Dressler's is an upscale contemporary restaurant with patio dining, featuring a menu of steak, imaginative seafood, and creative appetizers paired with an extensive wine list and full service bar specializing in martini's, ports, and single malt scotches.

Dressler’s has a close-knit group of managers who have worked together for many years.

The 130-seat, 5190-square-foot, Dressler’s Restaurant is a people place located in that new urbanism, people-driven shopping outpost of Birkdale Village.

    The service was great, all of the staff was lovely. The food was bland and some was burnt. To be fair, we did not notify any of our servers as we did not want to be an inconvenience. Very lively restaurant, would not recommend for an intimate dinner. Would not recommend to a friend or return again. Sorry. :(

    I have been dining at Dresslers Birkdale as long as they have been open. I don't think any other restaurant in the area has been as consistent in their service, hospitality, food presentation and overall atmosphere. I have nothing negative to say about Dresslers Birkdale and everything is consistently excellent. Thank you all.

    The restaurant and ambience were good. Thankfully, it was relatively quiet. Food was ok, that is good but nothing spectacular, not worth the price in my opinion. Drink prices were more reasonable than most. Nice experience but pricey given mostly average food, portions, service. Would recommend but conditionally.

    The food was very good. Due to a large wedding party being there, the service was not as good as it it usually is. Our waitress was very nice though and it was by no means her fault. Mark

    Everything was just a wow! The 24oz bone-in Cowboy ribeye might be the best steak I have ever eaten. The asparagus was cooked perfectly. The espresso martini was on point, and the cheesecake I was given for my birthday was amazing!

    Amy was FANTASTIC! She made us feel so special as did everyone else at Dressler’s. My wife and I went to dinner for our anniversary and it was perfect. The lamb chops were amazing and my wife’s brisket was extremely tender and flavorful. Thanks Dressler’s, we’ll definitely be back!

    We haven’t been to Dressler’s in years and let me just say we have been missing out. The staff was very attentive, friendly and we didn’t feel rushed at all. The cocktails, appetizers, main meal and dessert were amazing!!! I took the other half of my dinner home so I could have it for lunch today and wow! It tasted just as good as last night. Thank you for a memorable anniversary with my husband.

    We had waited WAY too long to try this amazing restaurant! Absolutely everything about it was perfect -- the atmosphere, service, food ... it was just wonderful ... We went for our anniversary, and they brought us complimentary champagne :) Mr. Jon Dressler served part of our meal -- he's one serious hard worker!! We love all of the Dressler restaurants -- and honestly have no reason to go anywhere else ...

    I have bragged about Dresslers over the last 10 years as how it was in my top 3 restaurants during that time. I have been there over 10 times during that period. I have never been there on a Tuesday; however, the service was really slow and very inconsistent. There was a lack of communication with the servers in the dining room where we were asked multiple times by different servers for the same thing, and then it took too long to get the items requested. Sometimes, we had to ask twice for the item. We were given unfiltered tap water which is a first to my recollection as we did not want sparkling water. The water tasted terrible. The food was timely to the table but it was not the quality of the past visits. The meals were of good quality, just not the exceptional quality I was used to. I brought a friend with my wife and me and I apologized for the time as the experience was not close to all my prior visits. I hope this is isolated and not the norm. Not sure when I will give them another shot though.
