Reviewed Jan 4, 2018  Deans is consistently good, staff is great, outdoor seating and entertainment is always popping. The bar and bar staff are also wonderful. One of the best spots in Punta Gorda.

Reviewed Jan 3, 2018  Dean's has one of the most varied menus around. The chimi made with shredded beef is fantastic. They also have 7 layer salad. A favorite of mine and I've never seen it served in a restaurant. They have steak and seafood and some home cookin' stuff too. Lots of bar food appetizers. There is an inside dining room but the outside dining and bar is large and they have some great bands there in the evenings. Never, ever had a bad meal there.
