Nice, high end place in LKN. Good service, nice wine selections, good food with specials that are based on what they source. Not cheap, but very well worth it.

This was our first visit to Dresslers since they closed their Max's Alley Restaurant in Concord a couple of years ago. We started with the Low County Crab appetizer which had very large chunks of crab meat. My wife went with the sea bass over lobster risotto while I had the pan seared scallops. Both meals came hot out of... More

This restaurant has a respectfully laid-back atmosphere, a diverse menu and moderate pricing. It was a pleasant surprise to dine in such a place, the food was superb, the sait staff available yet unobtrusive. A lovely evening.

Dresslers is one of my favorite restaurants in the Lake Norman area. I love the warm goat cheese and garlic appetizer. The calamari is also amazing. We have never had a bad meal or dessert here. They often have Groupon deals sometimes which is also nice. Walking around Birkdale before or after your meal is also great!

On the recommendation of a coworker, I made reservations for 7 pm on a midweek night. We arrived a few minutes early, but were seated promptly. Our waitress asked if we were celebrating anything and we explained that it was our anniversary. She left us to look over the menu but quickly returned with two complementary glasses of champagne.

We made a reservation for 7:30 on Saturday night. The staff was friendly, and we were seated promptly. The atmosphere was loud, crowded, and not as nice as we had hoped. We could hear the conversations of the couples at the tables next to us. The tables felt way too close together and made the experience not as nice. The... More

We've been to Dressler's on numerous occasions. At times it is an amazing Resturant and other times it's just average. Sunday night when we visited it was a little below average. It was very busy for a Sunday night so instead of waiting for an hour we chose to sit at a bar table, that was offered to us by... More

A nice setting in the middle of Birkdale Village. Prompt seating, good service and a warm feeling. From appetizers to wine to entrees to desert to coffee. All was very good. We had the grouper special, the halibut, and a steak and all were excellent. I would recommend this for that special dinner.
