Our server Miss Lynn was attentive and super genuine. The food was fabulous - well portioned and of superior care, quality and attention to detail. Birkdale may have a lot of recognizable and even somewhat pedestrian franchises on site - Dressler’s is not one of them - Dressler’s is an upscale gem!! A+++++

The small filet mignon was the best steak I’ve ever had! Every bite tender, cooked perfectly, wonderful flavor. We always go to Dressler’s on our anniversary, and we’re never disappointed. Jeff, our server, was awesome, which made the experience even better!

The meal and service was amazing. We were celebrating our anniversary and they gave us a complimentary dessert which rounded out and finished our meal perfectly. The manager came to our table serval times to discuss international culinary differences. Delightful.

Halibut was not as fresh as when I had it recently at the Metropolitan Dressler's. But everything else was excellent. Service is always top notch at Dressler's Birkdake with lots of owner supervision. Very attentive to special diets.

When we are looking to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, etc. we always end up landing on Dressler’s in Birkdale. We know we’re going to get great food and have a wonderful experience. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and the atmosphere is fine but not stuffy. Five stars!

I love the vibe in the restaurant but in this particular experience the soup was salty, my fish was overdone and my date's steak wasn't seasoned at all. Overall it was a mediocre meal that cost him over $200!!

Dresslers was recommended as a client dinner. It was absolutely wonderful. From the service to the food and the atmosphere. At one point, my client and I noted how there was no one on their cell phones. Will definitely be going back.

Another great meal at Dresslers. Friendly staff and amazing food. We brought some nice wine and they were there with a decanter and then later to pour the wine for us. The waitstaff made sure that the picture they took was perfect. She arranged the table prior to taking the picture to make sure the flowers and wine would be seen to best advantage. Great attention to detail.

We tremendously enjoyed our dinner and service, but chose to dine outside due to wonderful weather and live band in the village. Bad choice due to flies. Eat fast because they’ll get it all.
