Sunday Brunch is BIG fun! Lots of people, a nice buzz of conversation. We were a party of six plus a 2 year old. The table was great - round and near the entrance to keep the 2 year old happy people watching. Our server was very prompt and courteous. We ordered two orders of walnut banana bread with our drinks and it came out quickly and was delicious. A generous serving, just right for sharing without ruining your appetite for your entrée. Everyone was pleased with their orders except the benedicts. The English muffins were burned on the edges, the eggs were overcooked and the Hollandaise sauce was skimpy. With this large a party we did not send them back because we did not want to hold up everyone's meal. We will all return. May change our orders.

I wasn't "wow'd" but the food was pretty dang tasty! We had the buffalo shrimp tacos as an appetizer and they were delicious! The waitress was very nice and helpful. They also had very good specials! There's lots of better restaurants in Winter Park of course, but this place is exceptional!

Been going to Dexter's for years and have always enjoyed it until recently. Maybe the kitchen staff changed or the management but the quality of the food has recently begun to vary from visit to visit, that was not the case before.This is sad because you could always count on Dexter's before to provide good quality food. Service has always been spotty in my opinion but I can overlook that if the food is good. On the up side the outside seating is nice and it's usually a varied and interesting customer's for people watching.

The food is good and the people who go there are a more mature sort a gang. They have class and enjoy getting out for a nice night on the town. It's just a great place to go

I attended Rollins College in Winter Park, FL, back in the mid 90's when Dexter's was but a small SRO wine bar on Fairbanks Avenue. Since moving to Pennsylvania Avenue, they are now offering incredible gourmet food, an incredible wine list (yes, corking is available), and evening entertainment. Large parties, including children are welcome. They don't take reservations, except for large parties and special events.

The menu is filled with incredible gourmet dishes that include, fish, red meats, pork, and many other mouth-watering chef prepared meals. Their salad selection is very enlightening and different -- not just filled with lettuces, but spinach, feta, cranberries -- you name it!

Dexter's also has a seasonal menu that changes every couple of months. The fish special is always my favorite - it's never on the menu .... you have to ask for it by name!
