Outstanding food. Outstanding service. Outstanding drinks. One of our new favorites. Highly recommend.
One of our favorite restaurants. As always, excellent food and service.
Food and service not what is used to be. Average at best.
Braised short ribs were the best I ever had
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.
Always a pleasure. Consistent service and fantastic food. Lamb Chops were wonderful.
It was our first experience going here. It was great! We will be back!
Food and service were amazing! It was our anniversary and we got a complementary glass of champagne which was amazing!
Excellent service, atmosphere favorable since C19 took effect. Our 4th year on September 8 our 52 wedding anniversary. Look forward to being there next year. Ton recognized us and everyone did a great job,
Dinner was wonderful. The waitress just forgot to use my coupon for our free appetizer and we didn't notice until later. Always a wonderful place for dinner.
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
Our service made the evening. Bobby is by far the best!! The food was outstanding but she made the evening. Went for dinner, left after a total celebration. Highly recommend dining here & coming early to walk around or grab a glass of wine at the various locations in the area prior!!
Good folks, incredible food. My “go to” place.. all the time.
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!
Food was wonderful and service was great!
Thi was one of those memorable evenings with close friends celebrating an absent friend. The food and the service helped make it a night we will all remember with fondness.
Excellent food and services as always.
Wonderful experience. Staff was amazing.

Great atmosphere, wait staff were excellent at social distancing & masks! My friend & I were very happy
Excellent experience on all fronts. Great food, ambience, service.
Food was excellent and the services outstanding. Management came by to make sure our dinner met our expectations.
It seems we hit all the right notes but ambience. Friday night could be a bit of challenge when we have so many guests dining in with us. Thank you for you comment.
Always consistently really good food. Love to eat in the bar area too.
Thank you come by soon.
Our Waiter Adam was excellent! The food was fabulous. We dined at Dressler's for my husband's birthday and we had a marvelous time.
Thank you for the shout out. Adam is still improving. Come by and see him for your next visits.
Great find for that special dinner grouper special was Devine
We are here for you anytime you think of us. Thank you.
Great to dine tellers again! Very clean, well spaced! Outstanding food!
Thank you very much!
As always the meals were delicious. The starters, calamari and crab cake were off the chain. I wish i had selected the wedge as opposed to the mixed green salad. Not a big fan of yard greens. Anyway, the 8 oz filet and the haddock entrees were perfect. Staff was very attentive and the manager was very accommodating and super friendly. The only questionable thing was my pre-dinner mixed drink, I think the tonic water mixer was flat. Kinda ruins the drink. Overall, the experience was great as usual. We've never had anything but a wonderful and relaxed meal at Dresslers.
We do apologize about that cocktail. If there should be anything that you think it does not pleasing, we would love you sharing that with us. We would like to make it right. Thank you for your comment and rating. We are looking forward to see you in the future.
Food was delicious as always and staff was incredibly attentive.
Thank you very much for your comment. We could not be happier seeing our guests enjoy their time.
From the courtesy valet, to the fast seating for our reservation. We were impressed from the beginning. Our waitress was courteous and knowledgeable. She suggested a great cocktail that me and my wife to really enjoyed. We tried the calamari and the ahi tuna appetizers which was scrumptious. And the ribeye and halibut was phenomenal. We were very impressed with the service and quality and price we shall be back again.
The quality and stella service are pinnacle of our establishment. Thank you for you patronage.
Sit inside, better service and you get a tablecloth, too.
KeithL, Thank you for your comment.
We used a Groupon deal to go to Dresslers, the staff could not be nicer and food was fantastic. Overall we had a fantastic experience.
We are glad that you enjoyed your experience with us.
fantastic meal and service. Truly one of the best restaurants in the Lake Norman area.
Thank you JimS. We are always here waiting for your return.
Excellent as usual.
Always excellent food, service, and experience!!!
Another great experience at Dresslers! I wish I could remember our waitress's name because she was outstanding. Very personable and attentive, but not too attentive.
Nick did an outstanding job taking care of us; the staff was so friendly, and the food was wonderful.
Had a date night with hubby at Dressler’s. We were seated immediately and a server came right to our table. Everything was fantastic! The tenderloin appetizer was outstanding as was all the food but mmmmmmmmmm on the tenderloin especially. Keep in mind this place is pricey so not a place we go super often. But we are never disappointed here for sure.
Service was superb! Social distancing protocols in place, single use menus, hand sanitizers where you need them. Food was delicious- all of our favorites still on the menu and a few additions!
As always, excellent food and service.
