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.

    Dressler's has been providing exceptional service and food for 19 years at the same location. It is and has been a place I always take guests to as I am certain they will be impressed. Jon and Kim Dressler are the finest people in the industry!

    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.

    We went on a Monday for an anniversary dinner and super pleased that the front desk had read our reservation and congratulated us. Attention to detail is important at this price point. Food was served hot/made to order and delicious. Short rib complaint would be that the potatoes needed seasoning. The halibut was perfect. Appetizers were delish - the french onion soup was well seasoned. The garlic goat cheese was not quite what I was expecting (the cheese served in bubbling hot oil with garlic cloves scattered) but was tasty of its own accord. Service was attentive and for the most part discreet - the kind of place where your water glass isn't allowed to drop below a certain level and the wine was refilled consistently. Much appreciated all of the friendly staff. Atmosphere is what you would want for a quiet dinner with your spouse. Only jarring note about the décor was the dropped ceiling - it really didn't match the look the place was going for. Convenient location in Birkdale Village with plenty of free parking. They offered valet as well, but we didn't avail ourselves of it (the staff was great about checking with us during the dessert course). Cappucinos and dessert to go - alas the portion sizes are more than adequate and we took ours home with us to enjoy later. Will definitely be back.

    We opted to eat outdoors but the area was dirty and hardly fitting a restaurant of this caliber. The noise from the outdoor TV was overpowering and detrimental to the atmosphere.

    I took my wife to Dressler’s for our 14 year wedding anniversary. The restaurant was very nice and inviting. The staff was amazing and super attentive. The food was wonderful. And the pumpkin cheesecake is amazing!! Highly recommend! Thank you for the wonderful experience and making our anniversary dinner special.

    We asked to substitute mashed potatoes instead of fingerling potatoes on a dish. We got that, but then were charged $7 for the mashed potatoes as a side. This was not explained to us and it's our fault we didn't notice until after we had paid.

    We had such an amazing experience last night! We were celebrating our 20th anniversary & Dressler's did not disappoint! The service was great, the food was delicious, the atmosphere was relaxed so we didn't feel rushed to finish. Our server, Calyn was absolutely wonderful. This was our first time visiting and we will definitely be return customers. Thank you for helping us celebrate!

    We had a wonderful anniversary dinner at Dressler's. We were greeted with a "Happy Anniversary" at the door. Our server offered us a free champagne toast and our choice of a complimentary dessert. We had the calamari as an appetizer; my husband ordered braised short ribs; I ordered the rack of lamb. Everything was delicious and the servings were generous. Our server, a very personable young woman, even gave us hugs as we left! This was our first dinner at Dressler's. We will definitely return.

    Food and service were good. Price compared to quality of food was good. Price compared to environment was poor. Felt like they put as many tables in as the fire marshal would allow. No barriers or atmosphere. Cheesecake Factory seating with a fine dining menu.

    Our birthday dining experience 8/26/22 was excellent! First time dining here - will return! French onion soup, wedge, calamari & seared tuna apps all prepared fresh & to perfection! We decided to have more apps for our main course as to try a variety of their delicious creations. Truly beautiful job by the back-of-house! Kudos!! We finished our dining event with cream brulee & carrot cake with after dinner cocktails!! Our server Tamera was on point with her every visit to our table & her suggestions when asked. Awesome service!! We also bought a gift-card for a friend feeling confident they will also have wonderful dining experience from The Dressers team!! Hope to return real soon - ArLisa

    When we arrived we were immediately provided with water, and then we did not see a server for about15 to 20 minutes. Fortunately, a server, (Bobbie sp) came and asked if we had be waited on. Told her no. She said she would take care of us as I don't this this was her table. She was absolutely amazing. She couldn't do more for us. Please give her a thata way to go. Advise your other servers to at the least acknowledge their presence and say will be with you shortly
