Reviewed July 14, 2017  My friend and I visit Punta Gorda every couple years or so, and every time we look forward to coming back to Dean's. You get the biggest portion of food I've ever seen and it's so damn good! Their bucket drinks are delicious, service is amazing (our server, Keri, asked if we wanted to keep our buckets and when we said yes she rinsed them out and dried them for us), and the live music keeps things entertaining. Definitely a must if you're in the area!

Reviewed July 2, 2017 -  We went fairly early on a Saturday night and were seated straight away. They have a nice patio area, but we chose to eat inside. The menu is huge,everything from different starters to Mexican and non-Mexican dishes. Robert had a chicken sandwich, which he said was very good. I chose a burrito with ground beef, lettuce, tomato and cheese inside with melted cheese on top and it was great. I also had a margarita, which was delicious! Give Dean's a try!

Reviewed July 4, 2017 - Celebrating the 4th of July in downtown Punta Gorda, stopped here for dinner, first time. I've heard a lot of great things about Dean's and it was all true. We had the taco salads and they were big and hearty, along with house margaritas. Everything was great, great service by Deana, delicious food and great atmosphere. We will definitely be back, many choices on the menu, can't wait to come back!!

Reviewed July 7, 2017 - I tell ya.... We have been here many, many times in 3 years and JODY is the best server we have ever had. She is very attentive even though she was extremely busy on a Friday night. Dean's never disappoints, but tonight was noteworthy. Great service JODY. Hope to see you again!
