Had a nice dinner for anniversary. The pimento cheese appetizer is excellent, a must get. The calamari is good but I have had better at several other places. My ribeye was a little beyond the medium-rare I prefer, but was still very good. Overall a very good place to eat.

Steak was very good and reasonably priced. They then to push the wine but other wise good food. On a previous visit had a waitress give a demeaning attitude when asked about an item on menu that was in french as if I'm suppose to know french.( fancy name for basically a strip steak.

I have dined here in the past and have had wonderful experiences. Tonight was not one of them. Four of us sat at the bar for predinner drinks. We asked for a drink menu and my husband was handed a tablet to scroll through while the bartender stood there impatiently waiting, once he made his selection it had to be... More

Dressler's provides a restaurant experience unlike any other we've had. We went for our wedding anniversary and were treated not only to complimentary champagne but also a dessert of our choice. Our crab dip appetizer was exactly what we wanted - warm and perfectly complimentary to the toasted bread provided. We had the salmon and the linguine as entrees. Both... More

Dressler's is located in the heart of Huntersville, & is easily located in the "shopping'' area of Birkdale. There's ample parking on the street, as well in a nearby garage.... Dressler's atmosphere is well-done, understated & easily sophisticated--in other words, very pleasant. The entire staff, especially the waiters, are friendly & well-trained. Dressler's dinner menu offers several fine selections, &... More

We love Dressler's. The food is always delicious and the service is excellent. If you haven't tried the Just for the Halibut, it's a must! The desserts are to die for. Also, their calamari appetizer is the absolute best...period!

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 disappointed as it is popular... 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.
