Wonderful, attentive service. We dined outside and felt Covid-19 precautions were managed well. We ordered two appetizers and one entree-each was delicious. I highly recommend Dresslers.

We went to celebrate our anniversary and were rewarded by a spectacular meal and evening. We ate at Dressler's once before (during restaurant week) and were underwhelmed. This time everything we ate and drank were exceptional. From the caesar and wedge salads, to the lobster tails and halibut with crab entrees. No room for dessert but I did also enjoy my bourbon manhattan. We ate outside which was pleasant, but the tables inside are nicer with the tablecloths.

The decor was updated classic look, though simple, the service was excellent and the food is reliably delicious and interesting. We will be back and highly recommend. Adequate Spacing and masks were enforced. Indoor seating and private room available. Outdoor seating on sidewalk near road.

Waitress did not go over specials. We over heard them as the waiter was going over them the next table over after we had gotten our meal. She did not check to see if everything was good. Food was so so for the money . The only thing good out our experience was the food was hot when it got to our table.

Food and desserts were great. The tuna is always great and my wife had the special - blackened grouper, which was awesome. Had the cheesecake and apple cake for dessert. Both were great. Server was friendly and attentive. Dressers is consistently great food, great service and a great atmosphere.

Went to celebrate my wife landing a new job. Took my wife and two daughters. Dressler’s is consistently good. One of our favorite upscale restaurants. It was a little noisy and it was difficult to hear the waitress when she was wearing a mask but the food was great and we will be back again. Can’t go wrong eating here.

The food was great and the service also. Love the onion soup and shrimp & grits was very good
I do hope they can get back to the pre-Covid menu soon.
My only suggestion is the need to expand non-seafood choices
My family are not seafood eaters and the appetizer menu is quite seafood heavy Steak chicken and seafood are entree choices ; 2 of 3 entree specials of the night were seafood Minor point but I had to ask for bread as it was not offered

Always a great choice for date night. Quiet and not crowded on a weekday evening with excellent, attentive service. The Thai Calamari is a unique dish not often seen anywhere else and the Just for the Halibut is a long time classic!
