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!

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.

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.

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.
