Comment: If you haven’t heard, Dexter's Pub is back open for lunch! That has to be the best news of 2024 so far.

Dex does their Fish Fry all day long and this $21 perch pile was princely. Seven, yes seven, fillets are the centerpiece of this plate and these were big boys. LOTS of fish. Each fillet is lightly breaded which lets the gentle flake of the fish shine through. So well done. It’s complimented perfectly by the thick and creamy tartar’s flavor that enhances the sweetness of each and every bite.

Dexters also remains the standard in waffle fries, has a scrumptious slaw recipe, and keeps it real with a dense little half-slice of rye. By and large, these sides are perfect and do their job without stealing attention from the true star of the show. Brilliant.

Overall, we highly recommend this Fish Fry and really couldn’t be happier the North Street staple is back open at 11am. You can count on us being here a bunch from here on out.
