We came to Dressler’s for my husbands birthday. We enjoyed the food, atmosphere and service. A little pricey but worth it! We will definitely come back!

We booked reservations for prom dinner. They had a very limited menu for the high school students. It consisted of 3 meal options. The three options did not work with my food allergies and diet. I had to request the full menu. When I did, the waiter had an attitude with me. Overall, the food was good. I would eat here again.

This was our third visit to Dressler's. We've been very happy in the past. On this visit, the wait staff was almost to the point of "over servicing" us. Three different people came to get our drink orders and tell us about specials. We understood the team approach but it felt disorganized. It WAS prom night so we gave them a pass. :) Also the food was extrememly salty for all three dishes we ordered. We were a little disappointed this time.
Love the friendly atmosphere though!

Consistently one of the best restaurants in the city. Have been there around 20 times over the years and have never been disappointed in the food or service. The crab dip is excellent, and the cheesecake rivals any in New York.

The service and food, choice and quality, were outstanding. We also enjoyed an excellent selection of locally brewed beers and the wine list had a nice selection of domestic and imported wines. Parking is not an issue as the restaurant offers a complementary valet service.

I think it was over priced for the amount that you get. Did not like the seating . They sat us at the very 1st table when you come in restaurant right at the door so everyone that came pass we saw them and they saw us .I personally think the table should not be there. All the waiters stood right at the entrance at ... I am assuming to the kitchen area . Looking at the table we were sitting at. Not sure if I will come back.

The food was delicious & our server, Richard, was first class. He made great recommendations
and was attentive but not pushy. We had the okra appetizer, which is highly recommended, chopped salad, filet, blackened ribeye & chicken. The steaks were perfectly cooked but the chicken was a little dry, though the vegetables that came with it were perfect. We shared the light, fluffy cheesecake for dessert, on Richard's recommendation. It was a lovely, airy finish to the meal. Next time, I'd sit on the patio to really enjoy the view.

Can’t wait to go back! This was a meal we did not want to end. Hubby and I were celebrating job promotions, his birthday and the sale of our home. Our waiter was outstanding at making suggestions to enhance our dining. Hubby had 40 oz. tomahawk steak that was incredibly charred on the outside, and tender to the bone. I had meaty crab cakes that were silky and delicious. All accompanied with a 2012 Nappy Valley Silver Oak cab.
