“Tuesday night hot spot!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

No other place to be on a Tuesday night. Their burger specials are wonderful. Two burgers and fries, can't be beat!

“Change is Great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

Dexter's consistently change their daily menu and it is always interesting! The chef is really great, knowing how to put together meals that really look good on the plate and taste soooooo good to the palate! The prices are moderate with daily specials. You can actually enjoy conversation with those with you because the noise level pretty low. The salmon is fantastic... and since I like spicy food, I asked for the chili sauce (which the chef had enhanced) with it! It was so good and really worth eating!

“Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

Relaxed atmosphere for the mid-30's crowd. Typical bar/restaurant with a band that plays on Friday nights. Everyone in the restaurant was friendly, from hostess, waiter and managers! Food was good! Had the Parmesan shells with shrimp.. shrimp slightly over cooked and chewy, pasta perfect, slightly dry but delicious. Hamburger good as well. Wine is excellent, slightly expensive for a glass but delicious! Would recommend this to restaurant!
