Food was just ok. Definitely not what I expected. Quite frankly I felt it was an over priced Texas road house.

The food tasted fine, but not commiserate with the prices the charge. I expect a $49 steak to be memorable, this one was over cooked and rather tasteless. The waitron, who only had 2 tables to service, "forgot" to enter one of the items I ordered - the restaurant was only maybe 1/3 full, so it was just lack of attention. I was dining solo, which I guess makes people nervous, but I was there celebrating a personal achievement, and I'm a grey tipper - but I feel like my $120 was a complete waste. The waitstaff does seem to fall all over large groups though.

Service very nice and friendly but food was luke warm and took a long time so we had to rush through it as we we going to theatre. We concluded they must be short staffed.

Edie was our server and she took excellent care of us. She made wonderful recommendations, took time to answer all our questions and was very attentive to all our needs.

The food experience at Dressler's is consistently delicious. We have been for dinner on numerous occasions and will be back for our next special night out.

The food and service at Dressler's was very good, but the meal was not relaxing due to the noise level. We finished our meal as quickly as we could to get out of the restaurant.

Once again, we loved our evening out at Dressler's. From the moment you arrive, it feels like family.....warm and inviting. The entrees are exceptional. Our server was the best. We will be back again and again.

Sure wish they would part with the recipe for the calamari.....it is our favorite!

This was a great place to eat dinner for our wedding anniversary. Food was delicious. My steak and my wife's swordfish were cooked perfectly. Only issue was a man dining at another table felt it necessary to talk and curse really loud. Maybe I'm old school but when women and children are present a man should tone his language down to fit the atmosphere. I guess being a gentleman is becoming a lost art.

Crab dip was served "warm" should have been direct from oven. Wrong bottle of wine brought to the table. Grilled Peach salad, peaches luke warm. Scallops over grits, grits were only warm. Good HOT fries.

Tuna appetizer was standard- nothing more than basic. $8 blue cheese wedge salad had 3 halves of tomatoes- overall lacking. The blue cheese was really good though. Salad came out 30 seconds before dinner- bad pace. The steaks are great cuts of meat but order the temp down of you preference. MR was medium and my medium was MW. The sauces (mushroom Demi and us poivre) were both excellent, and saved my overcooked filet. The broccolini was good but again just basic. The sweet potatoes with duck confit was AMAZING. For dessert we had cream brûlée and I highly recommend it. Service and drinks were excellent. Overall giving it a 4, because a $50 steak should never be overcooked.

Everything about this local restaurant group is fantastic. Our server was ON IT. The manager, Eric, is the best. Front end staff; awesome. The food NEVER disappoints. One of the best shrimp and grits ever. So happy to have them so close.

I was by myself and there was a large party next to me. It felt like the waiter paid more attention to the large party than to me. My water and drinks were empty more than once before getting refilled but he seemed to be on top of keeping everyones glasses full for the large party. Still tipped him over 20% but Just something to be aware of.

Great service, fantastic food (filet and rack of lamb) and relaxed atmosphere made for a perfect meal. Nice that owners (I think they were) checked in on us multiple times.
