Our waitress had no forethought, and every time we asked for something, it was as though we were bothering her.

She also put in the wrong order for my father in law. By the time this was corrected and his meal was brought out, everyone else at the table was nearly finished with their meal. No one in the restaurant apologized for the inconvenience.

I had the mahi sandwich; it was bland and sub par. Service was terrible.

We go to the Dexter's in WP all the time and love it. I guess this one is different.

We are return customers at Dexters and try to eat there whenever we are in the area. Food and service are excellent and if you like art, the walls are filled with gorgeous paintings that are for sale. In fact, we purchased a painting there on one trip. Small outside area. Inside noise is kept to a manageable level by baffles hung from the ceiling - wish more restaurants would do this! Can't wait to get back there.

Dexter's is a hip little place with pretty good food and some great sandwiches. I try to go for Brunch for some various flavored mimosas. And I always get the Cha Cha chips- a basket of fresh potato and sweet potato chips with a sweet mustard sauce. I would definitely recommend this place for Brunch and for a nice little stroll at Lake Eola. The Dexter's in Winterpark is also very nice and a good place for Dinner.

Dexter's is THE place to go for brunch on Sundays. It is very packed and it's loud, but the servers are quite fun, quick to get you drinks, and they have a lot of drink deals on Sundays too. The food is really good, and I have never gotten a bad mean here. Highly recommend it!!
