I've been living down the street for about 9 years now and I've seen this location transform from Stevens into The Sandlot, then into Dexters. I gotta say that it's great to finally have a decent beer selection in the neighborhood. I had a great time at the New Holland pre Great Taste of the Midwest party and had the pleasure of attending a special tapping of Dogfish 120 Minute Ale. The tap list is eclectic and ever changing with a good selection of local and U. S. Micros.

The atmosphere is fine for a neighborhood pub. I actually like a little less TV with my beer but if some sports are on then there are plenty of good seats/tables around the bar. I've also been down for some volleyball league action and my wife has had a good time during trivia night.

It's also great to have a place I can walk to for some takeout. I'm a big fish fry advocate and Dexter's was well prepared and tasty. (898 characters)

Stopped in on a Thursday afternoon, around 2pm. I could see how this place could be more lively at night, so take my rating for vibe accordingly. There was a bar area with a few high-tops and a restaurant area that looks like it has seen it's better days....do yourself a favor and sit in the bar area. I had a burger, the wife had a hummus plate.....both tasty and more than enough to fill us both, in fact we both took some home. About 20 taps, all craft, and a ridiculous amount of quality bottles, this place was definitely a nice spot to kick off a 4 day beer weekend in Wisconsin's capitol. (596 characters)
