We have tried Dresslers three time in the past two years, and the noise level he’s been a problem every time. Service was excellent and the food was good-but not great. Also, we thought the wine by the glass menu should be broader for a restaurant of this caliber. There are just too many options for us to return anytime soon.

I’ve been going for 15 years and last night was the best the food and service have ever been! It was our anniversary and we were checked on frequently for our celebration without it being intrusive — they struck the perfect balance. On top of that, the food was phenomenal and the desserts were exceptional! Last night just reinforced why we love going there for special occasions! Would, and have, highly recommend this place to others.

We NEVER miss this restaurant when we come down from PA to visit several times a year. The Blackened Heart of the Rib Eye is definitely, hands down, the best steak we have had ANYWHERE...service is outstanding, love the atmosphere and food is spectacular...a must to try!

Celebrated our wedding anniversary at Dressler's on November 11th. The food was spectacular and our server superb. Don't know how my husband could manage desert after the generous entree, but he said the key lime pie was delicious. I seriously doubt we'll ever be back in the area, but if we are, we'll be certain to find our way back to Dressler's.

Food is always great at Dressler's and our waitress was awesome. I know there is a time limit these days at restaurants so they can seat as many as possible in the short time allowed. We were seated one on bench facing restaurant and the other facing the wall...we asked our waitress what is their time limit and she said 2 hours. There was a waiter that came over and reached across one of our shoulders to pick up wine glasses, he came out of nowhere and it seemed like he was ready for us to leave. We had tipped 25% in cash felt like there was rudeness with other wait staff and not certain why...there were plenty of open tables that had not been cleaned, I think he could have spent his time cleaning elsewhere.

We throughly enjoyed our experience. It started with the complimentary valet parking which made it so easy We were seated promptly by friendly staff Our waiter was welcoming and well versed on menu. He was willing to recommend and assist with options from wine to appetizers and entrees. We were party of 6 and ordered Three appetizers which were delicious and plentiful. We all ordered different entrees and all were exceptional. We never felt rushed and staff was always attentive to anything we might need. Would highly recommend

This visit was not good. The food taste and presentation of the food has fallen quite a bit since my last visit a few months ago. And, the staff sat a large table of noisy people smack in the middle of the dining room which negatively affected every table. A rookie move and not one I expected from Dressler's. I hope they find a way to do some mystery shopping and right the ship while there is still time. The waiters and bartender were wonderful, but it takes more than that to provide a good experience.

The best way to express my experience at Dressler Birkdale is consistent. We eat there fairly regularly and the reason is consistency, the arrival, the wait staff, the food. I have never been disappointed. Thank you guys and gals at Dresslers Birkdale.

Our waiter took great care of us and very seldom were we waiting plus he didn’t hover. The restaurant was noisy so hard to have discussions. Food was delivered timely but a couple of the entrees were incomplete - i.e. no crab or roasted red pepper on the haddock . Healthy size portions that make the prices almost reasonable.

Wonderful dinner and great service from our waiter Adam. Onion soup, Halibut and Corvina were all fabulous. Manager was very visible and made sure everything was to our liking and that we didn't want for anything. Will definitely be returning.

Leisurely dinner with friends after Regal "No time to Die"t" flick. Rachel was a delightful server. Started with the hot all crab dip, Mmmm. The shrimp and lobster linguine was nicely shrimped and bits of lobster in perfectly prepared linguine in a nice cream sauce. Don't miss out on the cremé brulee. Finished off with a cup of fresh, hot, black coffee.
