Great atmosphere, service and especially food.

Visited here for an anniversary dinner and it also happened to be restaurant week. We made reservations in advance which I would recommend to do. The server was attentive but not over bearing. I tried the pork chop which is an extremely thick cut but was cooked perfectly. All other aspects of the... read more

Best restaurant week meal we every had. The salmon was cooked perfectly and the carrot cake was one of the best I've eaten. Definitely worth the price for a celebration.

This is one of my favorite places in Huntersville. Kevin the bartender makes the best cosmo in the world. The food is outstanding. The service is ALWAYS consistent- its EXCELLENT. I usually sit in the bar/lounge with friends having cocktails and appetizers.

Have eaten there multiple times with friends. The food is consistently good and there are one or two specials each night that are usually creative. It's not cheap, most entrées are in the 25 to 32 range but it is worth what you pay. We will continue to go here.

Hostess was very unfriendly and dressed very provocatively in my opinion. the food was good but extremely overpriced in my opinion not a big selection either. the restaurant itself is a nice building though in Birkdale Village.

The food is pretty good, but a little overpriced. We only go when there is a groupon or living social special.

My husband and I chose Dresslers, Birkdale, for dinner to celebrate our anniversary--and were impressed. We were warmly greeted, seated outdoors as requested, and received a complimentary glass of champagne. The wine list, food and overall experience were great. Our waitress was very attentive, and the manager greeted us at the beginning and end of our evening. He even presented... More

I celebrated my birthday here with my wife, and her sister and husband. We all really enjoyed ourselves. The food was excellent as was the service. I had the grouper and it was outstanding. The Cree brûlée was classic and delicious. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

We first ate at Dresslers shortly after Jon opened in Huntersville and, subsequently dined at his venue in Charlotte. Five years ago we moved out of state and recently visited with friends in NC and dined again at Dresslers. It was still outstanding and equal to most restaurants in San Francisco where we typically dine several times a month. Service,... More
