Our server was fantastic! She had tons of recommendations and everything was delicious. I had the wedge salad and scallops and it was phenomenal, just a bit salty. The goat cheese appetizer is also to die for

We recently moved to Mooresville, NC, so this was our first visit to Dressler's. I made reservations on Open Table for their Easter Sunday brunch. Once there, we ordered from their three-course, pre-set menu. My husband started with the french onion soup, ordered the pork chop as an entree, and key lime pie for dessert. I started with the tomato/mozzarella salad, ordered the the shrimp linguini as an entree, and also ordered the key lime pie for dessert. We felt the food was good quality and tasty. Particularly, the french onion soup was very good and the shrimp linguini had very large, quality shrimp and also smaller pieces of crab. The sauce was also very good. Overall, our dining experience was good, however, we were underwhelmed by the ambiance of this restaurant.

We enjoyed ourselves at Dressler's restaurant. Our waitress was muffled due to her mask wearing making it tough to hear her explaining the specials..but it is the law. So we understood that...other than that the service was fine. As was the food...it was excellent.

We like to sit at a bar table and we always enjoy getting to catch up with Kevin! Blackened heart of ribeye is the best. And the green beans and broccolini. New Orleans shrimp app was awesome. Hard to beat the service, food and atmosphere here.

No flavor or seasoning to any of the food. For the price I would've expected a wonderful steak. Everything was bland, worse than the hospital cafeteria food. Service was great though. Everyone was friendly. It was very loud due to an 8 person party near our table. Steak was undercooked and dessert was ice cold and tasted like grocery store cake.

If you are looking for a place with a great atmosphere including the surrounding environment, great food, and excellent service Dressler's is the go to restaurant. The quality of service, food, and ambience have been the same each time I have been there. I think Dressler's sets the bar for dinning in the area.

Waitress was poorly trained, not what you would expect at this caliber of price point. Informed manager and didn’t do anything to right the situation and we didn’t ask. No longer a top choice for me.

Me and the boss came here for a special occasion. Seated promptly even though we were earlier than our reservation. Our waiter was Jeff and he was absolutely amazing. He was always coming to check on you and even sparks normal conversation. We learned he actually lived in a part of south Florida that we did so that was good conversation. There was also several other hosts that would come and check on you and ask how everything is. The staff overall is that friendly chic fil A hospitality. That good hospitality goes very far.
Now for the food,
I had a beef medallion and she had the halibut dish. We both received our orders in a timely manner and the food was excellent. No need for any additional seasoning. Also the calamari appetizer is absolutely amazing .
We will definitely be back soon .

I had the lamb and my wife had the seared scallops. The lamb was OK but not nearly as good as the lamb that my wife made for Christmas dinner. The restaurant's lamb had very little flavor - they should have served mint jelly with it so that it had "something" of value. Her scallops were very few in number with the main item on the plate being the plain squash. We had the two meals and each had one glass of wine for a total of $120 and that was definitely not worth the price. On the other hand, all of the employees were very nice and helpful.
