Populating the corner of Pennsylvania and New England Avenues, just blocks away from Park Avenue, the Winter Park edition of Dexter’s has wine, beer, food, and a comfortable and friendly atmosphere. Local artwork graces the walls, TV’s shine above the bar and, later , on some evenings, a live band might crank out some tunes. Menu options are across the board: pasta, burgers, sandwiches, salads, and appetizers, with a slight emphasis on seafood dishes.
On a side note: you simply cant go wrong with the sweet potato fries. They are delicious. Every time.
Happy hour is Monday through Friday from 3-7pm giving you $2 off everything at the bar except domestic bottles which are $1 off and $10 off any bottles of wine that are sold by the glass. Dexter’s has some pretty good drink concoctions best taken advantage of during happy hour. I can definitely vouch for one of my faves, the Dirty Dexter: a dirty martini with bleu cheese stuffed olives. If that’s not your style there’s a number of other lipsmacking drinks like the “Happy” Gilmore featuring sweet tea and citrus vodkas…perfect on a summer evening or, a fruity alternative, the Pomegranate Martini.
But Thursday night is real special. Ladies night on this Winter Park corner extends happy hour pricing until closing just for the ladies! A particularly fun treat for those women who venture out to celebrate Friday Eve is the $1 champagne special. How often can a body indulge in the bubbly on a regular weeknight? Add to that the live music that revs up after the dinner crowd dwindles and Thursday night is a fine night to be a Winter Park woman!
