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.

Quality Experience at Birkdale!

We went for dinner with another couple and the food and service were outstanding. The atmosphere is nice and the location is easy to get to in Birkdale. As with the Uptown Charlotte location, this is fine dining done well. For steak and seafood you can not go wrong. Make reservations or you may be... read more

Elegant, fine dining paired with top notch service and excellent food. It is probably the best restaurant in town. Probably best to make a reservation, especially on a weekend. A little pricy, but worth every penny.

In the heart of Birkdale, Dresslers has great good, wine and ambiance. Plus they have outside seating when the weather cooperates. It is casual, but upscale a great date night sinner

We have had dinner here about 4-5 times and the food has ranged from good to very good and has been inconsistent. The same for the service with ranging once excellent to fair, fair and good, good. There is better value in the area and is a prime location on Birkdale. I believe other eateries have passed them by in... More

My wife and I celebrated our 38th anniversary with dinner at Dressler's. This was our first visit to this restaurant since moving to Huntersville. Both our table and the service were very good, and what's not to love about the location in Birkdale? The mixed greens salad was somewhat over-dressed with balsamic vinaigrette, but otherwise good. The short rib I... More

Went with a date to this restaurant. First the staff was very friendly upon arrival and I waited for my date who was held up in traffic. The bar is proficient and makes a good quality drink. We sat at a table near the window and ordered the Cajun Shrimp for an appetizer. It was OK but the shrimp were... More

This place was recommended to us by the front desk staff at our hotel. It's in an upscale shopping area and the food and drinks were good. Excellent calamari as an appetizer, prepared quite differently with what I'll call fingers rather than the usual rings, and glazed. Entrees selected included so-called Maryland crab cakes (I'm from Maryland and they were... More
