  • "I enjoyed my dining experience very much. The food was delicious and very tasty. The portions were very adequate and the atmoshere was great. I appreciate the server who willingly took a photo of our family as we celebrated my daugther's birthday. I would like to suggest that more choices be added to the children's menu. Thanks for a great evening."

  • "We went to celebrate our 12 year anniversary. The food was very mediocre. We had to send a filet back twice due to it being completely undercooked. I ordered the rack of lamb that was completely flavorless. I instead ordered thaw wag you beef and again very bland and up enjoyable. The manager did comp one of our meals and they were very apologetic. I do not recommend this restaurant to anyone."

    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Dresslers turned out to be ok but not worth the price point. My wife and I chose two of their most popular items-the halibut and heart of ribeye. Both were good but slightly overcooked. The service was adequate but felt rushed and not personable. The patio has a great view of the city. The calamari was excellent."

  • "We go to Dressler's for all our family birthdays. The food is always good, from steak to seafood, we are always pleased. The wine list is not too pricey but there is a good selection. Eating outdoors is a little more upbeat and noisy while inside is calm with low lighting. Our server, Jerry, did an excellent job. He was fun and knew the menu very well. And the best part of dinner at Dressler's is the cheesecake made by the owner's mother. Absolutely delicious! We now order an entire cake for the holidays!"

  • "I've been to Dresslers in the past and trust me there's always a reason to return. The warm welcome at the door, greeted with friendly smiles to the service, food, and atmosphere, is phenomenonal! We celebrated our 16 year wedding anniversary and received complimentary champagne and dessert. Dresslers is definitely worth experiencing."

  • "Wonderful attention from the moment we pulled up to the curb in a rainstorm. Warm welcome. Excellent service from our wait staff. Perfectly paced evening, with no sense of rushing or extended delays. Men were very pleased with their menu selections. Women chose trout and found both trout options a little too strongly flavored. Would have preferred more subtle seasonings. But all were extremely satisfied with the overall meal, including a birthday slice of key lime pie!"

  • "When asked, our server helped us make very good choices from the menu after he asked us a few easy questions. He knew so much about each dish, it was if he were going to go back and prepare it himself. The food was amazing, and the portions were perfect and beautifully presented. We felt like the restaurant staff actually enjoyed their jobs there. We will definitely return."

  • "We love Dressler's, and this location is impressive. The interior is great, the view is awesome. Service was very good, but not what I would consider outstanding. The food is usually outstanding, but this time was just slightly off for 2 reasons: (1) both my wife and I got the halibut and both pieces were overcooked... not bad enough to send back, but definitely overcooked and dried out a little; (2) my wedge salad was 30% inedible because of the inner, hard, white part... I've gotten this salad before at Dressler's and it's usually not like that."
