Just wanted to get out and enjoy a date night. We were sat next to a group that was beyond loud and every other word was profanity. The air conditioner was turned on and it was 40 degrees outside, plus we were sitting by a cold window. Our server was moving so fast we felt rushed the whole time. He never introduced himself and came back at least 3 times in less than 10 minutes to see if we were ready to order our entree AFTER I told him we wanted a casual and relaxed meal and we were not ready. We had not even gotten the appetizer. He literally was moving so fast that when he put our plate down the crab cake pretty much slid off. I had to ask for the specials. I had to ask for silverware. I had to ask for the dessert menu. I would have had a better experience going through a drive through and eating in my car.

Dressler’s was amazing! Great dinner for 4. Made reservations the previous day, and was even able to modify my reservation the morning of to accommodate another guest. Service and food was amazing, our waitress was one of a kind who made great recommendations!

Enjoyed my meal at Dresslers - started off with pimento cheese and little slices of crusty bread to spread it on - so good then on to crabcakes - full of crabmeat and the sauce was amazing - could only eat one because I wanted to save room for cheesecake - it was delicious - had a lemon drop martini that they made especially for me and I told them light on the alcohol and it was mixed perfectly - thanks for a great meal!!

We went here to celebrate our son graduating from UNCC. The food was cooked perfectly! We enjoyed delicious cocktails and wine. Our server was on top of everything and very attentive! We were closer to the entrance and right by the kitchen. So there was a little bit of noise, but not much. Very pleased with our experience at Dressler’s. We’ll be back!

Every dish was either inedible or not what was described on the menu. Our waitress was awesome, and the manager was very understanding. But we will never return, unfortunately the food was so disgusting we aren't willing to give it another chance.

This was our Christmas dinner party for 5 people; so nice and small. Isabell was our server and she did an outstanding job. We appreciated that. We were not near people, so we could hear each other talk; very nice and pleasant. The food was just delicious. They had a 3 for $39 deal that was outstanding. We expected smaller portions (and would have been fine with that) but NOOO they were normal sizes. and delicious. Glad we picked Dresslers. It was just what we wanted and expected.

Great service. Got sat right away even though we were wary for our reservation, wait staff greeted us immediately and took great care of us. We started with the Fried Okra and worked into the Boneless Beef Short Rib and everything was fantastic. Highly recommend to anyone looking to have a great time!

I found the decor to be completely unappealing. There was not one single piece of decoration on any table. No floorplants or any other floor decorations and only two monotone pieces of wall art within sight. The room was fairly dark and the light fixtures were unremarkable in any way. The food and cocktails were excellent. Our server was a delight. We had a shared appetizer, two entrées, two cocktails and a shared dessert for about $150. There was a party of eight young people about 6 feet away from us who were very loud the whole time we were there.
