If you’ve been on the lookout for the perfect restaurant for you and your family, look no further than your own backyard at Dexter’s Lake Mary, located in Colonial TownPark.

With a mouthwatering menu and seasonal offerings to satiate all your cravings, Dexter’s is a unique contemporary American restaurant with a twist that fits every occasion. Grab a delicious burger and a beer with friends or enjoy a gourmet meal and handcrafted cocktail with your special someone.

“We let the food speak for itself,” says Executive Chef Richard Kutza, who has been with Dexter’s for 13 years. “Our food is diverse, it’s creative, it’s fresh, and it’s consistent. When you come to Dexter’s, you know you’re going to have a quality meal. You can have fine dining without the price tag.”

The award-winning dinner menu features delicious items like the Lobster and Chicken Florentine – a seared chicken breast over a parmesan risotto-stuffed, pesto-balsamic marinated Portobello mushroom topped with a lobster florentine cream. Looking for a lighter meal? Try the popular Mediterranean Grilled Salmon served with lemon orzo primavera and sautéed spinach and finished with a tomato caper cream.

Fan favorites also include the Smith Salmon Salad and Grilled Mahi with Agave Pineapple Salsa, both of which highlight the restaurant’s fresh fish options available daily.

Guests can also tantalize their taste buds by trying a daily special – one of Chef Kutza’s favorite ways to showcase his culinary team’s creativity in the kitchen. 

“Every day we create something new with our daily specials, and it’s a great way for me to offer something the guests may be asking for,” he says. “Whether it’s making a dish or a soup from scratch, it’s flat-out going to taste great.”

Dexter’s menu also features an award-winning brunch (including the best Bloody Marys in town and endless mimosas), happy-hour specials every day of the week, a kids menu, and weekly specials like $1 Burger Nights on Tuesdays (plus 50 cents per topping), Wine Down Wednesdays, and live music on Friday and Saturday nights. And, don’t forget to bring your furry companion for a night out. Dexter’s is pet-friendly and welcomes all members of your family.

“Dexter’s is a lively place that has a little bit of something for everybody,” says Maribel Ramos, the restaurant’s marketing and catering manager. “We love our local families, and we want you to feel like a part of ours.”
