“Too Trendy for Me”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

The food here is really good and the menu is very interesting. Try the potato chips - yum! I have probably been there about 10 times, never had the same thing twice and never had something that wasn't good. There is loud live music at night and the restaurant has a very trendy, younger bar thing happening. That is not my scene, so I try to go more for an early dinner or Sunday brunch. We did a small baby sprinkle brunch here and it was an excellent choice for location.

“Well worth your time and money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

We went on ladies night, Thursday. Many of the drinks were just $2 and $4 dollars. I had
the chicken sandwich and fries, and a salad. Everything was really fresh. My wife had the chicken Caesar salad, which had huge chunks of chicken on top. The service was fast and courteous. We saw some other dishes going to the table next to ours that looked pretty good, too. We will definitely be back. You get a lot of fresh food for a fair price.

“Good late night spot.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

They are open later than most during the week. 11 pm and later on the weekends. I had a very tasty salmon flatbread. If in the area again I would eat here again.

“good food with entertainment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

Everything we had was good. not great but still good. I got the mahi sandwich and it refused to stay together but I will say its one of the thickest pieces of mahi I have had on a sandwich in a while.My wife got the mediteranian pasta with shrimp. I didn't care for it because it was salty due to the olives and Im not big on pesto but she liked it. The shrimp needed to be grilled. Drinks were good but not overly strong. Waitress was great and was always on top of things. A band plays at 9:30 on the weekends and it does get loud but its always quality bands at any of the Dexters.

“Very good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

I went here a few times during. Business trip and it was very good. They have $1 burger night and there is a pulled chicken Mexican salad that is delicious! I highly recommend it. Thursday night is ladies night, cheap drinks and there's a DJ with dancing.
