First time at this location and very disappointing. Expensive for the quality of food and wine. Service was second to none, but it was so loud we had to shout to be heard .

Will give them a second chance based on reputation.

Our opinion, Dressler's is the best upscale dining restaurant in Lake Norman area. We love this place for special occasions, and anytime you want to have a really great meal. Their food and their service is outstanding. As special bargain, they sometimes post deals on Groupon.

Another enjoyable dining experience at Dressler's.
I had the short ribs and a Cesar salad. The ribs were excellent. Flavorful and tender enough I did not need a knife. The ribs were served over mashed potatoes with a flavorful sauce. The Cesar salad great, although I miss having an anchovy or two. My wife had the crab cakes and a chopped salad. The crab cakes were heavy on crab and very light on other ingredients, just the way they should be. I had a glass of Hahn Pinot Noir and she had a glass of Velvet Devil Merlot. Both were outstanding company to the food.
Ashley was our server. Attentive service without being intrusive.
We definitely will return.

Have a great time, this was my first time visiting Dressler’s and I’ll be returning soon. My server Dennis was awesome and super sweet, loved him. This is a great place for a date night, and the food was soooo good. Loved the goat cheese and pita bread.
