter Park Playhouse patrons. Dexters is a nice complement to our date day at the theater

Dexters was great. My friend & I walked in looking at seating at the bar. There were only singles seats but room where another chair could be. The bartender was attentive to see us looking & came over & pulled another chair. We didn't try the food but the drinks were good. I think they were called Caribbean Paradise. The... More

Although they share a menu, they clearly have an inferior kitchen to the one in Lake Mary. Mediterranean Pasta Toss was way too oily and overcooked. Others at the table, who had also dined with us a few days earlier in Lake Mary, concurred. Too much oil, too much sauce or dressing, overcooked. Nice staff and lively bar, but they... More
