Dressler’s has a close-knit group of managers who have worked together for many years. Chef Scott Hollingsworth,Managers-John Glenn and Johnathan Williford, and Bar Manager Kevin McNamara have worked with owner Jon Dressler for 17 years combined. The camaraderie and warmth are obvious from the moment you walk through the doors. An accommodating staff will ensure that your experience is memorable. The 130-seat, 5190-square-foot, Dressler’s Restaurant is a people place located in that new urbanism, people-driven shopping outpost of Birkdale Village.

It's my first time doing a review, but Dressler's is well worth it! I visited Dressler's during the weekend of NYE 2015. It was a celebratory dinner for my friend who was just proposed to that weekend. The service was impeccable. Our server asked if we were celebrating anything special and we told them about the engagement. He then came... More

On a recent business trip we used Tripadvisor to choose a restaurant for a business dinner. I'm so glad that we did. The service, atmosphere, and food was amazing in so many ways. Everyone left raving about their meals and our experience. Looking forward to my next trip to visit Dresslers again!

Several friends had told us about Dressler as a good restaurant for a date night. So we went. We had a good experience overall. The food was good but unimpressive. The service staff wasn't too cordial. However, our biggest disappointment was at the price of the special. Usually, the specials are price accordingly to a similar item on the menu.... More

We go here often. I can never say enough good about our experiences here. Good quality food, great portions, great service and excellent wine choices. The staff is the best.

My husband and I decided to try Dresslers after reading the great reviews and looking for a new date night spot. We are definitely glad that we did. We made reservations for Friday night, which I highly recommend doing since the restaurant and bar were both packed. Parking at Birkdale can be a bit of a pain, especially on a... More

There is nothing negative that can be said about Dressler's. We have been here numerous times and have not had a bad meal. The atmosphere and service are excellent. It truly has earned its great rotation!

This is a quiet restaurant - I have never seen any advertising, wife heard of it from friends. It is also relatively quiet inside, something so few restaurants seem to offer anymore. We like to hear each other without raising our voices. The food, ah the food -so good and reasonably priced for the quality, ambience and service. If they... More
